MOTD: Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette 

I used the new Urban Decay Naked Heat eyeshadow palette for today’s look! I am so excited to create more looks using this gorgeous palette, especially since Fall is just around the corner!

Keep scrolling for pics of the look I created and for a full list of products I used.

EYES

  • Urban Decay Naked Heat palette (shades Sauced, Low Blow, He Devil, Scorched, Cayenne, En Fuego, and Ashes). I used as many shades as I could from the palette to add dimension to the eye look.
  • Ardell Demi Whispies
  • Catrice black pencil eyeliner

FACE

  • L’oreal True Match foundation (W5)
  • Nars Radiant Creamy concealer (custard)

  • Wet N Wild contour palette (dulce de leche)
  • Milani baked blush in Rose d’ Oro
  • Maybelline single shadow in The Glow Down (as a highlight)

BROWS

  • ABH Dipbrow pomade in medium brown

LIPS

  • Maybelline lipstick in Stormy Sahara (warm toned nude)

 

MOTD: Purple & Rose Gold + Bright Winged Liner 

I love pairing purple and rose gold together on the eyes and adding a pop of bright blue liner really brings this look to life! Keep scrolling to see more pics and a full list of products I used to create the full look.

EYES

  • Applied Colourpop’s Super Shock Shadow in the shade “Bill” as a transition shade.
  • Applied the light purple shade from the Carli Bybel x BH Cosmetics Deluxe Edition palette in the crease and then the darker purple shade from the palette in the outer corner to deepen the look.
  • I used a couple of purple shades from the Morphe 35B palette to add more dimension to the eyes, but just sticking with a medium and dark purple shadow will work.
  • I applied the Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in “LaLa” to the inner half of my eyes.
  • Used the Urban Decay eyeshadow in “Midnight Cowboy” to the inner corners of my eyes. I brought this shade down to the inner part of my lower lashline as well.
  • I used the same medium and deep purple shades from the Carli Bybel palette on the lower lashline as well.
  • I used the Wet N Wild liquid eyeliner in Voltage Blue and created a wing.
  • Applied a coat of the Maybelline Colossal volumizing mascara to my top and bottom lashline, then applied a pair of the Ardell Demi Whispies

FACE

  • For foundation I used the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation in the shade true beige. This was a shade too dark for me, so I mixed a little bit of my NYX white foundation mixer in with the foundation to create a perfect shade.
  • I used the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer and Maybelline Fit Me concealer under my eyes to brighten/ cover up any darkness.
  • I contoured/ bronzed using the cream contour shade from the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow palette and set this using the contour shade from the Wet N Wild contour/highlighting duo in Dulce De Leche.
  • For blush I used the L.A. Girl matte blush in “Just Natural”
  • Highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Gold

BROWS & LIPS

  • To fill in my brows I used the Skone Cosmetics brow pencil
  • My lippie is the Elf Matte Lip Color in shade Scarlet Night

 

Helpful Tips for Applying False Lashes

Here are some helpful tips for those of you who are beginners or just terrified when it comes to applying false lashes!

  • Curl and apply one thin coat of mascara to your actual lashes before applying falsies.
  • Place the lashes on your lash line without glue first to make sure they do not need to be trimmed. If they do need a trim, always trim from the OUTTER part of the lash.
  • You only need to apply a THIN LAYER of lash glue! A little goes a long way and won’t make a mess.
  • Once you have applied the glue, let it sit on the band of the lash for about 30 seconds to get tacky. This will help the lashes stick to your eyelid better and make it easier to adjust without getting glue everywhere.
  • Apply lashes with tweezers to the MIDDLE of the lash line first. A lot of people make the mistake of applying them at the ends first, but this makes a mess and it is easier to adjust and fit to the eye when placed at the middle.
  • When applying the lashes, look down into a compact mirror to get them as close to the lash line as possible and avoid the fake lashes getting caught up in your actual lashes.
  • After the lashes are applied, curl your original lashes together with the falsies to combine them. If needed you can apply another coat of mascara to further combine them.
  • Apply a think line of eyeliner to the band of the lashes to hide any glue or neaten up the eyeliner that was already there.

** My all time favorite lashes are the Ardell Demi Wispies from the drugstore!**

I hope these tips helped!
