I’ve seen naked runners before…although I kind of wish I hadn’t, because one of the guys had the word “slut” tattooed on his butt in American Typewriter, and now I’ll never be able to see American Typewriter the same way, but that’s what happens when you run the Bay to Breakers…
This is only marginally related to the new by Urban Decay. 🙂
UD pretty much covers everything here with the exception of your base makeup and brows. There’s something for eyes, lips, cheeks and lashes, and most of the colors are brand new.
This look here actually didn’t take long at all, and I used five of the six shadows. I’d already put on foundation and filled in my brows, but I sprinted through the eyes, cheeks, lips and lashes.
I set the stopwatch on my phone because I wanted to see how long it would take to do a blown-out neutral smokey eye — something I know I wear a lot — and I wanted to use more than one lid shade.
I ended up using five! Then I lined and smudged my lash lines with the included liner, coated my lashes with Perversion, did the bronzer, blush, and because I’m a ho for highlights, I used the 5050 eyeshadow as a highlighter. After that, I finished with gloss (Sesso) and checked the timer.
It said 12 minutes. Eyes, cheeks, lips and lashes in 12 minutes flat.
Twelve minutes for a look I know I’ll wear a lot (I already do), and one big reason for that is the shade selection. Like BECCA’s Ombre Nude Eye Palette, the eyeshadows are pretty similar to each other, especially the four brown workhorse shades (two are mattes and two are shimmers), so it’s easy to transition from one to another.
There was some fallout from the eyeshadows, but that’s to be kind of expected from Urban Decay. I cleaned things up as well as I could but decided to just roll with some of the leftover glitter.
UD has a pretty good palette here, good for travel (so now you can get naked in foreign places, haha), with lots of neutrals, and nothing with too hard of an edge.
