Makeup Monday: Neon Deluxe






I never sleep in my makeup, except last night. I fell asleep shortly after completing these pictures (at a horrible hour of almost 5 AM) and woke up this morning, with my eye makeup completely intact. The rest of me was a hot mess, but my eyes looked great.

While I don't recommend sleeping in your makeup (I'm looking at you, Kim), I do think this proved how long Urban Decay's makeup lasts - plus, the quality is great. The primer potion keeps shadows from creasing, their shadows are buttery smooth and vibrant, and the liners stay put.

Since these colors are practically neon, I decided to keep them close to the lid (stopping at the crease) and paired them with a muted gloss. Want to know how to recreate this look? Keep reading after the jump for step by step instructions and a full product list. 
 




For the eyes: Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Peace, Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Graffiti, Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Scratch, Urban Decay Primer Potion (professional size), Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil from the travel size set, Urban Decay Lush Lash.


bottom to top: Urban Decay blending brush, crease brush, shadow brush (full instructional brush post coming next Monday!)


Cheeks and lips: Urban Decay blush brush, Smashbox Blush Rush in Chiffon, Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Andromeda
(all Urban Decay products were supplied by the company)

  22. I love all the color! And I agree with the other commenter; you should do a post on brush maintenance! :D

  23. Something I've noticed is that you never seem to use (or just never show) eyelash curlers. What's your opinion on them?

    Also, I have the primer and Peace and I am CRAZY about them!

  38. I really love this look. And yes i do love urban decay makeup and their primer, recently i tried korres. both makes the colors vibrant, but urban decay makes it last longer.

  42. Hi Keiko,

    This colour is AMAZING but I think only you could pull it off. You look so fab in it!

    Just a question - do you notice a difference between using your fingers to apply the shadow and using a brush? Or does either work equally well for you? Thanks again for sharing, I'm looking forward to your brush post next week!
