Naked 3 Palette Look #5: Classic to Glam Smokey Eye

IMG_5603

At long last, I’ve come to the end of my Obligatory Naked Palette Tutorial Series.  This is a classic smokey eye turned glam with the addition of one shadow.

When I create smokey eyes, I like to work from lightest color to darkest as to not end up with a smokey upper face – not easily reversible.  There are numerous variations, intensities, and interpretations of a “smokey eye”, I just did what I thought to be a simple classic one that suits my eye.

Here we go!

On primed eye-lids I placed “Strange” from the crease to the brow bone to ensure easier blending later.  I left the lid alone.

I then blended “Limit” above the crease, followed by “Nooner” in the crease.

Next I messily dotted a line of black kohl pencil into my upper lash line, and smudged it out with a pencil brush, focusing more black on the outer lid – just cuz.

I patted “Darkside” all over the lid, and on the flip side of the brush patted “Blackheart” in a wedge/C shape on the outer lid and crease.

I used a smaller blending brush to blend the edges of the darker colors, to maintain the intensity and not over blend.

I repeated the same steps on my lower lash line.

To make this more interesting, I dampened a cream eye shadow brush and patted “Trick” over the center of the lid.  I also added clear gloss to my lip color (listed below).

Accomplishment!  I feel it only necessary to share my thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked palettes, but I will do so in a separate post so I can organize a diplomatic way of sharing my subjective and objective opinions (spoiler alert?).
