Urban Decay Ammo Palette Tutorial - Blue and Violet Eye

Here’s one Summery look with cool-toned pastels. If you like the look of colored eyeliner pencils but aren’t sure how to wear it, or worry about it taking definition away from the lash line (it can make your lashes disappear), here’s the way to do it.

Always use a black liquid liner to set a base line at the lashes. 

THEN go on top of it with a colored pencil of your choice, without completely covering the black. Leaving a tiny rim of black near the lashes will help you keep that dark definition so you get the best of both worlds.

I used 3 shades in the Urban Decay Ammo palette. A pale purple (Grifter), a turquoise blue (Shattered), and a magenta violet (Last Call). It’s an almost My Little Pony type color-scheme. I used Sephora’s Smartliner in black, and Shu Uemura’s Drawing Pencil in ME Pink 12. 

For the cheeks, I used a pink Japanese cream blush by Heavy Rotation Creamy Cheeks 02, and I varied the look with 2 lip colors. A soft pearl pink (VDL 504 Jude) and a magenta fuchsia (Bourjois Rouge Edition 07).

Paying Tribute to Madiba on Mandela Day

To see more tributes to activist and former South African president Nelson Mandela, explore the #MandelaDay and #Madiba hashtags.

Nelson Mandela was only 33 years old when a speech he gave incited a protest in Durban and first landed him in jail. Over the next 10 years, Mandela would be arrested three more times for his work fighting South Africa’s oppressive apartheid regime until a 1962 conviction for sedition sent him to prison for the next 27 years.

“I was hoping to capture some sense of the hardships he suffered,” retired Johannesburg math lecturer Vivien Budge (@vivbudge) says of the young Mandela portrait she painted, “the anger he must have felt at the injustices he witnessed and the relentless tenacity, determination and courage with which he fought for his beliefs.”

After his release in 1990, Mandela helped bring an end to apartheid in South Africa and became the country’s first black democratically elected President. Mandela, who died last December but would have been 96 today, continues to inspire South Africans and others around the world to this day.
