Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 3 Look:  Gold, Plum, Green

I told you I’d have a look for you soon! :)  I did film a tutorial for this look, and I’m hoping to have that up on Friday-ish.   Hope everyone’s having a fantastic Thursday!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Primer Potion as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Maui Wowie eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Rockstar eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Loaded eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid.  Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Rockstar eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply #15 blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116, then lightly pat Beige Lumineux meteorites on the cheekbones, forehead, bridge of nose, and chin.

For lips, apply Naked lipstick first, and then layer Midnight Cowboy lip junkie for a complementing lip.

  1. Chelbi

    Reminds me of MARDI GRAS :)

  2. M

    Wow! You look gorgeous! I didn’t think that eggplant, gold and dark green would work, but it did! :)

  3. Monica

    This look is amazing! This is a look I would totally wear. It looks really good on you!

  4. Catherine

    this is such a sexy/sultry look! you always know what colors to put together! I have a question… What got you started on and the beauty world. I’ve always been curious :)

    • Thanks a lot, Catherine! :)

      I wanted a place to keep all my looks in one easy to access/track/view place, so the blog was created! Then it just snowballed from there :) You can check the About Us tab on the top or the link at the bottom (in the footer) for a little more info!

  5. Wendy

    This is so pretty against your eyes!

  6. Stacey M

    Loooove this!!

  7. Very beautiful look! Why don’t we have UD over here! We need to make all these brands realize that Belgium does have a market for all those puuurrrrdy stuffies ^^

  8. baby in a corner

    Wow! I love it. I actually wouldn’t have thought to put these colours together but they work fab! this is a cool rock chick look IMO!

    • Thank you, Etaoin!! 😀

      • Etaoin

        Ah you are so sweet to remember my name! Thank you! I’m going to use it now instead of the moniker (is that the right word, I only heard it for the first time recently!)

        My only complaint is … that you are teasing us all by getting to play with the palette when we have to wait another month! LOL 😉

  9. Solangel

    Ok this look is gorgeous :O The lipstick really complements it well!

  10. Liron

    WOW!!!! Amazing!

  11. this is one of my favorite looks that you’ve done! you should do a video on it!

  12. Beautiful look! This will be perfect for fall. :)

  13. OMG I LOVE this<3 It looks great on you=)

  14. Cheyenne

    I must re-create this look!! Now to get my hands on that darn Book of Shadows haha

  15. Christina

    Love the colors! Man, now I want the bos3, but I am not a fan of glittery eyeshadows :/

    Btw plushlash isn’t doing much for your lashes in this look ;/

    • Hmm, Plushlash looked fantastic to me, lol! What’s wrong with it?

      • Christina

        Ooh it’s just only in this look. Nothings wrong with it overall (plushlash looks good in your other looks). I just think that the mascara looks too “natural” for such a daring/fierce eye (fierce in a sultry way!). So I feel like the mascara doesn’t do much for your lashes in this particular look.

        Aughhhh now I want this palette, but more just to admire the colors! I wish Loaded wasn’t exclusive to the palette!

  16. This look alone makes me want to buy this palette.

  17. kat

    Wow I love this look. I may have to try this one

  18. Michou

    This is quite possibly my fave look so far! Can’t wait to get my hands on it and try it for myself!!!

  19. This is hands down, one of my favorite looks you’ve ever EVER done. I like the amalgam of the smoky colors w/blue greenish undertones mixed with the red/maroon color and gold. So pretty!

  20. I would not have given that a second look but wow you make it look so beautiful.

  21. ARISTA


  22. Melissa


  23. Lex

    This looks amazing on you :). I may have to try this palette!

  24. Sally

    Ohhh, this is so gorgeous! This type of look is probably my favorite – eggplant and gold shadows, and smoky!

  25. Lulee

    this looks super cool!

  26. Kristy

    Wow! That looks amazing! :)

  27. bxboricua

    You read my mind Christine! just the colors that I had been eyeing – Rockstar & Loaded! Great look :)

  28. meghan

    Amazing! Idk if I can pull this off in public, I’ll have to wear it around the house for a while to build up my confidence :) haha

  29. sofia

    ohhhh one of the best looks i’ve ever seen!!!

  30. nekosan

    Oh, that’s gorgeous! I’m gonna have to dig through what I’ve got and try something similar.

  31. This is a beautiful look on you, although it doesn’t seem like the green or plum is coming through. It looks more like black and gold. Again, still awesome.

  32. Ada

    Love the e/s combination! The whole look is very pretty!

  33. Marina

    Amazing look!
    Alas, we don’t have UD in my country :(

  34. Danielle


  35. Kristel

    I really love this look! I’m definitly gonna try it when I get my BOS III

  36. Ally_D

    Wow, I really like it. Thanks for getting a look up so quickly 😀

  37. LOVE the look 😀 Can’t wait for BOS III! And that’s a great lip for it too. When I saw the words “Midnight Cowboy Lip Junkie” I thought it would be huge glitter city but it looks nice.

    PS Now I don’t even want Naked palette! BOS 4 ME 😀

  38. I really like this look! I think I’m convinced that I “need” this palette. =)

  39. By far, this is my favorite look you have ever done! I just love it!!! :)

  40. Lena

    Pretty! I definitely am scooping up the palette when it comes out.

  41. Whoa! This is gorgeous! :)

  42. allison

    Very pretty Christine! I love the crease color and how you did the V and lower lashline! Just gorgeous. 😀

  43. Daniela

    WOW you look absolutely gorgeous, I love this look…ahh I was trying to resist buying the UD BoS III but you are making it sooo hard!!!

  44. Daphnee

    Love it! I only like Rockstar, Loaded, Bordello and the goldish color in the second to last row. Liking four colors is not enough for me to buy the palette :(

  45. Jen

    wow. this look is hot. probably my favorite one i’ve seen from you actually. very nice.

  46. Julia

    This is really nice. I’m jealous I can’t do it yet! haha

  47. Em

    I love this look, Christine! The color combo sort of reminds me of Le Metier de Beaute’s Devotion palette (gold, dark plum, navy, and then a bronzey orange to really throw me off.) I haven’t been able to get the LMDB palette to work all that well on me yet, but this post is inspiring me to try again to see if I can use it to duplicate your look. Thanks!

  48. Elena

    I could totally see this as a new years look! Once again you’ve blown me away

  49. CeeBee

    Holy WOW! That is STUNNING!

  78. I love this look on you! Rockstar is lovely!

  79. Vanessa

    Hi! I have been watching some of your tutorials in youtube… I would really really REALLY like it if you would talk to the camera showing your entire face! that would be so awesome!

    Can you think of any MAC dupes to recreate this look???

  85. Eva

    WHen I saw the pics of the UD Book of Shadows Vol III I was sure I could skip it – and then you go and post this sultry look. *sigh*
    Now I am lemming..

  86. Sea

    I started following your blog not too long ago.
    I love it!!!! I wish I knew sooner!!!!!
    I can’t wait for the palette to come out, but I know I won’t be able to that pretty eye make-up like you did!
    Looks great on you.:)

  87. Chloe

    This is gorgeous…reminds me of your Memento Mori look, only with plum instead of teal. I will be using this as my “back to school” look!

  88. Tiffany

    really pretty… like it a lot!

  89. Kalee

    goooooorrrrgeous!!!! one of my faaaav looks youve done. now i have to get it when it comes out.

  90. Alia

    I do have thick eyebrow like yours. I’ve never think to do makeup with high dark crease, coze It does not look good on me

    After I’ve seen yours I’ll try to do the same look on one day, it looks good on you


  91. Brenda

    Very nice! I feel like I’d like to see the black brought up a teensy bit higher above your crease, maybe a rounder outer “v”..I think you could totally rock it :) (just as a variation, not that I don’t Love this!) xo

  92. Natasha S.

    This is a really beautiful look…you look so pretty with nude/pinkish lips! =)

    Do you know when the B.O.S 3 will be out in Canada?

  93. jessenia

    Looks Great!!! i cant wait to get the urban decay BOS3, when will u have the tutorial up?

  94. Cami

    Tried this look today- only had Maui Wowie, so for the plum I blended MAC Fake and Satin Taupe shadows, and for the dark green I used Urban Decay Mildew from the Ammo Shadow Box. For liner, I used clinique quick eyes in Double Coffee.

    Now I feel oh so pretty :)

  95. Sara

    I adore this look. It’s lovely. <3
    Do you have a video tutorial of this as well? Or am I just dumb and can't find it. lol

  96. Annie

    You look GORGEOUS!!!!
