Naked 3 Tutorial: Everyday Romantic

Hello Beautiful,

        I finally caved and purchased the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette!And I have to tell you, this palette is stunning!!! I will be writing a full review when I have thoroughly tested it, but until then, I came up with a quick and easy everyday tutorial using this palette. 

1- Take the shade Limit and apply all over lids. Focusing on the crease but not limited to it. 
2- Take shade Nooner on a pencil brush and apply to crease creating a 'V' shape on outer corner of lid.
3- Pack Mugshot on top of lid only, focusing on outer part of eye. 
4- Pack Strange on inner lid only. 
5- Taking a pencil brush, apply Nooner to lower lash line.
6- Apply winged liner and mascara to complete look. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this easy everyday eyeshadow look using the Naked 3 palette. 

Until next time...

Sunday Night Thoughts: The 'I like all types of girls' guy

Hello Beautiful,

     I am just sitting here on this boring Sunday night, in my self-preserving mask of magnanimity from lush I might add. I thought I would write a post regarding something maybe other ladies can relate to. I have this friend who I have known for about 2 years now and he is older. I will admit that when I first met him, I may have had a little crushy-crush because he seemed super sweet and we got along quite well.

Hello Beautiful, 

         Today I am going to give you a super easy and quick recipe for my current toner. When I say the words easy and quick, I mean it. This toner works best for oily or blemish prone skin types. Because it uses tea tree oil it works as an anti-bacterial to help fight new breakout and because it uses witch hazel it helps dry out the skin a bit and helps swelling to subside. 


  • I bottle of witch hazel (I purchased this 473 ml. bottle from Target for a mere $3 CAD)
  • 10 drops of pure 100% Tea Tree Oil (I purchased mine at whole foods for $8 CAD)

 All you need to do it drop 10 drops of tea tree oil in your bottle of witch hazel. Note: If you have extremely sensitive skin, then I suggest diluting this with distilled water.  Give er a shake and voila! You very own homemade toner! I usually apply this with a cotton round after washing my face and follow up with a moisturizer and eye cream. I find this really helps to keep my acne at bay and under control. It is also natural which is also a bonus. I hope you enjoyed this quick post and let me know if you give it a try.

Until Next Time...

Hello Beautiful Friends,

          I am back today with a little rant about what's been going on in my life and what is next for me, The Pretty Pauper. I know I do indeed have some loyal readers out there who love what I post and the content I provide, so I feel like I owe it to these guys. 

           The last month or so has been incredibly difficult and trying to deal has proved to be next to impossible. Let me explain...
