Tutorial: Bright Eyes with Naked 1 Palette

Naked 1 Bright Eyes

It's been a couple of years since the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette has been released and to this very day it's still my favorite. The rich collection of metallic golds, bronzes and neutral browns make it my go-to palette for everyday wear and for an evening out.  This is also the palette of choice by a lot my brides that I have worked with over the years.  

I totally forgot to post this look for the summer time since a bright lip (especially orange) is always on trend for the season.  I didn't want it to go to waste and thought that the neutral eye shadow would be appropriate all year- just change up the lip shade.  The Champagne L.A. Girl Glide Gel Liner with the shadow Sin from the palette really brighten up the eyes. 


In the video I show you a glimpse of my depotted Naked Palettes (1-3) and a limited edition Smashbox Soft Box Palette (wish this was available all the time).  I love having all my "neutral" palettes in one place, easy for me to grab and create looks with all of the shades and keep my kit nicely condensed.  The picture of all three palettes that I printed from my computer and taped to the back of the palette is from THE FABZILLA.  Her blog is amazing and very detailed with swatches.  If you would love to see how I did this please leave a comment below! 

Here is the product breakdown of the products that I used to create the look




Tutorial: Naked 1 Palette Smokey Eye With A POP of Color

Spring is just around the corner, but of course here in Seattle it doesn't stop the rain. I've been seeing a lot of great new trends that I can't wait to share with all of you. Many new makeup users are always scared to wear color on their lips or on their eyes. It's always best to pair a bright color with something that you are comfortable wearing. For some people it could be a neutral eye with a pop of a colored eyeliner. Or perhaps using a neutral lip liner with a bright fuchsia lipstick. I love pairing a dark eye with some bright colors as this brings more attention to the eye area. There are many ways to incorporate some bright toned hues but the easiest and simplest way is the drop shadow effect (smudged colors on the lower lashline).

Take a peak at my newest video. :) I wish I had someone to edit all my videos... any takers? lol
