NAKEDness.

Haha-- I wonder what kind of google searches will bring people to my blog with that title.  :)  I'm guessing they'll be sorely disappointed to learn that the only naked here is Urban Decay's NAKED palette!!  After reading about this palette for SO LONG, I finally got my hands on one!  



Let me tell you, it totally lives up to the hype.  This edition came with an eyeshadow brush (as opposed to the dual-ended Whisky/Zero eyeliner), and I'm glad.  I'd rather get the $26 brush than a $17 eyeliner (that I already have).  These shades give so many possible combinations from an every day neutral look to a dark smoky eye.  I love it already.  

Here's what I did on day 1.



I used (1) Sidecar on the inner half of my lid followed by (2) Toasted on the outer half.  In the outer corner and up into the crease is (3) Hustle.  Under the eyebrow and on the inner corner, I used (4) Virgin as a highlighter.  And (5) Creep is the eyeliner.  I used it dry and alone without a liquid or pencil underneath as an experiment, and it actually worked pretty well.  I also used Buck to fill in my brows, but IMO it was too dark and pigmented to use as a brow filler for me.  


You can do as simple or as complex of a look as you like.  I'm really looking forward to doing a dramatic look with it.  Anybody else NAKED and loving it??  :)

  1. Yay! I'm so glad you like it! I am totally in love with this palette and I think everyone should have one. It's the perfect set of neutrals! My favorite basic combo is Virgin, Naked, and Buck. But there are endless possibilities!!
