I am loving winged eyeliner right now and especially colorful winged eyeliner so here is a fun look I did using Teal colored liquid eyeliner and gold eyeshadow. This is a very simple look that you can do in just a few minutes once you have mastered the winged eyeliner. If you have not yet mastered winged eyeliner, fear not, just keep practicing, and you will get there.
You can do this look with any color eyeliner, even black if you don’t feel like rocking the bright colors. I think pink, blue, green, or purple would all look great with the golds though. You can also use any type of eyeliner you are comfortable with: gels, liquids, pencils, or even plain eyeshadow applied with a wet brush. It’s really up to you. I like using liquids for winged eyeliner because they create a really crisp line, but if you suck with liquids or don’t have any, you can totally make do with whatever you’ve got. Most of the eyeshadows I used are from the Urban Decay Naked Palette
Tarte has really outdone themselves with The Starlet Limited-Edition Makeup Vanity, sold exclusively at Sephora. I really LOVE this set.
This set is priced at $52, and is a really incredible value. It includes:
- 24 eyeshadows
- 2 brand new shades of Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush
- Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Rose
- Mineral powder bronzer in Park Avenue Princess
- Deluxe samples of Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara and multiplEYE primer
Stila Cosmetics has revealed their 2011 holiday collection lineup. While there are several items in this collection, the pièce de résistance is their Dream in Full Color Palette. It retails for $39 and features:
- 29 Eyeshadows
- 7 Blushes
- Stila Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliner ($20 value)
- Lookbook with instructions on creating 12 looks
This palette, with its swirling floral shaped pans, is designed to give you larger quantities of lighter “highlight” colors and smaller amounts of the darker “defining and crease” colors. The packaging is super cute, and makes for a really nice gift this holiday season.
Metallic shades are an incoming trend for this fall. The metallic brown & gold look I created here is easy to do and looks great with tons of neutral outfits. Most of the colors from this look come from the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection, available at Sephora and reviewed by yours truly here.
Urban Decay is celebrating 15 years in business with a palette that includes 15 all-new eyeshadow shades. The Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection is a limited edition palette and can be found at Sephora.
