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

So far, I have done a purple eye shadow tutorial and a mossy eye shadow tutorial using the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Ammo Shadow Box.

Today, I’m going to do something a bit more work appropriate. I’ll be using Smog, Chopper, Sin and Polyester Bride from this makeup palette, plus some other beauty products to finish off the look.

Let’s get started.

You know the drill. Before you start using shadow, you need to get your face ready. Today I used some translucent powder to smooth out the skin around my eyes and nose. Learn more here: Priming the Canvas: Getting Your Face Ready for Makeup.

Once your face is ready, it’s time for some shimmery eye shadow.

I started with Smog eye shadow moving in an arch from just under the outside corner of my eye (on the bottom lid) up and into the crease of my top lid.

Blending with a bristled eye shadow brush will help make it smoky and well-blended.

Now, you use Chopper in the middle part of the lid. Blend this to the outer edge a bit and up into the crease.

Next is Sin. I seem to use this shadow in every tutorial. It’s my favorite in the makeup palette.

Smooth this from the inside corner and blend it into Chopper. Also, blend it in at the top edge of Smog to soften it a bit.

Finally, use Polyester Bride as a highlighter. Put a dab right at the inside corner of your eye as well as right underneath your eyebrow arch.

Now that you are done with eye shadow, you can finish up your entire look.

For the eyes, I used Incolor FabuLiner Liquid Eyeliner in Brown on the top lid. Then, I used Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara in Very Black on the top and bottom lashes.

For the lips, I used MAC Lustreglass in Ornamental.

Here’s a look at the final results:

It turned out pretty nice. It’s a classy, shimmery look that’s subtle enough to be work appropriate. Plus, since it uses brown shades, it can go with a lot of different outfits.
