Vice3 Look: Colours and Neutrals

I have created 2 looks using the Vice 3 palette. There will be 2 more, but first, I want to show you something neutral and basic using the far right column of the palette (taupes and neutrals), and also another more colourful look using the second column from the left (blue, green, navy and dirty gold). Just to remind you, here’s how the palette looks, and click here for the swatches if you haven’t seen it yet.

 

UD Vice3 palette

 

The first look is an understated neutral one. Basically, I divided my lid into 3 parts. On the inner third of my lid, I applied Last Sin. At the centre, I dabbed on Angel before using Defy on the outer third corner. Then with a small eye brush, I used Revolver to line my upper and lower lash line, before lining my eyes with Zero on the upper lash line and Demolition on my lower lash line. Then using Last Sin again, I highlighted the inner half of my lower lash line. It is a pretty basic look, something that flatters all eye shapes. Here is how it looks.

For the colourful and more playful look, I decided to use Dragon as the main lid colour. I applied it on my entire lid, leaving the outer third clean, because I wanted to pair it with Brokedown. This pairing itself doesn’t create a lot of contrast, and that’s what I wanted. I wanted the contrast to be the blues against the green and gold. With the dual ended pencil liner in Perversion / LSD, I lined both my top and bottom lash line using LSD. I then darkened the upper lash line using Heroine (winging out the line a little further than usual) and smudged out the lower lash line using Freeze. The final look is something like this.

 

blue green

 

There you go. A neutral basic look for every day and a more playful look just for the heck of it. I will post 2 more looks, one using the pink and burgundy, and the other using purple and browns (3rd and 4th column of the palette). I hope you enjoyed this, and that it gave you an idea of how the palette performs. The possibilities are endless! These are just 2 of the many many looks you can create šŸ™‚ Have you checked out Vice3 yet?

  • The neutral eye look is so pretty! I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with the 3rd and 4th column colours, because those shades are the ones that I gravitate towards when using eyeshadow. šŸ˜€

    • Lily

      Thanks Laura. I try to use too 4 shades, but the palette is definitely more wearable if you stick to just maybe 2 or 3 shades, especially for the purples and the pinks. I just took photos of the looks, so stay tuned šŸ™‚

  • Emma Bovary

    Those looks are so stunning, great job at showing the versatility of this palette

    • Lily

      Thank you Emma. It’s definitely a versatile palette šŸ™‚

  • Liz

    Um, you’re starting to convince me, lol. I just hate the giant size though!

    • Lily

      LOL Liz. I guess size does matter, big or small šŸ˜›

  • This is so pretty! I tried to put colors on my lower lashline yesterday, but it looked terrible. I don’t know how to do it, lol!

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie šŸ™‚ Maybe try smudging some colour very close to your lower lash line, but only on the outer third first, to see how it looks? Or maybe you’re just not used to it yourself?

  • I love the neutral look, so beautiful, The colourful one looks fun but I know I would not be brave enough to walk out like that šŸ™‚

    • Lily

      I know what you mean, Sofia šŸ™‚ That’s the fun in having a blog because I can do looks like this. I just remove it after taking photos. Hahaha!

  • Amazing looks, Lily! I seldom wear “color” on my eyes nowadays, because I mostly reach for a bolder lipstick. That colorful look is very inspiring though šŸ™‚

    • Lily

      I know what you mean. I’ve been wearing darker lips as well, and it’s best to go with minimal eye makeup.

  • I love both of the looks, very nicely blended and the idea of that green with blue looks so good. I love my demolition liner too, and twice baked, these two are my holy grail UDs.

    • Lily

      Thank you Sara šŸ™‚ The UD eye liners are one of my favourites out there!

  • Jaa

    Lovin’ both looks, Lily! You’re a pro at blending! I can never get it right. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I think everything is properly blended and then on camera – bam! – I see a clear line between the shadow and my skin. LOL.

    • Lily

      Thanks Jaa šŸ™‚ I’m very fussy when it comes to blending. LOL!

  • LOVE both!! They look gorgeous on you! And your blending skillz are SKILLZ. Seriously.

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy. I’m pretty fussy when it comes to blending. Sometimes I blend too much. Heh!

  • Oh my gosh, Chloe! I am in love with your second look! The color combination is to die for! Gorgeous. And great blending work!

    • Lily

      Thank you šŸ™‚

  • You’re really amazing with gradation works! Love both looks. The second one is especially pretty. Reminds me of a beautiful bird. šŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thanks Lena! Beautiful bird like… peacock? LOL!

  • Shu Ting

    waaaaa I love both looks!! Love so much the eyeliner on the neutral look. And your lower lash lines! So clean!! I always mess up the lower lash lines!! boo…! šŸ™

    • Lily

      I always have cotton buds nearby. So when I mess up, I just use it to clean it out šŸ™‚

      • Shu Ting

        I must have zero skill in cleaning. The more I used cotton buds (sometimes mascara smudge to lower lash lines) the more messed up it is! Instead of a black dot, I now get a smudges black line across the lower lash! gaaaaah!!!

        • Lily

          Do you drag the cotton bud along your lash line to get rid of the mascara? For mascara goop on the lower lash line, I usually roll the cotton bud upwards and outwards, under the lashes instead of moving it left and right, if you know what I mean. If it’s eye shadow mess, I clean up before applying mascara. If dry cotton bud doesn’t do the trick, I’d wet the cotton bud using micellar water then clean up the mess. Problem is having to apply foundation again. Hope that wasn’t confusing (??)

          • Shu Ting

            No it is very informative! I swipe in one direction towards the outer corner. I usually do my makeup in office so I don’t have any micellar water handy. I think I need to start packing a small bottle in my bag now!

            • Lily

              Ah, swiping it will make a mess out of mascaras. Try rolling it šŸ™‚
