Palettes on Palettes

I love buying and testing out new eyeshadows. There’s always the staple shadows I love but after I while I get bored and need to try something new! That’s why I love buying palettes; they offer so many options so you don’t get use to just one shadow and tire of it!

Some of my favorite palettes are Naked 2 by Urban Decay, Full Exposure by Smashbox, In The Know Palette by Stila (discontinued), & Boudoir Eyes by Too Faced.


Some of Our Favorite Products

In case anyone was wondering what we use on a daily basis, I listed out some of our favorite products below!



Ready For A Night Out!

You don’t always need a special occasion to get your makeup done and strut your stuff! Sometimes a night out with the girls is exactly what you need, and having your makeup done is the icing on the cake. The beautiful Shannon was pampered and polished before heading into the city – doesn’t she look amazing?!

  • Whole lid: half baked
  • Crease: snakebite
  • Outer corners: blackout

  • Brow bone: bootycall
  • Stila Smudge Pot Liner (top lid)
  • Smashbox Always Sharp Eyeliner (water line)

For her beautiful skin I used Debra Macki Sunlit Beige Concealer, Debra Macki Foundation, Too Faced Translucent Powder, & Palladio Baked Blush-Atlantic.

And to top it off, for a subtle lip I used:

Before & After – Laurens Birthday!

Hi Everyone!

It was Lauren’s birthday weekend and I did her and Emily’s make up!  Check out their before and afters!  

Lau original  Lauren MUSmiling

For Lauren we used the Urban Decay Naked Pallet #1 for her eyes and Stila Smudge Pot for the liner.  For those wild lashes we used Mac #16 lashes.  They really make her eyes pop!  I didn’t need to do too much to her face because she already had a lot of color from recently being in the sun.  I used a little foundation and very little concealer.  The TooFaced Translucent Powder really helped with the shine on her nose and forehead.  Great for a matte finish.


Emily was going for a more natural look.  We didn’t want to hide her beautiful freckles too much but we did want her to have a nice sun-kissed look so we contoured around her cheek bone and gave her a neutral look around her eye again using the Urban Decay Naked Pallet #1.

Over all it was a great night and these girls looked smoking hot!
