Tutorial: Bright Eyes with Naked 1 Palette

Naked 1 Bright Eyes

It's been a couple of years since the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette has been released and to this very day it's still my favorite. The rich collection of metallic golds, bronzes and neutral browns make it my go-to palette for everyday wear and for an evening out.  This is also the palette of choice by a lot my brides that I have worked with over the years.  

I totally forgot to post this look for the summer time since a bright lip (especially orange) is always on trend for the season.  I didn't want it to go to waste and thought that the neutral eye shadow would be appropriate all year- just change up the lip shade.  The Champagne L.A. Girl Glide Gel Liner with the shadow Sin from the palette really brighten up the eyes. 

URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTES IN A Z-PALETTE

In the video I show you a glimpse of my depotted Naked Palettes (1-3) and a limited edition Smashbox Soft Box Palette (wish this was available all the time).  I love having all my "neutral" palettes in one place, easy for me to grab and create looks with all of the shades and keep my kit nicely condensed.  The picture of all three palettes that I printed from my computer and taped to the back of the palette is from THE FABZILLA.  Her blog is amazing and very detailed with swatches.  If you would love to see how I did this please leave a comment below! 

Here is the product breakdown of the products that I used to create the look

Tutorial/Get Ready With me - Shimmer Rose Makeup with MAC Rose Pigment

Last weekend I was cleaning out my makeup collection and I came across MAC Rose Pigment.  I totally forgot about this color and I remember it use to be one of my favorite pigments.  It is a beautiful pinkish golden infused pigment.  I really wanted to use this color for a tutorial since I need to add some "colorful" looks for my Youtube channel.

I have been getting so many requests for more videos.  I give a lot of credit to the beauties who can produce and edit a couple of videos a week and at the same time be able to manage everyday life.  It's like a 2nd job to blog, film, and post.  I recently made a schedule for myself - every Thursday 1 YouTube tutorial and at least a couple times a week for posts.  So far I've been able to do this without any problems.   It's such a great feeling getting so much support from you guys, I appreciate it so much! It really makes me want to do more and more, and I am working so hard to give you guys what you want! :) So instead of video where I talk the whole time I might as well do a "getting ready with me" makeup video.  At least you can see how I achieve a full look.  The speed is pretty fast but you can pretty much see all the steps that I am doing. I am interested how you guys like this ...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!

I have been on a glitter kick for a couple of my MOTD's on Instagram.  If you have Instagram make sure you find me and follow because I do posts looks that I do not blog about.  I should blog about all my looks but for some reason I can't get into the habit of blogging on a regular basis.  Any suggestions?

Ok anyways.. I'm heading in the wrong direction.

I finally made a new YouTube tutorial with my new video camera thanks to the mister.  Oh and I have a new DSLR too thanks to the mister.  :)  So I am all set to make amazing videos and nice pictures to post for all of you. 

 To achieve this silvery Holiday look watch the video! I promise you it is very simple and easy!
