TGIF! Today I wanted to share my visit to Urban Decay headquarters with you. When I went out to LA for Gen Beauty, I was also invited to go to Urban Decay to spend time with Tammy, take a tour of the headquarters and go to lunch. I was very excited and I asked if I could take my friends Ange (Hairspray & High Heels) and Jamie (Makeup Life and Love) with me. They said yes! So the 3 of us drove out to Newport Beach to see where the magic happens. It’s a purple painted paradise.
My Visit to Urban Decay Headquarters
All of these pictures were taken on my cell phone. There’s blur in a few photos because I had the flash off.
This is the lobby, complete with amazing furniture.
The artwork inside Urban Decay is amazing, as you probably expected. There’s purple everywhere, which I love. Isn’t the dog statue cute?
This is a really cool display that has all of the current Urban Decay lineup, next to the lobby. I love the Gwen Stefani display at the top center.
This is a classic piece of Urban Decay history. It’s one of the old makeup kits. So cool!
This is a really cool piece of art that someone created for Urban Decay.
This is a piece of artwork from a campaign that Urban Decay did a few years ago. I think these are employees with their pets. The kitten is so adorable.
So the UD conference rooms have amazing chairs. There are chairs done in fabric to represent each palette, like Electric, Naked Smoky, etc.
Another cool chair.
We went out to lunch with Tammy, Taylor, Amanda and several other ladies from the office, which was a ton of fun. Afterwards, Taylor took over our tour.
Urban Decay has a ton of amazing artwork throughout their office, including their bathrooms. Above are pictures from the Wonderland themed bathroom.
This is the men’s themed bathroom with plaid, fake deer and fake antlers.
The Urban Decay Feminine, Dangerous and Fun Bathroom, inspired by the trio of palettes.
This is the music themed bathroom.
A gorgeous Vice themed chair. I loved all the cool furniture around the office.
This was a really cool artistic melted paint drip wall in a conference room.
The UD initials on the wall.
Another piece of gorgeous editorial artwork on the wall.
Me and Tammy!
Me and Taylor!
Ange, me and Jamie.
Getting a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at UD’s headquarters was the highlight of my trip to California. It was every bit as cool as I imagined it would be, and then some. I love that the building, which is unassuming and plain on the outside, is filled with beautiful purple and silver everywhere inside. The furniture all over is amazing. The artwork is beautiful. It was really neat to see the people behind the scenes. The office seems like a great place to work. They’re pet friendly, too. So many cute dogs in the office!
