Make Me Up, With Naked THREE-EEE

Morning, friends! Today I have a video treat for you. Okay, it's not really a treat, it's just me talking about make up. And me talking is a treat? No. Well drat. Here's a video of me putting on my make up face. #sweetscreengrab

A few things:

+ I say the word SO My Communications Studies professor would be incredibly disappointing.

+ Holy shiny batman. Where is Ramona with the powder? #myfriendscantbeshinyontv

+ Forgive the misspeak. I'm cringing over #specialer.

+ Is the music too loud? I can't tell, but I hate silence on videos. Am I weird?

+ I did not end up going out with my friend, due to extenuating circumstances, so I looked beautiful around my apartment all by myself. #makeupfaceforbenandjerry #mycleanapartmentlikedmyprettyface

Moving on to products used...

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette: Love, love, love this palette. I believe it is 100% worth the $50 price tag, both for the quality and the quantity of the different eye shadows. There are so many different looks you can create with the range of pinks and browns and even though I have my set look I still enjoy experimenting. If you're on the fence about this palette, please use this post to push you over to the side of yes. I promise, you will LOVE IT!

ELF BB Cream: This is a new to me product and so far it's been just okay. The squirt applicator isn't really working for me so that's definitely a minus. I will say the coverage is pretty good though and I don't find it heavy. I'll let y'all know more once I've used it for longer than a few days.

ELF Pore-less Face Primer: Y'all, I've only had this product three days but I la-la-la-love it. It goes on super smooth and feels super light and the $6 price tag is pretty hard to beat. Thanks again to Biana for the suggestion :)!

ELF Mineral Eye Shadow in Celebrity [No longer available on the website. *Here is something similar*]: I bought this product YEAAAAAAAARS ago during an ELF 10 for $10 promotion. Honestly, this the ONLY shadow I still use and thankfully bought two of them during the promo. I love a nice, soft shimmer and this product 100% delivers.

Artistry Eye Pencil: As mentioned in the video, my mother sells Artistry products so if you're interested let me know. I've used this eye liner for a long time and enjoy having a smudge sponge on the end quite useful. I almost always line my eyes in black, but sometimes will use brown for a more naturalesque look.

Artistry Mascara: Y'all heard my love of this mascara and it is now the only mascara I use [except for a travel emergency brand]. The wand elongates my lashes and I find it gives just enough plump.

And that's all folks. What do you think? If you have any questions or comments please let me know. I highly doubt make up will become a *THING* here, but if I decide to do another video I'd love to know what you liked/didn't like. Do you have the Naked 3 palette or another Naked? What are your favorite colors?

  7. You're adorable! I love hearing people's voices in their videos, it's so fun! And the music selection/volume was on point!
    I'm gonna have to try that ELF Poreless Primer! I used to use their original primer and I really liked it a lot. I have the original Naked pallet and I looooove it. It's basically the only one I ever use.

  8. ooooh definitely gonna check out the elf poreless primer! thanks for the rec girl. you are hilarious and so adorable, i hate silence in videos as well. i have the naked 3 as well, absolutely love it. i'll have to try your look!

  9. i love hearing blogger's voices! i see so many pictures of those i follow and i wonder what their voice is like. you are too adorable!! also, you have a great video voice. i sound like something crawled down my throat and died so i never video get caught on video LOL

  10. Aww, I loved this! It's always so fun to get to put a voice to the face :) You looked fabulous as well, even if it was just for B&J! Can't wait for tomorrow!!

  12. If I drank whiskey while putting on makeup - whoooo - that'd be a new look, for sure :)

    Love the tips - I didn't know about the shimmer. & I too would do the creases after the overall covered lid! Good to know!!

    I love the colors of that palette ... I'm going to have that to my wish list!

  13. LOL I put my makeup on at red lights too! and then finish up in the parking lot before I go into work. Why I can never seem to wake up early enough to just do it at home I do not know. LOVE the look, so pretty!

  14. Red lights are for eyebrow plucking lol. Thank you for the honest reviews; e.l.f. products are always pretty reliable so I'm glad to hear that's still the case. I need to look into that primer (holy shininess year round!).

  15. You go girl! You're such a natural on camera. loved your tutorial that palette is one of my all time favorites. You can achieve so many great looks from it and yours was very pretty! xo

  16. Yay I love this video! You are so cool and collected in front of the camera... I would be so nervous and stuttering away. I am a huge Naked palette fan and love to watch how other people use theirs to create beautiful looks! I am glad you recommend the ELF poreless primer. I have been looking for a good primer for a while because I had the Maybelline one, but really wasn't wowed by it! Really happy you made this video! Also, I laughed out loud when you said you did makeup at red lights!!

  17. You did a great job and a natural at vlogging. Blame specialer on the whiskey! Too funny!

  18. Gah I want the Naked palette! My birthday is next week so maybe it will show up :)

  19. I love this, you did an awesome job!!!

  20. You are so stinking cute. I need a new Naked palette stat. Can't wait for tomorrow!
