Meet Urban Decay’s Global Citizens
Karol G, CL, Lizzo, Ezra Miller, and Joey King Shake Things Up With “Pretty Different”
Urban Decay is a groundbreaking beauty brand that has stood for being different and cruelty-free since it first launched in 1996. The brand’s mission is to challenge the status quo, reminding people that makeup is for anyone and everyone and should always be fun, untamed, and unexpected. Urban Decay continues to reject the sameness that runs through the beauty industry with the launch of “Pretty Different,” a manifesto that embraces pure, unapologetic individuality.
“‘Pretty Different’ is our anthem for fellow makeup junkies who don’t subscribe to beauty standards,” says Wende Zomnir, Urban Decay’s Founding Partner. “It’s our tribute to individuality because everyone is pretty different. It’s our approach to reinventing what it means to be a beauty brand.”
With “Pretty Different,” Urban Decay is also announcing five new spokespeople, a collective of trailblazers who refuse to accept forced standards and instead champion uniqueness. Karol G, CL, Lizzo, Ezra Miller, and Joey King star in the campaign and will front upcoming Urban Decay launches throughout the year, serving as advocates for being “Pretty Different.”
“Our UD Citizens are dynamic, global voices that stand up for what they believe in,” continues Zomnir. “They are the true definition of ‘Pretty Different’ and embody the spirit of UD. Because being different doesn’t only mean being ‘weird’ or going against the status quo—it means you being you.”
The “Pretty Different” global movement is live today across digital and social media. Get inspired to be whoever you want to be at @UrbanDecayME #PrettyDifferent.
ABOUT URBAN DECAY COSMETICS
Urban Decay appeals to those who relish their individuality and embrace what makes them different. We have challenged the industry’s definition of beauty since 1996, when we disrupted the sea of pink dominating makeup counters everywhere. From our all-encompassing, cruelty-free range of bold and velvety eyeshadows—which include our bestselling (and often-copied) Naked palettes—to our award-winning eye pencils, budge-proof mascaras, and cult-status makeup setting sprays, our version of “pretty” has always been pretty different.
