Neutral Glam Look

Hello beautiful! Today's look is all about creating a simple face with neutral colours but with a hint of glam for that everyday diva in you. This look is inspired by the popular MUA Undress Me Too palette, which is said to be a perfect dupe to Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette :)

Mini Review: The MUA Undress Me 2 palette is a new favorite of mine. While at the moment I can't personally compare it to its Urban Decay partner, I can say that the colours in this palette are perfect for everyday wear. The colors are more cool toned with the taupes and greys but you can get some warmth with the golden shades. The colors themselves are pigmented, blend easily and range from subtle to full on shimmer. The only drawback to me with this palette was the lack of matte shades, although you do find a few with very soft shimmer.

I adore the packaging with the clear cover so you can see all your colours without opening the case. The case is white compared to the usual black cases for other MUA palette I own. The shade names are written to the back of the packaging. 
Available locally at Glamour Republic :)

The Eyes Have It:
1. Prime your eyes with a neutral base.
2. Using the light taupe shade Exposed and a flat shader brush, apply this colour to the first third of the eye lid starting from the tear duct. Also apply to the first third of the lower lashline.
3. Using a deep taupe, Obsessed, blend into Exposed and then continuing patting this shade over the rest of the eyelid. 
4. Using a black, Corrupt deepen the outer V to bring some definition to the eye. Blend softly into the crease. 
5. Use a brown shade like Lavish, blend out any harsh lines from Corrupt. 
6. Further blend out Lavish using a highlight shade such as Naked.
7. Optional, place a small amount of a shimmery highlight such as Shy to the highest point of your brow arch.
8. Complete your look with some black liner, mascara and falsies.

Keep the rest of your face simple, with a soft peachy blush and nude lips. Here I'm using one of the new matte lipsticks from Sacha Cosmetics. This is Matte Me Nude. Since matte lipsticks can be a bit drying, apply a lip balm before application of the lipstick.

Now add some dramatic earrings and your simple but glam look is complete. How do you glam up a simple look?

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
