Makeup Monday: Simply Irresistible







The combination of statement eyes and lips always makes me think of Robert Palmer's video vixens, even though they usually went the smokey eye/red lip route and had super sweet dance moves/guitar skills. I decided to do a second look with Urban Decay's 15th anniversary eyeshadow collection and since my last look featured its neutral shades, why not go for bigger and bolder color? I paired it with an equally bold lip color - Estée Lauder's new Fuchsia Velvet lipstick - because Robert Palmer's girls would've liked it that way. I wouldn't want to let those sexy ladies down.

For what I used and step by step instructions, continue reading after the jump!











(I only used the colors with the red checks on them)
Eyes:
Smashbox Brow Tech to go (brows)
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay's 15th anniversary eyeshadow collection
- Junkshow on lids, Vanilla for highlight, Omen in crease and Blackout in outer v (c/o Urban Decay)
Milani Metallic eye pencil
Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara (c/o Urban Decay)

Face:
Smashbox Photo Finish
MUFE HD Foundation in 110
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
MAC Semi Precious Pearl Mineralize Skinfinish (cheeks)
 
Lips:
Estée Lauder Fuchsia Velvet










The lipstick is totally up to you. Normally, I would do a more subdued lip color but since I wasn't actually going anywhere, I went with the bright color (more fun for pictures). My suggestion is a pinky nude, but just have fun with it and do what you want!

  45. Hi Keiko! I've been reading your blog for a while now and have never commented for some reason but I just had to leave you a little note to say how much I enjoy your inventiveness with Make Up Monday! I look forward to it every week and I'm really happy you're using the new UD palette as I just received it as a birthday present this week! I've done lots of looks with it already, can't believe how versatile it is! I can't wait to get a hold of the new UD lip colours you reviewed, they look amazing!

    Thanks for the time and effort that goes into doing these posts!

  48. Every time I see you in super bright eye makeup looks I think how smashing they look on you, but when I try to wear bright makeup I feel like I look like a clown, and end up taking them off. :-(

    Any tips for working bright colors? Did you have to get used to them gradually?
