Urban Decay Naked Naked2 Naked3 Palettes Which Urban Decay Naked Palette Is For You?

Hey All! I’m sure many of you are wondering, with this new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette release, if it’s right for you – or if you if you’re a UD Naked palettes newbie, which one is a good fit.  As this is their third palette in the Naked series, I feel like it’s pretty important to understand how this one compares to the previously released Naked and Naked 2 palettes. Naked 3 has an overall rose gold theme with 12 eyeshadows in a pretty, wave-textured tin case.

Urban Decay Naked Palettes Which Urban Decay Naked Palette Is For You?

Each palette has 12 shadows, generally flowing from light to dark. The current selling palettes all come with a synthetic eyeshadow brush. Generally speaking, Naked has mostly warm neutrals, Naked 2 is in the neutral-to-taupe range with more drastic light and dark shadows, and Naked 3 is distinctly more pink with a lot of mid-to-light shades. Naked 3 has no copycat shadows in any other collection, which is nice for you palette hoarders out there (you know who you are!) who don’t want dupes.

So let’s break it down: CONTINUE READING

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Cat Eyes

I’m no pro makeup artist. But there’s one beauty technique that I’ve got down pat – the elusive cat eye. It requires patience and a steady paw…but once you put in a little practice, a ferosh fe-lined eye isn’t far off.

spoiled pretty covergirl cat eye1 Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Cat Eyes

Besides practice, high-quality/easy-to-use products are the key to this look. I used three CoverGirl products to achieve this purr-fect cat eye.  It was easy, breezy and beautiful – if I do say so myself. Here’s how I did it:

1)      Apply the silver end of CoverGirl Smokey ShadowBlast – Onyx Smoke all over your lid – from the lash line and up past the crease. Also use it to trace the inner corner of your eye to make your peepers pop.

2)      Line the top lid using CoverGirl LiquilineBlast Eyeliner – Black Fire. At the outer corner of the eye, curve the line up slightly. Figuring out the angle of the “flick” can be kind of tricky, so here’s a tip: aim for the point where your brow ends.

3)      Apply CoverGirl LiquilineBlast Eyeliner – Black Fire to the waterline of the lower lid.

4)      Create fierce fringe with CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara. This mascara is amazing, y’all. It features an innovative curved brush that lets you load up the volume without the clumps, even after 30 strokes!

See how simple it is? With these three CoverGirl products, you can go from “I don’t know how” to MEOW!

Wanna re-create my look? Shop the P&G eStore and get $3 off two CoverGirl products OR get a FREE Cat Eye Look (which includes LiquilineBlast Eyeliner – Black Fire, Smokey ShadowBlast – Onyx Smoke, and LashBlast Volume Mascara – Very Black), when you spend $69.

MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection

MarilynMonroe LineUp 72 MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection“Pure platinum Hollywood glamour. Channel the legend’s luster & sex appeal in a colour collection distinctively Marilyn. It’s everything you need to capture the MM look. Specially designed packaging features imagery from The Black Sitting.” -MAC Cosmetics

As a girl who is a huge fan of big lashes and red lipstick, I was really looking forward to the Marilyn Monroe collection that MAC Cosmetics put together. Apparently, me and every other girl who considers herself a fan of makeup! A few days after the release of the collection, everything was sold out in the two stores by me. Luckily, Daneen received some products for me to test out.

First, there was eyeshadow in How To Marry. This is a great, shimmery base shadow – I love to use it when I’m going for big lashes and heavy black eyeliner. I also had a lip liner in Beet, which was a nice creamy shade of reddish pink. I did not have any lipsticks from this collection, so I paired the Beet lip liner with the quintessential matte Russian Red lipstick.

Next, there was an eye kohl in Fascinating (bright white), and  Dazzleglass in Little Rock (sheer white with pearl). For effect, I lined my inner lids with the kohl in Fascinating, added mascara to both top and bottom lashes, and added a thick line of MAC eyeshadow in Marvel. I then used the dazzleglass in Little Rock, for a very 60′s fresh face with full lashes look. This one was hard to capture on film, as the shimmer is subtle (thank goodness, none of us need to go back to the middle school roll on glitter look) but it looks really fun in person.

Overall, this is a great collection. The pieces I got are great additions to my arsenal, and all of the shades are classic and chic. Keep up the good work, MAC!
