Make That Face Monday: Day to Night Eyes with the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

OK, so here’s a commitment I’d like to make: tutorial every few Mondays. The reasons for this are many-fold (get it? As opposed to just two-fold?), but let’s just say that I want a bit of a variety~ when it comes to makeup posts on here. Reviews are freaking awesome, but you know, what’s the point of hauling and swatching when no one can even see how you use the stuff? Will you learn anything new from these tutorials? Probably not. But you get to see me make a fool out of myself. For this week’s MTF Monday, I have a haphazard eye tutorial where you can upgrade a day look to a night look using the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I think it’s useful and I take you step-by-step through it all. I hope it’s an OK video. Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement. I promise I won’t take offense, just as long as you don’t be a douche about it. I’d love to do close-ups but my camera …

April 2013 Favorites

In which I ramble too much and cut myself off mid-sent So, I usually try to have these up by the first of the month (or I was trying for that anyway), but stuff happened. So, yeah. This is a pretty succinct video and I hope you enjoy it. I only had a small bunch of beauty favorites this month. I always feel the need to like, collect a lot of items for monthly favorites, but I know that’s not truthful, so here’s the truth. 🙂 Céleteque Matte Moisturizer I was looking for a facial moisturizer that had SPF in it because I’ve gotten very paranoid about sun damage recently… and this presented itself to me. It’s very, very good and lightweight, which is perfect for the sucky weather we’ve been having over here in the tropics. It kind of leaves a white cast upon application but that goes away once the product soaks in. You only need a little product so this bottle will go a long way, even with everyday use. 🙂 BECCA …

March 2013 Favorites

Hello everyone! This is a bit early, because I really, really wanted to have my favorites up before I left for Japan! 🙂 Here are a couple of favorites from this month, and I tried to add a couple of non-beauty things in there, too. For nobody’s benefit. Anyway, here we go! Beauty Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($50, 20% off) How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I remember my friend Zaxx selling me one of her extra Naked 2 Palettes (she got them for Christmas, I think), and I said I wasn’t interested because The Internet said they were for cool-toned folk. My lesson in all of this is: Screw the rules! I don’t think I’m cool-toned, and I love this more than the “warmer” Naked Palette. I seriously love every single color in this palette. I’m so tempted to take it with me to Japan, but some of the pans are reportedly a bit loose. I’m sure I can survive a week without this palette. I’m sure of it. …

Unboxing Video: Glamourbox March 2013

So, I managed to get a Glamourbox subscription for March 2013. It’s one of those things that gets sold out so quickly that you need to get on board for the next time they roll out products. And it’s weird, because you don’t even know what you’re going to get, since subscription boxes—at least the meh ones—tend to be inconsistent. Anyway, that’s how marketing works, I guess. Included in this month’s box are, roughly, the ff. items: Eye of Horus Eyeliner, which I liked a lot Pevonia sample Heynature BB Cream sachets (4) Heynature Brightening Gel sachet (1) YSL Saharienne perfume sample Ralph Lauren Big Pony 3 perfume sample Avon Skin So Soft Hand and Body Lotion, mini bottle (2) In case you didn’t know, Glamourbox costs Php 595 a month. Theoretically, this is a great deal because you get a box sort of tailored for you, as the kind of person who signs up for surprise boxes. Some of the items are full-sized and cost much more than the subscription fee, but it’s often …

TUTORIAL: Rose-Gold Eyes

Made another tutorial for this look! Used drugstore eyeshadow, so I’m sure it will be easier to recreate. If you like the video, please put a thumbs up.
