My daughter Olivia dresses better than me nowadays. I always enjoy taking  her outfit-of-the-day  pictures than mine ,  but since mine is basically sweater, jeans and boots nowadays. I'm out of the scene. It has been freezing cold and so many snow storms that I ever encountered , it just makes me feel fashionably lazy. Good thing I have a cute little doll that I could released my sartorial creativity.

Everyday Eye Make Up Look with Urban Decay (NAKED 1 )




Hi my lovelies ! Today I just want to share with you an everyday eye make up look or shall I call it the "mommy look ".since I don't have a lot of time  to play around with eye shadows because I'm always in a rush in getting ready ,unless if there is a special event where I will try to squeeze in my schedule on spending a lot more time infront of the mirror, but with an "everyday look " like going to the mall, lunch with family/friends or sometimes errands. I stick with the basic and the " fresh look " . It took me less than 5 minutes.
I'm sure most of you have your own  version of an everyday eye make up look but I just want to share with you what shades  i used with Urban Decay Naked 1 eye palette to achieve this everyday eye make up look. Before I start with the step by step instruction. I want to give you my honest review about this Urban Decay Naked 1.
1) First off, I love the shades of  this palette as compared to Naked 2 since it has a lot of warm shades   (gold,browns and neutrals ) . In my opinion ,if you compare them next to each other they don't have that big of a difference. So i skip on the Naked 2 ,besides I don't do very dark smokey eye make up anyway.  I have a warm skintone, very tan and I think Naked 1 suits me better. On the other hand , about 3 months ago Urban decay  released Naked 3,  its  totally different from the previous two. It has more pink hues, a very feminine and romantic palette. I love it and its a promising purchase prospect for me.
 2) Pigmented and blendable - they are highly pigmented and so easy to blend.
 3) Different looks - you can achieved different looks with this palette from everyday  to a glam look. Get creative and play around with these eyeshadows.
4) Stays longer specially if you use their Urban decay eye primer . If you want your eye make up to stay all day, you got to have an eye primer.

Step by step instruction to achieved an everyday eye make up look using Urban Decay NAKED :



Prime - Im using Urban Decay eye primer to prime. I apply  it on my eyelid. The importance of a primer is that it will make your eye shadows stays longer, easier to blend and reduce the appearance of crease lines.



Find your crease line and use the shade TOASTED. Apply it from outer corner of your crease  all the way the center part of your crease line. Don't rub it back and fort, start from the outer to the  inside



I used SIN on the eyelid including the inner corner of the eye


I used HUSTLE on the outer corner of the eye


Blend it from the outer corner of the eye all the way to the center


I used NAKED on the brow bone to highlight the eyebrows


I used SIN to line from the inner corner all the way to the middle of the lower eyelid. I do this to make my eyes look bigger.


I used DARKHORSE to line my lower eyelid from the middle all the way to the corner.


I finish it up with an eyeliner on the upper lashline.


There you go , a quick and simple everyday look using Urban Decay NAKED palette.

Thank you so much for reading and Have a great day !

Olivia's Snow Princess One-derland Birthday Party


Hi my lovelies ! Long time, no see. I have been so caught up with my life lately that I wasn't really able to do any postings. There are times that i think twice, if I'm still going to continue my  personal style blogging, or if I'm going to do a different route in blogging, like a mommy blog  or a food blog or if  I'm going to continue to blog at all. But then i realized, this is one of my creative outlets and It's hard to let go of things you have started  and at the same time loving it all along. It just so happen that certain things happened in our lives and I have to set my priorities, which are my kids and my home. Since i became a mom, every decision that I do in  life ,my kids comes first and plays a big part of it. So i just have to take it in stride and just go with the flow of life. I will blog of whatever I feel, may it be fashion related or not . Besides, this blog is called Sweet Escape, an escape or an outlet of my thoughts and ideas on just about anything, may it be fashion,beauty,kids, lifestyle, food or travel. It's a life's journal.
For those of you who have stick around, thank you so much for the interaction for it plays a big part of my life, it fuels me to be more inspired, to be creative , to do more and to not stop. So, thank you.

ABOUT THE PARTY :

 It's my little girl's first birthday and we celebrated her first birthday with a snow princess one-derland birthday party. The theme is obviously princess-like with a dash of  winter like effects like snowflakes and snowballs.  We held the party at our home basement and I  would have to say this party is definitely have a lot of labor since most of it are DIY. Starting with my DIY tulle dessert table ( I will post a DIY post on that one day ). It just sucks that I  didn't have a full picture of the whole dessert table that includes the tulle table skirt. I know, excuses, excuses of a bad blogger but really I was just extremely busy, that I forgot to do some things that I needed to do, but hey! it's a party and If you are the host , we prioritize our guests to make sure they are doing just fine and their needs are met. Anyhow, like I said I made almost everything like the table skirt,cake, cakepops , favors, birthday banner, some foods , table setting and set up of the decorations  (with a help of a friend and my hubby on that). I ordered the rest of the food and Ialso  have awesome friends who brought some dishes too , that was very nice of them and I felt so greatful. It was a fun- filled experience for everyone, especially on my little girl who is already walking so fast at 12 months .I just can't believe how time flies. For me, it seems like she grows too fast since she is displaying her milestones earlier than I expected. She started to talk at 7 months ( words like : mama and dada) and then walked at 8 months.  When she just started to take her first steps, I was excited and happy ofcourse, like any parents reaction,but then I just come to realize, I have to chase and follow her now wherever she goes, double work for me, but it's all worth it. It felt so good that she is a happy and healthy kid and that's what matters most . Right now, I feel like I got the best of both worlds for I have a handsome son and a beautiful daughter who are both loving, caring and smart kids. I'm the luckiest mom in the world.
