Urban Decay Naked palettes are one of those makeup items that almost every beauty enthusiast/junkie owns at least one of them or think of getting it. I was very late to the Naked's party but when I finally bought the Naked 1 palette I wasn't particularly excited about it. I'm not sure why because it's a beautiful palette and the quality is definitely there, although it didn't blown me away to be honest, I have better palettes. Anyway, I've had this palette for over 8 months and I rarely reach for it so I've decided it's time to make my money worth it and start using it.
Today I want to share with you makeup look I created with the Naked 1 palette and one of the new Urban Decay & Gwen Stefani lipsticks.
Primer - Pixi Corrector used to prime my eye lids.
Eyshadows - Urban Decay Naked palette.
Eyeliner - L'Oreal Super Liner in Black.
Waterline - NYX Wonder pencil in Light.
Mascara - Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama, I don't recommend it, you can read in my previous post why.
False lashes - Ardell Naturals.
Brows - Inglot Brow Pomade in #16.
I wanted to create a 'halo' effect on my eyes with the centre of the lid highlighted giving the appearance of bigger, more rounded eyes.
I started with Naked as my transition shade in and above the crease which I defined further using Buck, I applied it also in my inner and outer corner of the lid and along my lower lash line.
With a small tapered brush I applied Hustle in my inner and outer corner connecting lightly in the crease but leaving the centre of the lid blank.
Using damp brush I patted Sidecar in the centre of my lid and on the tear duct.
I highlighted my brow bone with Virgin.
I lined my upper lashes with black eye liner and my waterline with a nude pencil. Mascara and false lashes finished off the eye look.
Super easy but very flattering on any eye. Perfect for day time when paired with nude lips or can be spiced up a bit by wearing it with bolder lipstick, like I did.
Foundation - Vichy Dermablend foundation in Nude (review), every time I use this foundation I'm amazed how flawless looking it leaves my skin and paired with the setting powder it truly lasts all day!
Concealer - Pixi Corrector to cancel out dark under eye circles with Bourjois Radiance Reveal in Light (review) on top of it and to highlight the centre of my face.
Setting powder - Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder.
Bronzer, contour - Benefit Hoola bronzer.
Blush, highlighter - Benefit Coralista and Sugarbomb on top of the cheeks.
Lipliner - Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Red Rush.
Lipstick - Urban Decay & Gwen Stefani lipstick in Wonderland (review).
And this is the finished look :)
