The Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay

I did it. I bought the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I know what you’re thinking, “Lauren, don’t you have enough make-up already??.”  My simple answer to that is, YES. I do have enough makeup, but here’s how I justified my purchase of the Naked 2.

  1. I am a makeup artist- it is my job to have a wide arrange of colors and variety.
  2. It’s my job to use the latest and greatest. I do reviews on products, and I enjoy being familiar with the best of the best in beauty.
  3. This palette is convenient. Neutral colors all in one place. Great for bridal makeup, smokey eye, or neutral everyday look.
  4. I can use it day to day for myself, or for work.
  5. The colors are beautiful! And , it was inexpensive compared to buying single eye shadows.

Need I say more? I’ve always been a MAC girl..and have many MAC eye shadow palettes so I sort of feel like a trader crossing over and buying Urban Decay eye shadows but it’s nice to diversify. :)

Tell me your thoughts on the Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay and if you have the original Naked Palette, which you like more??

So far, I am really impressed by the quality and color pay off from these shadows. :) I love all the neutrals and that it contains a matte bone color, great for highlighting and a matte black color, great for eyeliner or smoking out color.

MAC Eyeshadow: My Top 10 Picks for Medium Skin~Series

Hey Everyone!! I hope you are all having a good week. Today is part 3 and I will be telling you my favorite MAC eye shadows for Medium skin tones.

First, I must boast about a product I am LOVING. It is Bobbi Brown's Corrector. Am I the last person on the planet to try this?? Seriously, why did I not know this stuff existed. It has super powers. No, not really. But it's amazing on dark circles. You still need  to use concealer after using this product but it takes out any dark shadow under the eye. Here is a link to see the product on the BB Website: http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/templates/products/spp/index.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY22762&PRODUCT_ID=PROD6398

Now, for my top 10 MAC shadows for medium skin tones.

  • Woodwinked- a bonzey copper penny shade
  • Sable- a deep shimmery plum/brown
  • Mulch- a sparkly dark rich brown
  • Antiqued- a shimmery brown/red
  • Sumptuous Olive- a shimmery green olive
  • Amber Lights- a shimmery  bright copper/orange
  • Bronze-  a shimmery bronze
  • Shadowy Lady- a deep matte purple
