I’ve had so many requests for makeup tutorials using this amazing palette, but I wanted to wait a little bit to make sure everyone had a chance to get it first to avoid pissing someone off. Yet again makeup addicts around the world wipes out the shelves at Urban Decay and the palette is gone for months. If you haven’t already, make sure you score one here as I’m sure it won’t be in for long.
1. Start by applying a primer to your eye lid, this will prevent your eyeshadow from creasing. I like to use Urban Decay Primer Potion. Once the primer is set I washed on a layer of Foxy which will make it easier to blend the colours later on.
2. I then used a blending brush to blend Tease into the crease (wow, that rhymed, I wonder if they did that on purpose). When blending, it’s better to add shadow little by little and wipe the brush back and forth until your arm hurts. If you make a mistake and bring it up too high the best solution is to go over with Foxy again to dilute the colour. What ever you do, don’t use makeup remover as this will make a horrible line which is impossible to correct later on.
3. Using a flat brush I added Snakebite to the outer half of the eye lid. Because the shadow is farely shimmery I find I get the best result with pressing the eyeshaow on rather than using wiping motion. This prevents fall outs as well.
4. Using the other side of the same brush I added Half Baked to the inner half of the lid. I used the same pressing method here as well. To get a nice transition between the two shadows, you can wipe the brush carefully back and forth just there.
5. To open up the eyes I like to use a light colour in the inner corner. For this look I chose to mix Verve with Bootycall as I think the two together makes a pretty neutral highlight colour. I used a small rounded tapered brush for this.
6. On the inner half of the lower lid I continued with the same colour as I used in the inner half of the upper lid, Half Baked. I applied it using the same pressing method as mentioned above with the same brush as before.
7. Using Snakebite I connected the colour in the outer corner dragging if slightly further to elongate the eye. I also cleaned up fall outs and blended out the edges once more with Foxy using a big fluffy brush, this makes the over all look softer.
8. Lastly I lined my upper lashline with a liquid eyeliner and finished off with mascara on both upper and lower lashes.
I hope you liked the tutorial, I will be posting more soon ;) LOVE this palette more and more the more I use it!!! Incredibly versatile <3
