Welcome back, Oz and beauty fans! On my last guest post, I brought you a pretty yet strong look created using Urban Decay’s Glinda palette. However, Glinda isn’t the only witch in Oz: The Great and Powerful! Theodora is a young witch, beautiful and naive. In early Oz movies, the Witch of the West is a dark force; in Oz, Theodora wants peace in the land(according to trailers…hmmm…guess we’ll have to head to the movies to find out for sure!).
Urban Decay describes her as “fiery, strong-willed, and spellbindingly beautiful.” The palette they created for her certainly fits the bill! This palette contains six dark, sultry eyeshadows, a black eyeliner, and a fiery red high-gloss lip pencil.
As a brunette with brown eyes, I find that warm, brown shades suit my coloration the best. Red is my favorite color, although I usually wear the shade in clothing rather than on my lips. All in all, the combination of colors in this product are what led me to snap this palette up, even before I bought the Glinda one. Urban Decay makes stellar beauty products and I knew that this would be a palette I’d reach for again and again. This palette is great for everyday looks, but I decided to create a more dramatic look to possibly wear to the Oz premiere on March 8th. Below I’ll take you through the look, step by step; see captions for directions.
I finished my look by adding a shimmering highlighter to my cheekbones and applying the Theodora lip pencil (a warm-leaning cherry red) on my entire lip. Below are before and after shots – I used the before shot from the Glinda post because…well…I generally look the same without makeup, regardless of the clothing I have on. Click to enlarge:
So what look do you think is best for the premiere – a warm, strong “dark” look, or a delicate, spellbinding “good” look? Which witch is more your style overall – Theodora or Glinda? Let us know in the comments!
