Urban Decay Naked Palette

I love neutral eye shadows. Neutral eye looks are great for maKEup beginners, or when your just in a rush in the mourning. Urban Decay created the Naked and Naked 2 pallet, proving the point that neutral eye shadows doesn't have to be boring, and can be possible to achieve a gorgeous smokey look with matte/shimmer neutrals.
For $50, you get 12 eyeshadows, mini primer potion, and a shadow brush.

Virgin, Sin

Naked, Sidecar

Buck, Half Baked

Smog, Darkhorse

Toasted, Hustle

Creep, Gunmetal

1. Virgin is a pale (light) nude beige. It's great for inner corner highlights.
2. Sin is a champagne pink with a frost finish.
3. Naked is matte, ligh-medium brown
4. Sidecar is shimmery brown with a bit red undertone. (Gorgeous!)
5. Buck is matte, just a bit darker than Naked
6. Half baked is a coppery bronze shimmer/frost
7. Smog is close to Half baked in terms of finishes, but the color is a light- medium cocoa brown
8. Darkhorse has golden shimmer in the dark brown shadow
9. Toasted is a dark pink with golden shimmer ( My fav. color!)
10 Hustle is a dark plum with a soft shimmer finish
11. Creep is a dark nacy blue, almost black shimmer

MAC Foundation, Fix Plus, & Brush Cleanser

I was in need of a liquid foundation, after giving up on trying to find the perfect shade for myself at the drugstores.The makeup artist was really nice, and applied it on my skin. I could really tell how nicely the foundation looked, evening out my skin, and covered my blemishes. It also felt very light weight, and she also advised me to not apply too much.I'm in the color NW 20

The consistancy is a bit thicker, so blending is key!
The next thing I purchased in addition to my foundation routine is the Fix +

And last of all, a brush cleanser for my Mac brushes. They're good for spot cleaning and once a week I'll deep clean with baby shampoo.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation $27, Fix + $20, Brush Cleanser $13. Avaliable at MAC cosmetics.
