Urban Decay Afterdark Palette Tutorial

Today I’m sharing my Urban Decay Afterdark Palette Tutorial with you. This is such a fun palette and I feel like I never see anyone mention it. The Afterdark palette also has some of the best packaging that Urban Decay has ever created, hands down.

PR + purchased by me.

Urban Decay Afterdark Palette Tutorial

  1. After applying UD Freebase eyeshadow primer, use a fluffy brush to diffuse Urban Decay Laced into the crease and browbone.
  2. Use a Sigma E25 brush to build up Urban Decay Fringe at the inner and outer lid, leaving the middle bare. Apply Urban Decay Electric pencil to the lower lid, then blend Fringe on top of that. With whatever is left over on the brush, softly connect Fringe in the crease.
  3. Apply Urban Decay Sinful to the center of the lid.
  4. Layer Kat Von D Emerald on top of Sinful, blending with the edges of Fringe.
  5. Deepen the outer corner of the lid and outer lower lid with Urban Decay Paralyzed.
  6. Apply false lashes, line the upper lash line with Kat Von D Trooper and the lower waterline with Marc Jacobs Black liner.
  7. Use a skintone matte eyeshadow to blend out the edges of Laced under the brow. I used Kat Von D L42.
  8. Highlight with Sugarpill Ghosted at the inner corner and under the outer half of the brows.

You could use some of the colors from the Urban Decay Electric Palette or the Urban Decay Tenant Palette to create a similar look. I haven’t played with teal in a while, so I felt like I needed to try to create a look like this. I’ve done so many grey eyeshadow looks lately!

I’m currently without eyelash extensions so that’s why I’m using false lashes. While you can see my natural lashes when I’m looking down in the tutorial photos, once I try to curl them and put mascara on, they just don’t show up. They make me a little sad.

I tried out a new foundation – the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Foundation in Fair. It dries down to a matte finish. I decided to try the color without adding any white to it and it’s decidedly darker than my neck and chest. It’s also very yellow toned. I like the finish and it didn’t emphasize any dryness, I  just wish it was a better color match.
