WHY I DECIDED TO BUY ANOTHER URBAN DECAY PALETTE 

Well lets all say that some of us are  a little bit over it with the cool toned naked palettes. But for me  I am just getting started. Recently  to bought another naked palettes. The one thing that always draws me to them is the pigmentation that is amazing as a woman of colour.  though i must say they are a little bit pricey lets say £39 for a pallet.

This has come to me as someone who loves the Morphe palettes ( which are about £22  quiet a reasonable price)  this comes with experience after owning the 35W Morphe pallet, I love the way the pallet looks and the colours make me feel so excited. However, I I must say that the pigmentation is not so strong on my skin and it doesn’t show up on my eye lids when applied. I bought this pallet because of the hype by Youtubers, Instagram and  Bloggers favourite pallet but to my surprise it is not the greatest I must say however, it is nice and blendable.

Enough with the Morphe palettes let’s go back to the Naked Heat Pallet. When this palette came out I saw a lot of Youtubers talking about it and how they think it is not the best . But there are some good reviews and nice tutorials that are far more amazing.

The new Naked Heat Pallets smells of fire and looks like fire this is a combination of both matte and shimmers,  so you have  all of them in one  12 shade complete palette which to me seems amazing I love this idea.

This pallet just on the eye  looks so amazing, the formula is so amazing and I love every thing about it. However, the only thing I  would change about this palette are the first two colours that is OUNCE,& CHASER. These two shades are way too shy on my skin and would make me look like, a newly baked cake with unfinished touches. But Dam this is a can’t live without palette for sure from mattes to shimmers and the red-brown under tones makes this so hot for this summer even though they are neutrals they make everything about them special. With these shades you can create a day time look and also a night-time look at the same time. This pallet looks great on every skin tone I did a swatch on my hand and it turned out great. I have not seen any fall out from this palette as it contains one of the major ingredients Talc.

This is a swatch I did on my hand to show you how, and why I love this palette.

As you can see the swatches looked good on my skin and the ashness is from  the two shadows.

I would highly recommend everyone to go get yourself one of these even though they are a little bit pricey but worth it. You can get them from your nearest drug store in the UK and in the USA i would say department store.

Tell me if any of you have done any swatches in store or have bought this palettes.

HOW TO WEAR HEELS EVERYDAY

Uncategorized

Wearing heels everyday is not a thing that appeals to anyone based on various reasons. some girls feel the need to only wear heels when they are going out on special occasions and to me this seems like  waste to the importance of heels.

The reason as to why I decided to bring up this topic was because I was faced with a situation were I had to wear heels for three days straight and  did not have enough money to spend around buying another pair of shoes. So I had no choice  but to walk around London with these particular  High heel shoes.

Well I learnt so much and I experienced so much wearing heels for three days straight, and touring around London to see places without getting on the bus at any point. This was bloody exhausting but let  me tell you something i did not feel any pain or discomfort at all. This  is what I learnt from the picture above I took  in Camden Town on day 3 of my trip. Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

  1. If you wish to wear heels daily the first thing to consider is the; type of heel well from what  I  know there  are chunky heels , pumps, wedges, cone heels and so much more . So when choosing a heel make sure you choose the heel that holds firmly to ground and does not “wamble” as you walk. Not matter the heel if u feel it holds then yes it is the right shoes.
  2. Choose comfort over style. Okay when I choose these particular heels as you can see they are not the fanciest, nor are they the best looking sandals but one thing I  can say is the are damn comfortable.
  3. Choose the right size with a little bit of room left. I for one always bought shoes that fit to my size exactly,  but after some time I learnt that some shoes need a bit pf room to let air   go through  and reduce the pressure , cool down the so cold “pain”.
  4. When wearing heels mind your step, avoid areas that will make the heel of your shoe sink and drown rather than floating whilst walking with confidence.
  5. Before you buy any heels practice in the store,  walk around as much as you can and see if they are sustainable.
  6. One weird tip is that walk with confidence and try not to think about the pain you might be feeling and keep walking. I know it  sounds weird but yes this works as well, trust me
  7. The last tip is make sure you message your fit at the end of the day to allow your feet to relax and calm down from the long day, so that you have more energy to walk again like a pro.

Well those are my tips and ways you can wear heels everyday with confidence from an experience that I think will  try again.

if you have got any tips please feel free to comment and let me know .
