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…

Somehow I'm Going to Oxford....

This blog post is a little (a lot) on the surreal side.

If you follow my on Instagram you may already know this but if not, I thought I'd just add a quick note on here. I am about to officially become a first year Law student at the University of Oxford!

I'll probably post a little bit more about this at another time but for now, I thought I'd just briefly highlight the process.

Flashback to September 2016. I'd just started A Level and for the past few years, Durham had been at the top of my list for university, followed by Bristol. I had never in my life even considered applying to Oxford or Cambridge. At all.

My head of Sixth Form came and spoke to me and said that a student from Cambridge was coming in to school to speak to students about studying at Oxbridge and he thought I should go. I said I really wasn't interested; I didn't know anything about the universities, I was 100% sure I wasn't smart enough, posh enough or just good enough to even consider …

Challenging a Holy Grail

It's probably a bit strange that my first blog post in a while is a foundation/makeup thing. It really has been a while since I've done anything like this because, let's be honest, anybody reading this is likely 100x more experienced and knowledgable about makeup than I am after spending the year rarely wearing it.

However, when I look online, I struggle to find foundation recommendations for people with similar skin to mine so I thought this might be of some use.

I have very fair skin so struggle to find anything from high street makeup brands (and high end most of the time) that's the right shade as my skin, despite being pale, doesn't particularly have pink undertones, which most foundations at the lighter end of the shade range tend to have.

The only foundation that I tend to buy other than the MAC Studio Fix fluid in NW10 (a tad too dark but good for going out) is the Revlon Colorstay Normal/Dry in 110 Ivory. When I first started to use this foundation, I used…
