UDXBasquiat Masterclass

A while ago I did an overview post on the Urban Decay Summer 2017 Collection which featured their collaboration with the artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Recently I had the great opportunity to attend the masterclass for the release of this collection into Debenhams stores here in Ireland.

Before the masterclass began I got a chance to have a look at all the products up close and take a few swatches of some of them. The collection contains two amazingly pigmented eyeshadow palettes, a blush/highlight/contour palette, three eyeliners and three lipsticks.

The masterclass took place in the Waterford Debenhams store and the makeup artist was the beauty blogger Lisa from the blog CuddlesNContouring. She began the masterclass by showcasing some of the Urban Decay Prep and Prime skincare range in order to remove any makeup that the model had on when she arrived. For the actual makeup look she used the UDXBasquiat Tenant Eyeshadow Palette as the main palette though she did use some shades from the Griot Palette also.

I personally didn’t have a huge interest in the palettes as I already have a lot of palettes in my collection and the colours are very dupable in my opinion. I did however have my eye on the eyeliner in the shade Post Punk which is a very sharp lime yellow shade. This looks absolutely stunning on the waterline with any bright eye makeup look.

Tomorrow I will have an entire blog post up with a full description of the make up she used and the steps she took to achieve the complete makeup look for the masterclass so stay tuned for that. I will share that for the final step of the makeup look however  she did use on the new lip toppers on the lips so I knew I just had to pick up one of them for myself.

The shade that I chose is the shade Fever and this is a stunning crimson cranberry shade with a sharp iridescent glitter running through it. These retail for 18.50 euros a piece. I honestly had an amazing time on the night and the collection is definitely a collectors item, it’s so beautiful.
