Happy Friday my friends! Today I bring you a fun Valentine’s Day collab!
For this tag, each of use created a full face look along with an outfit idea using Polyvore. The twist, we each had to use only one eye palette to create an eye look.
I decided to use the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette, this was a limited edition palette that released last fall, but you can find my swatches and mini-review on it here.
Let’s get started!
For the eye look, I wanted to go for something a bit more dark, but with a pop of color in the center of the lid.
Here’s what I did!
- I started by priming my eye lids, you can use the eye primer of your choice.
- I then mixed Habit and Rewind and placed that in my crease, using this as a transition shade.
- Next, I used an angled crease brush and took Derailed, I placed this shade in the inner and outer corners of my eyelids, making sure to enough room in the middle of my lid for a different shade.
- Then, I took a small blending brush, and softly blended the colors to meet at my crease, still leaving a blank area in the center of my lid.
- Taking Betrayal with a flat shader brush, or with your finger, I placed it right at the center of my eyelid, I made sure to pack the color in very well.
- With a blending brush, I gently blended around my crease…gently.
- I then took Derailed and placed that on my inner and outer lash line, and Betrayal right in the center, mimicking the eyelids.
- Lastly, I used Dope as a brow bone and inner corner highlight.
- I skipped the winged liner and instead I lined very closely to my lash line as well as my waterline.

My husband and I are pretty low key, we usually do dinner or spend a weekend away…but I still love getting all dressed up. For the outfit I created, I went for something a lot more my style. I think this outfit represent me very well. Sophisticated yet fun, with the pops of orchids and pinks. (You can’t really tell from the picture, but the necklace has little orchid colored gems along with some pinks.)
