Playing with Urban Decay

By  |  50 Comments

I filmed a tutorial on this look last night because I was super bored and wanted an excuse to play with my Urban Decay palettes I never touch (Book of Shadows Vol I and the Deluxe Shadows one) I just ordered the Alice in Wonderland Palette and wanted to make sure I didn’t have many of the dupes (are they even dupes, or just.. renamed shades? yeah, renamed shades.) when I realized “I am buying a new UD palette and never use the old ones!” so I decided to change that.

    OH Wow. You look beautiful. You look like less like a young adult and more like a beautiful early 20 something woman. Haha, I know what sounds weird, but I’ve watched since your first vid, and It’s amazing how much you have changed. Can’t think of any way to say it, but I hope you know what I mean. Lol.

    love the blue look, i have blue eyes very similar too yours and i think im definatley going to try this out. By the way I loved your reviews on hair products, I was watching the other night, and i was thinking to myself, its very hard to find the products that match your perticula hair type. Well i have thick unmanagble hair, coarse and naturally curly/wavy. Im currently blonde, and i just bought the Dumb Blonde shampoo/conditioner… I was wondering if you have any other sugestions on shampoos and conditioner, Im look for some more really great deep conditioners, my hair is soo dry from the bleach from the new blonde, and suggestions? I would really appreciate it. Thanks > Katie, NJ

    Has anyone ever told you that you look absolutely gorgeous when your bangs aren’t in your face? Don’t get me wrong, your gorgeous all the time…. but dang girl… with your bang out of your face….. just wow.

    oh and i love love love this look. It reminds me a little bit of like a Sea Nymph or a Sea Kelpie inspired type look! OH I KNOW!!! Your next series of make up looks you do, you should totally base them off of mythical/fantasy creatures. Examples: Banshee- pale blues, greens, greys maybe a splash of black with some “flow”y designs around the eyes or something…. Centaur- Golds, browns, reds with maybe super long false lashes….. Dragons- maybe use that fishnet trick for texture to make it look like scales and maybe make the colors fade into each other…. Elf- think earthy greens, lots of shimmer maybe… ooooo Maybe you could somehow pull a look out of nowhere inspired by Ghosts….Yeti- (abominable snow man) whites, white with colored undertones, like a blue undertone would be really cool, all sort of flowing together like a blizzard. last but not least, something Zombie inspired would be really cool (black, maybe a hint of something shimmery and dark..??)

    Sorry, got on the topic and sorta couldn’t stop. lol. Just though i’d throw all that out there and see if something inspires you. I hope so! Cuz your the best at what you do and in your hands these creature looks would be amazing!

    This look is amazing on you! but something very important you look sooooo much better without your bangs, you dont look bad with bangs but without them, you are sooo much better please consider not wearing them any more :) xoxo
    ps love the colors

    I love this look, you look really gorgeous. The lashes def pair well with everything! :D
    I’ve been debating on getting the Alice Palette since I probably have all the shades, since they’re are just renamed, lol but its still quite tempting…

    this is the best you’ve ever looked. LOVE seeing you without bangs. It really opens up your face and makes everything about you glow. The hair color change is awesome. its the perfect color for you…and as for the makeup…its INCREDIBLE! i fear bright colors on my face (cuz i feel it makes me look funny, maybe it doesnt. who knows..) but this look makes me want to be bold and daring and i think im definitely gonna try it out. cant wait for the vid!
