For my first makeup look using the Urban Decay Smoked Palette, I came up with a basic neutral smokey eye that can be worn during the day and into the night. I used three colors: Kinky (matte ivory), Mushroom (shimmery warm pale gray), and Barlust (metallic dark golden brown). Kinky and Barlust are new and exclusive to this palette. I really like how applying Mushroom on the lid turned out — it’s a subtle gray that adds something special to a typical brown smokey eye.
This look features two Inglot eye shadows from my 40-pan Freedom System palette I picked out in Las Vegas last summer but haven’t used until now. One is a silvery white with pearly sheen (“447″), and the other is a dark gray with frosty finish (“23″). To this day, I have not come across an Inglot eye shadow that I didn’t like. The color payoff on these are great, just like all the other Inglot eye shadows I’ve used so far. They are very easy to blend as well!
I’ve been making mix CDs for my mom ever since I got my first CD burner sometime in the 90s. One of my favorites is a Christmas mix that has a song about a lonely Christmas tree. My mom really liked this song after hearing it once on the radio, but she didn’t know most of the lyrics. I eventually surprised her with it in my mix CD. This makeup look is inspired by Stevie Wonder’s “One Little Christmas Tree” — it has a little tree standing in the snow lighting up a gray sky with its gold star.
Here’s another look using the Limited Edition Paint Pot in “For Effect” from the MAC Glitter & Ice Holiday Colour Collection. I used the same charcoal black pigment from my Classic Black Smokey Eye Look, but since I applied it on top of “For Effect”, the result was more of a metallic gray rather than black. Just for fun, I also drew an extended black line from the outer lower lash line, going parallel to the eyeliner wing.
This is the first makeup look I came up with using MAC Limited Edition Paint Pot in “For Effect” (see my review). To make the Inglot gray eye shadow bolder and to add more sparkle to the lid, I used For Effect first as a base on my lid and then applied the eye shadow on top of it. I also applied a matte pink eye shadow to tie in the new MAC “Rebel” lipstick I just bought.
