I’ve been trying every Holiday 2011 Limited Edition palette that I can get my hands on, and one of my favorites so far is the Too Faced Sweet Dreams Makeup Collection.
A steal at $52 ($186 value), this collection comes with 15 gorgeous eyeshadow shades, 2 blushes, a bronzer, a highlighter, and a full sized tube of Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer. This collection is a Sephora exclusive and may be hard to find at your local Sephora store because it is selling out quickly, so if you want it for a Christmas gift, be sure to order it online soon so it ships in time for the holidays.
Sorry for the low quality pictures but I really loved this look and want to post it anyway.
I created this look exclusively using eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume III eyeshadow palette. It is super bright and fun….sure to get you tons of compliments.
Urban Decay is well known for it’s bright, bold, shimmery eyeshadows, and their 15th Anniversary Palette (reviewed here) has plenty of bright colors to work with. I created this fun, bright eye makeup look using just 2 eyeshadow brushes and 4 shades from Urban Decay’s 15th Anniversary Palette ($55 with free shipping at Sephora.com), plus some Stila Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliner.
I went shopping at Ten Thousand Villages recently and found a lovely handmade Peruvian necklace. If you are unfamiliar with this store, they are a nonprofit fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted goods from around the world. The necklace I purchased has very intricate design with hand-made wiring and lime/sage green colored stones (see photos below).
I wanted to do a look that highlights the lovely greens in the necklace, so here you have it.
Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows Volume 3 is an ode to New York, inspired by its culture, landmarks, and vibrant night life. It features 16 shades but only 7 are exclusive to this collection.
I’ve always loved bright eyeshadow but for those who are a bit more reserved with their eyecolor, now is a great time to venture out and try some bright colors. Bright eyeshadow is very trendy this summer, and you can get some really fun bright colors by picking up palettes like Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows Vol. 3. Or, if you are on a budget, Loreal’s HIP line can be found at any drugstore and has a wide array of bright eyeshadows.
