UD Naked2 Basics

So versatile you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it, Naked2 Basics is the kind of palette you’ll reach for again and again. Every shade in Naked2 Basics features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

When UD junkies cried out for a palette of matte neutrals, Naked Basics delivered—and left them begging for MORE shades. (And we couldn’t deny them!)

Cooler in tone than the original, Naked2 Basics complements Naked2 perfectly. We loaded this indispensable palette with six TAUPE-hued matte neutrals, including five never-before-seen shades. These shadows are neutral enough for anyone, from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin.

While many brands’ matte shadows tend to be chalky or powdery, EVERY shade in Naked2 Basics has a rich, buttery feel for the perfect application. It even includes one shade with a slight satin finish, Skimp, that’s ideal for highlighting and adding dimension.

Like the original, Naked2 Basics comes in a sleek, soft-touch case that has a suede-like feel and a slight sheen. It’s small and compact so it travels well, yet we still packed it with six FULL-size shadows.

What You Get: Skimp (pale nude satin), Stark (nude-pink matte), Frisk (warm gray matte), Cover (muted red-brown matte), Primal (muted brown matte) and Undone (deep, smoky brown matte).

Live Learn Grow…

These are words I’ve carried with me often through my life. Things will not always go as planned in life, this is almost a guarantee. Oh how i have made so many mistakes in life and yet I am perfectly happy now. Live and learn. Of course i look back some times and realize, “What the heck was I thinking?” This is so normal, because you have learned from getting burned (so to speak). One awesome thing i have learned that has contributed to my happiness is expectations of people and standards. If you have expectations (and you know you will set them higher than a kite) most likely you will be let down. Its not really for us to expect things to be a certain way. Life is unpredictable and people are too. Don’t set yourself up for failure. Instead, have standards. Standards are set by you, what you will allow and can you really blame anyone if you don’t set the standards of how you want things to be? You and only you can make yourself happy. Think about how you want things to be and set yourself some standards. Quit having all these expectations and live a little. We tend to grow by learning what works for us and what doesn’t. Also things that may have worked for us in the past wont be so appealing due to our growth and maturity and that’s us learning. Make your life how you want it to be and you will be happier. Love yourself a little more… Cz

There is HOPE

This picture says so much to me. It reminds me what a huge universe we have, how big the world is and all of it remains in the palm of our hands. We make choices and decisions that change our lives. We make good choices and bad choices at times. We also have the ability and power within ourself to change the way things are in our life at any time. You can start today or next week and some of us have already started but the choice is there. I’m not saying it’s gonna be easy but start by putting things into perspective and simplifying your life. Stop taking on everyone else’s things until you manage to get your world under control… Take things one day at a time until things look brighter. You cannot conquer it in one day. That’s where the hope and faith comes in. See the life you want and make it happen. Faith and hope have brought me along way so I know it’s possible. If you can only see a dead end that is what you will get… If you can see your goals and dreams coupled with faith and hope you will find a way. I wish you the best 🙂 YOU CAN DO THIS 🙂 Cz

Violetta!!!

I picked up violetta from the Mac store yesterday. It is a pro finish (amplified), so beautiful and vibrant. What a beautiful summer color. It is a permanent pro shade and apparently came out in Mac Venomous Villains collection a while back. Perfect summer color.

Some peace for you…

Take a few moments out of each day for some peace of mind. The day can fill up quickly with things do to at work, appointments, friends, Facebook, blogging, talking on the phone, children, etc… So take one break a day for yourself to start off with, be with yourself. It has made such a difference in my world. I actually take a break or lunch with myself everyday and it has made such a difference 🙂 I even started taking days to myself and I believe it has calmed my storm. We are always doing for other people so taking time to yourself is very productive. Mee is the title I put into the calendar subject when it is my time out lol. Here is hoping that this gives you some peace in your world even if it’s for a moment 🙂 Cz

Maybelline Leather Color 24hr Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline’s Leather Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow

I really love these more than any other color tattoos I’ve had to date. These are very matte and I use the brown, black ones as eyeliner and to tight line. They truly last the 24 hours and are very blendable 🙂

Enjoy your life :)

Enjoy Life_19Sometimes we all take this life too serious. Especially the ones who do not put down their tech devices. Now this may seem weird coming from me because of all the latest I have but I have this thing called disconnect. It’s something I must do to reconnect with nature, people, relationships and an abundance of simple things that mean more to my soul that the greatest tech gift any can give. Another reason why I do it is for my time. I wanted to gain back control of my time not the tech gadgets and social media controlling my every waking moment. It’s funny because its exciting to have such knowledge of everything and everyone and yet, its a curse because it steals your joy and time. I am very much involved with social media, gaming, networking and all the perks that go along with it. My time is my time and we all do what we want with our time. I’d just like to be more productive with my soul and humanity. We get one life so choose things that make you happy inside. Sometimes its not to easy to figure out what actually makes you the happiest inside. If I start getting a bit frayed inside or edgy I just sit down with a good book next to water, trees, and sand. Getting back to nature, walking and just slowing down in general really gives me the reset I need. If you have any ideas or things that work for you, please comment below and let me know. I’d love to hear 🙂
