New UD Naked Basics 2 Palette!

Hey everyone!
If you know me then you know the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette is one of if not my favorite palette.  I just saw that they released a Naked Basics 2, which has more cooler shades.  I went from thinking I didn't need it to thinking I must have it.

This is part of the description on the Urban Decay website, "Cooler in tone than the original, Naked2 Basics complements Naked2 perfectly. We loaded this indispensable palette with six TAUPE-hued matte neutrals, including five never-before-seen shades. These shadows are neutral enough for anyone, from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin."

I'm not sure if it's really an essential palette if you have loads of other shades like it or similar.  I am actually thinking of getting it, it is $29 and has 6 eye shadows.

The shades:

  • Skimp (pale nude satin)
  •  Stark (nude-pink matte)
  • Frisk (warm gray matte)
  •  Cover (muted red-brown matte)
  • Primal (muted brown matte) 
  •  Undone (deep, smoky brown matte).

New Stila Eyes Are The Window Eye Shadow Palettes

Hey everyone!
Stila has released four new limited edition eye shadow palettes.  These palettes are already available on the Ulta website(click here for link) and are part of the Fall 2014 Collection.

This is the description found on Ulta's website: "Stila Eyes Are The Windows to the body, mind, spirit and soul. This year, Stila celebrates 20 years of infinite style. Create endless looks with their "Eyes Are The Window" shadow palettes. Inspired by the spiritual notion that true beauty is revealed from within, each palette is curated with 12 luxurious eye shadows to illuminate your inner beauty. Encased in exquisite, jewlery-inspired compacts - a precious mix of rose, yellow and white golds - the shadows will inspire intrigue and delight. Each palette comes with a lookbook curated by Sarah Lucero, Stila's Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry."

I don't know much about these palettes yet but I will be informing you guys when I know more about them.  I do know that these palettes are $49 and seem to have twelve eye shadows in each one.  I have never tired any Stila products before but I defiantly am interested in getting one of these palettes.

Shades:






Mind Palette (matte)          









Soul Palette (matte, shimmery neutrals)










Body Palette (shimmery jewel shades)








Spirit Palette (iconic Stila popular shades)









Let me know your thoughts on these palettes and which one you think you would be most likely to buy.

Tip Tuesday: How to Make Your Eyes Look Brighter




Hey everyone!
Today I'm going to be sharing a tip with you guys that many of you have probably heard of, using a nude eyeliner in your waterline.

What it does: It is suppose to make your eyes look bigger,brighter, and more awake.  It is an alternative to using black eyeliner in your waterline.

Now I use a nude eyeliner in my waterline pretty much everyday during the school year and when I'm wearing makeup.  My favorite is the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in 005 Nude.  I love this eyeliner because it actually stays in my waterline for a pretty long time and it isn't to pale that it looks white, it is a good creamy skin tone color that really helps to make me look more awake.









What I love about this eyeliner is that it's long wearing, under $5, and the creamy formula reminds me of Urban Decay eyeliners but just a bit creamier.  It is matte and a good color for a range of skin tones.  I recommend picking up a nude eyeliner if you are looking for a way to brighten your eyes.
