My make-up weakness? Eyeshadow. Especially glimmery, shimmery eye shadow. I have hazel eyes as you will see in the pictures below, but sometimes it looks green. I don’t really like matte eyeshadows because it really doesn’t spice up my look or make my eyes pop.
This eyeshadow is a shimmery purple. It can be used for any eye color, but it looks especially beautiful on Hazel, Green, and Brown eyes.
In this 1st picture, I primed my eye with the Urban Decay Primer Potion in “Sin”, and used a peachy gold color from MAC. I don’t remember the exact shade, but it’s a color than you can find anywhere! A great dupe for this color is from Sonia Kashuk’s eyeshadow duo in True Love.
Next, I used the Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Psychedelic Sister for the crease. I used a basic short smudge brush to apply this purple eyeshadow then blended the two colors together with a small multipurpose brush from Sonia Kashuk. On the bottom lash line I used Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Ransom, and I used the 24/7 Eye Pencil also from Urban Decay in Bourbon.
Now that’s the look! How about the actual eyeshadow? Well, it’s no secret that Urban Decay’s eyeshadows are super popular. Especially with all the talk of Naked & Naked 2! But, I think that this shade is one of it’s most underrated eyeshadows. First of all, the packaging is super gorgeous! It reminds me a little of what a genie would keep in her makeup bag. Now the eyeshadow. It’s really pigmented and it stays on all day long! The great thing about this eyeshadow is that the shimmer is subtle. And, when you pack on the eyeshadow you can pack as little or as much eyeshadow as you want depending on what kind of look you’re going for!
