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

Eyeshadow:

   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.

 

Close Up 1

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

Eyes

Lid- I applied L.A. Splash Cosmetics SplashProof Sealer Base on top of the existing Gunmetal Shadow before patting on L.A. Splash Cosmetics Body/Face Glitter in Rock Star.  The sealer gives the glitter something to grip on to but is optional.    

Eyeliner- Line bottom lashes with Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet and trace over it with Gunmetal. 

Mascara- Add another coat of mascara Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant 

Lips

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Palomino

Night Look 2You can customize this look to your preference.  Skip the glitter if you feel it’s too much or stick to a lighter lip color. 

Hope you enjoyed this look and thanks for reading,
