Tutorial: Honey Brown FOTD


Here is the tutorial for the "Honey Brown" FOTD I did the other day by a reader's request. Enjoy! ;)

First apply your base, I used UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion):

Then take a bit of the UD "Honey" eyeshadow from the UD Palette....

Then take Milani's "Java Bean" and "Chocolate" (on the same brush, you're gonna mix these two colors together, "Chocolate" for the dark matte color, and "Java Bean" for the shimmer")


Should look like this BEFORE blending:

Then BLEND any harsh lines:

Total hotness! Luv the combo. =)

I noticed that when you apply any shimmery e/s you'll get it on ur lashes. How do u get rid of it before it gets all over the face?

Vanessa said...

Thanks Lilan!

Molly- I just "shake off" the shimmer by wiggling my lashes, then apply my mascara.

Hey Nessa,

Great neutral look, I would never have thought to make beige lippie-yellow gold eye combo.
I have a question: Is the green in the UD palette the same as mac's wondergrass?

vanessa...what kind of blush did u use for this FOTD?

Vanessa said...

Wan, if you click on the link in this post that leads to the original post where I list all the products I used, you will see it, I used MAC "Strata" blush and EDM's "Weekend Getaway"

Vanessa said...

Hi Anonymous, I don't know any drugstore brands that come close to UD's's just such a unique color and very pigmented....

Vanessa said...

Maya, I use both pencil and liquid sometimes one or another, or sometimes both at the same time, but I really like gel eyeliners!

Distinque said...
