Dangerous by Urban Decay

Urban Decay makes sultry, smoldering eyes easy with their Dangerous palette, which was a part of my holiday goody showcase a few days ago.  I love how colorful this palette is while remaining dark and gritty.  It also comes with a 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Rockstar as well as a travel-sized Primer Potion in Greed.

Today, I'm going to show you guys my take on Dangerous with this look:

These are the colors I used to get it:

Clockwise from top: 

Mildew, an olive green with golden shimmer
Rockstar, a shimmery, smoky gunmetal plum
Oil Slick, a shimmery black with chunky silver glitter

To start, I'm going to apply Greed to my eyelids:

It's a light-gold primer that applies very shimmery, but becomes more subtle once I pat it evenly on my eyelid.  The formula is very similar in texture to the Original potion, smooth, silky, and light.

Next, I apply Mildew to the inner half of my upper eyelid:

Despite the icky name, Mildew is a very pretty color.  I really like earthy greens.  They give you that bit of color without looking too conspicuous.  Now, I'm going to apply some Oil Slick to the outer corner of my upper eyelid:

Then, I'm going to apply Rockstar shadow along my bottom lash line:

It's a very edgy shade of plum, almost more gunmetal than purple.  We're halfway there!  I'm just going to smoke and soften the edges with a fluffy blending brush:

Using a creamy black gel liner, I'm going to draw a tapered line along my upper lash line, thin towards the inner corner and thick towards the outer corner.  I'm also going to lightly line my bottom lash line as well.

Apply mascara and glittery false lashes and I'm done!

Don't forget to enter my latest GIVEAWAY to win FOUR pairs of Daiso false eyelashes like these! :D

To keep my eyes the center of attention, I'm going to apply a sheer, nude gloss to my lips.  Urban Decay's Lip Junkie Gloss in Wallflower is perfect for this look:

Overall look:

Don't I look DANGEROUS?!, not really.  Lol.  Still, I think it's unique and sexy, while remaining quite wearable.  I dare you guys to try it!  Haha! :D


  1. Wow, your eyeshadow always look so smooth! I don't know why, but I can never get my makeup to look natural like that. I blend, and then sometimes, I overblend! Or I just blend it all over the place... It seems like the more I practice, the worse I get! ^-^; Anyway, I love this look! I didn't expect Rockstar to be that dark though.

  2. superbe ! le mélange de vert et de prune rend très bien

  3. great look, and you have really pretty eyes!

  4. @Jennifer: Aw, thanks! You're so sweet!. :D I'm sure with enough practice it'll click. I used to have the same problem too and then it just worked for me one day. Yeah, I would have wanted Rockstar to be a little more purple, but oh well...I guess they were going for a more edgy look.

    @Laura: Merci beaucoup!

    @Junona: Thank you! :D

    @Ishara: Aw, thanks! I've always been self-conscious about my eyes, but I've been feeling better about them since everyone's been so positive about them! :)

    @Yak Man: Thank you! :)
