FOTD: Taupe & Pewter Smokey Eyes with Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 2

Here's another look using the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. II. As I prefer, its about the eyes. This time around I'm using pale silvery beige, taupe and pewter. To balance it out, I used MAC Tippy Beauty Powder Blush from the MAC Hello Kitty Collection. Just goes to be shown that you can use a bright blush lightly and not look like a clown ;) I must say, I can't believe I haven't been using the UD Book of Shadows Vol. II as much as I should. I'm quite enjoying it and extremely excited for the Urban Decay Disney Alice in Wonderland palette. I just got it in the mail this last Friday, so product pictures, review and swatches are on there way :)

What I used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot, Bare Study
MAC Eye Shadow, Chamomile
Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol II, Sellout, YDK, Mushroom, Gunmetal
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner, Stash
MAC Studio Fix Lash Mascara, Black Fix
MAC Fluidline, Blacktrack

MAC Beauty Powder Blush, Tippy
MAC Beauty Powder, Shell Pearl

MAC Lipstick, Warm Me Up
MAC Lipgelee, Resort Life

  1. pretty! Love that sweater too, it brings out your eyes. ;o)

  2. Thanks Susie! It's one of my favorite sweaters. It has a giant pocket in the front to keep my hands warm. I think I paid $10 for that sweater about 3 years ago ;)
