Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box Look #1: YDK and Flipside

I've finally cracked my Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box the other day after months of owning it and keeping it in its pristine packaging. I have this habit sometimes of having my makeup in its original packaging and just looking at it like that. Yes, that defeats the whole purpose of the eyeshadow, but sometimes I just don't want a brush dent on it.

Here's the very first look that I did as I 'bless' my eyeshadow. I used two out of the ten eyeshadows in the palette.

What I Used:
  • MAKE UP FOR EVER Duo Mat Powder Foundation
  • MAC True Romantic Beauty Powder Blush
  • Kiehl's Lip Balm with SPF 15
  • Paul & Joe lipgloss

  1. Prime your lids with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and apply a cream colored base all over the lid (MAC Soft Ochre)
  2. Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow YDK eyeshadow on your inner half of your eyelid using a shading brush. 
  3. Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow Flipside eyeshadow on your outer V using a shader brush and bring up the color to the crease with a blending brush. Blend any harsh lines.
  4. Apply the highlight color on your browbone (MAC Shroom eyeshadow).
  5. Line your eyes with a brown gel cream liner (Physicians Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Cream Liner in Brown), curl lashes, and apply mascara.
  6. Using a blush brush, sweep a pink blush (MAC True Romantic Beauty Powder) on the apples of your cheeks.
  7. Apply a nude or clear gloss.

I'll be featuring a look using the palette maybe once a week. I'm doing this experimenting thing where I actually use it multiple times and create multiple looks by using majority of the eye shadows in the palette. The possibilities are endless! We'll see how much I can exhaust out of it.
