Daytime Smokey Eye - Urban Decay Naked Palette

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Since buying my mom her Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette I put my Naked 3 aside for the day and went with the original palette. I always lean towards such neutral and simple eye looks that for today as I was getting ready I decided to smoke it up a little - even though I was just going for a 6 hour day at school.


I've been using this palette for almost three years now and I can't get over how much I love it! As you can tell from the photo, I hardly ever use the darker shadows, which can be a bit of a waste honestly!

I first primed my eye with MAC Painterly Paint Pot and then moved on to using the lightest shade Virgin on my inner corners and brow bone with a small pencil brush. Next I used my finger to apply the beautiful shade Sin all over my lid - from end to end! Next I blended the shade Naked with my MAC 217 into my crease as a transitional shade so everything flows well. Next I took the shade Smog in my outer corner and into the outer portion of my crease as well. I can't believe I hardly use this shadow - it's so beautiful! Lastly I blended in a dark brown shade with gold shimmer called Darkhorse to my outer V (on top of Smog) for that extra deepness.

I have definitely found my day time smokey eye and I can't wait to wear it more. It really is such a beautiful combination of colours and I'm glad to be getting some use out of the darker shades. I'll be taking baby steps while working my way up to the shades Creep and Gunmetal ;).

What's your favourite way to wear this palette?
