Urban Decay Naked Palette Dupe Perfection.

(Forever21 Love & Beauty Natural Palette)

(Urban Decay Naked Palette)

How many times have you walked into Sephora or Ulta and say the most beautiful palette ever with the most pigments smooth colors, and just when you pick that beauty up to see if its worth your purchase you see its $50 bucks and your broke little heart just breaks into a million pieces? Well for me its happened to many times. Being a jobless high school senior who is soon entering being a broke college student buying makeup isn’t a priorty, but I do have a bit of an addiction and I’m always buying it! Over time it racks up a pretty good amount, so when I saw the Urban Decay Naked Palette for the first time about a year or so ago I HAD TO HAVE IT, but of course never got it. Just when I was going to give in, I found this Forever21 “dupe version” of the naked palette & really feel in love. Not only because it pretty much had the exactly same colors ( (except creep & gun metal, but no biggie) as urban decay did but also because it was only $7!

Pink Hair. Don’t Care.

(<– Yup, I gave into it too!)

It seems like everybody and their mothers is dying their hair. Dip dye hair has been very “in” lately. It’s one of those trends that I know is going to come and go, but as it is here its getting alot of attention from Hollywood and from little ole blogger like me. I love how looking like a punk my little pony is  totally acceptable now, I really do. Most people wouldn’t want their hair to look anything but natural, but heck you only live once and this trend is as semi-permanent as the dye. Celebration like Lauren Conrad, Katy Perry, and of course Lady Gaga have gave in to this dip dye craze, and recently so have I. I absolutely love it, I feel like I need a safety pink vest and matching pink over sized cardigan to complete my vibrant girly but punk hair.

How to dip dye:

1. take a bleaching kit and bleach the ends of your hair, this usually takes 30 minutes to and hour depending on how dark your hair is

2. after bleaching your hair let it air dry (heat absolutely can not be applied to freshly bleach hair) until its damp so the color can stick

Now there are a couple ways you can dip dye but the way I did it was with food coloring:

1. mix the food coloring of your desired “dip dye color” with white deep conditioner until your color is exactly how you want it

2. seperate you hair so you can apply a thick layer of the color to your hair

3. let it sit for 1 to 2 hours (depending on how long you want the color to remain in your hair)

Oh , pointy.

I have been obsessed with spikes, studs, or pretty much anything that looks like it could  put a puncture in the skin I’ve been oddly really into it lately. Companies like The Ragged Priest, Jeffery Campble, and even Christian Louboution have completely understood the concept this “beauty is pain” look.  The minute I saw one of my favorite youtube gurus NiaSays rocking a denim jacket with silver serious spiked studs literally covering her shoulders, like she was some sort of fashion football player, or untouchable modern female  warrior I died a little bit on the inside. A couple weeks later I saw them….Christian Louboution spiked smoking slippers., which may I add are $1900 but they are soooo beautiful I know I must get them someday.
