I wanted to do something different in terms of eyeshadow placement and colour combinations and came up with this look. I used bright gold and black from the Urban Decay Vice XX Ltd Reloaded Palette to create a strong, contrasting effect on the eyes. The black is meant to be very defined in this look, which is why I haven’t blended it out or softened the edges.
To complement the look: I used The Balm Greatest Hits Volume 2 In The Balm of Your Hand Palette for bronzer, brusher and highlighter. I finished off the look with MAC Syrup on the lips.

This is the first of my looks using the new Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette. I really wanted to try out some of the greens in the palette but I also liked the idea of adding in a little pop of red in the outer v. If the red (Gash) is too much for you, you could always substitute it with a green (like Misdemeanor) or a brown (like Smog or Twice Baked) from the palette.

This look is a slightly brighter version of the ‘Twist of Colour’ look I posted recently. For this look, I used a bright, shimmery silver on the lid, cork brown in the crease and a ‘pop’ of bright blue in the outer v part of the lid.
Tip: The beauty of this look is that you can adapt it using any other colour in the outer v. Try pink, purple, olive green, charcoal and black for a twist on the same look.
Note: You can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades to re-create this look (if you don’t have the Vice 2 palette).
Adding in a bright colour to the outer v is a easy way to introduce colour without it being overpowering. For this look, I pepped up a relatively neutral silver and brown eye combination with a ‘pop’ of emerald green.
Tip: The beauty of this type of look is that you can adapt it using any colour in the outer v. Try swapping in purples, blues, coppers and blacks for an interesting twist on the same look.
Note: You can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades to re-create this look (if you don’t have the Vice 4 palette).
