Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette – Neutrals and Aqua

I haven’t been giving the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette enough love since I first picked it up last month. It really is a great palette, and the shadows are easy to work with – smooth and blendable.  I almost reached for the Urban Decay Naked palette today because I was in the mood for a shimmery neutral look, but I’m glad I picked up the anniversary palette instead, so I could play around with that fantastic pop of aqua under the eyes.

I added some false lashes today just for the heck of it. I actually don’t own a full set of lashes, and just have this pack of individual lashes by Ardell. I added 3 or 4 longer lashes (each single “lash” is actually a small clump of lashes) to the outer corner of each eye. As you can tell in a couple of the pictures, I didn’t wait long enough for the Duo lash adhesive to dry clear before taking the pictures!

On the eyes:

  • UD Flow swept over lid from lashes to crease, on inner 3/4
  • UD MIA blended into and above crease
  • Mix of Ace and Midnight Rodeo blended from outer 1/3 of lid and into crease
  • Midnight 15 swept across lid from lashes to crease
  • Deep End applied under lower lashes
  • Blackout on lower waterline
  • Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof liner in Vamp along upper lashline
  • 2 coats Make Up For Ever smoky lash mascara


On the lips:

  • Stila Coconut Crush lip stain
  • BE Smile lipgloss

On the face:

  • Retro liner shadow to fill in brows slightly
  • Cho Bo Yang bb cream in Light Beige
  • Sephora brand mineral loose powder (I absolutely do not recommend this product. It became very cakey.)
  • Smashbox Blush Rush in Surge
  • Original mineral veil

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
