Urban Decay Heavy Metals Eye Makeup Look.

The newest and fanciest looking palette from Urban Decay comes in the form of the Heavy Metals palette. Pure metallic pigments, bright colours and ultra-bledable, creamy textures. For full swatches and review then do check out my post here.

This is all about a quick makeup look I did with this palette and a link to my tutorial if you fancy a watch. I stepped out of my comfort zone, and opted to use the blues, greens as opposed to what I usually would have : the warm golds and coppers. These shadows apply so SO well and are very buttery so a forewarning..if you are doing a heavy eye look with these, definitely do your foundation after your eyes as you will get a little bit of fallout / droppage from the shadows.

I used lots of the blues and greens with a good emphasis on the lower lash line colour. Main colours from the palette I used were DIVE (blue), AMP (teal) and METALHEAD (burgundy-purple). <Totally not the colours I would ever use, but it’s good to switch things up hey?! A swipe of bright blue eyeliner on the inner rim and lashing of liquid eyeliner and mascara to give a strong feline flick. I opted for a nude lip although I think this would have worked well with a bolder lip too – I used the Urban Decay VICE lipstick in Unicorn which was paler on me than I remember so I enhanced it a little with the MAC Pinkie lipliner.

For full product breakdown and a quick 8-minute tutorial then have a watch of the video. I’m not a complete Blue/Green eyeshadow convert but I will absolutely be stepping away from the reds, browns and coppers a *little* bit more.
