Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette Look #2

We had our celebratory dinner on Saturday, and I had to wear Chanel Dragon–my go-to for special occasions–and decided to pair it with the neutral shades from the Rollergirl palette, due out in late April.  I really cannot express how absolutely in love I am with Le Metier de Beaute Echo… ah, it is just glowy goodness to the fullest extent.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Greed as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply Verve eyeshadow to the lower lid with the 239.  Next, apply Suspect eyeshadow above the crease and into the outer corner with the 222.  Use Trench eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone and diffuse the crease color with the 217.  Apply Whiskey liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Echo blush on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with the 116.  Lightly apply Amber Diamond on the highest planes of the cheeks with the 165.

For lips, apply Dragon for a complementing lip.

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Using the 222, apply the muted medium brown eyeshadow into the crease and blend upwards.  Then, apply the blackened taupe brown eyeshadow with the 219 directly into the crease, and blend using the 222 to give it a gradient effect.  Apply the shimmering taupe eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid with the 239.  Using the 239, apply the pale beige eyeshadow to the inner half of the lid, and then highlight the brow bone with the same shade.  Bring everything together by applying Perversion liner on the lower lash line and blending the pale beige eyeshadow underneath.
