3 Looks Using the Naked 3 Palette

Hi Makeup Geeks! Today I am going to share with you 3 different and unique looks using the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I love this palette, it might be my favorite of them so far. 🙂  I know a lot of you have this palette and hopefully this will give you some go-to looks you can incorporate into your arsenal of ideas.

Look 1:

The first is a slightly smokey look that is ideal for a night out with that special someone. The lighter lid will make your eyes look larger and more open. For a more day appropriate look switch your lip color to a soft nude/pink, or transform it into a night time look by adding a brighter gloss.

Beauty Bites: Getting Plump Lips

Hello Makeup Geeks and welcome to BEAUTY BITES! This is a new series full of quick tips to help you get out the door and on your way. Each video will focus on a different product that will help you on days you are in a rush but still want to look your best. 🙂

Today we will be looking at how to achieve that perfect pout everyone desires.  As we age our lips tend to thin and for some of us, we were born with thinner lips, but no matter how you got them hopefully these tips and tricks will have your lips looking luscious in not time.

White Liner

I know this may seem odd, but by lining the Cupid’s Bow with a white liner and blending it slightly, it will emphasize the upper lip giving it a fuller appearance. Some of my favorites are:

  • NYX Slim Eye Pencil in White – (Amazon) (eBay)
  • NARS Santa Monica Blvd. – (Amazon) (eBay)
  • Rimmel London in Pure White – (Amazon) (eBay)

The BEST thing you can do to get the appearance of fuller lips is to wear a light color lipstick and a light lip gloss. Lip gloss will instantly make your lips look bigger because it reflects the light and bounces it off.  Some of my favorite lip glosses are:

  • Maybelline Color Sensational  #290 Flash of Pink –  (Amazon) (eBay)
  • NYX Mega Shine –  (Amazon) (eBay) Continue reading
