LOTD: Easy, everyday work look

Hey!

One of the most requested looks is the neutral, everyday look.  Something that makes you look polished for work.  I used my trusty Naked Palette from Urban Decay, but you can use any neutral, close-to-your-skintone colour.  I chose shimmery, bronzey makeup, but you could also use champagnes, taupes, pale pinks, whatever works for you!

Here’s the look!

LOTD: Glittery, bronzey, Arabic-inspired look!!

Hey!!!

This is my first look of the day for 2011 and it’s a stunning one!!

Last week, my Middle Eastern dance instructor, Jannelle,  was invited to perform at the surprise 40th birthday party for Mary J. Blige!!!!!!!!!

I was trilled and privileged at the opportunity to do her makeup at the event! I immediately started thinking about the look.  An event like that, with all the movers and shakers in the music industry, requires more than just a smoky eye.  You have to bring it!!!

The theme of the event was Arabic-inspired and I wanted more than just kohl-lined, winged liner.  I drew inspiration from Eman and Scandalous Beauty and decided on a glittery look.  Jannelle also wore a gold, sparkly costume and I wanted something to match.  This is a great look for performance especially in situations where there is not a lot of bright lighting so that you are drawn to the dancers eyes.  Could also be used for a Carnival look.  I also paired it with a red lip and a hit of shimmer. Btw, I have found an amazing red that everyone can wear – Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Intense lipstick in Moulin Rouge (#43)! Separate post on that coming soon!  Using glitters was stepping out of my zone, but makeup is all about not being afraid to try something new.  One note: If you are going to use glitters, especially on the eyes, make sure it is cosmetic-grade, which is milled fine enough and won’t scratch your eyes.

Anyway, here is the final look!

Finally got Naked!!!

Yup!

I finally got the already cult classic, the Urban Decay Naked Palette!  Super excited!!!  This palette came out I think in the summer of 2010, and it flew off the shelves like hot bread!! Folks are hawking it on Ebay for hundreds of dollars already.  Now, before I go any further…..

this palette is PERMANENT!

No need to sell your soul or anything.  Urban Decay has been having a hard time keeping this item in stock, sold out online or at Sephora.  So what’s so special about this palette?
