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. 

URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTES IN A Z-PALETTE

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

MOTD Wedding Makeup Soft Smokey Eye

motdsoftsmokeyeye

This was look was inspired by one of my upcoming brides.  I love the shimmer but yet soft smokey look that brings definition to the eyes for a bride. I always think of bridal makeup as the more glamorous you - pretty, romantic and still you.  This is what I love to do - working with the bride to make her feel beautiful and most importantly enjoy her special day.  Last year I was a bride and it was just a magical time to finally be the bride and not the makeup artist (but I did do my own makeup, more about that later).

Here's the list of products to achieve this look (please leave a comment below if you would like to see  a tutorial on this).

  • L.A. Girl PRO Eye Shadow Primer in Nude
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - Foxy (highlight), Bootycall (lid), Tease (crease and blended up), Pistol (outer half of lid) and YDK mixed with Blackout (outer corner to create smokey)
  • Colourpop Super Shock Shadow I (Heart) This to create more shimmery to the lid and inner corner
  • Get Lucky Super Shock Shadow smudged on the bottom inner half of the eye
  • L.A. Girl Gel Glide Eye Liner Pencil Very Black **OMG best eyeliner EVER! This liner does not smudge seriously, waterproof and budgeproof.  Will do some swatches next week.
