Naked Palette Look: Everyday Eyes

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!

Naked Palette Everyday Eye Shades I Used

Shades used: Virgin, Sin, Buck, Smog and Toasted



Start by applying the Urban Decay eye primer all over the lids



Next, apply Virgin across the whole of your eyelids



Then swipe Sin across the middle and outer thirds of your lids to achieve a slightly shimmery nude colour. Make sure to blend well with a fluffy brush.



Apply Buck to the crease and outer corner, blending again. Then, take a tiny amount of toasted and blend it into the very outer corner. This will add the final touch of warmth and definition.



Finally, line the top lid and outer third of the waterline with Smog. I use the brush that came with the palette for this as I find it is nice and thin to achieve a precise line with the shadow. It’s very subtle, but I think it adds that extra something to define the eyes.



The final look should be a subtle, shimmery nude that is more defined in the outer third of the lid.



Final look with mascara







And hey presto! A neutral, everyday eye look that still uses the darker shades in the palette.
