Blown-Out Copper Eyes

This one was something that really made me feel the Heat of the summer. Using the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, I created a blown-out, slightly smoky copper eye to go with my acid wash tee that I got from boohoo.

This was super easy to achieve and can really just be mastered with a lot of blending. I’m always drawn to a super shimmery lid with mattes to blend it all out. I feel like I could have even went a little darker in the crease and on the outer corner to really give this a sexy feel but… for another time. 😉

First I took Chaser and put it all over the lid to set a base shadow for the others to blend onto. Once I finished that I took Sauced and Low Blow and used them as a slightly darker version of a transition shade to get the eye look going. Sauced is like a warm cream shade and Low Blow is actually a bit cool-toned, compared to the other shades in the palette. After that I took Cayenne and started to build up the color in the crease. This is where the blending begins.

Once that was finished, I played Dirty Talk all over the lid and started to blend the harsh line between that and my crease. I slowly started working in En Fuego to help darken the crease and outer corner while doing this, as well. After I got all the colors down, just kept blending in the crease and around the corners to make the final blown-out look.

If you haven’t checked out my review and swatches of the UD Naked Heat palette, you should! I really think this was an excellent addition to the Naked series and I am proud to say I am still on the streak of owning every single one.

Mermaid Vibes Makeup

After having this blog for so long, I finally have decided to upload a makeup look. It’s not really a step-by-step tutorial because I’m not walking you through each step with photos but I am going to tell you how I got this look using The Magic by Juvia’s palette. It’s a super gorgeous and pigmented palette, that I will have a review and swatches up for veryyy soon. The following look was inspired by the purple and blue shades in this palette. There’s only a few but I really wanted to dig into the shade Faso as it is a duo chrome purple-blue color.

So this wasn’t too hard but it took a lot of blending and just building up the color rather than packing on a ton of pigment at the beginning. You can always blend away if needed, as I did at the end, but sometimes it’s hard to blend away the excess on dark colors.

First, I took Kesi and put it all over the lid as a base after my primer. I then took a tiny bit of Nana and used it as a bit darker version of a transition shade. Next, I put Ife on the inner and outer corners of my lid. I blended this until it was seamless all around. After it was blended, I placed Faso on the middle of the lid and blended the shade with the inner and outer corners. I wasn’t happy with the effect just yet so I sprayed my brush with a setting spray then packed some more color on the middle and continued to blend. Once that was finished, I used Yejide to blend out the crease and the outer corner. This was the majority of the blending and took the longest. Just keep blending this out until it looks as smoky and blown out as you’d like. In the end, just fade the edges of the blend with Kesi again to make it not as harsh against the browbone. In the end, I put some of Faso in the inner part of the lower lashline and then Ife on the outer part of the lower lastline.

On the face I had Too Faced Hangover primer, Hourglass Vanish Seamless Stick foundation in Porcelain, Tarte Shape Tape concealer in Fair Neutral and Light Neutral, Laura Mercier Transluscent setting powder, Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Transparent, ColourPop Super Shock Cheek in Fox, Tarte Double Duty Beauty “Don’t Be Afraid to Dazzle” contour and highlight palette, Sleek Makeup Solstice highlighting palette, Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting contour powder in Light, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, and ColourPop brow pencil in Redhead.
