Beauty Review: Urban Decay counter at Debenhams

I’m a big fan of the natural daytime look, but as it’s coming into summer (and festival season is just around the corner!) it’s time to put the neutrals on hold and embrace colour and chaos.

I’ve been looking for the perfect summer eye shadow palette for a while and it’s really no surprise that I found it when I went for a make-up consultation at the Urban Decay counter in Debenhams on Dublin’s Henry Street.

Urban Decay is famous for its eye shadows; in fact, I doubt there’s a make-up lover out there who doesn’t own one of their incredible Naked palettes.

Urban Decay’s Electric palette may seem a little intimidating at first, but trust me, as soon as you see and feel how these shadows look on the skin, you’ll fall as head over heels as I did.

There are 10 shades, 2 previously released and 8 brand new, all using their velvety smooth, highly pigmented formula.

My lovely consultant Roisin walked me through the palette and demonstrated just how versatile these shades are and how even the smallest amount can make a big statement. Adding a pop of purple (Urban) or blue (Chaos) along a cat-eye flick or adding a splash of colour to the inner corner can give you the most gorgeous look!

This really is a must-have for summer, as is UO’s new line of beautiful skin products, Naked Skin Liquid Makeup, which are available in a fantastic range of shades and so lightweight it feels like you’ve nothing on your skin. A combination of these products and you’ll be set for summer and beyond. You can see how convincing my consultant was, right?

Oh and it’s not just me who gets to be pampered – the Urban Decay team at Debenhams Henry Street is offering FREE mini- makeovers exclusively to SHEmazing readers! Just call  to book your appointment and decide which area you want to focus on ( eyes or complexion) – simple!
