Dance Recital weekends are long, stressful,  and exhausting.... at least it gives me an excuse to play with my Naked 2 palette
Dance Recital weekends are long, stressful, and exhausting…. at least it gives me an excuse to play with my Naked 2 palette

This have been super busy for me this month.  I’ve been hoping to keep to a consistent posting schedule, but sometimes life gets in the way (stupid non-blog life).  For those of you that don’t know, I’ve been working part time at a dance studio, and this past weekend we had our annual dance recital.  It’s a busy week of rehearsals, and especially for me because I have students dancing, I’m dancing myself, and I MC the whole event.  So there are a lot of hats I have to wear… and since this years theme was Masquerade, I wore a lot of masks as well.  The morning of my dress rehearsal I watched a YouTube makeup tutorial from one of my favorite YouTubers, Desi Perkins.  She did a “sandwich” eyeshadow technique with gold and black shadows.  It inspired me to break out my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for the first time and play around.  Many of my costumes this year wear gold and black, so the shadow look worked perfectly.

Spent an hour on my makeup... such a shame to put a mask over it #DanceRecital #dancerprobs

If you’re already following me on Instagram, then you’ve already seen these pics, but if you’re not.. you totally should!

… and don’t forget to check out Desi’s videos, her makeup is on fleek… yes I said it!…. be sure to tell her I sent you!

    I LOVE the Naked 2 palette. I have the Naked 2 basics as well…I tend to opt for more cool shades like these. LOVE the sandwich look you created! Just lovely Sarah! 🙂

      Thanks so much! I was obsessed with the original Naked palette and the Naked 3, but I’m loving the 2.. haven’t tried the basics yet… I’ll have to check that out! I’m really excited for the Smokey palette, I hear it’s a lot of very cool shades!
