As soon as you think you’ve seen it all from Urban Decay with all their exciting launches last year, they come and smack you with a colour bomb that is sure to make even the least creative person dive into their rainbow of eye shadows with their temptation of colour and amazing finishes.

While this palette may seem intimidating to those that are afraid to use some colour, I created 3 looks to show you the diversity of the palette. A day look; a fun look as well as a night look.

UD day

Day look:

Goldmine – inner corners of the eyelid

Warning – blended over whole eyelid

Bump – highlight under brow bone

Warning – lower lash liner

UD fun

Fun Look: 

Mean – inner corners of the eye

Blindsided – blended over eyelid

Bump – highlight under brow bone

Gossip – lower lash liner

UD night

Night Look: 

Jones – inner corner of the eyelid

Midnight Blaze – blended over whole eyelid

Platonic – outer corner of eyelid

Bump – Highlight under brow bone

Delirious – Lower Lash liner

I think Midnight Blaze might be my favourite from this palette, so easy to blend for a smokey look!
