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?

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
