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.

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
