Danielle Roberts After Hours Masterclass

I'm only about 2 weeks late with this post! Better late than never, I suppose.
Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of being invited to a Masterclass that Urban Decay were hosting in their Debenhams, Mahon Point store. 
If your Makeup obsessed, Urban Decay obsessed and If you don't follow Danielle on Instagram, then you need to NOW. She's also well known in the YouTube world. I got to meet her before the masterclass began and chat away with her, and oh my god, she was so down to earth and just so nice. 
She did a look on the beautiful Claire, that Urban Decay featured on their promotional material that promoted their new Summer 2016 Collection.

Each step she done, she told us exactly what she was doing, why she was doing it and how she was doing it.
She began with prepping the skin with the Urban Decay b6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray. It reduces redness, minimises pores and absorbs oil. It will hydrate, prep and soften the skin before your makeup. Its enriched with Vitamins and Minerals. I don't own this but I think I need to invest in it.
Its Paraben and sulphate free!

The next product she used on Claire's skin was their brand new complexion range, Naked Skin One and Done Tinted Moisturiser. It does exactly what it says on the tube - one step and your done.
This can be used as your moisturiser, SPF, and your complexion. It has a gorgeous sheer finish foundation finish. For me, there would not be enough coverage if I was heading somewhere as I don't have amazing skin, but this will be amazing in the summer or on holidays when you want that glow to your skin without having a full coverage. Pop in to your nearest counter to get your perfect shade!

She used some of the infamous Naked Skin Weightless Concealers. Urban Decay have released these in 3 new shades, which are perfect for heavier contouring and perfect for summer as our skin will be changing its colour as the weather gets warmer.

On the brows she used a pencil, powder and a gel. This creates texture but also a super natural look. She did it in that order. Pencil the outline, then fill in with the powder and then put on the gel over it to tame the brows. She recommended us to use a concealer around the brows to get even more defined shape and defined look.

She next when on to use the new highlighters and bronzers.
The highlighters - Aura, Sin and Fireball, are to die for. She gave us a little tip to spray your brush with some of the All Nighter Spray before dapping into the powder, now obviously don't drown your brush in it, it will enhance the highlight and it will also hold the highlight all night.

You can do the same for the bronzers - Sun kissed and Bronzed. Bronzed was my favourite. They had such creamy textures but they were powder. Danielle didn't overdo it with the contour or as she called it, Sculpting. She just sculpted the face with the bronzer to create definition and add extra sun kissed glow to the skin. 

She went on to the eyes and used the Vice 4 Palette which is soon to be discontinued also.
She used the eye primer on the lids first.
On the brow bone she used the lightest colour. In the crease of the eye, "Bitter" was used. She blended this really softly. Then she came in with "Flame" all over the lid. As a liner she used "Amiss", a really vibrant but fab blue. She went under the lash line with "Bitter" again.

She used the Perversion Mascara Primer before the mascara, and the description she sued to describe it was amazing. Danielle said it was "expanding foam for the lashes". She then applied the infamous Perversion mascara, which I love and you can find a review on it here.

To finish off the look she used the 24/7 lip liner in the shade "Liar" and as a lipstick she used the Gwen Stefani lipstick in "Ex Girlfriend". Unfortunately these are limited edition but some counters might still have them. The lips were finished off with the Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip-gloss in "Beso".
