One Week Naked: Day 1

Urban Decay Naked - Palette

I’ve been thinking about this series for a while, but it was Romzs‘ post on the UD Naked 1 that I finally decided to do it: a week of looks from the Naked Palette. I bought this quite a while back, but unlike most beauty nuts, this was not a love affair. I gave it a great review, but I didn’t really use it a lot because I jumped right into the arms of the rest of the shit I’ve been hoarding buying.

I’m doing this week-long series on looks using the Naked Palette since I haven’t played with it so much, and I want to truly see what the fuss is about. So, welcome, and this is the first look!

See Sheer

OW Naked - 1 - Eyes

I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base. On the inner two thirds of the lid, I have Sin. I have Toasted on the outer third of the lid and on the inner third of the lower lash line. I darkened up the outer corner with Creep and used it on the outer two-thirds of the lash line as well.

I lined my lower waterline with the Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl in Black.

OW Naked - 1 - Eyes2

I lined my upper lash line with the liquid eyeliner by Happy Skin. I used Majolica Majorca Lash King mascara, which I am about to throw away since I finally have deemed it too disgusting for use again.

OW Naked - 1 - Face

Blush is Oslo Cosmetics’ Carina (yes!) and lipstick is MAC’s See Sheer. For my base, I just used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab and the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger.

So that’s my first look! A boring daytime smokey eye like I always make… The thing is that when I use the UD Naked, I feel like the colors are so close and similar to each other that the final looks end up looking quite the same. Hmm. This is going to be more challenging than I thought.

Are you a fan of the original Urban Decay Naked palette? What’s your favorite combination?

Urban Decay is cruelty-free but is owned by L’Oreal, who tests on animals. Rimmel, Majolica Majorca, and MAC are not cruelty-free.

  1. I use my UD Naked Palette almost everyday! There are so many combinations. I’ve been obsessed with Sin as a base with Toasted in the crease. 🙂

  2. Hey Carina, there is nothing boring about a great daytime smokey eye! I LOVED Naked and used it extensively. In fact, I’d say that’s the product that opened the door of makeup for me! However, I have since then grew out of all big palettes, and I only reach for Naked when I need a shade that will work with the other stuff I’m wearing. You have definitely inspired me to take it out again tho! Can’t wait to see the rest of the looks!

    • Aw, thanks Sunny! 🙂 I find big palettes like this intimidating to use, especially if everything seems so similar to each other. What do you usually reach for in this palette?

      • Hey Carina, I usually reach for the darker shades to go over my gel liner on my lower lash line! Love Darkhorse and Hustle for that!

  3. I love my Naked palette because it’s the only UD palette I have. Lol But seriously, I never got Naked 2 maybe because I’m so happy with this one. I tend to use the same colors though like Sidecar, Buck. Naked and Toasted.

      • I don’t really have a of issues with fallout or maybe I just don’t notice? Haha I usually just tap tap tap the brush before applying it on my lids. Sometimes, when I want to use an extremely problematic palette (Wet n Wild Petal pusher ugh), I do my undereye concealing after I do my eye makeup. That way I can brush away the fallout or cover it with concealer/powder.

  4. I’m more excited by the thought that: with such recurring colors, you’re bound to discover new eye shading shapes! Just now, your use of eye liner left such a big impact on me. You rarely do eye liner! I can’t wait to see the rest 🙂
