Meet Wende Zomnir, co-founder of Urban Decay, the 90s makeup brand that’s as relevant today as it was in its graffiti-grunge heyday. In today’s episode, the Texas-born pageant girl, Mom and surfer recalls how frustration with the candy-pink facade of the beauty biz drove her to start a rebellious cosmetics company that was years ahead of its time with out-of-the-crayon-box bold eyeshadows, blue lipsticks and all-gendered, near-black nail polishes to mark its initial lineup.
We also get the incredible back story behind *the* NAKED palette that helped propel Urban Decay to the top of the beauty game (estimates are that they have topped 1 billion dollars in sales of just that one palette since it launched in 2010!)
