A Spring Bridal FOTD

A bride for a wedding I'm doing in April asked me to create a light pink-to-purple daytime smokey eye with a light pink, fleshy lip for her bridesmaids. Here's what I came up with! She loves the look, and I found a new springtime face! 

Novablush Foundation, Concealer, and Mascara
Maybelline Primer
Maybelline Bouncy Blush
Tarte's Mattenificent Palette
Coastal Scents 282 Color Palette
Lorac Unzipped
Anastasia Dipbrow in Chocolate
OCC's Lip Tar in Femme

My 20's inspired FOTD!

I took most of my inspiration from these two pictures. I absolutely adore Carey Mulligan, so it was a lot of fun to create a look from one of her FOTD's.

PSA: Dupe for Buzz from Naked 3

I have been searching long and hard for a dupe for Buzz from the new Naked 3 Palette by Urban Decay. As you can see from the picture above, Buzz is my favorite color, and a favorite thus far for many of the palette's owners. Because there haven't been a lot of rose gold palettes, there aren't many possibilities for dupes, but I've found one!

Normally, I have no interested in Ulta's brand name products, but being that I've already hit pan on this shade, I knew I needed to act fast, so I took one for the team. The shade is fittingly called "Rose Gold" and is a cream based shadow. 
The shade is $8 for a full container of it, and doesn't need a primer. In the picture above, the two colors are compared side by side on top of NYX's Milk Pencil for a primer. As you can see, Buzz is actually suffering from a lack of pigmentation again Rose Gold. The two colors are absolutely identical in shade. Rose Gold did have a difficult time blending against non-cream shadows, but nothing a little Maybelline Baby Skin on top couldn't fix. 

If I had to choose between spending $52 for another Naked 3 or spending $8 for Rose Gold, hands down I would go with Rose Gold.
