Good afternoon class,
Ooooh how exciting – my first ever FOTD!! ♥ I’m not super amazing at doing my own makeup but I do enjoy having a bit of a play around now and then. I think the thing I find most difficult about blog posts such as these is the fact that I am not only terrible at taking photos (especially eye makeup ones) but I also have a crappy iPhone 4S (PLEASE help me convince my boyfriend to let me buy the 6 – for the love of God!). So, I apologize in advance that I’m not a beautiful model/makeup artist however some Plain Janes or Average Joes like myself (or anyone really) might be interested all the same.
I’m going to show you a select few selfies that made the cut, as well as some (average) photos of my eye makeup and then tell you all the products I used and in which order. Hopefully it all works out okay, and I’d love any constructive criticism on not only the look but the products I used or the way I took the photos. Lemme have it!
Here’s a before pic…
FOTD – January 2015
…and here I am after!
Excuse the messy bedroom but here we have it…. drum roll please… my face of the day! You may think that I’m going out clubbing or to a wedding or a special event… alas, I was just watching Shaaanxo on YouTube and felt like having a play around. The only place I’m going today is most likely the supermarket, and no I wouldn’t recommend this one for school (if you’re a teacher or student) mainly because of the excessively long lashes.

Good Morning Class,
After spending hours awake last night with my brain tick-tick-ticking I decided what I’d like my next blog post to be about. I am a member of several makeup/girl/beauty related Facebook groups and lets just say my news feed is crammed with makeup posts each day. A common topic I’ve noticed on these pages is regarding the creme-de-la-creme of eye shadow palettes… the Urban Decay ‘NAKED’ palettes. Which one should I buy? Which is good for [insert eye colour here]? Which one has the best colours? Which is most pigmented? What if I’ve already got [insert dupe here]? Luckily for all of us (and unluckily for the boyf), I’ve taken the liberty of acquiring all three so that I can review and recommend appropriately.
The Urban Decay NAKED palettes include 12 matte and shimmer shades selected from the Urban Decay shadow collection. They are all neutral shades with each palette having its own theme of colours. These palettes are perfect for creating quick on-the-go looks because they come with so many shades and each one has a double sided brush and mirror. I use these palettes regularly to create simple looks for school and I can quickly sparkle it up with some of the gorgeous shimmery shades (which the kids LOVE). I have been told “Miss White I love your eyeshadow today!” after using one of these palettes.
Today I’m going to tell you my thoughts about each palette and I might even spill which one is my number one favourite palette from the collection (which happens to include my second favourite eye shadow of all time!). Continue reading
