NAKED Palette and Trench Vest

Today, I got a compliment on my eye make-up and was asked how I did the look I was rockin'! (seen below) I explained how I did it and the young woman said she still wasn't sure if she could do it. I kind of felt the urge to whip out some brushes and show her. She was already beautiful and like famous make-up artist Carmindy says, "Make-up is just the icing on the cake". But it sure is fun to apply the icing! My degree is in English/Journalism, but I have kicked around the idea of maybe becoming a freelance make-up artist.

Of course, I used my Urban Decay NAKED palette that I love so much. Naked, Half-Baked and Dark horse were my shades of choice.

NAKED 2 is out now, but I have yet to hit pan on any of my shadows, so I want to wait a while. I pretty much have a signature look. Either a bold lip or a bold eye. And the rest of the face, kind of natural like they do in France!

 When Pinky and the Brain are not trying to take over the world, they are guarding my palette!

Also wanted to show you my new vest from Forever 21! I wanted something like this for a long time. It has a million styling options, but for now I just chucked it over jeans and a tee, added a leopard clutch. Done and done! I love that it can be worn open as well. I really love vests.

If your F21 doesn't have this vest, here's a similar option from Old Navy...
