Spring is here and I cant wait for the rain to stop so I can breakout sandals!! My feet are sick of socks and want to be free!!! Here are some of my definite wants in neutrals and pinks for this most lovely time of the year!!!!
I have been meaning to do a post on this for a while now. Can I just say I freaking love Urban Decay!!! I love their palettes! So awesome!! So I finally got my hands on the Naked 2 eyeshadow palette.. It has such a great range of shades! I have been using it a lot lately. It has a nice range of neutrals and golden and bronze shadows and then you get soft violet, metallics and a matte black. I could probably use this everyday and never buy any other eye shadow because it is so great!! I love the half baked shimmery gold/bronze eye shadow, this is my second palette that has it so I wont be running out for a while. My other fav is definitley snake bite. Its a darker bronze, that would work for anyone! Especially green or blue eyes, makes them pop! All the colors are great, and for $60 it comes with a makeup brush and mini lip gloss. Quite a value if I do say so myself.
People are always asking me which is better, a ceramic brush or a boar bristle brush? I think its really upto personal preferance. However there are some definite pluses to each. A ceramic round brush will help create more curl and a lot of volume because the blow dryer heats up the ceramic body of the brush allowing it to act like a curling iron. With this also adds shines and creates a smooth finish. And as with any other hot styling tool, make sure you use a heat protectant, especially when you have fine hair! It is so important to keep your hair healthy. A boar bristle brush is great when you need to smooth out frizz or curly hair. Especially on coarse hair it works well. You can really work out the curl or kink and smooth. Sometimes I will use both though to get extra smoothing!
Size of brush is always another question as well… Whether you choose the large or small round brush just remember what they do, and what the end result you are looking for is. When you use a small barrel round brush it will create more volume and curl. A large barrel round brush will smooth hair more and create a softer volume.
