Smoky Blue Eye with Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. #3

I am a big fan of Urban Decay eyeshadows. So much that I collect their Book of Shadows collections that they put out. Today I decided to challenge myself and do a smoky blue eye because it is harder for me to look as good in blues. Surprisingly I found that I really liked the look I did. I must say this about my eyes. I have hooded eyes and the crease overlaps the eye to a certain extent. This is why I must use a deep color shadow in them. Eventually I might have to have plastic surgery if they keep me from seeing. My eye also slants downward, which is why I put a deep color on the outer edge of the lid. It helps to make the lid look less slanted.

 I took Haight and used it in the crease. Haight is a medium to dark turquoise shimmery blue . Then I used Loaded, a dark midnight lightly shimmery blue-black to define the crease more. And I took Loaded and used it in the outer edge of my lid and under the eye as liner. I used Radium, the bright blue shimmery tone, on my lid. I also used it on the inner edge underneath my eye in the inner corner. Finally, underneath the brow I took Midnight Cowboy Rides Again and blended out Haight. Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is a beautiful highly shimmery beige with a little bit of glitter. It didn't have any fallout.

 The Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume #3 is available at www.urbandecay.com and Sephora. The price is $54.00. It has 16 shadows in it. It came out last year for the holiday season but I think a lot of people still don't have it. They are getting ready to release a new Book of Shadows that is going to be spectacular. All of the Urban Decay eyeshadows are pretty great. They go on smooth and have great payoff (pigmentation). Very little fallout (coming off the brush onto the face). Please send me your comments and questions!


  1. Thanks so much! I am honestly surprised that lately I can wear smoky blue looks so well. It just goes to show that sometimes we NEED to go out of our comfort zone. You never know what awaits there. :)

  2. That looks SOOOOOOOOOOOOO cool.
