Last week, I was so excited to play in the new makeup I got in the mail. Sometimes, brands will send you things you're not really into or maybe just even a little interested to learn about. But when Urban Decay sent over their new(ish) Gwen Stefani palette, I was so excited.

My best friend - who's an amazing makeup artist - was also stoked to play with the palette. She immediately told me, "we're putting color on you!" I typically stay pretty neutral when it comes to my eyes - if I'm being honest I just now got good at doing my eyeshadow - so incorporating color has been something I intentionally avoided. So we created a party look (sorta in celebration of my 6th blogiversary) and used blue eyeshadow (eek!) but I'm so pleased with the outcome.

We used "Danger" and a little bit of "Blackout" from the palette and topped them with Ardell Demi Wispies. Because we were adventurous with the eyes, we kept the lips neutral.
