[BEAUTY]: Urban Decay Afterdark Palette

Created with the intention of adding that wow element to your after dark make up looks, the Afterdark Palette from Urban Decay boasts 10 beautifully pigmented shades. 7 of them are brand new and 3 are cult favourites!

Rich, velvety and blendable – there are so many looks you can create with this palette. Plus it’s packaged in this beautiful iridescent purple metallic case that comes with a dual ended brush.

Below you can find out which shades are my favourites plus see what looks I created with this palette.



When it comes to the shades of this palette, the top row is warm-toned and easier to use for an everyday look while the bottom row is more cool-toned and brings out more of a creative side when doing your makeup.

I found that Scene wasn’t as pigmented as I had hoped so I use it as more of a base to build the colours over. The colours are bold but totally wearable. Backfire & Off-Duty are definitely the shades I reach for first.



Below I wanted to show you guys how you could create not only a look for an evening out but also one that could be worn during the day.. a Before Dark and After Dark look.
