In this weeks blog, I have decided to review about my newest component to my makeup collection- the new Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette!
After months of waiting in anticipation, I finally got my hands of this gem and was so excited to create new smoky eye looks.
Please be aware that I am not a professional make-up artist, this blog is simply depicted on my own opinions.
The packaging of the product is amazing; the sturdy plastic palette makes it light in weight- which differs from the other Naked products. The light weight of the packaging is perfect to travel with and the large mirror inside is a great handbag essential. The set comes with a two-sided brush, the flat and blending brush ends are of a good quality and very fluffy meaning they are soft on the eye lids and saves you travelling with loads of eyeshadow brushes.
I have swabbed the palette onto my wrists ; as you can see (photos above), there are a variety of different warm bronzed copper tones, which are extremely pigmented. Unlike the other Naked palettes, there are more matte warm tones, ranging from burnt coppers to dark shifty bronzes. There are some beautiful sparkly shades which would look great in halo eye look or in the crease.
From the swab test, my favourite shade is He Devil, which is a dark burgundy, brown shade- its so pigmented and would look beautiful as a transition shade. What I love most about this palette is that there are the range of neutral brown shades; both Ounce and Chaser are perfect to be used as a base colour as they are light and creamy which can easily be built upon.
My Make-up Look:
In this make-up look I decided to create a smoky copper look; I started using the light matte brown Sauced as my base colour, as its great to give your eye some definition. Then to add depth and warmth to my lid, I used He Devil in the corners of my eyes which then blended into my crease with a blending brush.
To add a bit of glimmer to my look, I used Dirty Talk, which is a shimmery burnt orange shade. I applied this shade to my inner corners of my eyes to add a slight highlight to my eye. To add definition, I used He Devil on my waterline which then I blended into my corners of my eye which a brush. To finish the look, I used the lightest shimmery shade Lumbre, and placed that in the centre to create a halo smoky eye.
Here is my finished make up look, as this is only a basic smoky eye, you could add a winged eyeliner and dramatic eyelashes to create a more fierce look. You can also add a dark nude lip to bring the attention to your copper shimmery eyes!
For the price of £39, this palette is worth every penny!
It is so versatile and can be accompanied with other palettes to create other looks. I would definitely recommend this palette to those who love copper shades and smoky eyeshadow looks, the dark matte shades are more pigmented than the other Urban Decay kits.
I hope you guys enjoyed this weeks blog, please be aware that I am not a professional makeup artist and simply sharing this product with you as I am passionate about make-up and beauty.
