If, like me, you're a fan of the skinimalism trend that's been in the news so much in recent years and continues to gain traction, you prefer makeup to enhance the beauty of your complexion for a natural aesthetic but better. As a single working mom, I also opt for a makeup routine that takes five minutes, while making a big impact on my overall appearance. My favorite trick, a tip from a makeup artist years ago, is to finger apply a shimmery shadow to the inner corners of your eyes. It takes two seconds and instantly opens up and highlights your peepers.
I've tried dozens of shimmery shadows over the years - my preferred is Urban Decay's 24/7 Moondust Eyeshadow in Moonstone, which TikTok rediscovered and went crazy over last month, causing this micro-fine glitter formula to sell out. The long-lasting performance shadow is finally restocked, so tell the wise: pick it up now, before it sells out again.
Where to buy Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow?
Its supercharged formula lasts up to 16 hours, staying in place on your lids without creasing or fading. Fans of this glitter blend it with a brush all over the lid or use it under the brow for a hassle-free highlight. I love wearing it alone, but it can also be used as an eyeshadow, to add dimension to your eyes with a slight lift. As an eyeshadow, it can brighten up any matte formula with a glittery effect. The ingredients also include caffeine, which can gently deflate the skin delicate eyelids. When it comes to opening the eyes, the inclusion of caffeine is crucial to making it a true performance eye shadow.
As far as skin feel goes, Moondust is sheer and lightweight. "It's so light reflective and not thick or gritty, so it's really comfortable," shares my colleague, Alyssa Kaplan, a Byrdie business writer and fellow fan.
Part of the popular invisible glitter trend, this shade has sold out at least once before, so if you're in the market, now is the time to buy before it's gone.
