Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette And One & Done Foundation Review & GRWM

 

Hi guys!  In my latest video I review the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette and Naked Skin One & Done Foundation.  The Naked Smoky palette is perfection!  So versatile for both day and night eye looks. IMG_3090 2.jpgIn addition to creating fierce smoky eyes with both warm & cool tones, el natural looks are also a cinch to create with the matte & warm shades.  Another great thing about this palette is that it is organized by shadow textures: 4 mattes, 4 satins, & 4 metallics, all grouped accordingly.

This handy-dandy texture arrangement makes putting the look together so fast and easy! The doubled-ended brush contains a blending brush and smudge brush. The bristles are soft and I really love this brush (a rarity for me to like the brushes included in a palette! ūüėČ

The doubled-ended brush included in the Naked Smoky palette is soft with a smudger & blending brush.  ‚̧ it!!
For the smoky eye look created in my video, I used a combination of Smolder, Armor, & High (my fave metallic shade in the palette!), Password, & Combust.  The Smolder shade is a greyish-purple and my favorite shade in the palette.  Over the course of building the smokey eye in the video, Smolder made my eye color change from dark blue, to light grey, to green. What the!?!!! Makeup is magic!!!  I paired the eye look with a bright berry lip with NYX’s Butter Lipstick in the shade Thunderstorm.  Loved how the look turned out and hope you do too!  The Naked Skin One & Done Foundation is a light and gorgeous on the skin.

Urban Decay One & Foundation provides the your-skin-but-better look, and the Naked Smoky palette offers options for both day & night eye looks.  Win-Win!
I could be wrong by calling it a foundation (might be considered a BB Cream?).  Either way, I love it.  It has a thin, light texture and gives my skin the your-skin-but-better look.  I found that applying it with fingers is the best way to apply it.  Applying with a brush just feathers the product away.  Also, I loved that I could build the coverage up.  The best part about this foundation is its skin care benefits.  Love that it has peptides in it!  Also, it lasted all day and night without moving, and at the very end of the day my skin felt SO soft.  No exaggeration here: no other foundation in all of my life has ever made my skin feel so soft.  This foundation/bb cream will come in super handy in the summer too!  I’ve been wearing the palette & foundation a lot since Christmas. What are your thoughts on the Smoky palette and One & Done Foundation?  I would love to hear them. Hope you enjoy this review video! Happy New Year, my loves!!  ‚̧ ‚̧ ~Kelle

Lorac Enchanting Elegance & Refined Romance Palettes Review & GRWM

Hello, my loves!! In this video, I review and swatch Lorac’s Enchanting Elegance and Refined Romance palettes, both palettes inspired by the runway! I also do a GRWM Victorian romance type look with the Enchanting Elegance palette.

Lorac’s Enchanting Elegance Palette comes with 4 matte & 2 satin eyeshadows, 1 highlighters, & 2 blushes ( a muave blush & a pretty bright pink blush | Kelley Whilden

For this Victorian Romance look, I went with a pale skin with pop of pink cheeks look, glossy wine lips, & satin eyes. The Enchanting Elegance palette was so perfect for creating this particular makeup look.  Thanksgiving is approaching and I think it is a soft and pretty look for the holidays.

Included in the Enchanting Elegance palettes are 2 satin & 4 matte shadows, 1 highlighter, and 2 blushes. Lorac’s¬†Refined Romance Palette comes with 4 satin and 2 matte eyeshadows, 2 highlighters, and 1 blush. ¬† If you are more into matte¬†eyeshadows, the Enchanting Elegance palette might be a better option for you as you do receive more matte shades¬†with this palette. ¬†If you are¬†a highlighter person, the Refined Romance comes with 2 highlighters, rather than just the one highlighter included in the Enchanting Elegance palette.

The eyeshadows apply and blend beautifully with the smooth textures we know and love from Lorac.  The eyeshadow color schemes are gorgeousssss.  The Enchanted Elegance palette offers more options for smoky eye looks as compared to the Refined Romance palette.

If you are more of a natural makeup or neutrals person, the Refined Romance offers very soft and natural shade selections for soft and/or natural makeup looks.  This palette is fantastic for a one-stop daytime makeup shop!

Weekend Vlog & EODM Concert Look

Hi guys!  I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend!  In this weekend vlog I share my weekend routine and also do a GRWM of the look I wore to the EODM / 95.5 KLOS concert on Saturday, at The Regent Theatre L.A. The eye look I wore was very warm and fall appropriate, despite our L.A. heatwave, ha! In case you are not familiar with EODM music

(and loveeeee rock ‘n roll), here is a link to their youtube channel: youtube.com/eodmofficial. You have probably heard them in lots of Cherry Coca-Cola commercials ūüôā ¬†For the concert look, I used my Wet N Wild Desert Festival Palette & Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette to achieve the warm eye look. ¬†I finished the look with some mauve-nude lips with two of my favorite NYX shades in Root Beer Float & Sandy Kiss. ¬†An EODM rock concert would not be the same without rockin some spiked Kurt Geiger boots! ¬†My loves, before it’s too late:

Day or Night Drugstore Makeup Look | GRWM

Okay guys, as requested here is a GRWM vid of one of my all-time favorite drugstore makeup looks, as well as my current hair routine.  I like to wear this makeup look lightly for daytime and amped up at night.  Also love wearing this look without mascara sometimes. How in TARNATION this vid is 35 min long is beyond me! lol.  I also had a few flubs with my mascara that I ended up just turning into a smokier liner for night.

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette | Any look can be created with this palette!  

The Wet N Wild duochrome shadow in the Comfort Zone palette is what really makes this look. This palette has been a holy grail for eons! ¬†My go-to is pairing it with a peachy cheek, as the tones work nicely together. For day, I normally wear a natural gloss on my lips with this look, but for night, I mixed the Milani’s “Nude Creme” & Wet N Wild’s “Within These Adobe Walls” lipstick shades to finish the makeup look. For my hair, I added

Pacifica Hairvana Leave-In Conditioner

Pacifica’s Hairvana Leave-In Conditioner and Native Flower hair Oil to give it some body and sheen while it air dried during the video. ¬†Pacifica haircare products have uber nourishing ingredients for my course hair. ¬†I especially love Hairvana’s coconut scent! ¬†My¬†hair dries in lightning speed, so I almost neva blow dry it. ¬†I just twist it, & wrap it into a low bun, and then remove bun for heat-free waves. Hope you guys enjoy this look! ¬†Please be sure to like & subscribe to my channel for more beauty, fashion, & style videos! :_))))) XO ~Kelle
