Urban Decay Naked Smoky – Look

Urban Decay Naked Smoky – Look

So I ran a poll on Twitter and you guys wanted to see me create a look using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. I did a really simple day-time look. I had fun editing the eyes! ( I didn’t edit the makeup at all, just my eye color.)

My eyeliner dried out – again. Living in the desert can really take a toll on my makeup supplies. This is the third time it’s happened with Urban Decay‘s 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner, so I decided it was time to try something new.

Lime Crime Velvetine in Teddy Bear

Lime Crime does have some great liquid lipsticks in their makeup line. In fact, Red Velvet was among the first liquid lipsticks to come out on the market, before the major boom.

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and tried one of their Velvetines, mainly because I love Melanie Martinez and this shade was a collaboration with her based on her song ‘Teddy Bear’.
