For those of you who don’t know, for Christmas I received the Urban Decay Naked Palette. The Naked range has to be one of the most hyped-up in beauty-land, and it’s easy to see why. 12 neutral shades from light to smokey, a mix of shimmer and matte, and really heavily pigmented. Heaven? It’s pretty darn close. And with three palettes to choose from, Urban Decay have ensured that everyone’s neutral tastes are catered for. If you’re curious to find out more, I wrote a review of my palette (the first in the range) which you can read here.
I’ve been using this palette almost every day since I got it. Initially, I was just trying all the different shades and slapping them on, but through frequent use I’ve found combinations that I really like, and know how to achieve the looks I love in just a few minutes. I thought I would share one of my favourite everyday eye looks with you today. I know that when I first got the palette I didn’t know which shades to apply first – there’s just so much choice! I found tutorials really helpful to use as a guide, and I hope that this will be useful in suggesting how to achieve an everyday look while still using some of the smokier colours!
And hey presto! A neutral, everyday eye look that still uses the darker shades in the palette.
