This isn’t all the makeup I’m wearing today, but it’s certainly my favorite items on my face. I recently bought this primer to even out the dark spots left from blemishes along my jawline and on my forehead. I haven’t been using it long enough to see a dramatic change, but it doesn’t make my face shiny which is positive.
I love the glow I get from this skinfinish. It has tiny flecks of glitter that photograph well, but are very noticeable in person. It teeters towards being a bit 13-year-old-ish but I don’t mind. My 25th birthday is in a month so I need to hold on to some form of youth.
As for the Naked 3 palette, I like it. Some of the colors look the same no matter how you wear them, but they last all day and have great pigmentation. I’ve also noticed less fall-out with these shadows which is typically UD’s downfall.
Keeping it neutral today with my favorite Urban Decay palette. Spoiler alert: It’s not a Naked palette.

I was excited to try my new purple eyeliner and it did not disappoint. I rarely like to wear black eyeliner anymore because it can be too harsh. This kohl pencil from Sephora was a total steal for only $8.
This gloss balm is very pigmented, but I only applied a small amount to tint my lips. I’ve been licking my lips a lot this winter and didn’t want to waste a good lipstick. I’m glued to my Nivea lip butter as a back up.
I love my Urban Decay Ammo Palette, and I’m eager to try the Naked 3 palette. Do any of you have it? What’s your review?
Today’s work outfit was a blank slate of black and grey so I wore a pink pout with bright cheeks. It worked, trust me.

I kept my eye neutral using the lighter shade of my favorite NARS Eyeshadow Duo to sweep into my crease and add definition to my eye. I lined my eyes with dark purple liner, which looks beautiful against brown eyes, and painted my lips with one of my favorite Covergirl lipsticks. It has a subtle sheen with small iridescent flecks of lilac and fuchsia.
