Urban Decay | Smoky Palette.

I received the Urban Decay Smoky palette about 3 weeks ago. I can easily say, it's by far my favourite palette from the Urban Decay range. I always tend to go for a smoky eye, so I knew i would completely fall in love with it!

There are a lot more shimmery shades in this palette, which at first I was a little sceptical about, as I would normally prefer matte (due to the shimmer going everywhere) but I can't fault this palette one bit. It's just incredible! 
This look is by far, my most favourite and I get a lot of compliments when I do go for this. Even my boyfriend says how incredible my eyes look and I mean, come on, do guys really notice when you change your shadows? 

First of all, I use the Urban Decay Primer Potion and apply to my eyes which will help keep my eye shadow from creasing and give a longer lasting look!  Next, I take Combust, which is a taupe shade and I apply that as a base to my lids. I then take Slanted (Metallic grey) which I apply to the crease of my eyes. After that, I take Armor (metallic silver) and start applying that to the inner and outer corners of my eyes, leaving a space in the middle which I will then fill with Dirtysweet (bronze). Blend and reapply until you are happy with your finished look. A great dupe for Dirtysweet is Barry M's Bronze Gold which I use more so on nights out to give a more dramatic finish.

Then I start with my normal make up routine, beginning with my LOreal Paris Superstar Eye Liner and on this look I done just a small flick at the corner of my eyes.  Staying with eye liners, on my waterline I use Rimmel London Kohl Eye Pencil in Jet Black which I am still trying out but I am quite liking this product so far. Finally I apply L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara on my top and lower lashes.

To complete my look, I go back to my palette and take Armor and using an angled brush put it under my lower lash line. And ta-da, my finished eye look. You may add fake eyelashes which I would of done if had any handy at the time.

Let me know what your favourite smoky eye look is. I'd love to know!

August Favourites 2015.

I haven't done a favourites blog in a while and that's just down to the fact I haven't came across anything new that I've fallen in love with. But the past month I've came across quite a few things, so here they are..

Top: Please Me
Bottom: Fabby

Connor Franta | A Work in Progress : This book is very inspirational and when reading I couldn't help but sit and re-evaluate my life and life decisions. Also it was just great to sit and read about one of my favourite youtubers and his back story. If you have lost inspiration and aren't quite to sure what to do with life i'd buy this. He speaks the truth and this book helped me a lot! Also check him out on youtube too if you haven't already! 

Mac Lipstick | Fabby & Please Me : On a recent trip to Glasgow I thought I'd treat myself to some Mac lipsticks! I wanted some killer nude lipsticks as I own way too many reds and purples and not enough every day shades! 'Fabby' is a frost shade which I haven't owned before but it's becoming one of my favourite shades even if it does rub off quite quickly (well for me anyway) and 'Please Me' is matte which I'd personally wear on a night out as it doesn't rub off as much as 'Fabby' does. 

Demi Lovato | Path to Fame : I am a massive Demi fan so when this app was released I was glued to my phone for hours playing! This app is about living a life of fame in the music industry and the struggles along the way. You have to make decisions which could either ruin your friendship, relationships or sabotage your fame. It's a slight glimpse into what can really happen when you are put into those positions. I give this app 10/10 and I really hope you love this as much as I do! 

Maybelline Face Master Sculpt | Contour : This contour kit is great if you are just a newbie to contouring or if you have a budget. Only costing £6.99 you can't really go wrong with this! I'd 100% recommend buying this before you go and buy high end as contouring isn't for everyone! But since buying this I can't live without it! 

Zoella | Lets Spritz Body Mist : Being a Zoe Sugg fan I couldn't wait to try out all of her range. But this little bottle stood out from them all! I haven't gone a day in the past month without having this on! It has such a fresh smell to it, I can't even explain how amazing it smells! Your definitely missing out if you don't have this product in your life.
