Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette Review!

I first saw the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette and kind of laughed at the clever name. Then, I took a look at it and soon realized that it looked like a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. So, because I already have a naked palette and these colors looked nice I thought I’d try this one out and save an extra $30 for the next Naked palette, because we all knew that of course there would be a next one- it has recently come out, the “Smoky”
palette.I purchased the palette from my local grocery store which also sells some cosmetics and immediately searched for tutorials. One beauty guru whom I admire in particular came up and I instantly clicked on her tutorial, it was Alisonlovesjb. I have been a fan of her for years and while I loved her take on the Blushed Nudes, she also had some helpful tips. One of them that really stuck with me was that when using a lighter, more shimmery shade in the top section to use a patting technique rather than a sweeping motion so that you get a more pigmented look from those shades. I found this very helpful as I first used it and she was correct that the top shades are extremely sheer at first, so you do want to build them up a bit on the brush and use the patting technique. Of course, if you are not really one for tutorials then you can always look on the back and find some simple ideas and instructions showing you which colors would look best together. My personal favorite color combinations are the light pink and grey colors, being on the top section of the palette in the very middle next to each other, pink going on first and more towards the brow in the crease, and grey going on the lid just bye the lash line. This combo is subtle, yet still sweet and girly. Another one that is a bit more colorful is a combination of the very last two colors on the bottom section of the palette all the way to the right hand corner. I would describe these two colors as a dark rose gold and the last being somewhat of a light burgundy/brown. The rose gold color going on first and the burgundy/brown color going on last. This combo is really fun and playful and is a bit of a twist on the classic smokey eye. It’s perfect for a night out or a party!

Overall, I am very impressed with this product, another Maybelline favorite.

   
 

Style Spotlight: Star Wars

Star Wars. For some, just the name is everything they live for, and for others such as myself they are not new to the name, yet not an expert on the franchise. Today I got to go to the Star Wars exhibit at the EMP in Seattle, Washington titled, “Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume”.
The exhibit showcased some of the costumes from the most iconic characters of all time. They were presented through nine “chapters”- Introduction: Dressing a galaxy; Jedi versus Sith: Form, Function, and Design; Concept and Design for Royalty and Beyond; Symbolism and Military Power; Outlaws and Outsiders; All Corners of the Galaxy: The Galactic Senate; After the Throne: Padame’s Journey; Darth Vader: Iconic Villan; and Droid Design: C-3PO and R2-D2.
The regal dresses of Queen Padame were stunning, and seeing Darth Vader in all his black glory was amazing. I do have to give Darth Vader some credit, you know what they say, black never goes out of style!
Pictured here is a multitude of early concept art, inspiration, and some unique sketches of original costume ideas along with a quote,
“In order to create a future, we looked into the past and drew inspiration from history and nature in order to give our fictional creations a realistic foundation.”

Very First Post!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Chloe, and I was inspired by a friend of mine to start my very own fashion blog! A little bit about me, I am 16 years old and I love fashion. Fashion has always been a huge part of my life! Ever since I was really little, I loved picking out my own outfits. Now as I’m in high school, I still express myself as an individual using my style and flair as an outlet.
