Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette








Although not the cheapest eye shadow palette out there, the Naked 3 palette is beautiful. Something that really grabs my attention about it is that it is so unique - there are very few dupes available in the shades the palette provides.



 All I've been wearing (eye shadow wise) recently has been created with this gorgeous set of eye shadows. The palette is rose - hued neutrals and as a massive fan of rose gold, this palette is perfect for me! The palette is very versatile, it can be used for subtle day looks or all out night looks and consists of 12 shades, 3 matte (Strange, Limit and Nooner) and the other are shimmery - although Buzz and Blackheart are very glittery.

I love how the colours are so pigmented and easy to apply that regardless of your make up ability, they look flawless and all of them compliment each other so nicely without looking too similar to each other. Also, when applying, they can be easily built up and they aren't powdery so you don't get a speckle of eye shadow on your cheekbones! 




I haven't taken a photograph of this look but for a day look, I love using Burnout all over my lid, then Buzz (my favourite shade - it's so beautiful on the outer half of my lid and then Mugshot or Darkside in my crease. Blended out, this is a lovely everyday smokey eye and looks nice with a black gel - eyeliner flick. 

For an all out, night look, I used this tutorial on YouTube which is worth a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG1QFqIMafU

Although I mainly use my Real Techniques eye brushes, the brush that comes with the palette is actually really good - I took the palette on holiday and didn't bother taking my other eye brushes. 

The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette is £38.00 in Debenhams.

Hairspray for Fringes - VO5 Ultimate Hold vs. Bed Head Masterpiece

This post is on yet another somewhat mundane issue - hairspray. There are so many brands to chose from and so many prices too! After going on holiday and forgetting hairspray (I have a fringe so use it daily to stop it looking funny) I picked up some VO5 Ultimate Hold as my usual Bed Head Masterpiece is quite pricey. So I thought I would put them to the test in a battle of skinted vs. minted.

Value for money: The Bed Head Masterpiece is considerably more at RRP £14.95 and has 60 ml less product than the Ultimate Hold (£3.29). However, one can of Masterpiece has now lasted me four months as you hardly have to use any. Also, it is much cheaper online at around £7.00. When I use the VO5 hairspray, I find I have to use a lot more for the same hold which makes the hair look like straw. However, you could buy many more cans of the VO5 for the price. 

Hold: The Bed Head is brilliant. It keeps my fringe in place even when I walk to school in the wind and unless the weather is appalling, my hair…

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

Gillette Venus Snap Razor

I've only ever used one razor, the Gillette Venus one with the soap bars. I can't remember what that's called but I'm sure you know what I mean. However, whenever I go on holiday, the heads ALWAYS SNAP! Therefore, for my recent trip abroad, I decided to pick up one of the new travel razors by Venus. I am very glad that I did. 
The razor works in the same way as the normal ones with soap bars, you simply wet the razor (or skin) and shave. However, I found that this need far less water than the usual razors and I didn't cut myself once in fortnight I used it (a common occurrence for me) if glided just as well, if not better, than my usual razors and the pink spongy pad at the end made it easy to grip. Despite being shoved around in the luggage, the blue case it came in stayed perfectly intact and I think this would be great for any travelling at all, whether it's just in your handbag or in a suitcase on an aeroplane.  
The only issue I did have with it was that the…
