Pretty in Mauve

Monday, August 14, 2017

Urban Decay Naked3 PaletteI have loved pinks for quite a while now. Call me girly or whatever, but I do love pinks, purples, and mauves. When the Urban Decay Naked3 Eye Shadow palette, full of mauve and rosy eye shadows came out, I immediately knew I wanted it. My favorite color is Buzz, a mauvey shimmer that is so pretty and  unique that I couldn't find a similar color of eye shadow anywhere.

I usually use the following colors because I think they create a unique and mauvey rose look that is great for daytime.

Limit: a nice medium-light transition color to put on the crease

Nooner: a medium rosy light-brown color that is nice to add to the outer corners of the eye

Buzz: a shimmery mauve (cool, dusty rose) which is so pretty as a lid color. I also like to use Burnout (a peachy pink shimmer) or Trick (a peachy gold shimmer) as the lid color.

Blackheart: A dark maroon with sparkles. I use this with a wet, e.l.f. small smudge brush as eyeliner

I think this palette is so unique because of the combination of mattes and shimmers that will give you a natural-looking pretty pink tone to your eye makeup. I usually go for a subtle and natural look for daytime, since I'm normally just out running errands.


Just to continue with the mauve effect, I used the Urban Decay Rapture lipstick.

For the eyelashes, I first used Lancome Definicils Mascara for length. And then I layered Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara over the top for volume.
