Vice3 Look: Pinks and Purples

Here are 2 more looks I promised you! If you haven’t checked out the previous 2 looks I created, click here. For the review and swatches of the Urban Decay Vice3 palette, click here. So for these 2 looks, I’ll be using the 3rd and 4th columns of the palette. One is a purple among gold and brown, and the other is a combination of pink and burgundy. Here are how the colours look, for your reference.

The purple look is not as tricky as the pink and burgundy! I was contemplating how to incorporate all 4 shades, and decided not to overdo it and risk looking like a drag. It is still a dramatic look, but you know, sometimes it’s just fun to try out different ways of applying eye makeup. Just for the blog. And you. The colour placements for this look will be Alien on the inner half of the lid, with Alchemy on the outer half of the lid. Bondage is used on the hollow of my eye socket, and Sonic is placed on my lower lash line. Bondage is very pigmented, so I had to use a very light hand because I’m not a huge fan of very obvious or sharp cut crease. I used Black Velvet eye pencil to line both my top and bottom lash line so I wouldn’t look like I have sore eyes. Here is now it looks.




For the next look, I wanted the purple to me the main colour. So I placed Vanity all over my lids and a touch of Bobbi Dazzle on the inner corners of my eyes. Reign is used to add depth on the outer corner of my eyes while the gold in Lucky is great to subtly brighten up the entire look by just adding it on my lower lash line. For this look, I used Tornado to line both my upper and lower lash line 🙂 Here is how it looks.




I hope you enjoyed both these looks. It is of course easier to pair just 2 colours and call it a day, and that’s what I would’ve done if I were to go out. I left out the first column of matte colours because on me, they are a little too light. If you have very pale skin, then they work as a great subtle day time look. DTF and Downfall are great as blending shades, while Truth is a shade I’d use on my brow bone. It’s a little too close a match to my natural skin tone, but it still works to clean up the area. Undone is a little pink for my brow bones, but it works as a lid colour. So now, I have provided you with 4 out of many possible looks. You can mix and match the shades to create a look, and not just follow the coordinated shades according to the columns. It’s all up to your own creativity and imagination!

So… are you wee bit tempted to get this palette? Do you want me to create more looks using this palette? Let me know in the comments below!
