Urban Decay Delux Shadow Box

I LOVE this pallet! All of the colors are easy to use and the best part is none of the shadows have chunky glitter in them. I hate those shadows that Urban Decay makes with the chunky glitter, I spend days getting it off of my face. And I spend the day looking like a disco ball. But here is the pallet. My fave color in the pallet is underground but many others come in a close second. Here is a look today I made with Fishnet on the lid, Ransom over it, Zero in the outer corner and Scratch in the crease. I also lined with Urban Decay's Rockstar liner on the top and on the waterline. I used mascara on the top and bottom lashes as well, Clinique High Impact mascara.

I find the best way to apply Urban Decay shadows for me is with my finger. They blend out much easier that way then using a brush. And I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly for a primer. Love that primer.

Ahhhh the holidays

How they always take us away from routine and make our lives crazy! That and the worst January in a long time was bestowed upon my husband and I. But we toasted to the end of January on the 31st and we are pretending that 2010 started on Feb 1st. So things are looking up. Anyway, this blog has been neglected, but trust me ladies I have purchased lots of makeup and have lots to talk about. Here is a quick look I made with the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II:

I used Misdemeanor on the lid, Sell Out in the crease and Mushroom in the outer corner of the lid. I also lined with Urban Decays Gunmetal 24/7 liner on the top and bottom. On the bottom I put Misdemeanor over it for a smokey look. It was very different then what I usually wear but I liked it.

Oh and ladies I got a new do! My hair was about 5 inches longer then thing, hung on my head like it was limp and well I hated it. Now I love my hair! Check it out:



Well I have lots to talk about but I will save it for future posts. Ta-ta for now!
