Whether you’re collecting the kids from school, heading to the office or meeting your friends for lunch, a few subtle make-up touches can leave you feeling amazing.
Urban Decay’s make-up is globally coveted by teens and college students because of their bright and bold colours and glittery shades, but did you know they actually have plenty of products perfect for a more natural daytime look?
We spoke to beauty consultant Roisin at the Urban Decay counter in Debenhams on Dublin’s Henry St about the products best suited to our mums.
Which products are best for a natural look?
Definitely the Naked Skin Beauty Balm. This is like a BB Crème but better. It comes in one universal shade (though I think more are expected to be released soon) and gives skin a beautiful natural glow. As it’s a BB crème it’s very lightweight and just enhances the wearer’s natural beauty and it contains light defusing pigments to give the skin a natural sun kissed glow. Can be used as a base for foundation or worn just on its own. And if you have a birthday coming up, one of the Naked eye shadow palettes would be perfect if you want to make your eyes pop without looking over-the-top.
What's the one product every woman should use if she doesn't have time to apply full make-up?
Naked Skin Flush Palette. If you only have 10 minutes to get out the door, this will contour, highlight and illuminate your skin all at once. The 3 colours can be swirled together to give a beautiful radiant glow over the skin (like a beauty powder) or can be applied separately to perk up the skin. With shades that will universally flatter all skin tones and a perfect size to pop into a bag, it’s perfect when you’re really short on time but want to give your skin a bit of a glow. Just a bit of mascara and a dab of concealer and it’s all you need.  
Which products would be suitable for skin that isn’t as perfect as an 18-year-old’s?
Naked Skin Liquid Makeup is perfect for any age really. It has an ultra lightweight feel on the skin, is light reflecting and leaves the skin looking youthful and dewy. It has buildable medium coverage that won’t sit in any fine lines or wrinkles and uses “optical blur technology” to refine the look of skin and make it look airbrushed. It’s packed full of anti- aging peptides but is oil free, and contains green tea extract antioxidants. It also smells really nice!
