Look edgy and exquisite with these Urban Decay makeup classics

Choosing any of your favorite Urban Decay Naked palettes is like choosing your favorite child - basically impossible. Each eyeshadow palette in the Naked collection features a spectrum of neutral shades to suit every single mood and sense of style, and when you think about it… that really is the Urban Decay way.

Founded in Southern California in 1996, Urban Decay makeup has been pushing boundaries and setting new standards for beauty over the past two decades. The two co-founders started the company after noticing a “color void” in the luxury makeup departments, with too much pink and not enough edge. They wanted to create a makeup line that let people be exactly who they wanted, and incorporated more color and captivation into the makeup aisles with their vivid selection of beauty products.

Gwen Stefani became one of the earliest celebrity fans of the brand after the co-founders began marketing at music festivals, and even launched the first celebrity Urban Decay makeup collaboration. Many years later, the brand has launched many more Urban Decay palette collaborations, and become one of the biggest names in beauty with their poppin’ purple aesthetic and “edgy yet elegant” beauty products.

But don’t think that it’s only for the color enthusiasts, either - as the Urban Decay Naked palettes are one of the brand’s top-selling items that take neutrals to the next level, showing that edginess is a state of mind and “reinvention over perfection” is a very real thing.

Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner, $21

If the first thing that comes to mind when hearing “heavy metal glitter eyeliner” is a glam rock icon from the 80’s with big hair, you’re not entirely wrong… but hear us out. Urban Decay has always aspired to bring edge to the beauty world, combining classic trends with unique formulas to launch innovative products. And while this eyeliner is specifically designed to give you the rockstar look, it’s still totally acceptable (and encouraged!) to wear for school, work, or everyday activities. Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner is made with superfine, multi-dimensional glitter that you can easily build up to add as much sparkle as you’d like, forming a shimmery liner effect for cat eyes, graphic liner, and anything in between. Pick your favorite of 14 shades, with glam names like Spandex, Distortion, Glam Rock and DISCO DAYDREAM, or layer multiple hues together to bring out your inner rockstar. Glitter liner pairs beautifully with eye effects from the best Urban Decay Naked palettes, and you can turn up the sparkle even further by applying a bit of Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in your brows!

Even if you’re an avid collector of Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, you still need a few singles in your collection. They’re adorable, easy to carry in your purse, and ideal for the monochromatic makeup lover who just wants to look gorgeous in green. Or purple, or blue, or many variations of brown. These eyeshadow singles are velvety smooth, long-lasting, and have rich color payoff that stays put on your lids and won’t produce fallout throughout the day. They’re also ideal for the neutral lover girl who just wants to buy one or two colorful shades for the rare occasions she’s in the mood, or vice versa, instead of the whole eyeshadow palette. Eyeshadow singles by Urban Decay are a travel-sized delight that will definitely be a game-changer on your weekend trips or simple makeup days.

“This is the one I use, it’s very brightening and hydrating. I have dry skin and eczema.” Just how good is the Stay Naked Correcting Concealer? Countless MIRA reviews say that it’s weightless, pore minimizing, and non creasing… while a few even say that it’s ultra-moisturizing and better than Tarte’s legendary Shape Tape Concealer. Gasp. This full-coverage concealer doesn’t just hide dark circles after you’ve pulled a few all-nighters (though it does that too,) it also goes a bit deeper to cover up the effects of hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and other skin imperfections. Each of the 25 vegan shades is designed for nine shade intensities, three mastertones, and five undertones to guarantee that you find your ideal color… and you can use Stay Naked as a cover up, spot treatment, or cream highlight to fall back in love with your under eyes.

Eyeliner is a hot topic within the beauty community - there are liquid, gel, and pencil types of people, and many will defend their stance on the beauty product with a fierce passion. But what if we told you that there was an Urban Decay makeup product with all the smudge power of a pencil, dramatic flair of a liquid, and creamy and smooth texture of a gel? Because there is, and it’s called the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. This waterproof pencil goes on smooth and creamy, and gives you a hot minute (literally) to intentionally smudge or fix errors before drying to a long-lasting finish. Since it’s available in a range of colors and finishes, you get to be as creative as you’d like and easily switch up your liner looks. Simple everyday black liner? Check. Electric green and sparkly for a night out? Check. Both, layered together for an edgy doubled winged liner? Definitely. Eyeliner is a special beauty product that puts power into your hands and allows you to express yourself, and it’s always going to be a wild glide with this Urban Decay makeup.

One look at the Urban Decay makeup collection or Instagram feed will show you that purple is their color. It adorns the eyes of UD models and pops out in the packaging, and you can embrace this vivid hue with the Urban Decay Naked palette in Ultraviolet. With peachy neutrals, subtle lavenders, rich violets, and blacklight purples, these light-reflecting shades are great for both beginners and experts. Even if you’re not used to incorporating more vibrant colors into your eye looks, a subdued wash of pale lavender like Optimized or shimmery taupe like Trippin’ is a great first step towards making it on the Urban Decay Instagram feed. And if you’re a blending expert, the poppin’ purple options are endless. Recreate the grungy purple metallic smokey eye from Carli Bybel, or a holographic halo eye that emphasizes your passion for shimmer and glam. Purple is the Urban Decay way, and you’ll be feeling bright and bold with this eyeshadow palette.

Vice Lipstick, $19

Urban Decay makeup is both exquisite and just a little bit extra, and we love it. You can have the best of both beauty worlds, and the Vice Lipstick proves it. A classic bullet lipstick, this beauty product is available in 30+ shades ranging from pinks and reds to neutrals and browns. You have shades like “1993,” a warm brown matte that represents the mega-90’s lips in the year it’s named for, while deep purple Pandemonium is the symbol of Urban Decay makeup and Crash is a red-orange shade to give your classic red lips a twist. And there’s so much more to explore as you start collecting Vice Lipsticks for all occasions. One of our favorites is Naked, a sweet pink nude that enhances the natural color of your lips and is basically the best universal nude lipstick for everybody. Vice Lipstick is also infused with Vitamins C and E, plus aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils to make your looks feel soft and nourished. Wear it for all day color and hydration, and watch your Urban Decay makeup collection grow with every shade.
