Urban Decay's prep, prime and set: The secret to long-wear makeup
Urban Decay's prep, prime and set: The secret to long-wear makeup

Often, perfecting a makeup look comes down to our product choices, right? From foundations that match our undertones, to mascara for volumised lashes, this is what’s often focused on when we think of nailing a look first time round. Have you considered, however, what needs to happen before simply applying your makeup, to make sure it looks its best, and stays put for longer? If, like us, you haven’t thought that far, Urban Decay fortunately offers a complete set of products perfect for just that! Let’s take a look.


Before applying your makeup, use Urban Decay’s Vitamin-infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray with B6. This formula absorbs oil, balances skin and evens tone—all with a quick hit of vitamins thrown in. These vitamins are particularly good for minimising fine lines and reducing pores, and the formula works all day to reduce surface shine. The product also contains willow bark to help with exfoliation, and powerful antioxidant vitamin E. Use this product in the morning to reawaken your skin before applying makeup or anytime you need a quick boost.

Ideal for women who suffer from oily skin, this oil-free formula contains conditioning ingredients like aloe vera. So, while it’s working hard to keep your skin looking matte and shine-free, it also keeps your skin in great shape. Urban Decay’s De-Slick Complexion Primer also provides pore reduction, mattifying and shine control, all in one primer. Use your fingertips to apply the primer onto your face once you’ve given it a vitamin-infused preparatory spray.



Urban Decay’s Chill Makeup Setting Spray is the final touch you need to perfect your makeup look. It acts as both a cooling and hydrating makeup setting spray that’s spritzed on once all your makeup has been applied. We love this product for its super-hydrating properties that leave your skin with a glow while “chilling” the surface. It’s oil-free, so ideal for anyone to use, and its temperature-control technology means it’ll keep your makeup looking fresh for up to 12 hours.
