I used the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette (Venus, Naked 2, Faint, and Crave) and an OCC lip tar in Vintage.

Step by step tutorial:

1. Put Venus all over your lid using a shader brush

2. Use a fluffy crease brush to put Naked 2 throughout your entire crease

3. Using a dense crease brush or a pencil brush, put Faint along the outer 1/3 of your lash line and the outer-v of your eye

4. Using a large blending brush, buff everything out so that there are no harsh lines

5. Use a small, dense brush (like a liner brush!) to put Crave lightly along the lash line.  Gently blend/smudge upward as you place Crave along the lash line to achieve a softer, smokier look.

6. Put Venus along the brow bone as a highlight.

7. Apply your choice of mascara (I used Maybelline’s The Falsies Flared)

8. Apply two thin coats of OCC’s Lip Tar in Vintage

9. Apply Milani’s Dolce Pink blush all over the apples of your cheeks and through your cheek bones.

10. Look fabulous while taking on your day (or night!).
