Naked by Urban Decay!
On Sunday, I decided to take the plunge and finally buy the Naked eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay. If you haven’t heard of it: get on it! I had been to about 5 different Ulta and Sephora stores evaluating and reevaluating it for 3 weeks. When I found out that each store gets 2 palettes a week, I flew to the Sephora inside of JCPenney and picked one up. They had way more than any other store, so if you’re interested in it, find one there!
Naked boasts 12 shades that are said to look good on every complexion. As a warm medium-dark complexion with yellow undertones, I can confirm this for those other gals like me ;) I think one of my favorite things is that the shade called “Buck” is my exact complexion and it does a great job covering minor mistakes without needing makeup remover.
The shades are a perfect range for both daytime and night-out looks. You can wear a dramatic smokey eye when using the shadows as shades in a gradient, or you can keep it minimal and natural by sticking to the light shades. The palette also comes with a great quality brush that happens to be cruelty-free! Never a bad thing!
I decided that I was going to show you guys what it looks like on. I’ll be honest– this is my first time putting on makeup for real. In the past, I used to use only one shade at a time since, for some reason, I really liked that color blocked look. So disclaimer: I’m not any makeup guru.
Unfortunately, my lighting bleached out a lot of the color. It’s way darker and richer than it looks :)
I hope you enjoyed this post! This is one of my new additions, as I want to try things to switch my look up a bit. I’ve never been much of an eyeshadow person (I wore ONLY eyeliner for 5 years up until a couple of months ago!) but I’m certainly hoping to be!
More entries like this to come, especially since I’m on the quest to find a shade of lipstick that I actually like enough to buy! More on that next week!
