Peacock Inspired Vice 3 Tutorial

I have had the Vice 3 Palette from Urban Decay for a couple weeks now and I have been
planning a tutorial, I just wanted to come up with the best look I could for you guys. I also reviewed the Vice 3 here! After many looks this was the one I liked most and the one that I had the most compliments on, from people I know and strangers...this was a clear winner and ideal for Autumn! I hope you like this October Peacock Inspired look. (This could work really well for a Peacock costume for Halloween.)
 I started by using Makeup For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in N115, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow in Ebony, Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, Rimmel Stay Matte in Translucent...and Satin Finish GiftWrap Tape from Scotch Tape.

I sometimes like to use this tape (it's not too sticky and doesn't bother my skin) to create a crisp line for an eye look. You want to be sure not to put it on top of your bottom lashes but under them and try to keep the angle the same on both sides. If you are unsure look at the space between the tail of your brow and the tape.
 After priming my eye lids and placing the tape just right, I took 1) Bobby Dazzle and placed it in the inner corners of my eyes and on my brow bone. It is a bit to stark white for my liking so I popped a bit of 1.5) Truth on top and blended the two. Then I took 2) Down Fall and worked that into the crease (If you have extra room on the lid, like I do, go a bit above the crease.) Bring this same shade down onto the lid creating an outer V shape. Then Take 3) Last Sin and place that in the inner 1/4 of the eye.
 Next take 4) Broke Down, on a flat shadow brush, on the center and outer 3/4 of the lid. Beware of fall out and be ready with a fluffy powder brush to dust it away. Now, on the same brush, take 5) Dragon and place that on top of 4) Broke Down. The two mixed together create a olive toned, bronzed green shade. Next, on an angled brush, I took 6) Heroine and against the tape create a long cat-eye. Go back over with a bit of  7) Revolver to deepen the tone. The cat-eye reached towards the tail of the brow.
 Last with the shadows I took 8) Defy and ran a little in the center of my socket, with a fluffy blending brush, to give some depth and definition. I pealed the tape off once I was all done blending and was happy with the eye look and brushed away any fall out. I retouched the areas where I lost coverage from the tape, which was minimal. I also softly ran 8) Defy along my lower lash line to open the eye up and smoke out the look a touch. Then I took Stila Smudge Crayon Water Proof Primer+Shadow+Liner (longest name ever) onto my waterline and tight-line.
 I used Urban Decay Perversion Mascara & SubversionPrimer and Ardell Fashion Lashes in 116. I lined my lips with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone and, with a lip brush, used OCC Lip Tar - Matte in Black Dahlia. This strip might be too much for some if that's you I suggest using a nude lip gloss, like Urban Decay Naked Gloss in Nooner.

So that's the look! I hope that you liked it and that maybe it gave you some ideas on how
you can use the Vice 3 palette yourself. If you missed my review click here. If you've done any looks with this palette I'd love to see them so please link your blog posts or tweet them to me  @lipstickisalife. Would you wear this sort of look or rock it with a costume for Halloween? Let me know in the comments, I love chatting with you.
