Be a “Daring Darling” or Be a “Sweetheart” for Valentines using Urban Decay Naked3 by Steph and Jen!


Main Valentine

Hi guys!  I don’t usually posts on Mondays but today’s post is special.  I collaborated with the lovely and funny Jen from The Avon Insider to come up with a Valentine’s Day look using the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.  My look is a more dramatic, nighttime look, hence the Daring Darling name, and if you head on to Jen’s blog, you’ll find the Sweetheart Valentine’s Day look along with some great blog posts.

Let’s get to it!

Get the Look

Foundation: Lancome Teint Miracle in Buff 4C

Concealer: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla


   Highlight: Strange

   Crease: Factory/Mugshot

   Mid/Outer Lid: Blackheart/Mugshot

   Inner Corner of Lid: Dust

Close Up 2

 Directions: Apply Factory on the crease and Blackheart on the mid and outer lids.  Then apply Mugshot over Blackheart and blend it up to the crease.  Use Strange as the highlight shade beneath the brows and just above the crease color.  Pat on Dust on the inner corner of the lid to brighten up the look.  After you line your eyes (see eyeliner category below), use a pencil brush to trace Mugshot on the outer 2/3 of your bottom waterline and extend it into a slight cat-eye shape. Wipe off the pencil brush and apply Dust on the inner corner of the bottom waterline.

Eyeliner: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Caviar Ink on the top lashline and Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet on the waterline (bottom lashline)

Mascara: Milani Total Lash Cover Mascara with 3 Zone Brush in Black

Bronzer/Blush: I applied Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder on my cheeks and then swirled Burberry Light Glow Earthy Blush No. 7 right on top of the bronzer.

Lips: Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Red Amour

Purple Evening Look!

A simple and pretty makeup look that enhances your eye color and is perfect for a night out!


Foundation: Use your favorite foundation, tinted moisturizer or powder. (Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation in 2)

Bronzer: I chose a  matte bronzer but shimmer can work too  (Too Faced Chocolate Soleil)

Blush:  Soft pink color  (Nars Blush in Douceur)


Highlight: A light beige color on the lid

Contour: A medium brown on the crease

*I used a neutral palette for the highlight and contour colors so I don’t have specific shade names*

Inner Corner Lid: A shimmery silver color (NYX Eyeshadow in Snow Candy)

Lid:  A purple color on the lid  (Lancome Color Design Eyeshadow in Drama)

Liner:  I used black eyeliner to line both the lashline and waterline (Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner in Black (top) and Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet (bottom)).  Then, I used a small angled brush to smudge the same purple eyeshadow  I used on the lids (Drama) to the bottom lashline.

Mascara: Black mascara (Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant)


A  berry shade (Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint in Moody)

You can make this look a bit more dramatic by adding false eyelashes and rocking a red lip or tone it down by using a nude lip color.  

Happy Tuesday!
