Last week I went to a beauty event held by Urban Decay in Perch! It was a great night and I learnt so much from the staff and the makeup artist, Stevey Lennox! It was great to be able to have a little play around with the makeup and watch Stevey use it too! This is the look I created for the event and my outfit too!!
For this look I started with my brows, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown to fill them in, I then went in with Soap and Glory Brow Archery in Hot Chocolate to help add a little shape and texture. I used my NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer to carve out the brows for a really defined shape. Once I had finished all my makeup I set my brows using L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper in Medium/Dark.
Honestly I had no idea what makeup I wanted to do for this look, I wan intending upon doing something very soft but I felt it would be too similar to the makeup I wore to the Kiss Summer Party! While I was trying to decide what I wanted I used Limit and Nooner from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette to begin defining the crease.
I then decided I wanted a warmer brown tone so went back to my trusty Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, which I literally use all the time! I went into the shade Raw Sienna to try and warm up the crease, mixing in some Burnt Orange as well. I then took Cyprus Umber on a fluffy brush and used this shade to help darken the crease, making sure to go over any harsh edges with a clean fluffy brush! To add extra warmth to the crease I used the shade Realgar on a smaller fluffy brush and focused this towards the edges of the Cyprus Umber shade.
I decided to do a cut crease for this look so I took my NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer and carved out along the crease, I set the concealer with Tempera from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. I didn’t want the lid to have too much colour or any sparkle, I really love how it looks sort of edgy being so matte.
For the liner I used Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper, this is seriously the best liner ever! It helps you to create a sharp wing with minimal effort (for liner anyways). I used my Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Pencil in Black to line my top and bottom water line.
At this stage I moved onto the skin!

For the lower lash line I took Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette, I pulled these shades quite low under the eye for a more blown out look. I then went in with Burnt Umber from the same palette but I kept this quite close to the lash line. I then applied lots of MAC Extended Play Gigablack Mascara to top and bottom lashes before going in with lashes. The lashes I used were the Eylure 159’s.
To spice this look up a little I added some glitter, I used Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Distortion and then went over this with Gold glitter from NYX. I like how this is subtle but still really fun, I used the glitter under my liner and on the inner corner!
For the lips I used Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Liner in Pillow Talk, Dolce K by Kylie Cosmetics and then topped this off with MAC Velvet Teddy!
The weather was awful, so I opted for a casual bun so my hair wouldn’t become a fuzzy mess on the walk from my car to the bar!
