MusicUrban Decay’s New Roller Girl Palette

Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands and has been for years! When you are looking for top quality shadows that are pigmented in beautiful shades, Urban Decay is one of the best options! Always coming out with the perfect new palettes and gift sets, they really got my attention with the new set Roller Girl! Always the fan of 70′s nostalgia, I found Roller Girl to be perfectly packaged and filled with the best selection of goodies! Take a look below for some pics and more info!

Packed with four sultry and sweet shades, this palette will be able to take you from day to night easily. “Suspect” is a great shade to use all over the eyelid. Use “Darkhorse” in the crease and “Verve” on the brow bone to give some shimmer and highlight. “Woodstock” is your wild card in this group! Use it in the outer corner of the eye to create a pop of color! You can use a small amount or really layer it on for impact!

Complete with a perfect brown 24/7 Eye Pencil in “Whiskey” and a shimmering pink Lip Junkie Lipgloss! This is the perfect palette to toss in your purse or beachbag for quick touch ups before a night on the town or after a day of fun in the sun! Make sure to head over to Urban Decay for this palette and more!

BeautyThe Perfect Cat Eyeliner

Watching too many episodes of Mad Men has got me going retro, not only with the growing collection of vintage dresses and skirts in my closet, but with my beauty routine as well. Suddenly, I’m looking into modern-day spins on the beehive (blog post to come), bold red lips, and now, black-lined cat eyes.

The trick to the perfect cat eye is a steady hand, which many, like myself, lack when it comes to precision. So, practice a couple of times and have plenty of Q-tips and makeup remover nearby if you mess up.

Also, invest in a good quality eyeliner. There are many different forms to choose from, including liquid, pen and gel. If you’re first starting out, I’d opt for an easy-to-use pen, such as MAC’s Penultimate Eyeliner. After a couple weeks, you’ll feel more comfortable with gel and liquid and the intense pigment that they offer.

To start off your cat eye, make a flick (however long or short you want) from the outer corner of your eye and angling up. With your pen or brush, start from the inner most corner of your eye and carefully draw out and up to that flick, making the line thicker as you go.

With a few tries, you’ll be the cat’s MEOW!
