Palette of the Week - The Glinda Palette by Urban Decay

Part 2 - Favorite Makeup Looks
Here are a few of the makeup looks I created, using the Glinda palette (please forgive the bad photography!  I'm not so good at taking pictures of myself :-).  If you don't have this palette, you can easily recreate these looks using similar colors you may already have in your makeup collection.  Or, get inspired with these application techniques and create your own unique look with completely different colors!


Look #1:
Colors used:
 Browbone:  Aura (blue/violet side)
Crease:  Illusion with Magic blended over it
Upper eyelid:  Smudged black liner along lash line first; placed Oz (silver side) on inner 2/3 of lid; blended Tornado in outer corner and outer crease; lightly dusted South over Oz

  Look #2:
Colors Used:
 Browbone:  Aura (blue/violet side)
Crease:  Illusion with South blended over it
Upper Eyelid:  To make the purple more vibrant, start with a white, non-shimmery base...I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk; pack on Tornado eye shadow over the white base; add a tiny bit of South in outer corner and blend into crease.
Eye Liner:  Upper lash line - Black; Lower lash line - "Rockstar" (dark eggplant)

Look #3 (my favorite ;-):
 
 Colors Used:
 This look is one that Urban Decay included on a card that comes with the palette:
Browbone:  Aura (blue/violet side)
Crease:  Illusion
Upper Eyelid:  South blended up to the crease and slightly up at the outer corners; Tornado blended into the outer corner and outer crease
Eye Liner:  Upper and half of lower lash line - "Rockstar" (deep eggplant); also added a little black liner to outer edge of upper lash line
Lips:  Glinda Super Saturated Lip Pencil

In the future, when I do these "Favorite makeup Look" blogs, I may include more detailed information regarding the types of brushes used, my foundation, blush color, lip color etc.....let me know if that would be helpful to you :-)

Now go and have some fun with your makeup today!
