I GIVE YOU CHALLENGE 2: 5 days/1 palette
LEX vs. UD's Ammo Palette
|(L to R: Smog, MW, D&G #10, UD Underground, MAC PP Groundwork)|
MAC Paint Pot - Groundwork (base from lashline to under brow)
Dolce & Gabbana eyeliner - #10 (top lashline only)
UD 24/7 - Underground (bottom waterline)
For this quick eye look MAC's Groundwork (mid-tone neutral taupe) was used as a base - smog was then patted on top of that to my crease. Maui Wowie was applied to the inner corner of lid to middle of iris of eye. I took a fluffy blending brush and smoothed out any harsh lines. I really don't use any of the lighter shades as a highlighter because it's too frosty/glittery for my taste so I used the neutral Groundwork paint pot as a shadow base and highlighter. D&G #10 (drk coffee brown) pencil lined the lop lashline and the bottom lashline/waterline I used UD's 24/7 Underground (metallic taupe) and smudged with the MAC #219 pencil brush.

I have traveled with palette in the past without any other shadows...maybe just an accompanying paint pot so I know I can get through this challenge. This is one of my favorite palettes and this was the one item that introduced me to the Urban Decay line. Also these challenges are good for me - it forces me to dig out gems that are hiding in the bottom of my makeup stash!
