Eye shadow to Match Every Outfit

Wednesday, August 02, 2017

Urban Decay Shadow Box PaletteWhen I first got this Urban Decay Shadow Box palette, I took it on a trip to experiment with it. Turns out it was like the best palette I could bring for such a purpose. It has so many colors that complimented every outfit I had brought on the trip. And with such a broad range of colors, there are so many fun combinations you can use to create different eye shadow looks. All the colors are shimmers, so if you need a matte, you'll have to reach for a different palette.

Here is a look where I showcased the beautiful sparkly deep blue color called Moonshadow. First, I used  Smog as a crease color. Smog is a medium shimmer golden brown. Next I used a "C" eye shadow brush to pack a good layer of Moonshadow above my lash line. Last of all, I used Lancome Definicils mascara. I opted for no eyeliner this time because I thought the Moonshadow was dark enough for a daytime look.

Honestly, I didn't think I would really like this look, but every time I looked in the mirror, I was amazed at how pretty the blue looked for a daytime application.

Urban Decay Shadow Box PaletteToday I used the Urban Decay Shadow Box palette again. This time, I used the color Moonshadow in the crease and outer V corner of my eye. Then I used the color Baked Cowboy, a shimmery gold, in the center of the lid and above the lash line.

For the moonshadow, I used a small amount and blended really well. It gave a fairly subtle look for the day, but the Baked Cowboy added a little shimmer to the look. I used Blackout as eyeliner again, using the e.l.f. small smudge brush. Finally, I used Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara.

Here is another look I did with the Urban Decay Shadow Box palette.

Smog, a medium golden brown, in crease
Flash, a shimmery cool light purple, on lid
Blackout, a matte black, for liner


For this look, I also used Lancome Monsieur Big mascara. I've been testing this mascara out to see if I like it. It definitely seems to thicken my lashes. But I may have to try applying Lancome's Definicils mascara first for length, and then layering Monsier Big on top. I do that with Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara, and it comes out great.

Green Eye Shadow

On this day I was wearing a green dress. And I know they say you don't have to or shouldn't match your eye shadow to your clothes. But its so fun to do. And with the Urban Decay Shadow Box palette, you can! So here I used the Indo (a shimmery cool green color) from the palette for the overall color. Then I used the Baked (a shimmery gold color) to add a little dimension just over the center of the top lash line. And once again, I used Blackout (a very pigmented matte black) as the liner.

Urban Decay Shadow Box Moonshadow & Smog LookToday I went with blue again because I was wearing a blue dress, and though it might be totally cheesy, I just love matching my eye shadow to my outfits. Here I used Smog all around the crease area. Then I applied Moonshadow all over the lid and blended it into the crease. I went a little darker with both colors on the outer corners of my eyes. I got an interesting blend between the two that I really liked.
