Smoking Hot Valentine's Day Look!

Heyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!
It's almost the most popular date night of the year, Valentine's Day. Rather you are staying home or going out you want to look and feel you sexiest so I thought why not a sexy smoky eye to go with the night. I know some of you may want to see a pretty pink eye look but I have seen so many of those on YouTube and I'm the kind of person that likes to do things a little differently then from most people.
So here is my take on a Valentine's Date night look!

For the eyes:
I applied an eye primer all over the eye lids and then I sweep a metallic taupe eye shadow from the lash line to the crease and I also applied it underneath the lower lash lines. I blend the color above the crease with a blending brush.
To add that smoke to the eyes I took a fun sparkly black eye shadow and pat it on heavily on the lower part of the lids and then blend it up softly past the crease. I applied this color underneath the lower lines too. For a little bit more depth and sparkles I added a darker black with glitter onto my lids.
I then blend the colors together with my blending brush.
For a fun highlight I added a shimmer white onto the brow bones and tear ducts.
You can’t have a smoky eye without added black cream eyeliner to the top lash lines and the water lines. You just can’t!
Top off the eyes with fake eye lashes after you applied mascara. The fake eye lashes will add a nice touch to your sexy date night eyes.
For the face:
When you do a smoky eye it is much smarter to apply your face makeup after your eyes due to the fall out. It is so much easier to clean under the eyes without any face makeup on.
Sense you want your makeup to stay in place all night you want to make sure you applied a face primer all over your face. Then applied your foundation all over with a makeup sponge or foundation brush to get more of a flawless look, and then set it with a face powder.
To get a nice dewy glow used a cream color blush onto the apple of your cheeks and then add a high lighter on top of your cheek bones. I like to use a rose pink cream color blush and a cream champagne high lighter and top it up a powder highlighter to get that nice glow to the cheeks.
To add color to your face make sure you add a light hand of bronzer to you temples, underneath your cheek bones and under your jaw line. You want to look like you got some sun and not a fight with a can of spray tan!
For the lips:
If you want red kissable lips that will stay on all night long no matter what then make sure you used a really good lip stain. My all-time favorite that I am wearing in these pictures is the Benetint rose-tinted lip & cheek stain by Benefit Cosmetics. What I did to make my lips really red was that I put on one layer on my lips and then let it dry before I added some more. If you want more of a shine to your lips then add a clear lip gloss after your lips had dried, and then Ta-Da you have red lips that won't leave your lips.
I hope you girls like this smoking hot Valentine Day look!
Let me know what you think of this look.
Have a good day or night!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!

Makeup look of the Weekend: Pretty In Pink Natural Look!

Heyy Makeup Lovers!!!
I know I usually have fun crazy night out on the town looks but I haven’t really been going out a lot lately that’s because my weekends have been filled with work, looking at houses, or just hanging out with my family. I have been using the Naked3 palette for most of my looks lately so that means I have been wearing a lot of pink but sometimes if I feel like I want to be different that day I just wear some bronze eye shadow. So as you can see I haven’t really worked with a lot of colors these days which I’m kind of missing and kind of not because as much as I do love working with all kinds of colors, I do love to wear my pink eye shadows, because pink is just my all-time favorite color. It always has been and it always will be. I just feel like the pinks add that special touch to my looks.
This look is perfect for the busy weekenders out there that want to rock out a not so natural look that won’t take much of their time. This is also really perfect for the green eye beauties.
If you want to know how to do this pretty in pink look then please read on.
For the eyes:
I applied Urban Decay Eye shadow Primer Potion in Sin all over the lids. Sin is a pretty champagne shimmer color that I have been loving. You can just use any primer that you have; it doesn’t have to be a champagne one.
I then took a baby pink eye shadow and pat it on the lids with a flat eye shadow brush.
After I blend the baby pink into the lids I then took a light dusty rose eye shadow with the same blending brush and blend the color into the crease.
For the brow bone and tear ducts I added a matte pale pink eye shadow for a nice highlight.
To keep the eyes nice and bright I applied a copper color with a hint of pink underneath the lower lash lines.
For a touch of sparkle I added a pale metallic pink with lots of glitter in it on top of the baby pink eye shadows.
Instead of using the classic black eye liner I decided to use a dark purple eye liner for the top lash lines and the water lines. Then of course I used a black mascara to finish off the eyes.
For the face: After I applied my CC Cream and face powder all over my face I used a light rose cream blush onto the apples of my cheeks and then I put on champagne color highlighter onto my cheek bones.
I also applied a bronzer onto my temples, under my cheek bones, and on my jaw line to make it look natural.
For the lips I just went with a pink lip gloss.
I hope you girls like this pretty in pink look; let me know if you would like to see more "natural pink” looks.
I hope you all have a good day and night!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!

More Naked??

Heyyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!
I feel like every time I get too busy to check my email there’s always a new Naked product by Urban Decay that comes out. I don’t know how many Naked products they’re going to make but I feel like they are going to keep making more until they run out of ideas. I can’t wait to see what they come up next.
Maybe they will make a Naked lipstick collection to go with their new Naked lip glosses, that’s right Urban Decay now has Naked lip glosses to go with all the rest of their Naked products. Before I get more into these lip glosses I just want to warn you that four out of the nine lip glosses are already sold out so if you like what you see make sure you go buy one as soon as your done reading this post. Just saying!

Now I can't tell you if they work really well or not but Urban Decays lip products are usually amazing so I'm hoping that they keep the goodness going in these lip glosses. Not only will you find your new favorite nude lip color but it also has ingredients that are good for your lips, such as Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, and Shea Butter to hydrate and condition your lips.

Here are the results of some clinical studies. •86% of participants had a significant improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. •76% had a significant improvement in volume and hydration. •86% said their lips felt nourished
That seems pretty awesome but if that doesn’t get your attention then the cool metallic champagne tube with the name Naked engraved on it should. I like the fact that it has a little window at the bottom of the tube so you can see which color it is.
If you like what you read then make sure you go to urbandecay.com right not before all the colors are sold out. They are $20.00 each. Yikes!
I hope you girls have a good day or night!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!!!!

Naked3 Review!

Heyy Makeup Lovers!!!
I am so excited to finally have a Naked palette to write about never mind it being the Naked3. Yes me who loves Urban Decay has never own a Naked palette until now, well until Christmas Day really. Those of you who have read my past post know how sad I was when the Naked3 sold out in only a few hours of it being out on the first day. I was working at the time it came out on their web site so I was one of the many unlucky ones who didn't get to buy it so I thought. I told my boyfriend I was going to get it as soon Urban Decay gets more in stock but he tells me not to buy it, that's when I knew I was getting a Naked3 Palette for Christmas!!!
I do love this palette but it could have been a little better for it being $52.00 but what can you do, because it is still a nice palette. Not only does this palette help any makeup lover create beautiful sexy eyes for weddings, parties, and everyday life events with these pretty rose-hued neutrals but it is perfect for the blue and green eye beauty’s but anyone can rock out the color pink. I love the color pink on every eye color but it just makes green eyes pop a lot more than any other eye color.I love pink on everybody! It just one of those colors that look good on any skin tone and eye color but not everybody likes pink eye shadows, that is why I'm seeing mix’s reviews on this palette. Not everybody is a pink or rose tone kind of girl but I believe Urban Decay had to go down the pink route this time because who was going to buy a Naked3 that look almost like the last two so I believe they did a smart thing by doing something completely different. They get an A in my book for that but the reason why I don't give them a + is because two of their eye shadows have a lot of fall out and don't have a lot of pigmentation like the others. I will tell you which ones they are in the pictures down below. Also some of the colors almost look alike but they are just in different finishes or the color is just deeper than the other. Another thing I hate to say this but a lot of the colors in this palette have dupes to a lot of the drug store brands and that is kind of a little disappointed on Urban Decay because most of their eye shadows are so much more unique then a lot of the others brand. They are always making they own cool colors and putting them into fun edgy cases that never break on me which is one of the reason why I love them so much! Besides those two colors the rest of the eye shadows are really pigmented and the matte colors feel so soft when you touch them. I love the matte colors in this palette, they just add such a nice soft look to the eyes. I also love the shimmery ones to because they just add a touch of sparkle to the look. One more thing that I love about this palette is the rose-gold "art-school-inspired tin case" because not only does it look like a chocolate bar wrapper but it is one of the most sturdy and non-breakable case I have ever had. Most of the palettes I have break on me like nobody business but with this little guy I can drop it without breaking any eye shadows and it won't get crush by any of my things when I travel because it is a hard tin case. I think all eye shadows should be put into hard tin cases, what do you think? Another palette that hasn't break on my yet is the Vice 2 palette by Urban Decay, I have dropped that palette so many times that my all my eye shadows should be a shattered mess but not one of them is broken. Not one!
Over all I think this is a really good palette that just has a few flaws but what product doesn't? Nothing is perfect and imperfection is beauty so that makes this palette beautiful!
Here are what the colors look like.

The name of the colors from left to right
Blackheart(smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle)This one not very pigmented and has a lot of fallout but if you wet your eye shadow brush and then applied it to your eyes it will come out so beautiful that you won't even remember it wasn't pigmented in the first place.
Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin)
Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift)
Factory (pinky-brown satin)
Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer)
Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte) This picture doesn't sure this color justice at all because this is one of the palettes best colors.
Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle)
Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter)
Limit (light dusty rose matte
Burnout (light pinky-peach satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte)
Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter)This is the other one that has a lot of fall out to but it you just pat down the color with your finger it helps reduce fall out and the color will go on better than with an eye shadow brush. I like to add this color on top of another eye shadow because it just adds a nice pop of sparkle to the look. It is not much of a color on its own; it works better with another color.
Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin)
I hope this review help any of you that were thinking about buying the Naked3!
Have a good day or night!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover.

Naked3 Looks

Heyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!
I hope you all had an awesome New Years!!
This post is going to be a little different than from most of my makeup looks of the day, year, and season. These two looks are the first looks I did with my Naked3 palette and I just wanted to show them off before I post the Naked3 palette review. They looked way better in person but the pictures didn't show off these looks very well which makes me kind of sad because they both are very beautiful.
Here are the first two looks that I did this week. I am not sure how I got this first look because I just was playing around with some of the colors and I ended up with a pretty look. No worries I will make another look almost like it. :)

I'm so in love with this second look but I'm not sure if I want to do more with it before I tell you girls how I did it.

I hope you girls look forward to read about how to do these really pretty in pink looks, well I hope you look forward to the second one. I just need some time to figure out how I did the first one. Hahaha!
I hope you have a good day or night!
Much love from you crazy makeup lover!
