Soft And Simple Eye Makeup Look With Naked 2 Palette

Better late than never, right? This rings true as I just got the Naked 2 palette for Christmas. They've already come out with the 3, but I haven't been able to get my hands on it.  So I guess it's appropriate to go in order and wait my turn...



I have owned and loved loved the original Naked palette from Urban Decay for quite sometime.  So I kind of felt like I was cheating on it with my newest Naked 2 palette, $52, I got for Christmas! (Weird I know, makeup lovers problem.)  But this thing was too pretty not to dive right into it. I'm sure #1 will understand.

So I am sharing with you an extremely SIMPLE AND SOFT EYE MAKEUP LOOK you can recreate with this palette.  Why am I not going all out and trying to use all 12 colors in one look??  It was a VERY rainy day and I wasn't leaving my house.  Didn't want to waste an extreme look on the indoors.  But I never walk around the house without any eye makeup on, never. What if someone comes to the door??



How to and shades used :

1. All over eyelid from brown bone to lash line - Foxy (matte).  2. Lash to crease and in tear duct area - Bootycall (shimmer).  3.  Just crease - Tease (matte).  
4. Along up per and lower lash line - Snakebite (shimmer).


When wanting to pull off a simple eye look, it's all about balancing out the shimmery shades with the matte ones.  I went without a true eye liner and just used the "snakebite" shade as my liner to truly keep this look soft with no harsh lines. *Tip - WET your brush ahead of time before dipping in your color - it makes the liner a bit darker and more pigmented in appearance.*

The other awesome benefit of this collection is that it comes with an amazing, I mean ah-mazing eye shadow brush.  One end is rounded and fluffy for all over and crease and the other is thin and flat good for lining.  It's a great weight (not too light, not too heavy) and the bristles are luxuriously soft - unlike most brushes included in a palette.

I plan on posting many more looks with this palette that tend to go cooler (think rosy golds) in the neutral category than my original Naked palette which has a warmer (think yellowy) feel.

Other makeup worn : Blush is MAC "Fleur Power," Mary Kay mascara, and lips are a tiny gloss that actually came with this palette that I've managed to lose in the time it took me to take these pics and write this post - ugh.  If I find it, I'll let you know what the shade was!

Do you own the Naked 2 or 3?  How do you think they compare to the original?
