Makeup of the Day – Purples by Urban Decay 

We’ve been somewhat absent at A Bad Homance for the last couple of weeks; Kristin is moving and I have been sick!  I’m on the mend and wanted to share today’s look as I get back in the swing of things over here.  Today’s look is very Urban Decay heavy, as I’m really feeling this brand lately! 

Full makeup breakdown below!

Eyes closed 


FACE:  For the face, I’m still mixing MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW10 with NYX Foundation Mixer in White.  At some point, I’m gonna find that holy grail foundation, but I haven’t yet.  I used NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly under the eyes and around the nose and topped off the face with Guerlain Meteorites in Clair so the complexion wouldn’t be too flat.  Now the UD comes in – Bittersweet blush is a beautiful purple with fuscia undertones that can be sheered out to where even I can wear it!  I topped the cheeks with Urban Decay Aura highlighter, a frosty pink that gives a very impressive glow.  I also used this on the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow.  Too bad my camera never picks up on that! 


I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which I had forgotten how much I love!  I used MAC Vanilla eyeshadow as my highlight as per usual (only for the last 15 years) and the rest of the shades are from Urban Decay!  From the Spectrum palette, I used Flashback and Omen shadows and brought in the Tonic eyeshadow single to add even more of a duochrome edge to the look.  I topped this off with Physicians Formula Eye Booster Pen liquid liner and Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara in the black water resistant version.


To line the lips, I used NYX Purple Rain, though I’m looking forward to seeing the purple liners UD is coming out with.  I used the UD Alice Through The Looking Glass collection lipstick in Mad Hatter for that perfect metallic purple lip.  I recommend grabbing this one, since it will not be available in the Vice line and it’s limited edition – this lipstick is badass!

Don’t forget, the Vice lipsticks launch June 5! 

What’s your favorite product from Urban Decay?  I think mine will always be the eyeshadows.

  1. I like the look– & that blush is awesome.

    UD first came out when I was a nanny by day (lip balm & natural look makeup) and at night, I wore black or red lips only(old-school punk). I thought (gasp!) that the brand was sorta pretentious– had no idea they came from good Goth-loving visionaries. So I’ve never tried their products until recently. Loving the new Vice line of lippies… Pandemonium (mega matte finish in a deep & bright purple) seems like one you’d enjoy. A neat little 24-dot sample pack from Sephora has me flipping over all the colors, so the UD lipsticks are, for now, my fave of theirs.

    I hear you about the foundation– I’m liking the tone of Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau, which has some paler shades. But it’s all about the undertones, isn’t it? BM’s Tinted Rescue Gel Cream is my current daily, though, in Opal. Very sheer but buildable.

    Peace of the pale be with you, Rachel–
