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
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!
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.
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.
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.
