Burnished Neutrals: Coppers and Browns

Burnished Neutrals: Coppers and Browns

I gotta tell you, this look was a pain in the behind to photograph. You just can’t see as much color variation in the close-up photos as you typically can. I took photos in a different spot in my house than I normally do (on the floor, ha), so I won’t be doing that again in case that alone was it! (I, as silly as I can be, removed my makeup prior to uploading photos to ensure everything was photographed right and tight!) At least, though, the full face photos turned out and show the look the way it should 🙂 

Happy Friday! What are your Friday plans?  The boyfriend and I are celebrating Valentine’s Day early (we always do it early!) at my very favorite steakhouse.  I’m already salivating over what’s to come, LOL!

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 Drink Me, Eat Me eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Muchness eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Queen eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Add more depth to the crease by applying Mushroom eyeshadow with the 226. Lightly blend Mushroom eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush Muchness eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Shroom eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying 1999 eyeliner on the lower lash line and Honey liner on the lower water line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Peach blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Orange Sequin lipstick first, and then layer Papaya Creme lipgloss for a complementing lip.

I really like the neutral looks you are doing for the Alice in Wonderland palette. Makes it quite tempting for me to pick up that palette as well, though I can justify getting it because I don’t have the majority of the colours in the palette.

Thanks Amy! Glad you’re liking them 🙂

I’m sure you can work with what you already have to get these kinds of looks!

Thank you SO much for doing several looks using shades from Urban Decay and their palettes.

It’s been very helpful in finding clever combinations, like adding Flash to Last Call in the crease in yesterday’s look. I tried it out, and it was quite pretty!

I really love this look, Christine! Thanks for doing this – You’re making me wanna buy the UD AiW pallette! UD should pay you for these looks! 😉 Oh, and OMG, the KissKiss strass lipsticks you used for this look and the antique gold look is really catching my eye – are those from the Spring collection? You’re such a bad influence, hee hee….

Hey Toni!

Thanks so much! 🙂

They debuted for spring, but they *are* permanent thankfully! Will be reviewing them separately soon! (Well, not all the shades, but some!)

Great look! I don’t know, I think the close-up pictures show it off very nicely, though the crease does look even more dramatic in the full-face pic. And YAY Papaya Creme! I *will* get that gloss someday. I can’t afford it for a while yet but I think if I can keep up a month of no makeup I will let that be my next splurge.

Thanks a lot, Daphne! 🙂

Love, love Papaya Creme. I am so glad I convinced myself to order it online (they didn’t have that one when I was in-store)… so pretty.

That’s a REALLY pretty eye Christine! You can tell in the last pic that it’s super gorgeous, even if that camera didn’t pick it all up (which I think it looks awesome and would never have known that, had you not said something LOL). Have a great weekend!

Thanks so much, Stephanie! 🙂

LOL, I just felt like it looked a little “muddy” in a way – not enough of the subtle color differences that are more noticeable in the full face photos, y’know? I was like urghh!!

Happy weekend!

Gosh, you look amazing – this is such a sophisticated and beautiful look. That eyeshadow combination woudl look absolutely killer with pink lips too!

I am so going to try this tonight!

Thank you so much, Nancy!! 🙂 Thank goodness it did – I was like, OK, it’s not a loss, the full face photos show it!

You have such a nice glow here :). I’ll have to try this look too. I tried your other UD look on Thursday before I got really sick and I really liked it. I love that you’re using Honey a lot. It was my first UD product ever, so I totally love it!

very pretty!
