The Abyss – a black smokey eye makeup look

This look was inspired by An Kook on YouTube, and Desi Perkins.

It was my first time doing a black smokey eye, and I was really happy with how it turned out, especially as a first-time thing. I think it looked better in real life than it did on camera.

Favorite Summer Glow: Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette in “Naked”

For my birthday, back in June, my sister gifted me the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette, and it was then that I understood what love is. Kind of.

The palette contains a blush, bronzer, and highlighter. All three are in powder form. It is now available in 4 different shade ranges, though the one I have is the original version, Naked.

Urban Decay claims:


Bronze. Glow. Blush. Get Naked and FLUSHED in no time with our hot (and highly coveted) threesome. Go ahead…get Naked and FLUSHED with our silky bronzer, highlighter and blush. These shades diffuse light as they enhance and perfect, giving your skin a fresh, glowy look—even when your late-night antics have you feeling otherwise. But how you get Naked is up to you. Use these SILKY pressed powders individually or blend them together to create just the right effect—and let this seemingly straight-laced trio morph into a tangled color love fest. Then bask in the radiant glow and let people wonder what you’ve been up to. Our micronized, jet-milled formula has a luxe, featherlight texture that feels amazing on your skin. The shades are intensely pigmented, yet they blend beautifully. And the finish? Flawless.
Naked (our original trio) contains medium-pink shades, Streak skews toward peachy/coral hues, Native is light pink-based, and Strip (the deepest of the four) has more of a mauve vibe. Not sure which one to choose? Each trio is versatile enough for any skin tone, so you can’t go wrong. Naked Flushed comes in a sleek case with an easy-open magnetic closure and a big mirror. It’s compact enough for travel or mid-date touchups, but don’t let that fool you. This might just be the biggest pan of product out there; the bronzer, highlighter and blush are all full-size on their own. Fill Weight: 14 g POIDS NET/NET WT. 0.49 oz
