We love the jewel tones
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Palette
We took a sneak peek earlier in the week at the shades inside this palette and you can catch up on our initial impressions here.
And today we couldn't resist putting our first UD x GS tutorial together!
Before and after
We couldn't resist clicking this palette right open and putting together a really quick tutorial for you.
Monochrome, sleek packaging
The packaging is giving us serious ‘Sweet Escape’ style vibes.
The palette is packed with 15 shades
nd 12 of these are new.
Statement Stefani Eye
So shall we kick off our step by step guide to this evening look?
Prep for the statement eye
We're starting with all the ground work done.
Foundation, concealer, powder etc are all in place.
I've gone easy on the lips as I want to keep the focus on our statement eye.
First step, primer
Apply eye primer under the brow.
Blend down to the crease.
Time for Anaheim
Apply Anaheim in the crease.
Blend out with fluffy blending brush.
Grab your slanted brush
With Punk shadow and a slanted brush, draw under the lower lash line and top lash line.
Bring it out to a wing, and then back in to half way accross the crease.
Blend out the Punk with a fluffy brush above and below the eye.
Apply Blonde in the tear duct and under the brow bone, and blend with a clean brush.
Add some lashes for added oomph.
Pop some white liner on the inner water line to fake wide-awake eyes.
And here's our before and after
Lots of definition and depth in our evening look.
And there are so many options, especially given the jewel toned options.
Are you tempted to give this palette a go?
This is one of our favourite palettes of the year.
It's a great mix of neutrals and colour, perfect for easy day or vamped up night. Add a red lip and people might mistake you for the lady herself.
Will you be giving it a whirl this Christmas?
