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?
