Urban Decay Sparkly Eyes & Red Lips

Wednesday, 29 December 2010

I thought I'd try a look from the previous Festive Haul & (old) findings post. I used the three UD sparkly eyeshadows - Midnight Cowboy, Goddess & Retrograde. I used the sample size lipstick in Gash too, here's some pics of what it looked like out of the box.. it's sooo cute!!

Now I'm a fairly small person, with tiny hands, so you can imagine how small this sample is if it sits in my hand like that! The lipstick smells sweet when applied also.. love it!

Here's a full list of what's used:

> UD eyeshadows - Midnight Cowboy, Goddess & Retrograde Stardust

> UD 24/7 eyeliners - Zero & Yeyo
> MAC select moisturecover concealer in NC35
> Dior Show black mascara
> Sleek blush in Pomegranate
> UD lip liner & lipstick in Gash

To start, I used Midnight Cowboy on the inner corners of the eyes, blending out to the brow bone in a crescent shape. I then used Retrograde on the inner corner of the eyelids, patting it along the eyelid, stopping just before the outer corner, which was filled with Goddess. Goddess was blended into the crease and upwards into the Midnight Cowboy, blending a lot and creating a winged shape. To blend the dark Goddess colour out, I used more Midnight Cowboy on the brow bone accordingly, blending down. A cotton wool bud was used to clean the line from the outer corner of the eyelid to the outer eyebrow.
As the purple & navy are really dark on the top eyelid, I decided to break it up with silvery white eyeliner (Yeyo) on the bottom lashline, following the clean eyeshadow line from the eye corner to the eyebrow corner, but underneath. Zero eyeliner was used for topliner and inner waterlines for top and bottom lashlines.
Finally, concealer was used under the eye followed by Dior Show mascara to finish off the eyes.

For the cheeks I used the new Sleek Pomegranate (purpley) blusher, and for the lips I used Gash lipliner over the lips followed by Gash lipstick on top.


It's a shame the sparkliness of the glitter doesn't show up much in these pictures, cameras do glitter no justice!
I think this look is a bit too dark/gothic for me, but thought I'd do a look with the products I've acquired recently.. hope you like!
