Makeup Tutorial: Mossy Eye with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Ammo Shadow Box

Last week I showed you how to make a smoky and subtle purple eye using only eye shadow from the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Ammo Shadow Box.

This week, using the same eye shadow pallet as before (and pictured above), I’m going to show you how to do a mossy green/blue eye. This will use the Mildew, Shattered, Maui Wowie and Sin colors from the Urban Decay palette.

You won’t need any other brand of eye shadow.

So, let’s begin.

As always, you’ll want to start by priming your face.  Normally I would at least use some translucent powder. Today: nothing. I didn’t do anything to my face, other than some moisturizer this morning. It may be different for you, though, so check out Priming the Canvas: Getting Your Face Ready for Makeup.

Last week I used Sin as a primer over the entire lid. Not this time. I just start right out with the good stuff.

First, I used the Mildew shadow on the outer half of my eyelid. Starting from the outer corner of the eye, I used this metallic green eye shadow all the way to right in the middle of the lid.

Next, I used Shattered, a blue metallic shadow. I started about a centimeter from the inside corner of the eye and blended it right into the green shadow from the previous step. Don’t blend all of the Mildew away, but about half of it.

Now it’s time for Maui Wowie. This is a slightly glittery beige color. I used this at the inside corner of the eye and blended it into the Shattered color a bit. I also used it to highlight the brow bone by placing it just under the arch of my eyebrow, as you can see in the picture above.

Almost done. I used Sin, a light beige metallic shadow, just above the green and blue to soften the edges and to make the look more cohesive. It fills the gap between the shadow on the lid and the highlight on the brow bone.

Now that we’re done with eye shadow, we need to finish off the look with eyeliner and mascara.

It really makes a difference, doesn’t it?

I used:

If you want to throw on some lipstick, go right ahead. Here’s what I used:

  • Luzier Lipstick in Chilled Burgundy.

And we’re done! Now it’s time to admire the overall beauty of this mossy makeup tutorial:

Done! Very pretty, in my book.
