When it comes to special occasion makeup, I tend to rely on a smokey eye as evidenced by my Jump Back Ball looks (here and here). So when the latest Makeup Wars challenge called for a Holiday Eye look, I decided to buck tradition by opting for soft and shimmery, featuring the new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, offset by a bold lip. Check it out!
Get The Look
To create this soft shimmery eye and bold lip, I used Urban Decay Naked 3 ($52, Sephora.com), Urban Decay Naked 2 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil ($16, UrbanDecay.com), COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara ($11.99, Walgreens.com), MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick ($16.50) and Pro Longwear Lip Pencil ($21.50).
The specific shades I used from Naked 3 are: Dust, Limit, Burnout, Trick and Liar.
I started with a base of Urban Decay Primer Potion and swept Limit over the entire eye as a neutral, matte background to work off of. Having Limit as a backdrop helped the shimmery shades show up without needing a ton of product layered on the eye.
I then applied Burnout to the inner half of my lid, Trick to the outer half with Liar in the crease. I blended them all together using Dust to give it an overall ethereal shimmer. I used Dust on my lower lash line as well, after a applying Perversion liner to my waterline and upper lash line.
A couple coats of COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara and my look is complete.
Finally, to complete the overall holiday party look, I added a cool, matte red lip using MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick over RiRi Woo Pro Longwear Lip Pencil.
