This Urban Decay Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Tutorial Is the Only Type of UV We Can Get BehindAugust 31, 2020
STEP 1: Prime the Eye
To ensure that your ultra-cool shadows last, priming your lid, crease and brow bone is key. Here, San Vicente-Landestoy used the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Waterproof Concealer. Make sure to ring the concealer out to the cheekbone, toward the inner corner of the eye and underneath the lower lash line.
STEP 2: Create Your Shape
Use a frosty blue shade like Euphoric from the Urban Decay NAKED Ultraviolet Palette to line the lash line, and tug it out as if you’re going to create a wing. Be sure to use a small, tapered brush to get the look. Next, go in with a fluffy brush and blend the line you just created out and down, underneath the lower lash line. Smoke out this entire section with your brush.
STEP 3: Layer Your Purples
Now tap a lilac shadow (she used Optimize from the Ultraviolet palette) over the line you just created. This will add opacity and dimension to the look.
STEP 4: Add Your Contrast Shade
Next, pick up a shimmering hot pink shadow like Warning with a super fine, tapered brush and apply it from the inner corner up toward your brow. Extend your line along the brow hairs to elongate the eye.
STEP 5: Fill the Negative Space
Fill in the negative space between your purple and pink lines with a minty green shade like Lucid. Use a fluffy brush to dust it on any part that does not have shadow for a luminescent touch.
STEP 6: Finish the Eyes and Face
Add lashes of your choice and a coat of the Maybelline New York The Falsies Lash Lift Mascara. Give your cheeks some color with a bright pink liquid blush. We recommend the NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Lip + Cheek Tint in Baby Doll.
