Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Fun Palette Tutorial

I put together a look using all of the colors from the Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Fun Palette. You can check out the Feminine Palette and the Dangerous Palette, too. The Fun Palette colors are very ‘me’. Sadly, my allergies are horrible right now, my eyes are very watery, itchy, and irritated, so I stayed away from liner. I also am showing off the OCC Lip Tar Nylon, which is exclusive to Sephora. Love this!

You can see how my eyes are hooded in this shot.

How to Achieve the Look:

  1. Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. Use a fluffy brush to apply Sellout to the browbone, blending downwards.
  3. With a lid brush, apply Deep End to the inner 3/4 of the lid.
  4. Use a rounded crease brush to apply Freakshow to the outer 1/4 of the lid and the lower crease.
  5. Use a fluffy highlighter brush to blend out the edges of Freakshow with Fishnet.
  6. With a stiff smudger brush, smudge Stray Dog along the lower lash line.
  7. Add Maui Wowie to the inner v with a small fluffy brush.
  8. Add mascara and you’re good to go!

What do you think of my Fun Palette look? I almost feel like this is a signature sort of look for me, with a rich bright teal on the lid, dark purple to contour, pink higher in the crease and a bit of pink champagne or peach on the browbone. I love how it turned out, though I hate my allergies. After taking pictures I had to take off my makeup because of the irritation that I’m experiences with my eyes.

Some products purchased by me. Some products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

      Lovely look, the colors suit your eyes and your hair great!

      Funny though, i saw the thumbnail of this on facebook and my first thought was ‘UD Fun palette!’, but I had no idea there was a new version of it, I was assuming it was the old version since they kept the same color scheme :)

      • Phyrra

        Yep, it’s the new one ;) LOVE these colors! They’re so pretty, pigmented and buttery smooth to use.
