GET NAKED

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 11.04.14 PMAll UD: I’m wearing the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in 5.0, Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Medium, Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder in Medium, Ultra Definition Powder Foundation in Dark for my contour, and the Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in Lovechild. (The gold freckles are from Mr. Kate.)

For me, the second most important element to my beauty routine (after stellar skincare, of course) is my base. My foundation, concealer, powder, highlight… All the things that create the flawless face. Not surprisingly, I’ve searched high and low in search of the best of the best! In the last few months I’ve been on a new routine that leaves my skin feeling exactly how it should: Naked.

One of the most brilliant moves Urban Decay has ever made was developing their Naked Skin collection. For a product line that’s very much known for being bold and edgy, they’ve really demonstrated their versatility in creating skin products that produce a natural and weightless look and feel. The first product I tried that blew me away was the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup: I wasn’t quite prepared for how truly thin the consistency was and how much coverage I got out of it. It feels like basically nothing on my skin, yet all of a sudden my complexion is even and free of flaws. I find this foundation to be medium coverage with a buildable quality to it that still doesn’t compromise its weightlessness. As a first ever, I give this foundation a 10 out of 10. Why the perfect score? The range of colors caters nicely to olive skin, which is rare!

Moving on: The Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. Before I got my hands on this, I was quite obsessed with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, and I was pretty sure that was going to stay my favorite because it was as close to the perfect concealer as I had discovered. The outcome? I haven’t touched my NARS concealer in weeks. The two are neck and neck for the #1 spot, but I just can’t get myself to stop using the Naked Skin concealer! Perfect coverage, lightweight, blendable, and just the right shade. (I use the Medium.) To put it simply, it’s everything I’ve ever looked for in a concealer.

Which brings me to the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder. If you know me, you know I am not a fan of powder. But when I find one I like, I’m all but shouting from every rooftop about it! There’s something revolutionary about this super micro fine powder, as it’s completely different from any other powder I’ve tried. It seems to disappear into my skin as soon as I apply it, leaving it looking filtered. It doesn’t mattify, it just perfects. Often times adding a powder over makeup all of a sudden makes the whole thing look heavy and obviously powdered, even working with a light hand. But this stuff, I have to say, is primo!

There’s plenty more to explore in the Naked Skin collection, these are just my favorites. Check out more of these awesome products here and get naked!!

  • I’m a huge UD fan 🙂 I reviewed some of the new eyeshadows and lipsticks today. I got the foundation too but unfortunately the color didn’t match.

  • Kaylah says:

    I’ve seen Naked foundation before and really wanted to pick it up but had some doubts about it before. Do you recommend this for dry skin? I have dry skin and some foundation no matter the consistency of it, tend to leave me with a cakey finish.

    Thanks!

    I really love NAKED Skin too! I’m with you on the NARS Creamy Concealer, never thought I would find anything I liked as much as it, until I tried NAKED Concealer. I agree about the colour spectrum, I have yellow-olive undertones, and I usually have a hard time finding the right foundation for my squinting, so when I saw the NAKED line at Sephora I was like 😮 look at all the colours!!!

    Love your site! Totally random questions… What software do you use to edit your photos (like your Instagram one with the bar that says “@tenipanosian”, across it. (Is it ipad/iphone friendly? Do you have any books you read when starting to blog or how did you figure it all out? Look forward to hearing back from you!…

  • Rose says:

    Teni, you’ve saved my makeup woes; you helped me finally find foundation and concealer matching my super olive tone. THANK YOU ETERNALLY! That being said…which shades are you in the foundation and concealer? I LOVE the NARS creamy concealer and the Makeup Forever HD foundation. You are my QUEEN. Cheers to you!

  • I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect foundation! I currently use the Mac Studio Fix foundation only because it has good coverage. I struggle with having clear skin but after reading this I might just have to try it out! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂

    Great write up!… What do you think of Miss Adoro make up? http://www.missadoro.com/ , I have tried their lashes and I really like them but I was wondering how the make up is, it looks pretty good…

  • Sarah says:

    Do you use the medium shade in the concealer to match your skin tone or as a highlight?

  • Dayra says:

    Hi Teni! Can u tell us what shade you use in the loose powder? We are similar skin tones and Im not sure what color to order? I don’t know if the medium will be to dark?

  • Noor Khan says:

    Love the UD Naked foundation. I’ve been debating on the concealer and powder for a while now. I’ve also used the BB cream and I think that might be my favorite for the coverage and lightness of the product. I love how creative you are with your makeup posts!
