Naked Palette Looks/Inspiration

Hey there, I realized I haven’t written much on the Urban Decay’s Naked Palette since my first post so I thought I’d show you a couple of looks I’ve tried out. Hopefully it might give some of you a bit of inspiration to delve into your own eye shadow collection and try something new.

In all 4 looks I’m wearing Benefit They’re Real Mascara and just slightly smudgy black kohl liner.

Oh by the way that little crater/dent thing on the side of my nose next to my eye is a scar from been stabbed by a straw, after having chickenpox, when I was younger. Just in case you wondered! Haha.

Look One:

  • Half Baked all over the lid
  • Darkhorse in the crease/outer corner
  • Virgin in the inner corner

This shimmery gold eye with a slight smokey-ness is perfect for a night out and because it’s fairly neutral you could easily pair it with most lipsticks. Maybe amp it up a bit more by doing some black winged liner and wearing false lashes.

Look Two:

  • Sidecar all over the lid
  • Naked in the crease
  • Buck in the outer corner
  • Virgin on the browbone

I love this flirtier more daytime look, I stuck to just using mascara on the top lashes to give a more doe-eyed shape. I’d recommend this for anyone with blue eyes as I find the shades seem to make my iris’ pop a little more. Sidecar is a beautiful shimmery tone and I find that Naked makes the perfect transitional shade to accompany it, Buck adds a little more depth and Virgin gives more structure to the eye area. But looking back I definitely could have blended out the shades a little more, oops!

Look Three:

  • Toasted all over the lid
  • Gunmetal in the crease and outer corner
  • Virgin in the inner corner and  on the browbone

Again this look would also be good for a night out especially with winged liner and maybe false lashes. But this doesn’t have to be a night-time look, I wore it during the day and it didn’t look too out-of-place. Greys and Pinks also work well to highlight blue eyes. I paired this look with a grey toned lipstick from Bourjois in Beige Trench that can (if you’re pale like me) make you look a bit washed out, so wearing it with a more intense eye look is a much better idea.

This feels so narcissistic but I just wanted to show you the whole look. Also when you’re feeling good you’ve got to document it so that when you feel c**p you can look back and remind yourself that you don’t always look like a dead slug or something that’s been repeatedly run over!

Look Four:

  • Sin all over the lid
  • Naked in the crease
  • Buck in the outer corner and lower lash line
  • Virgin in the inner corner and on the browbone

This is almost as natural as it gets while still having something on your lids, if you were in a rush you could definitely get away with Sin all over the lid and Naked in the crease and still get a very similar but slightly quicker finish. Or if you want something natural still but have a little more time, you could draw a thin wing of liner just to give an added bit of shape to the eye.

As you can probably tell I’m a lover of neutrals, maybe one day I’ll wear a bright turquoise or something a bit more radical like that…but until then I’ll stick to what I know!
