New Years Eve Makeup 2016 – Feat- Urban Decay Vice 2


What a long and crazy year 2015 has been. From a really crappy start came a great ending. So much has changed for the better. I found my niche with beauty blogging, I got married and found some wonderful people along the way.

Today,  have a New Years Eve look that’s kind of out of the ordinary. I can across a picture of me on Facebook Memories from when I first got my hands on The Vice 2 Palette and I created a jewel-toned eye using greens and blues. After I saw the picture I had to recreate the look for ya’ll.

The star of the show today is the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette. I’m still head over feet for the Vice 2. Okay, let’s get started before I pass out, much sleep deprived!

I can’t get enough of “Damaged” (Jewel tone Green) I think we’ll be seeing him again in the future where he can really shine.  photo 20151230_012946_zpshp8sjua2.jpgI used a flat shader brush to pack this shade over the inner part of the lid and blended across.  photo 20151230_013348_zpsbdfelm0f.jpg photo 20151229_215458_zpse1wqyose.jpgThen I took “Madness” (royal metallic blue) from the center of the lid to the outer corner on the same brush.  photo evrdvrdv_zpseogjlvcp.jpg

I gave the crease a soft blend with the fluffy brush from earlier and cleaned up the fallout and edges.

So pretty!
 photo 20151230_013401_zpssl3bfg4l.jpgI lined my upper lash line with the gel liner and a fine point liner brush.  photo 20151230_012955_zpsyl5r9zcl.jpgI also highlighted my inner corner and brow bone with “Dope”  photo pixlr_20151231042022499_zpslytj0nxx.jpgFor even more zazz, I patted “Midnight in Paris” From the Too Faced Le Grande Palais Palette along the liner while it was still tacky.
 photo 20151230_012652_zpscewcszcv.jpg“Midnight in Paris” is pretty much a blackened blue chunky glitter so it worked great with a sticky base to cling too.
 photo 20151229_224046_zpsjlpwfviq.jpgI repeated the same steps on the bottom lash line bringing “prank” out to meet the top lid and tappering into a wing. I tight lined to kind of ground the look.

The last thing for the eyes is tons of mascara! False lashes would be great with this look too.

On to the face. When using blue eye shadows you really wanna make sure all the fallout is cleaned up and try to brighten the under eye, as well as perfect the skin as much as possible. Blue shades than to wash me out and not look to great on me but with using the warm transition shade on the eyes and the black liner it helped.
 photo 20151229_225803_zpsq3mimekl.jpgI tried to make the skin as bright and healthy looking as I could.

Maybelline Master Prime by Face Studio in Blur + Redness.

I used a color correcting primer to reduce redness first. If you would like a review of the primer, let me know below!

For contour, I whipped out an old favorite.

 I went for a nice pink blush

For a highlighter, I used the Pacifica Ethereal Eye Shadow.

Lastly, on the lips, I went for berry. I used the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in “Wolvesmouth” because it’s a dark fuchsia with a blue sheen and on top a bit of the NYX Butter Lip Gloss in “Devils Food Cake”
