Must-Have Urban Decay Eye Shadows

So I've been thinking about it.. And I've come to realize. I'm a UD junkie. Seriously. I love their eyeshadows.... So much that if I could only use one brand of makeup it would be theirs - JUST because of those creamy, satin and glitter eyeshadows. They're beautiful! Don't believe me?

This Age Appropriate Makeup series is a new series I'm starting to help parents and girls of different ages figure out what they should wearing at certain ages.

How To Get Started With Makeup

What Makes Really Great Makeup?

  (Note: This post is really a... "how to get started") You want people to look at your makeup and think "wow". You want people you don't know to compliment your makeup. So what makes really great makeup? Two major things come to mind. Foundation and a smokey eye. You're probably thinking "Really?? You basically mean the entire face, and that doesn't help me", and no, that's not what I mean. You don't have to be amazing at bronzer or blush or even an expert with eye shadow.

7 Makeup Essentials to Pack for a Vacation

Okay, so this post is about makeup essentials, and when I say essentials, I mean it. Some girls like to get all dolled up every day of their vacation, but I am not one of them. Why? Because usually when you're on vacation you're doing your best to cram everything in that you can, and I think we can agree that running around plus makeup is just a bad combination.

Regardless of the price, if I could only have 7 items, this would have to be one of them. It works miracles! [click to continue ...]

I don't know why, but I just don't think they're really worth the cost for what they do. Maybe that means I just haven't tried the right ones yet. But if you are looking to invest in a foundation primer, I think this is the post for you. I've only tried a handful a primers, but here are the ones I have tried. Smashbox [click to continue ...]
