Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box Look #2: Neutral Pops Blue Version 2.0

Here's the second install for the Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box. This look might seem familiar already since I've done something similar two years ago (oh, how time flies).

I've always like neutral eyeshadow with a pop of blue (or any other vibrant color of eyeliner) on my lower lashline. It's a simple yet playful look that's perfect for a casual day out. Since I was only going to my parents' place to have lunch, I wanted to keep it simple but step it up a notch with the blue eyeliner. And I guess the weather outside also inspired me as it was a nice and sunny day in LA. For some reason, this look reminds me of being out in the beach, basking under the sun. The blue eyeliner might have something to do with that image.

Compared to the first look I created with the same Urban Decay palette, this is look is more wearable for your work place. Just ditch the blue eyeliner.

Speaking of puppyface, here's a video exclusive of the master of puppy faces... another special appearance from Lionel Bean. Oh my gaah, my puppy is soo cute. He's too adorable for words.

It's finally Friday! What are your plans for this weekend? I can't wait for dinner tonight with some lovely blogger babes as I've been waiting for it ever since we were tweeting about it. What a better way to spend Friday night with some new friends, good food, and some makeup talk <3.
