In celebrating the launch of Urban Decay’s Naked Reloaded palette, Linda tells all on why they’re her favourite brand, her must-have products and how you can copy her everyday lipstick!
What’s your favourite new product and why?
I discovered when I was around 17. I remember seeing a naked pallet online and from that moment they was ALL I wanted in life. They didn’t sell it in my country back then and I remember being on a city trip with my friend in Madrid and I dragged her across the whole city to get that Urban Decay Naked Palette 2; I’ve used it ever since – the very first palette I owned!
When did you discover Urban Decay and what makes it stand out to you as a makeup brand?
The reason why I love it is because it’s all about being yourself. The brand is all about experimenting and having FUN… Without rules! Urban decay never judges 😊
What's the one product you can't live without?
One product I can live without is the Urban Decay All-Nighter concealer. As I struggle with acne scars, this is the only product that will do the trick for me. I use it everyday - on glam days AND no makeup days.
Best multi-purpose product?
Probably the All-Nighter setting spray. Not only do I use it to set my makeup but also to refresh, to apply glitter eye-shadow and my highlighter. I even use it to set it in combination with the Brow Setter gel!
Traveling and makeup is something I always found very hard but I finally understand the importance of travel-sizes. I have everything travel size and if I don’t, I depot it into travel size pots. Make sure you bring the things you will use to top up, in my case that’s lip liner and lipstick, mascara, powder and bronzer. Plus, with the Naked Reloaded palette you got all the colours you need!
How do you ensure you get that glow daily even in the colder months?
The key for me is to prep prep prep! Treat yourself to sheet mask in the evening and always prep the skin before makeup. Use a rich moisturiser and make sure to let that sink in properly before applying makeup. I will also switch up my foundation from the Urban Decay All Nighter to the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation. Because, in combination with a good moisturised base, it gives me the perfect glow.
