Glam Night Makeup Breakdown With The Urban Decay Backtalk Palette
The products featured in Glam Night Makeup Breakdown were purchased by me or provided for editorial consideration. All opinions are 100% my own.
As a lady who’s most often found in comfortable compression capris and a pair of sneakers, any and every opportunity to get glam for a night out is entirely welcomed and appreciated. I recently had such a chance and you bet I was so happy to pull out all of my favorite makeup tricks along with my beloved Urban Decay Backtalk Palette.
As you can see in this photo, my sneakers are never far from me! I have to admit that by the end of the night I did wish my sneakers were nearby, because my fabulous gold shoes were being rebellious! The good news is that they’ve been thoroughly broken in for the next occasion that comes up. And my dress, you ask? I’ll admit it was a $25 find from Target a couple of years ago that totally worked out!
Before I get started breaking down exactly what I used to achieve my makeup look, I have to give a round of applause to three stellar products that deserve the MVP award. The first two have to do with my hair and involve Aveda Texture Tonic and my Bedhead Curlipops Diffuser.
For whatever reason, the water quality in the gym where I always wash my hair leads to severe droopiness. To give my curls the life they deserved for this event I spritzed them with the Texture Tonic, which contains a mixture of both sugar and salt. A brief drying with a diffuser and my curls had both sass and curl.
The other product that deserves praise is Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix makeup spray, which helped keep my makeup last for hours. I didn’t have as much time to get ready, and in the midst of my rush I neglected to apply a foundation primer. Not to worry because the spray was fantastic.
The other products I used to create this look include the following:
