If there is one thing in the world that all girls have in common, I'm pretty sure it would be Urban Decay Naked Palette! Some of you might have the original version, others of you might have Naked 2, or even both? Doesn't matter.. Eeevery girl I've talked to has tried Naked Palette at some point in her life and has loved it ever since!
Even I wasn't immune! In fact, for a few months last year I was so into Urban Decay Naked Palette that I just wore it all the time! I tried every combination possible. What can I say... It's the most versatile eyeshadow palette since the beginning of time! But then..., at some point, I was soo Nakeded-Out that I couldn't even see those palettes again. Then I stopped...
When I heard that Urban Decay was about to launch the Naked 3 version last year, I was skeptical. Another Naked Palette?? Do we really need to get "Naked" again??
The answer is..... YES!!! We do, girlfriends!
Aren't these babies so pretty??? Overall, the theme of this Naked 3 Palette is rosy gold. Naked 1, on the other hand, is more of a warm gold, while Naked 2 is smokey grey. The texture is smooth and buttery, and the color pay-off is also amazing! I thought some of the light colors wouldn't show up on my skin tone, but they actually complemented it nicely. This palette is a must have!
The look I created today using UD Naked Palette 3 is pretty simple. I used only four shades in total: Strange for the brow bone, Buzz for the lid, Blackheart for the outer corner, and Darkside to blend all the colors together.
Here are the steps to get this look:
1. After applying the foundation (I used Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Luminous Foundation), define the eyebrows using Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown. Then apply the Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base.
2. Swipe "Strange" under the eyebrows to accentuate the brow bone and to give your face an instant lift.
3. Apply "Rose" all over the lid using a small eyeshadow brush (I used the Sephora brush)
4. Swipe "Blackheart" on the outer corner of the eye using an angled brush (I also used the Sephora angled eyeshadow brush)
5. Blend everything out using a blending brush (I used Chanel brush #3). I also patted "Darkside" in the outer corner to kind of soften the dark color a bit. Keep blending until everything smoothes out.
6. Clean up the under eye area using your favorite concealer. My current can't-live-without is by Marc Jacobs Remedy Concealer Pen! It also works as a highlighter.
7. Create a sun-kissed effect on your skin using a very subtle bronzer. Make sure it isn't too far from your actual skin tone (I used Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel). And top it off with a rosy blush (Mine is by Givenchy Le Prism Blush #23)
Voila, cherie! You're all set!! Here are the products I used for this look:
That's not so bad, is it? I think my Naked Palette obsession is starting all over again. I can already see a few more cute combinations to get different looks. I'll update you guys on this!
P.S. This is totally unrelated, but I just wanna share my favorite scent at the moment:
It's YSL Manifesto Fragrance. On my skin, it smells like a light sweet vanilla with the heart of white flowers... I truly love it!!
