About 3.5 years ago I got some awesome makeup tips here and have since become more knowledgeable and definitely more interested in learning how to do makeup correctly.
I've been using Urban Decay's Naked 1 since then and am happy with it but am ready to branch out and test more color combinations. I have fair skin and light hair.
How are Naked 2 and 3? I was under the impression they were for people with darker complexions... Any other good eyeshadow palettes with decent lasting power in the same price range you would recommend?
Also, on the hair subject. Typically my hair looks far from its best in the winter because of lack of sun and salt, wearing hats all the time etc. It loses its luster and fades to a nasty yellowish tone. In the past using a purple shampoo once a week or once every two weeks has helped, but it seems to be losing its effectiveness. I just read that purple shampoo doesn't work for natural blondes --- anyone know if this is true?
I did order some tea tree oil to address scalp issues that come and go and also plan on doing an anti-chlorine Malibu treatment. While my hair hasn't been exposed to a lot of chlorine lately, I did them every few months in high school when I was swimming regularly and loved the impact on my hair.
Any advice or thoughts, suggestions on make up and hair products would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
