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.
