Create the look

On saturday night I created this bronzed smokey eye look. Starting off with the shade Enigma to create a light base.Then applying shade Influence across my socket. I adore this smoked out gold shade infused with glitter to make my eyes really pop! Then with this copper shade Not For Sale  I applied it in circular motion, just over the crease of my eye.

I found this palette super easy to use and to create different looks. I love how each shade effortlessly blend together to create a smokey eye. You have the control to create a simple or dramatic look depending on what suits your own personalised style. If you are looking to invest in one palette this summer, Pick up the Urban Decay Jean – Michel Basquiat edition you won’t regret it
