I’ll change my nail colour as often as there’s days in the week, but I’m not nearly as adventurous with my cosmetics. Whether it’s a lack of time, confidence or the fear I’ll leave my makeup on when I go to sleep, I tend to keep my beauty regime to a bare-faced minimum. That’s why I was excited to get seriously dolled up for once in a collaboration with MakeUp54 and the beauty maestros at Urban Decay Cosmetics.
Inspired by the glamour associated with 1980s New York – think Jerry Hall, Grace Jones and Debbie Harry – we went for high impact, bold colours and full gloss. Everyday makeup this is not.
Check out our behind-the-scenes video from the shoot below!
Now, I know you don’t want to just admire my makeup, you’ll want to create these looks yourself. That’s why I managed to secure some of the Urban Decay products we used on the day to give away to you!
I’ll be picking the two lucky competition winners a week today: Friday the 11th!
Update: I’m excited to announce the winners of my Urban Decay beauty giveaway are YouTubers Cipher Gayle and Lily Fisher! Congratulations to you both! Please can you send me an email with your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To all those of you who took the trouble to enter, thank you so much and please don’t be disappointed. I’ll be running more competitions like this in future!
Love EM xo
