UD Vice 2 Tutorial: Simple Green Eyes

 

Hello there! Today I bring you a simple look using my new Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I'm just in love with it. I don't own a whole lot of green eyeshadows so I wanted to do a simple, wearable look using "Damaged." If you want to see how I achieved this, click below :) also: I wanted to point out that some of my pictures just look horrible and I really can't figure out why. My skin looks very splotchy and weird in the picture after the jump, and looks completely fine in the final pictures. The only editing I did to any of the pictures was cropping so I just don't understand! Also, they do not look like that in the originals, I'm at a loss, anyone have any ideas?

 

1. I started with a primed lid, and applied the shade Damaged all over my lid with a flat shader brush.

2. Using a dome shaped crease brush, I buffed a little Stash into my crease.

3. With a larger crease brush, I applied Rewind in the crease. This ended up overpowering Stash but I just wanted to show you exactly that I did. I also took a bit of Naked 2 from the Naked Basics palette to help blend out Rewind. I took a short smudge brush and applied Damaged along my lower lashline. I also applied Shellshock to my inner corner.

4. To finish up, I applied W.O.S to highlight, I used a Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal liner(in I believe Jungle Green) on my water line, and added some winged liner using the L'Oreal Infallible Super Slim liner. Yes, I used liquid liner with a felt tip! I feel like since I bought it, I had to make it work. It's actually a really nice liner! I also applied red cherry lashes in #43.

 

Annnndd that's it! It's easy but looks fancy. I really can't wait to do some other looks with this palette. If you want to see my full review on this palette you can see that here :) thanks for reading everyone, I hope you enjoyed this post!
