To solve this problem, makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes showed me how to create three totally different and doable makeup looks that go beyond the typical smoky eye and help you think outside the beauty box. No crazy-hard YouTube tutorials required. This look is for the girl who loves a statement lipstick , but still wants to show off her lids. Step two: Blend away any edges with a fluffy brush. Step three: Line the upper water line with a black waterproof eye pencil. Step five: Start the bold lip by making some small markings around the lips to create a guide with a lip color crayon.
Whether you're a makeup beginner or a beauty pro, Urban Decay has a Naked Eyeshadow Palette for everyone. These curated mixes of satin, matte, metallic, and shimmer shadows feature neutral shades for soft, medium, and bold eye looks. We recommend using Eyeshadow Primer Potion before eyeshadow to ensure an even, smooth application and color that lasts all day. Use a brush with your eyeshadow and always blend, blend, blend—choose from our UD Pro Eyeshadow Brushes to get the best application and looks. A fluffy brush, like our Iconic Eyeshadow Brush , is great for laying down all-over color on the lid, while a more tapered brush lets you spotlight areas and focus on more precise definition. To get started with our eyeshadow palettes, we recommend any of our Naked Eyeshadow Palettes, particularly the bestselling Naked3 Palette and the universally flattering Naked Reloaded. Plus, the pan Naked Palettes are super versatile due to their color range.
As a bonus, all five looks can be achieved using just two eye brushes. To keep things extra simple, the application technique in all of the looks is the same. Use a pinched fluffy brush like this one to apply the main lid color, use a fluffy blending brush like this one to apply color to the crease and if needed, use the darkest shade again with the pinched fluffy brush. Pinch that same brush to smudge any color on the lower lash line. The cool-tone look Shades used: Sin on the lid, Gunmetal in the crease and lower lash line, Creep in the outer corner.
