Wet n Wild Au Naturel Palette Review

Hello beauties! I hope your summer is fabulous so far and all that you’d hoped for. I’ve been spending a little too much time perusing the makeup aisles at the drugstore and therefore spending a little too much on makeup. Thank you makeup vloggers who get me to buy everything you tell me to! (I still love you) 😉 💄

When I saw the Wet n Wild Au Naturel palette at my local Drugstore I thought, “At that price how could I go wrong?” Plus I had Extra Bucks at CVS so I mean…😩😩😩

I’m certainly glad with my purchase although I am partial to warm tones and this palette contains several colors with cool and neutral undertones. Regardless, for the price, quality, pigmentation & blendability, it is definitely worth purchasing.

I did a mauvey smoky eye with it easily in under 15 mins.

As a base I used color #1 as shown above. In the crease I used #7. To deepen the crease I used #8. To highlight the brow bone I used the lightest shimmer shade in Wet n Wild’s Comfort Zone palette. (shown below) On the entire lid I used #2 & #6 from this palette.

For foundation I used Wet n Wild’s Photo Focus foundation. For highlight & blush I Used Elf’s Santa Lucia palette. The lipstick I’m wearing is Nyx’s Lip Lingerie in Bustier. (Shown below) If you have any questions, leave me a comment!

Overall I love pink & mauvey tones, so I was not dissappointed. My only criticism is I wish there were a few more matte shades / crease shades. I give it a 9 out of 10. 

😊💄✨

Hope you enjoyed this review!

What are your thoughts? Have you bought this palette? Would you? 

Love,

Maggie in the Moon

Current Color Mood: Yellow

Sunny happy yellow is cropping up everywhere & I’m loving it for summer. Who says you can only wear yellow during the day? Wear it to go out, for a wedding, etc.

I’m also loving slit dresses. I love that it’s okay to be a little cheekier during the summer too.

5 Ways to Make Basic Clothing Items Un-Basic

Like you, I get tired of the same basic items in my closet, yet I like to be comfy at work and need those basic items. I also would like to avoid spending my whole paycheck every week to look on-trend. Here are 5 ways to upgrade the basic items in your closet:

Bodysuit + maxi skirt

From sustainablesiren.com

Muted tones tone down the sexiness while the shilouette keeps the look feminine & sexy. Gold layered necklaces would complement the look ideally.

Delicate,beautiful, gold layered necklace from Etsy.com

Simple staple bodysuit from Americanapparel.com

Jeans (any style) & a T-Shirt + mules 

Jeans will never get old, but after wearing the same pair to death, they can seem old and routine. Pair yours with a white or cheeky t-shirt and adorable pair of very fashion-forward mules.

Swap out your sneakers for mules.

Nastygal.com

They also have them in gold 😩💫

A leather jacket & banging sunglasses couldn’t hurt either. Cute outfit found on Pinterest.

Jean jacket + jean dress

Found on Aliexpress.com

From Topshop

I absolutely love denim on denim and I’m a firm believer the all-American material will never get old. Even when it does, it looks sexier, and denim on denim is a chic way to re-wear the jeans items in your closet. A bright lip and chic white sneakers can keep the look tidy and prevent it from being drab.

Does Cara Delevigne keep getting prettier or…? Living for this lip color. 💏

Utilitarian khaki + a pop of color

Kenzo runway

I love the utilitarian khaki cropping up on SS 2017 runways. You can add a bold lip or eye look as shown here as on the Kenzo runway, or pair a trench jacket with a bold colored dress, top, or pant. A pop of color from accessories like purses or shoes would be cute if you want to keep all clothing in the khaki or olive family.

I love the offbeat cuteness of this dress. Plus, let’s save the honey bees! 😊🐝🐝🐝 Extra Tip: Keeping the dress under the jacket in the same color family keeps you from looking like a clown. 😉 Yellow is also everywhere right now.

Sundress or slip Dress +Mesh top

 You love that sundress or slip dress you’ve worn a million times, but you can’t wear it again the same way right? That’s okay. Pair a cute on-trend mesh top like the one below by Urban Outfitters under it and you have a chic look for any night out.

Love Urban Outfitters’ mesh tops. 

Too too freaking cute. Love this look. Found on Pinterest.com

I hope you enjoyed this post & it gave you some summer outfit inspo.

Have a beautiful day!

5 Incredible Women That Inspire Me On the Daily

Hey beauties! I don’t know about you but I am so excited for the summer. I am off for the summer from one of my jobs so I’m happy to have more time to blog, draw, and write songs. I’ve come to realize if I’m not doing something creative, I’m really not happy inside. 

(I’m kind of in love with this swimsuit.From Cupshe. You can buy it on Amazon)

I love this too. Found on Pinterest. Not sure where to find it unfortunately.

Lately I’ve been embracing a few role models to situate/inspire myself and mold my life into what I want it to be. When I’m trying to get through a long day at work I think of these 10 women role models, and try to emulate then them in general:

When it comes out to style, positivity, & ambition:

Chiara Ferragni

I wouldn’t mind following Chiara’s footsteps at all. She’s a businesswoman, more than a blogger/influencer, and a style extraordinaire. I love her playful, girly, unexpected style. She breaks fashion rules effortlessly and makes her own along the way. Honestly she’s inimitable. 

In her own words,

“I’ve never tried too hard.” Love that.

When it comes to listening to your inner voice and not being afraid to speak the truth:
Maya Angelou

I’m forever in love with her poem “Still I Rise”:

"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt 

But still, like dust, I’ll rise…”

It’s so empowering. It’s a statement on not giving any of your precious time to haters and rising above your immediate circumstances. It’s truly amazing that Maya did, and how successfully she rose above the obstacles in her life,  which were many.

When it comes to creativity:

Frida Kahlo

Frida wasn’t afraid to be different and that’s what made her an amazing artist. She was really in touch with her pain and hardships and demonstrated that in her paintings. Painting was in fact her therapy in a way, and that’s what made her art so raw and beautiful.

When it comes to being a classy lady:
Coco Chanel

I love Coco Chanel’s approach to femininity. Always classic, beautiful, and simple, yet her designs are sexy in an unforgettable way. No one does timeless French fashion like Coco Chanel. When I think am I wearing too many accesories, or what to wear to an important event my mind always goes to Chanel for inspiration.

Mantras by Coco:

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

  1. 1 of 7I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.When it

      I want to live in Chanel’s iconic tweed suits when I get to be an old lady.

      When it comes to beauty (and following your heart/taking risks & getting over your fears): 

      Kathleen Lights (Kathleen Fuentes)

      This girl is my favorite YouTuber hands down. She’s sweet, funny, humble, and her personality reminds me of myself honestly. Maybe because we’re both Aquariuses. I can’t live without her Aquarius lippie collab with Colourpop by the way. The main reason I religiously watch her videos though is because the way she has overcome her anxiety and successfully battles it daily inspires me immensely. She went from being a shy unsure girl who made her first videos on a whim and a dream and became one of the most successful beauty Youtubers ever. I love her.
      Thanks for reading loves! Who inspires you? (Male or female, dead or alive)

      Love & good vibes being sent to all of you!! 🙂
