My mom, the kind ol’ soul, gifted me this beautiful Naked Palette, by Urban Decay, for Christmas. I could not be happier and have been trying it out all morning. Here is what I look like after using this God send.
In my head, I looked like Canadian MUA @JessJaneMakeup. Check out her amazing Instagram feed! Sadly, this wasn’t the case, but I feel that the Sesso Naked lipgloss, that came in the palette, made my lips look plumper than usual. I also contoured my lips with a neutral Model Co. lip liner that I got free with some magazine ages ago. There are some amazing lip contour guides on Pinterest if you guys are interested.
I found the palette good. It has a nice mix of light to darker neutral eye shadow shades. I used Dive on the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop and covered my entire lid in Dare and accentuated the socket with Stun.
I lined my upper eye with this Soap and Glory liquid liner, which I find brilliant. It’s very accurate and the precision is spot on.
I used the Stag 24/7 Glide On pencil, included in the set, on my waterline. I found the Urban Decay Perversion mascara incredible! It is lightweight and really gives the lashes incredible length and volume without irritating the eyes. The 5050 base shadow was also a nice product to work with. Matt, yet illuminating.
However, I, personally, wasn’t keen on the bronzer or blush really. I thought the blush was way too pink for my own taste and the bronzer wasn’t as dark as I myself would use. Overall, I LOVE the palette though. I just wish they had included a fluff brush in it, as I love the brushes in the other Naked palettes and think that if I really were on the run, it wouldn’t be nice to be stuck for a brush!!
What make up gifts did you guys get this Christmas? Any that you think are must haves? Let me know.
