Urban Decay Naked 3 Pallet: Review

IMG_0138

Hello Guys,

So this Christmas I got something I was not expecting at all. I received my very own Naked 3 Pallet !! FINALLY! 🙂 I legitimately almost started crying! I had been eyeing up this pallet for a couple weeks but was going to buy it on my own. I guess that my mom was picking up on all the hints I had been dropping and picked one up for me for Christmas. I had tried out the original Naked Pallet but didn’t exactly like it as much as I thought I would. The colors in it just did not work at all with my eye color and actually made me look washed out, now it is my momma’s! 🙂  This pallet is full of brand new rose toned neutrals, that I am very excited about. I couldn’t wait to start playing around with all the different looks, but before I started I took these pictures with my camera. I am so happy to have one! Without further a due, lets get into the review.IMG_0144

 All twelve of the eyeshadows are exclusive to the pallet and are brand new colors in Urban Decay’s line. The colors in the Naked 3 are warm based neutrals with pinkish undertones, perfect for hazel, green, or blue eyes and warm toned skin. This pallet also comes with a variety of finishes including 3 mattes/satins and 9 shimmers. I really love all the colors in this edition because they’re so versatile. You can go with a soft everyday look and then later go back to the darker shades to create a nice smokey look. Pigmentation of all the eyeshadows is brilliant, trust me when I say a little goes a very long way. The shadows are also velvety that they glide on like a dream. The rose-gold packaging is also really durable as well as pretty! When you close the pallet it clicks and locks into place, which is really nice because you know it won’t open and break all over your things whilst traveling. Also, a double sided brush and a sample of primers come along with the pallet as an extra gift! All in all, I am super impressed!

Makeup for Lydia :)

BEFORE AFTER

 

Hey Everybody,

So today my beautiful friend Lydia let me do her makeup. I decided that I would do a progression of pictures of the makeup process and describe what I did! 🙂

FandCStep One: Foundation & Concealer

We just used Stila’s HD Beauty Balm, Lydia’s foundation, and Rimmel London’s Hide Blemish Concealor

Eye ShadowStep Two: Eye Shadow

We used a few colors from the Lorac Unzipped Pallet and the Too Faced Natural Eye Pallet to create a smokey, rose gold, eye look!

Colors used:

Brow Highlight: Heaven by Too Faced           Inner Corner: Silk Teddy by Too Faced

Crease Color: Erotica by Too Faced                 Eyelid colors: Unreal, Undiscovered, & Unattainable by Lorac

Blush and Bronze

Step Three: Blush and Bronzer

I contoured Lydia’s cheekbones with my “The Body Shop” Bronzing Powder in the color 01. You can’t really see it in the picture unfortunately. Also, I used Rimmel London’s 006 Autumn Catwalk Blendable Blush and Highlighter.

Eye LinerI used a Loreal Paris liquid eyeliner to create a little bit of a cat eye for Lydia. I am terrible at using the actual brush the eyeliner comes with so I just used my Sonia Kashuk eyeliner brush.

LipsOn Lydia’s lips I did a just bitten lip look that has been really popular makeup look for the Fall and Winter. Her base lip color is Revlon’s Colorburst Lipstick in the color 070 Soft Nude. The reddish color in the center of her to create the “bitten” look is  Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable 045 Romantic, and I applied it with my Sonia Kashuk lip brush.
