Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics + Liquid Moondust Makeup Tutorial

Hello beauty babes and welcome! Today I am back with a new "get the look" tutorial that I know many of you have been waiting for. If you happened to check out my post on all the NEW Urban Decay Holiday Collection - as well as my post on the LE Vintage Vice Lipstick Collection, then you are already familiar with this look. And  if you have not seen those posts (with videos), I encourage you to click the links above to head on over to check the out!! ;) Anyways, I had many requests for a tutorial on this look and FINALLY its here!! ♥
Of course this look was created using several of the new UD goodies I got! I wanted you all to be able to see them in action and in use to better help you decide if you would like to purchase. As well as to give you some inspiration if you have already purchased some of these items. ♥

I did also decide to make this a bit of a 90's grunge look, since I was inspired by the Vintage Lipsticks. However, I do think this look is more of a modern grunge look, but the choker and earrings do help with the 90's theme. ;) What do you think?
Products used:
♥Too Faced Shadow insurance
♥Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics shadows: Commando, Instinct, Lethal, Nude & Blow!
♥Urban Decay Liquid Moondust in Recharged
♥Urban Decay Falsies in Entrapment
♥Urban Decay Naked Illuminating Trio shade 'Oasis'
♥Urban Decay Vintage Vice Lipstick in 'Bruise'

I'd like to note that the new UD lashes are a nice improvement. I had tried several of their older lashes and was not a fan. But these ones have a nice, thinner more flexible band that is a lot easier to work with! Yay!


Ok loves, if you want to see how you can recreate this look, be sure to watch the video below! I have been working on the timing of my tutorials and am proud to say I kept this video under 5 minutes AND I show you how to create the eye makeup as well as demo the highlight and lipstick! ♥ I do hope you enjoy! And if you feel inspired by this look to re-create it or something similar, please do share! Tag me on facebook, twitter or IG and also use the hashtag #AgapeLoveGirlLooks ♥

It Cosmetics Color-Infused Skincare | Exclusively at Sephora

*affiliate links*
Have you heard the NEWS? It Cosmetics has launched at Sephora!! Whether you are already a die hard fan of IT or have been dying to try the brand - now its easier than ever to get your hands on their products via Sephora stores nationwide as well as Sephora.com

♥ Get 4% cash back with Ebates when you shop at Sephora!

Not only can you find their amazing best sellers, but IT Cosmetics has also launched their Color-Infused Skincare line featuring new "Bye Bye" products that are exclusive to Sephora.
This line includes:

I was fortunate to receive this box of goodies c/o It Cosmetics to try out! So I have filmed an overview and demo of all of these products! Be sure to check out that video at the end of this post, so you can learn more about each product as well as see them in action. ♥
One of the reasons I LOVE It Cosmetics products is because they contain amazing skin loving and benefiting ingredients! Did you know that IT Cosmetics was developed with leading plastic surgeons to create clinically proven, problem-solving, anti-aging makeup and skin care products!? Being that I am a skincare junkie, this is music to my ears. Especially now that I am in my 30's and want to keep my skin looking and feeling as youthful as possible for as long as possible!! 

Here is a look as a couple of my favorites from this line:
The lovely Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment!! Thi is an innovative, lip-reviving, color-infused balm that provides hydration and a naturally flushed lip color. Ingredients include:
-Vitality Lip Flush Technology™: Reacts with the warmth of your lips to create a beautiful pop of color.
-Essential Butters and Oils: Impart and help the skin retain moisture.
-Hyaluronic Filling Spheres: Attract water into the skin for the appearance of smooth, hydrated, volumized lips.
-Antioxidants: Protect against free-radical damage, which causes skin inflammation and aging.

I'm also a lip balm junkie, and this one has been by my side since the day I got it! I apply it several times a day and it leaves my lips soft, smooth, hydrated and with a perfect natural pink flush of color. Also, I must say, I adore the beautiful and sturdy packaging. The lid even has a magnetic closure and clicks close. ♥
Another stand out product to me is the Anti-Aging Armour Super Smart Skin-Perfecting Beauty Fluid SPF 50+. This is game-changing, multitasking beauty fluid with SPF 50+ that protects, hydrates, and evens the look of skintone. Its formulated with  universal color-correcting pigments even the appearance of all skin tones!

When I first saw this I thought it was simply a sunscreen, but I was surprised to find that it had color to it! Whats nice is that it is a very fluid product so it feels very light weight and natural on the skin! yet the coverage it has is incredible! I was wow'd by how it well it concealed my dark circles and redness. Be sure to watch my video to see for yourself! ♥ And apparently its universal to match all skin tones. Thats incredible innovative and I am curious to see how it actually looks on darker and lighter skin tones than mine. I personally thought it looked a touch light for my skin... But overall was a nice match once I finished applying the rest of my makeup. 
Another stand out product was the Bye Bye Lines Serum Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle-Smoothing Miracle Concentrate!! This has already become my new favorite and go to serum to use at night as well as before makeup application. It absorbs so nicely and leaves my skin feeling so smooth!! An it includes a whole host of amazing ingredients and vitamins that are meant to improve, repair and hydrate your skin. 

♥ Other honorable mentions would be the eye cream - its SO thick and luxurious. And the bye bye pores primer! You will see a demo in the video below a before and after using this primer! What a difference it makes!! 

What products are you looking forward to trying or buying? If you got your hands on any of these products yet, I would LOVE to know your thoughts too. Be sure to leave a comment and tell me all about it. Also if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
