a match made in heaven: betsey johnson and urban decay!

here are photos from the local d.c. fashion show i did a few weeks ago – pink fashion rocks, a benefit for the susan g. komen foundation featuring betsey johnson.

the look was inspired by the fall 2010 fashion show that had debuted in new york two weeks before, but with a bit of a brighter lip. the original runway look was done by stila and focused on a smoky brown brigitte-bardot-esque eye but i decided to go with more of a gunmetal look.

i used all urban decay products on my girls because…well, we all know how much i love UD! a look backstage:

urban decay hotpants lipstick! sexy, shimmery pink

for this sexy look, i prepped the lid with mushroom cream shadow. after it dried, i placed oil slick shadow in the crease and winged it out with a pencil brush, then patted mushroom shadow in the center of the lid to intensify the color. i used sin shadow as a brow highlight and used a fluffy blending brush to smoke it out. most of the girls brought false lashes with them, and after application i lined with oil slick liquid liner on top, zero 24/7 on the bottom and smudged oil slick shadow on top of each line.

for face, i used urban decay cream to powder foundation – no blush! a swipe of hotpants lipstick and the girls were runway ready!
