We've teamed up with Urban Decay to bring you two of the hottest summer makeup looks. From sunny days to balmy evenings, these versatile looks will take you from day to night and occasion to occasion.

 

Trendy with an Edge

Living coral is the 2019 Pantone colour of the year and makeup artist Danielle Roberts decided to build this entire look around this showstopping shade.

"I used a colour blocking technique and used one shade on the eyes and blew it out towards the brow."

Danielle wanted to create a real trend driven moment for the eyes, and so used the standout shade 'retro' from the new Naked Reloaded palette. A soft pastel coral it pops against most skin tones but works spectacularly on those with blue eyes. For the lip. Danielle went full clash, 'I wanted to clash a feminine and dangerous vibe together so used Vice lipstick in the shade Blackmail'.

 

Feminine Grunge

The ever-popular high low trend inspired this look, that is, the juxtapositing of a strong feature against a more subtle one for a casual and 'undone' look. In this case, Danielle played up a really grungey smokey eye against glass-like skin and an undone lip.

'For this, I wanted to unlock the smokey side of the Naked Reloaded palette by using the deeper glitter shades such as Dreamweaver and Endgame. I then clashed the lip by making it soft and pretty using our best selling shade Backtalk.'
