Holiday Look #1: Featuring Blue Brown Pigment from MAC

This year the Office of Multicultural Affairs at my oldest daughter’s college is hosting a Holiday Social. Rae had expressed interest in going to this event. I came up with this look if she decides to attend. I used the Blue Brown Pigment from MAC as a part of her eye look. I also wanted a look she could do on her own if she decides to attend other Holiday parties.

Holiday Before Picture Before

Holiday Blue BrownI applied Blue Brown Pigment from MAC with a damp eyeshadow brush to the lid.

Holiday SketchIn the past I have paired Blue Brown with Handwritten as a crease color on myself. I used Sketch as a crease color on Rae.

Holiday CraveI used Crave from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette on the outer V.

Holiday Naked2I used Naked2 from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette on the brow bone.

Holiday ZeroYou can use any black eyeliner you choose. I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero to the upper and lower lash line. You can apply the mascara of your choosing and apply false eyelashes for extra glam.

Holiday LoverushI applied the MAC blush in Loverush to the apples of Rae’s cheeks.

A Closer Look: Naked Basics Palette from Urban Decay

When Urban Decay first released the Naked Basics Palette, I wasn’t sure if I was going to buy it. I already have the original Naked Palette and Naked 2 Palette. I didn’t see the point in purchasing the Naked Basics Palette. I did think about this palette having more matte colors though. My opinion changed once I visited my local ULTA and swatched the colors. Great color payoff and the shadows blend so nicely. The compact case with mirror is an extra bonus.

Whether you have the original Naked Palette or the Naked 2 Palette, the Naked Basics is a great addition. The matte eyeshadows work great with both palettes. The Naked Basics Palette retails for $27 and can be purchased at ULTA, Sephora, and the Urban Decay website
