Makeup Monday: Simply Irresistible

The combination of statement eyes and lips always makes me think of Robert Palmer’s video vixens, even though they usually went the smokey eye/red lip route and had super sweet dance moves/guitar skills. I decided to do a second look with Urban Decay’s 15th anniversary eyeshadow collection and since my last look featured its neutral shades, why not go for bigger and bolder color? I paired it with an equally bold lip color – Estée Lauder’s new Fuchsia Velvet lipstick – because Robert Palmer’s girls would’ve liked it that way. I wouldn’t want to let those sexy ladies down.

For what I used and step by step instructions, continue reading after the jump!

(I only used the colors with the red checks on them)

The lipstick is totally up to you. Normally, I would do a more subdued lip color but since I wasn’t actually going anywhere, I went with the bright color (more fun for pictures). My suggestion is a pinky nude, but just have fun with it and do what you want!
