Nothing adds sophistication, class, and a hint of sexy better than a neutral cut crease eye and red lip. Lauren Shurney, better known on YouTube as Queen of Blending of Pasadena, California, shows us all how to accomplish this dramatic look.

Lauren was a stay at home mom when she decided to start a career in make up art in 2005. After participating in many online contests, she was dubbed the Queen of Blending. Her passion for making her clients feel beautiful through “colorful and wearable art” has gained her over 260,000 subscribers on YouTube.

In the featured video, Lauren uses the Urban Decay Theodora Palette, inspired by Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful which is in theatres now. This palette can be purchased at for $49.

Check out the video and try this amazing look for yourself. Let us know how you like the new palette in the comments section below.
