UD Naked 3 Palette: Soft Smokey Eyes

Hola Chicas! I used my lovely Naked 3 palette to achieve this look for NYE. 

First, I applied "Trick" all over my lid. 
Second, I smoked out my outer v with "Darkside".
Last, I used "Buzz" to blend out any harsh edges.

Easy Peasy. ; ) 

Makeup on my face:
Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
Victoria Secret Luminous Mineral Blush-Duo "Pleasure"
Tarte Smooth Operator Concealer 
Rimmel Eyeliner
Anastasia Brow Wiz
Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara
Mac RI RI WOO Lipstick
Mac RI RI WOO Lip liner
A dab of Victoria Secret Gloss "In Too Deep" 
House of Lashes "Siren" 

Hope everyone has a great start to 2014!!!!
Be Blessed!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Hey Gals! How is everyone doing?? I am happy to show you my favorite purchase for this month. Surely you have seen this everywhere on YouTube but I still wanted to post a blog all about my new pride and joy. Haha. Oh and please excuse my cat's tail. She always likes to be in pictures and in my videos if you haven't noticed already. ; )

Retail price $52

Ta-Da! Check out these 12 NEW rose-hue neutral eyeshadows. 

(left to right)

Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin)
Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter)
Burnout (light pinky-peach satin)
Limit (light dusty rose matte)
Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter)
Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle)
Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte) 
Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer)
Factory (pinky-brown satin)
Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift)
Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin) 
Blackheart (smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle)

The first 3 shades are very light and not too visible on my olive skintone however I find them to be useful when blending out harsh edges. "Dust" has the most micro-glitter out of all 12 shades. I have to say I am not too fond of this one because it is on the powdery side plus there is a lot of fall out. What I have been using the most so far is "Burnout", "Limit", "Buzz", and "Darkside" to create an everyday neutral eye look. Nothing too glamorous.  I can't wait too try a smokey eye look using "Blackheart" which is amazing black with a twist!! Overall I LOVE this palette and would recommend this to all my fellow olive skin toned gals out there.

Let me know what you think! And please remember to check out my YouTube channel for new beauty videos!!!
