Spring-y Pinks with Urban Decay and Becca

I know it's only February, but I cannot wait for spring.  Maybe that's why I'm tending to use so many colors that feel spring-y (as in spring inspired, not elastic and bouncy).  Of course, I had to use the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette.

Pardon the wet hair.

Extreme close-up:

Eyes: from the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette
                   --- Alien (shimmery pink) all over the moving lid
                   --- Alchemy (shimmery raspberry) in the crease and outer v
                   --- Bondage (very dark plum) as liner on the upper and lower lashlines
                   --- Undone (tan) to blend Alchemy above the crease
                   --- Truth (ivory) under the brow and in the inner corner

Cheeks: Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in Lychee/Opal

Lips: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Turn-On
          Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Forbidden Move (discontinued)

The Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in Lychee/Opal is gorgeous.  Seriously.

I usually use my fingers to pat this blush on my cheeks, but I used the Sonia Kashuk duo fiber multipurpose brush (number 115) to apply it today.  Both techniques work well for this spongy-textured blush.

A couple more photos of the look:

Is it spring yet?  I am sick of the snow and the "arctic blast" temperatures.


  1. So fresh and pretty! I love when people sport pink eye shadow- it's more wearable than many think! These tones are so perfect with your eyes :)

  2. Thanks , Jennifer! I quite like pink eyeshadow. :)
