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!
First things first, brows, primer, base shade on the lid. Done.
Next up, transition shade. I used “Rewind” (warm camel) shade for this. I blended “Rewind” in the crease area toward the brow bone with a fluffy brush like the one pictured below.
Now things get fun! 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. I used a flat shader brush to pack this shade over the inner part of the lid and blended across. Then I took “Madness” (royal metallic blue) from the center of the lid to the outer corner on the same brush.
I lined my upper lash line with the gel liner and a fine point liner brush. I also highlighted my inner corner and brow bone with “Dope” For even more zazz, I patted “Midnight in Paris” From the Too Faced Le Grande Palais Palette along the liner while it was still tacky.
“Midnight in Paris” is pretty much a blackened blue chunky glitter so it worked great with a sticky base to cling too.
I 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.
I tried to make the skin as bright and healthy looking as I could.
I used a color correcting primer to reduce redness first. If you would like a review of the primer, let me know below!
I also used a color correcting face powder.
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”
Bee Beautiful. Bee You.
