Urban Decay Smoked Palette: Reality Star Tutorial

Welcome to the LAST Urban Decay Smoked Palette tutorial!!  Now, that is not to say that I won’t be using my Smoked Palette in any more looks because Lord knows how much I love it, but I’ve finally completed my Lookbook series.  HOORAY!  I’ve loved doing this series so so much and I appreciate all of the support and encouragement you’ve given me since I started.  You guys keep me going!  This last look is the “Reality Star” to help you channel you inner Kardashian.  I keep it more pretty and subtle, but you can always amp it up if you’re more of a Snooki or JWoww. I truly love this look and have already worn it multiple times, so I hope you love it too!

Don’t you just love how pretty this look is?  I think it looks so great paired with a pink sheer lip.  I know I always mention this in my tutorials, but I can’t stress this enough.  Use gel or liquid eyeliner to draw clean lines–NOT pencil.  It’s so hard to control a pencil and, no matter how sharp it is, you just can’t get the lines precise enough.  Seriously, eyeliner doesn’t have to be hard.  If you don’t have the steadiest of hands, go for gel and apply it with a brush.  If you’re a pro, then use liquid.  I like to use pencil liners to line my waterlines and smudged out as a base under smoky eyes.

I thought it would be fun to pair my edgy (minus the) leather (that is faux leather in EXPRESS language) moto jacket with a pretty chiffon top and frilly facinator headband to compliment this look.  From the makeup to the accessories, I kept it consistent with the girly-punk look.

As I said earlier, I kept this look pretty toned down, but if you wanted a more intense smoky eye, just add more Asphalt and pull it further out of the crease.  I have small eyelids and small creases, so these looks can easily get really overpowering if I’m not careful. You have to remember to adapt this look (and any look for that matter) to your own eye shape, but that’s most important with any bold, smoky look.

Ta ta for now, folks!! Thank you again so so much for supporting me and encouraging me throughout this series.  You’ll never know how much you all mean to me, and I won’t ever be able to thank you enough.  I hope y’all enjoy all of the other things I have planned just as much.  Please leave comments for any tutorials, TAGs, vlogs, etc you’d like to see from me in the future.  Now that I’ve finished this series, I can be more flexible with my filming schedule.

    There are a lot of beauty gurus doing smoked palette tutorials, but yours are by far the best! I’ve LOVED this series and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us with the Vice palette!

    It smudges so much…are there any tips to prevent it from smudging?

      Is it smudging throughout the day? Or are you having fall out issues? If it’s smudging throughout the day, be sure you’re wearing an eye primer underneath your shadow. If you’ve got oily skin/eyelids, I’ve heard Too Faced Shadow Insurance is a great one! If you’re having fall out issues, there are a couple of things that might help. 1. Be sure to knock off excess shadow on your hand. 2. Dampen your brush with a LITTLE water or a baby wipe before applying the shadow. Good luck! 🙂
