Welcome to another look in my Obligatory Naked Palette Tutorial Series!
My Macbook Pro is getting a tune-up due to a recent meltdown, hence no computer lately, hence no blog posts. It took a little re-training, but I’m using my husband’s PC in the meantime
I have dug in to my Naked 3 Palette, freaking finally. There are pictures and swatches galore on the web; and with my next post I will include a picture of the palette showing what colors I used. This one, however, I will be lazy and list the names of the colors used along with everything else.
Initially, I thought it appropriate to do a “Fall” look, whatever that means. I take it to mean throwing makeup on your face when it also happens to be Fall, and to appease the trend gods maybe putting on a darker lip color. I paired this look with both a light lip and a darker lip. Not the traditional wine or berry dark, but a darker lip shade that complements the eye shadows. IMO. I’m not actually sure what happened to Fall, it already feels like winter.
After a lip, lash, waterline, and unintended clothing, hair, and venue change – here is the lighter lip look (alliteration say what!!!)
Pretty trans-formative, right? It doesn’t help that I fail at consistent lighting. The first pictures are truest to color, the second are a bit washed out by the light. I would describe this palette as neutral with a variety of pink, mauve, and rose gold hues. The shimmer shades read as jewel tones IMO.
Face – Illamasqua Skin Base, Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder, Illmasqua blushes in Naked Rose, and Lover, Shiseido High Beam White.
Eyes – From the Naked 3 Palette, I used Strange on the brow bone and to blend out the edges; Nooner and Limit to define and blend out the crease, Darkside to deepen the outer crease, and Trick on the lid used wet to prevent fallout and get maximum color payoff. I used Factory on the lower lash line. Rouge Bunny Rouge liquid eyeliner in black, Ardell Demi Pixie lashes (first), Velour mink lashes in “Strike a Pose” (second). I used a dark kohl liner in the waterline for the first look, and a nude color for the second look, just because. Some brand of mascara.
Lips – First lip color is a blend of Edward Bess Night Romance, and Mac Fanfare. The second lip color is a mix of Bite Beauty’s Fig mostly blotted off to a light stain, topped with Mac Ravishing once again blotted.
Fall made a short appearance, but one nonetheless as there are blankets of leaves to prove it.
