Urban Decay Turquoise and Chocolate Tutorial

I had fun putting together this turquoise and chocolate look. These two colors are actually throughout my kitchen and living room. The woman I purchased my home from was an interior designer and she was obsessed with these shades.

How to achieve the look:

  1. Prep the eye with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. Apply Urban Decay Freestyle to the crease and browbone.
  3. Apply Backdoor deeply in the crease, blending it upwards.
  4. Highlight under the brow with Kinky.
  5. Pat Shattered on the inner 3/4 of the lid.
  6. Apply Haight to the outer 1/4 of the lid, blending into Shattered.
  7. Use Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Bourbon along the outer upper lash line.
  8. With a smudger brush, blend Backdoor on top of Bourbon on the upper lash line and blend inwards, and along the lower lash line, blending inwards. Also blend into the outer v.
  9. Blend some more Backdoor into the crease, blending inwards.
  10. Blend the edges of Freestyle and Backdoor.
  11. Add a bit of Shattered to the inner lower lash line and blend outwards.
  12. Smudge a bit more of Backdoor along the upper lash line.
  13. Add Kinky to the inner corner of the eye and highlight under the brow with it.
  14. Line the lower waterline with UD 24/7 liner in Midnight Cowboy and add some mascara.
