Alchemy and Androgyny

Happy Sunday!

Ever since Christmas day, I’ve been dying to create a look using my new Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette. There’s so many combinations and colours to choose from however I’ve gone straight for a look with the colours I am most drawn to within the palette. I also feel like this is quite a safe look using colour, if you don’t usually wear bright eyes, this is definitely a look to transition into a brighter and more exciting eyeshadow life. As much as I love nudes, try colour one day a week, it’ll change your life.



I created a blank canvas from my lash line to my brow bone using the shade Bump. Next I used Courtney from the Jeffree Star Beauty Killer Palette in my crease as a transition colour. I went on to use Jones to deepen the crease slightly. I then added the shade Alchemy to the inner and outer corners of my eyes. To make this look a little bit more sunsetty, we’ll pretend that’s a word, and warm, I added Warning in the centre. Then I lined my lower lash line with Faded to add a slightly cooler contrast. To highlight my inner corners, I used Models Own Colour Chrome Eyeshadow in Copper Lustre, which, as you may know, I use constantly to brighten my inner corners. To blend this in, I have been loving buffing the edges using a Jack Wills blending brush from this Brush Set, which I can only find on eBay now. I topped it off with a winged liner and Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara.


I have recently picked up Soap and Glory’s Brow Archery in Dark Chocolate which I have been loving using to outline my brows. I fill in the rest using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in shade Ash Brown. I used to just use the Dipbrow on its own which works great too if you’re looking to only use one product on your brows. I could rave about it all day, I’ve literally had the same pot since march and I’m still yet to hit pan on it, totally justified spending £15 on it.


I’ve gone back to using Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade fair. I know this is everyone’s go to concealer but I’ve rediscovered it and I’m loving it again. I blended this and my foundation using my Beauty Blender which I have been enjoying using very much. I plan to do a review/comparison post on beauty sponges to keep your eyes peeled for that one. For this look, I wanted a warmer glow than I usually go for to tie the look together nicely, so for highlight I used Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in shade King Tut. I applied this using the Morphe M510 brush which is recommended by the glowing gods, NikkieTutorials and Jeffree Star. This is a recent purchase but I’m starting to see what all the hype is about.


For the lips, I used Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade Androgyny. I nearly chose a different lipstick to go with this look, however, I’m so glad I went for this one as I love matching my eyeshadow and my lipstick and I’ve never seen a more bang on match than Alchemy and Androgyny. Love it!
