If you’ve ever taken a peek at my instagram (here!) or my snapchat (here!) then you’ve probably seen my intense relationship with the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette. I reviewed it here & basically can’t stop using it. The looks I create are always complimented with this palette- they’re just really unique! Here’s one of my favorite looks using the shades Specter & Element!
Besides the shades Specter & Element from the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette, I also had to dip into the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette (full review here!) for my highlight. I tend to reach for an all-matte palette to supplement looks like this. I used a mix of Blow & Nudie
From my review of the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette Review here – the shades I’m referring to are in the upper left:
Specter- a pale lightly warm frosted ice pink. A sheer color but it builds up & really grabs the light & reflects the brightening pink color!
Element- a vibrant medium red-toned peach with a pink/red shift & glittering texture. This is my absolute favorite. I apply this one wet which helps it hold together better- that helps with flaking! Dry it has more fallout & is more sheer.
I pretty much do the same thing each time. I use a dampened, flat brush & apply Specter in my inner corner. I tend to “press” these shades as I go as well. Next I apply Element to my outer corner. I work my way in & then blend very lightly to connect then about 1/3 of the way in towards my inner corner. Using a soft neutral (Urban Decay Nudie here) I blend just the harsh edges. Then I use a matte highlight (Urban Decay Blow here) & apply to my under eye as well. I always have fallout here- I left it up so you can see it! It isn’t severe but I always want to be upfront! I use a fan brush to brush it away & then I usually set with my translucent setting powder.
Here you can see it in action in my video! I feel like so often you can’t see duochrome shades as well in photos! Hope you can see better here on instagram!
