Check out the loot I picked up today. So excited to work with it all on all my brides! Here is a breakdown of what I picked up and some tips on how to use it to get its full potential!

The Naked palette by Urban Decay is a very well known eyeshadow palette and the colours don’t disappoint!  This palette has a wonderful combination of both matte, satin finish and frosted neutral tones.  Looking for a great everyday eyeshadow palette?  Be sure to go take a look at the Urban Decay Naked Palette.  It also comes with a very handy eyeshadow brush (and its not a cheap one that will fall apart in two uses either!) and a sample size of Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer.  Put the primer on underneath your eyeshadow and it will intensify your shadow colours and keep that eye makeup on all day and night!

The Smashbox Photo Finish Primer is a fantastic makeup primer that helps to smooth the skin before your foundation, concealer, and powder.  It fills in the minor texture imperfections making the surface extra smooth.  It also gives your face makeup something good to adhere to which means, you use less makeup, and it lasts way longer!  Bonus! So if you have a special event you are going to, primer, primer, primer! You won’t regret it!

The Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid is an amazing highlighter for your cheekbones!  Want your cheekbones to look higher?  Try a shimmer highlighter!  The trick is not to use this everywhere, but to limit it to just those few locations you want enhanced (read:  cheekbones!)  This would be applied over top of your foundation and concealer, but before any powders.

I hope all these tips help you out if you have these products at home and aren’t quite sure how to use them!
