Today I want to show off the latest beauty joy to hit little ol' Cardiff - Urban Decay has come to John Lewis!
I'm a huge UD fan, their Naked palettes are obviously such a staple product and love their brand ethics too.
I had a late afternoon appointment with the counter manager Zandra (who is just the loveliest and coolest person ever!) on a Saturday which I know having worked in retail is no fun for anyone but she made me feel SO welcome and took every inch of care and pride into creating a look for me.
First up we used a miracle product - the B6 Vitamin Infused Complextion Prep Spray. I actually left buying one of these and use it every day (I'll do a seperate review for it). It is brilliant at instantly reducing redness and literally infuses your skin with vitamins, plus you an use it any time of day - make-up or no make-up!
For my face we used the Naked Skin Liquid Makeup in #3 which I thought would be too dark but on the skin it was a perfect match. Urban Decay are great at providing options for every skin shade.
For my blush we used Naked Flushed in 'Native' - this is a 3-in-1 kinda blush that gives you subtle colour for a cute contour.
On my eyes I got to try out the new Smokey palette which I now need to own! Smokey gives you the option to be as subtle and shimmery as you want or as bold as you feel. There are so many lights in there to create such a gentle look which I really loved.
The eyeliner used was the 24/7 Glide On pencil in the colour 'Perversion' (HUGE fan of the Urban Decay names aswell!) and for my lips I got to test out the new matte Revolution lipstick in After Dark.
Here is my final look:
I loved it! I cannot do a smokey eye for the life of me so to be shown how to do it so subtly and to be able to wear a cute lipstick too without over-doing it was a breath of fresh air!
Topping it off with the DREAM product the 'All Nighter' setting spray, my makeup managed to last me through partying with friends until the early hours!
Huge thankyou to Zandra who was fabulous, welcoming and so much fun to spend an hour with!
