St. Patrick’s Day Eye Look feat. Urban Decay Theodora Palette

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone! In the spirit of the holiday, I did a quick tutorial for you that you could wear out while having some green beer or Irish whiskey! Or if you’re like me, and you are going to stay in with the family, you can feel festive just for the fun of it!

I used one of my new favorite eyeshadow palettes: the Theodroa palette by Urban Decay inspired by the new Oz the Great and Powerful movie.

Step 2: Using a large flat brush, place the light green color in the Jealous shadow duo on the middle of the eyelid. I used the Sephora Pro allover shadow brush (# 12) for this step.

Step 3: Using a smaller shadow brush or an angled brush, place the darker green from the Jealous duo on the outer 1/3 of the eyelid and into the crease. I used the small Sephora airbrush shadow brush.

Step 4: Using a damp brush to really get the color to pop, place the yellow-gold color of the the Spell duo on the inner corner of the eyelid and all along the lower lash line coming up to meet the dark green. For this is used the Sephora Pro small shadow brush (#15)

Step 5: clean up and blend edges and highlight brow bone with the light color Broken and define eyebrows. I used the Sephora Pro dome shadow brush (# 13) with Broken and I defined eyebrows with Tarte EmphasEYES brow mousse in rich brown.

Step 6: Finish the eyes by lightly lining the top and bottom lashes with the included black 24/7 eyeliner in Zero and apply 2 coats of your favorite mascara. I used the LORAC Pro mascara for this look.


Step 7: Complete the look with a pop of pink blush and hot pink lipstick. I used NARS Gaiety Blush with the Sephora Pro natural domed powder brush (# 59) and Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Fuchsia Shock.
