Make Up Tutorial | Mardi Gras!

XO, Noelle 04 March 2014
Woohoo! Mardi Gras is today and if you're like me, well you probably aren't there celebrating. Instead I'll be totally reminiscing about the one time I went to New Orleans (not for Mardi Gras) and it was still IN-SANE! Wedding parties walking down the street complete with a huge band, drinks flowing, dancing, etc. Bourbon Street is a party any night of the week and there are constantly beads being thrown around when the sun goes down if you catch my drift. Oh yeah baby!

I started out the look by priming my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion. In retrospect, a green cream base or even a white base to make the green eyeshadow pop would've probably worked better. Merp. You live and learn. From the Urban Decay Ammo Palette, I patted Mildew (what a gross name for a gorgeous shadow!) all over my lid. I then took Nooner from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and swept that into my crease making sure to blend into Mildew for a seamless transition. It's a fantastic transition shade! Then going back to the Ammo Palette, I wanted to incorporate a fun purple so I took Last Call and took that onto my lower lash and blended out. For the inner corner, I wanted a pigmented gold so I used Limelight from the Urban Decay Mariposa Palette. Lastly, I took my handy dandy Eddie Funkhouser Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus and created a double-winged eyeliner to make it funky! :)

Anyone celebrating Mardi Gras? What are your plans!? I leave you all with an extremely blurry picture of Bourbon Street. I promise it is :)

    1. Thank you! It was a bit more bold in real life but camera always dulls it down! :(
