Urban Decay NAKED SMOKY!

*Sponsored Post
Urban Decay 'Naked' fans, get excited... the latest addition to the Naked palette family 'Naked Smoky' has finally arrived on UK shores and it's B-EAUT-iful! When I heard that Urban Decay were launching this, I have to admit I was a little sceptical about whether or not it would be for me as I am a neutral girl at heart and I thought that the previous Naked palettes covered all my bases, but when I saw this in person and swatched the shadows for myself, I changed my mind.
Before we get into the product itself, let's just take a moment to discuss the packaging...

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzers

I've had this bronzer for a couple of weeks now but wanted to really put it to the test before reviewing it. I love, love, love the powders and blushes in this range for their ability to add that 'glow from within' quality to the skin without using heavy shimmers or glitter, so was therefore really overexcited when I heard about the bronzers being released. 
First thing's first, these are definitely traditional 'bronzers' rather than a contour powders. They are really quite shimmery, so unsuitable for anything other than adding a glowing, tanned radiance to your complexion. They have the same 'photoluminescent' technology as the Ambient Lighting Powders, so have a gorgeous depth to them (unlike basic shimmers which sit on top of the skin and look really unnatural.)

Wedding Season: How to Make Your Makeup LAST!

Wedding season is upon us! I absolutely love weddings as it's an excuse to dress up and look your best, and since my wedding (almost 2 years ago now!) I just love seeing all the beautiful details that go into different weddings, and obviously everyone's outfits, makeup and hair! 
I've collaborated with the Beauty Recommended channel this week to show you three of my favourite up-do's for wedding season. They are all totally fool proof, so perfect if you aren't the best with hair styling but want to change up your look for a special occasion AND what's more... they all take about 5 minutes to do, so are perfect if you want to look polished without spending hours in front of the mirror!
