MOTD: Warm Neutrals

P1020563.jpg

Hi guys! I’m back with another Makeup of the Day post! I noticed today that when I use my Urban Decay Naked Palette I usually use it more for very light, almost non-existent makeup. I will use a few of the darker shades to add depth to the outer-v of my eye but that’s about it. So, today I decided to venture into just the darker side of the palette and do a warm, darker look using this beautiful neutral palette. I also decided to add a few more products in the mix that I’ve acquired over the past month or so that I haven’t gotten around to testing yet.

Neutral Eyes with a Red Lip!

P1010483

Hi guys! A few posts ago I unboxed my very first birchbox! In the box I got a Model Co lipstick in the shade Stiletto so I thought I would do a look where the red lip is the focal point. The lipstick was very creamy to apply, dried to a demi-matte finish and was very long wearing. I was pretty impressed with this lipstick! None of my closer up pictures of this look turned out, so I didn’t really get a good one of the eye makeup. Since the red lip was front and centre, the eye wasn’t really anything special but I’ll list the products I used below as per usual!

Wedding Glam!

P1010285

Hi guys! Today I am excited to be attending a friend of mine from work’s wedding. Since we are now into autumn, I chose a red dress and I decided to do a smoky eye with a neutral lip. I debated doing a red lip but it seemed like too much with the red dress and red hair. For the smoky eye I busted the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette and again, went straight for the silver/grey shades. For my hair I used my Babyliss Miracurl and then promptly surrounded it in a cloud of hairspray as it is fairly windy outside today.

All 4 Urban Decay Naked Palettes: Swatch & Chat

P1010158

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you swatches from all 4 Urban Decay Naked Palettes and then chat a bit about them. As you could guess from this post, and previous posts, I am a huge fan of the Urban Decay Naked series. I only own the full-size palettes, I do not own the smaller ones. I find they are great because they are quality shadows and there is something for everyone. Each palette has it’s own theme, so while you may not like them all, there is likely one that would suit your needs.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Naked 1

L to R: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal

This is the original Naked palette and the one that started it all. It is the warm toned palette of the bunch. I like to use this one particularly for a no-make up look, but I do also like the shimmery tan shades as well. I like to use it for when I want a very neutral look. My favourites of this palette are: Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck and Hustle

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

L to R: Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout

L to R: Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout

The Naked 2 Palette is the cool-toned one of the series. This is probably the palette I use the most as I use it for my everyday basic makeup look. My favourite shadows in this palette are: Bootycall, Chopper (looks amazing all by itself), Tease and Busted.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Naked 3

L to R: Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside and Blackheart

This is the rose-gold toned palette of the Naked series. I love it for soft and feminine pink looks. I love this palette, it is stunning, but I probably use it the least of the of the Naked palettes. That is only because I use it when I’m feeling like doing something pink, whereas the other two, I could use on any occasion. My favourites are: Strange, Buzz, Factory and Darkside.

Urban Decay Smoky Palette

Naked Smoky

L to R: High, Dirtysweet, Radar, Armor, Slanted, Dagger, Black Market, Smolder, Password, Whiskey, Combust and Thirteen

The Urban Decay Smoky Palette is the newest addition to the Naked series. It features the essentials for doing either a dramatic or more neutral smoky eye. The point of the palette is that you can do an every day smoky look that is appropriate for day time wear. I haven’t worn it enough yet (as I’ve only had it for about a month) to have favourites that I wear the most. Based on the swatches alone, I really like: High, Armor, Slanted, Dagger, and Smoulder. Those are the shades I go for when I pick this palette up.

Do you own any of the Naked palettes? If so, which are your favourites? If you don’t, which one are you most interested in? Let me know in the comments below!
