All UD: I’m wearing the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in 5.0, Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Medium, Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder in Medium, Ultra Definition Powder Foundation in Dark for my contour, and the Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in Lovechild. (The gold freckles are from Mr. Kate.)
For me, the second most important element to my beauty routine (after stellar skincare, of course) is my base. My foundation, concealer, powder, highlight… All the things that create the flawless face. Not surprisingly, I’ve searched high and low in search of the best of the best! In the last few months I’ve been on a new routine that leaves my skin feeling exactly how it should: Naked.
One of the most brilliant moves Urban Decay has ever made was developing their Naked Skin collection. For a product line that’s very much known for being bold and edgy, they’ve really demonstrated their versatility in creating skin products that produce a natural and weightless look and feel. The first product I tried that blew me away was the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup: I wasn’t quite prepared for how truly thin the consistency was and how much coverage I got out of it. It feels like basically nothing on my skin, yet all of a sudden my complexion is even and free of flaws. I find this foundation to be medium coverage with a buildable quality to it that still doesn’t compromise its weightlessness. As a first ever, I give this foundation a 10 out of 10. Why the perfect score? The range of colors caters nicely to olive skin, which is rare!
Moving on: The Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. Before I got my hands on this, I was quite obsessed with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, and I was pretty sure that was going to stay my favorite because it was as close to the perfect concealer as I had discovered. The outcome? I haven’t touched my NARS concealer in weeks. The two are neck and neck for the #1 spot, but I just can’t get myself to stop using the Naked Skin concealer! Perfect coverage, lightweight, blendable, and just the right shade. (I use the Medium.) To put it simply, it’s everything I’ve ever looked for in a concealer.
Which brings me to the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder. If you know me, you know I am not a fan of powder. But when I find one I like, I’m all but shouting from every rooftop about it! There’s something revolutionary about this super micro fine powder, as it’s completely different from any other powder I’ve tried. It seems to disappear into my skin as soon as I apply it, leaving it looking filtered. It doesn’t mattify, it just perfects. Often times adding a powder over makeup all of a sudden makes the whole thing look heavy and obviously powdered, even working with a light hand. But this stuff, I have to say, is primo!
There’s plenty more to explore in the Naked Skin collection, these are just my favorites. Check out more of these awesome products here and get naked!!
