Face of the Day with Naked 3

While I was laying in bed last night I was thinking about how I was going to do my makeup the next day (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this…. ) and thought to myself “I haven’t used the Naked 3 in a long time I’ll use that! ” Well… I was really planning on doing something adventurous but I woke up late and while I did end up using the Naked 3 I did a simple look.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and BH Cosmetics- Part 2

PicMonkey Collage123

I was planning on just numbering the shades in the palette but I found the pictures below on BH Cosmetics Instagram and apparently the shadows have names although they aren’t on the packaging.

PicMonkey Collage

I have Elizabeth Motts Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer all over my lid.  I then put Bone all over over my lid up into my crease. Then I used a mixture of Burnt Sienna and Chocolate Brown in the crease and really defused it with a fluffy crease brush.  Then I used Shell Beige on the outer and inner portions of my lid leaving the middle section of my eyelid clean.  Then I popped Yellow Gold on the middle of my eyelid. I chose Pale Ivory and Lilac Pink mixed as an inner corner highlight.  In the second pictures below I  used a mixture of Slate Gray and Shimmering Charcoal on my lower lash line and Avon SuperShock Gel Eye Liner Pencil in Aqua Pop on my lower lash line.
