Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette Look

There are so many incredible eyeshadow palettes coming out and the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette is definitely one of my favourites. The range of light to mid tone neutrals is utter perfection. Don't get boxed into the thought that this palette is only suitable for creating Gwen's signature look like her softly defined neutral eye with dramatic winged liner and a red lip. This palette is actually incredibly flexible and you can create a huge variety of looks ranging from neutral and natural, to smoky and dramatic. Below is

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Are you ready? The Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette ($58 US/$70 CAD) is launching November 22nd on and and will launch at other UD retailers, like Sephora, on December 1st. I am so excited about this collaboration because Gwen is such a beauty and style icon and inspiration, and her partnership with Urban Decay is a match made in heaven. Gwen was very much a part of every step of the process designing this palette, including the absolutely stunning packaging. The palette was inspired by her love of

Urban Decay Vice Look

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Look

I have not been sharing enough looks with you lately. That is going to change! I think I was feeling in a bit of a rut since, because I work from home and live in a very rural area, I rarely leave the house or have occasion to do my makeup. Well screw it. I need to get back to having fun with creating looks beyond just utilitarian testing of products. Even if I'm not going anywhere. The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette is a true inspiration to play so I'm sure this won't be the first look I share featuring these beautiful eyeshadows.

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

I think the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette ($ US/$ CAD) has my absolute favourite Urban Decay packaging yet. Actually it is probably one of my overall beauty product packaging faves. It is so, so gorgeous. Pictures can't do it justice. Whoever came up with this design deserves some serious props! The palette features a dimensional web of facets that shift in colour thanks to an oil slick effect metallic finish. It is so freakin cool. It comes with a zippered makeup bag that you can store the palette in, or use separately, that has

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in Lit Review

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body in Lit ($30 US/$35 CAD) is described as a soft bronze shimmer with golden bronze sparkle. It comes in a beautiful sparkling bronze box. I love this packaging! It is so pretty, albeit a little bulky. The domed powder is on the top level with a mirror on the inside of the lid. The lower compartment hides a mini brush. Everything secures with magnetic closures. The powder has a dry feel but has a good level of pigmentation and applies smoothly. It is

Urban Decay Brow Beater and Brow Tamer in Taupe | My New Go To Brow Routine

I have very sad eyebrows. Fair, sparse, and thin. They require a lot of help. That said, I still like them to look natural. Not too perfect, fuller but still a little messy. I love layering brow products to give my brows more dimension and make their filling in a little less obvious. My new go to brow routine consists of two new brow products from Urban Decay. The Urban Decay Brow Beater Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush ($24 CAD) is fabulous. Teeny twist up brow pencils like these are always my favourites. The tiny point makes

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette Review, Swatches, and Looks

The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette ($64 CAD/$54 US) is a palette that includes everything you need to create so many different smoky eye looks, and even some tame ones as well. The packaging for Naked Smoky is my favourite of all the Naked Palettes. The palette has a floating smoke pattern with the lettering in gunmetal foil. Even the back of the palette is cool. The transparent smoky plastic allows you to see through to the pans and brush within. The magnetic closure palette  feels very secure and sturdy. Open the palette

Summer Makeup Look

Summer Wedding Makeup Look

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing our favourite Summer Wedding Makeup Look. This look will look equally beautiful on a wedding guest as it would the bride. Most of the summer weddings I attend are outdoor affairs. You want to look fresh, polished, and pretty all while surviving the heat and humidity. Plus you want to look as good on that dance floor late into the night as you do many, many hours earlier during the ceremony. My go to summer wedding look usually revolves around accentuating my blue eyes with warm browns
