Urban Decay Naked3 Palette: Day and Night Looks






I don’t think I have ever been more excited to receive a beauty product in the mail than I was when I received Urban Decay’s Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette yesterday. Even after having looked at dozens of swatches of this palette online, I still was taken aback by its beauty when I swatched the shades for myself last night [a bit dramatic – but my beauty junkies out there know what I’m talking about!]. For this post I wanted to create a natural, shimmery eye look for daytime and a smokier, amped up look for a night out. To transition between the looks I didn’t completely re-do my eyes; instead, I blended three darker shades overtop of what I already had on. This way if you’re pressed for time, you’ll be good to go out at night after a quick touch-up!

Day-time: I began by washing Burnout all over my lids, up to the crease with the fluffy side of the brush. Next, using the same brush, I applied Nooner to my crease using a wind-screen wiper motion, and then in a v-shape, brought the shade down onto my lower lash line. To add a bit of sparkle I applied Buzz to the center of my lids, patting the shade on with my middle finger. Lastly, for a wide-eyed effect I applied Dust to the inner corners of my eyes.

Smoked-out: First, I applied factory over my lids [overtop of Buzz]. I then took a bit of Darkside and applied this shade to my crease, as well as to the outer-v. To smoke out my eyes a bit more I applied Blackheart as a liner to my upper lash line using the flat brush by wetting the brush first prior to dipping it into the shadow. Finally, I applied a small amount of Blackheart to the outer third of my lower lash line.

Have you tried this gorgeous palette?

    Your looks look brilliant, I love pink eye shadows. It’s a shame I can’t afford the Naked 3 palette xoxo

      Thank you so much for the sweet comment! And I know what you mean – I used a gift card that I got for Christmas to purchase this palette πŸ™‚

      Personally, I think that it is because out of the three palettes the Naked3 is the most different. I have the Naked2 as well and after playing around with the Naked3 for only a day, I have to say I like it more. I think that the shades are more flattering and they will be perfect for creating spring and summer looks!

    I absolutely love the looks that you’ve created! & you’re so, so pretty! I wish I could afford this palette but I just have too much to save for at the minute, unfortunately. Hopefully I’ll get it some day because it looks amazing!

      Thanks! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with πŸ™‚

    SUCH a pretty and classic look on you! I’m straight-up obsessed with this palette. I use it every single day.

    And yes – as a self-professed beauty junkie, I know the feeling of makeup taking you aback. I also have a tendency to run around my house clapping like a child and putting swatches 2 inches from my husband’s nose. “LOOK HOW FRICKIN’ PRETTY THIS IS!!” I should be committed. πŸ˜‰

      Thank you! Haha, I’m glad I’m not alone! [my fiance thinks I am insane as well when I start to profess my love for a certain product]

    Thanks for the follow πŸ™‚ I love your blog. I’m in two minds whether to buy the Naked 3 palette as I have 1 and 2… do you think it’s worth it?? πŸ™‚

    • January 10, 2014 / 1:59 am

      Thank you so much! I do think that this palette is worth it – as the shades are much different than that of both Naked1 and Naked2.

    You look stunning and the palette definitely fits you! I just got mine and I’m so excited to try it on!:)

    So pretty! Of all the naked palettes, which one do you love the most?

    • January 10, 2014 / 2:00 am

      So far . . . I am loving this palette best! I think that pink tones can be very feminine and flattery on the eyes πŸ™‚

    Hey, what mascara are you wearing in this picture? Or are your eyelashes naturally that thick?

    • January 16, 2014 / 1:35 pm

      I’m wearing Maybelline’s The Falsies! My lashes are naturally pretty long, but this mascara adds serious volume πŸ™‚

        Okayy. Thank you! Falsies original or flared?

        The original version – I use the waterproof formula πŸ™‚
