Duochromatic Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

If you saw the haul video I posted recently to my YouTube channel, then you've already seen me rock this gorgeous duochrome eyeshadow look. I decided to pick up the Sephora Favorites Superstars Kit during the VIB sale earlier this month, and one of the first things I had to play with was the Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge. It's one of the most unique eyeshadows I've ever gotten my hands on, with a green to purple duochromatic finish, and it is unbelievably gorgeous! It also gave me a little bit of inspiration to create another makeup tutorial. I thought it might be fun to try out some of the other products from the kit while I was at it, so I've also included a few little first impressions for you as well. So grab your cup of tea, snuggle up, and get ready to indulge in some makeup-y goodness!
