Urban Decay is a great, trendsetting brand known for their bright, innovative eyeshadows. However, at $17 or more a pop, it can be quite expensive to buy their eyeshadows as singles. Luckily, they also put out a lot of limited edition value-priced makeup sets that make it much more affordable for you to collect their lovely colors. One such set is the Book of Shadows. This holiday season they have released their Book of Shadows Vol. 4 which offers 16 shades (10 of which are new and exclusive to this palette) for $64.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
