Makeup as Art: First look at the Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquait Collection #UDxBasquiat
Hola Estrellitas!! I am super excited about this makeup collection from Urban Decay, the Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquait Collection. I have been a fan of Basquiat since I learn about him in the early 90s, when I first moved to the United States.
If you are not familiar with the artist, this is what UD posted on their website about him: “Jean-Michel Basquiat began drawing and painting at the age of four and never stopped. By the time he was in his teens, his graffiti was a fixture around lower Manhattan. After leaving home at 17, Basquiat began selling hand-painted postcards and T-shirts. At 20, he landed his first public exhibition. A pioneer of the neo-expressionist movement, he quickly rose to fame on the ’80s art scene in NYC, where he ran with the likes of Andy Warhol, David Bowie and Debbie Harry. His iconic work is still exhibited all over the world”.
The UD Jean-Michel Basquait Collection will be on sale on April 20. It is a special edition and as always, limited quantities only have been made. This means, try to get your hands on it as soon as you can. The line includes 12 limited edition products including: Makeup bags, shadow and blush palettes, lipsticks and eye pencils, all inspired by Basquiat’s artwork.
