I held off producing a post reviewing the Urban Decay NAKED eyeshadow palette at first as I know it’s not a new product, and there are hundreds of reviews online sharing to readers how fabulous this product is. That in mind, I didn’t feel it needed anymore reviews about how amazing it is. But I have noticed since owning this palette that I don’t seem to use any of my other eyeshadow palettes, therefore I feel it’s only fair to join the nation and rave about this to you all!
Based on a colour palette of neutrals, the 12 bronze-hue shades Naked eyeshadow palette compliment all eye colours and include matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle, so you can pick from a range of textures. The shades range from pale champagnes to deep gunmetal, so you can layer up which ever shades you like for a sheer, shimmery natural looking day time eye, or a smokey evening look. The 12 stunning shades are the following; Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal. For work, I’ve been using Virgin (the lightest shade) as a base, with Naked (the third one along, a matte, neutral brown) over the top and a little bit of Buck in the outer crease. But for evening, I’ve been using all these shades below to create a striking grey-mixed-with-brown dark eye look..
After layering up the six shades, and blending in the darkest Gunmetal shade into the lower eyelid, it creates a shimmery evening eye that blends greys and soft browns together. If you have blue eyes, then take note because greys and browns are the perfect shades for helping blue eyes ‘pop’ and look that little bit clearer and wider!
I have finished the look off with liquid eyeliner from Essence (it’s the felt-tip pen liner I have previously blogged about here) and Lancome Hypnose Doll Eye mascara, which I love love love!
So this is my ultimate weekend night eyeshadow look, made easy by Urban Decay for having such a fantastic eyeshadow palette which makes layering up different looks so easy and achievable. For £37, it’s a staple set that you’ll rely on everyday, and lasts for ages. Fully recommend!
