Today’s post is just a quick Face of the Day featuring the Urban Decay Naked Palette. After deciding not to purchase the Naked 3 (for now, for hoarding avoidance), I picked up the original Naked Palette and decided to play around with it. Sometimes, I find it absolutely genius. Other times, I find it quite uninspiring. I think this is a great natural look, though I do find that some of the Naked shadows to be a bit too frosty for my liking.
I used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze as a base. I applied it with my finger all over my mobile lid, blended upward around the crease. I used Buck as a transition shade (applied on crease and blended out), patted on Dark Horse on the outer third and blended into Smog which I patted on the inner half. My inner corner highlight is Sin. On my lower lash line, I smudged on Dark Horse (outer half) and Toasted (inner half).
For definition, I added Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl in Black on the outer half of the upper and lower lash line. I curled my lashes but did not add mascara.
For the rest of my face, I used The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and bareMinerals Original Foundation in Medium Beige as my base. I applied Tom Ford Cheek Color in Wicked high up along my cheekbone and contoured (subtly!) with NYX Powder Blush in Raisin. On my lips, a favorite—NARS Sheer Lipstick in Pago Pago. It’s a beautiful color but far too shimmery for my liking. And, finally, on my brows, I have K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow 24H in 01.
Hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂 Sorry it’s so short, I’ve been a bit swamped with work. I hope you’re all having a great week so far!
I like the look! And the subtle contour works! I don’t have Naked 2 yet so maybe that’s what I’ll pick up instead of the 3. I’m not too sure about the rose hues suiting my skin tone and everybody seems to be talking about it in the reviews.
Thank you so much. 🙂 What’s your undertone? Naked 2 is cooler than Naked 3 (from what it looks like), so if you’re more yellow-toned, I feel like maybe Naked 1 or Naked 3 is better suited. Unless you are cool-toned, then Naked 2 all the way. 🙂
