Beauty Face of the Day

fotd: olive vices

December 28, 2015




My bathroom was a bit of a disaster zone this morning, so instead of adding to the chaos I thought I’d do my whole eye look from just one palette to keep things simple.

Since I was in the mood for muddy colours, I pulled out my trusty Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. It’s undoubtedly the dullest of all the Vice palettes, and though none of that sounds like a good thing I mean it in the nicest way possible. As in, such wearable colours! No overly-edgy brights that I’ll tell myself I’ll use but never really do!

This look started with Habit (matte nude) all over, and then Stash (metallic olive) packed heavily onto my mobile lid with a damp brush. I blended it out through the crease with Rewind (matte camel), and darkened the inner and outer edges of my eyelid with Poison (sparkly black). Using my finger, I dabbed a spot of Strike (metallic gold) onto the very center of my lids, and then smudged more Poison underneath my lower lashline.

      I wear Y225 Marble in the new Ultra HD formula, which used to be 117 in the old HD line.

      Oops – my bad! I’ve updated the blog post with all the makeup details.

      I love a good olive eyeshadow too, and can’t seem to stop buying them. I’m always looking for “the one”!
