What up guys? Been a minute. I am having some technical difficulties thanks to Photobucket so I have been fixing images for the last few days and took some time off from blogging. I’m currently switching my images over to WordPress from Photobucket, not all the post are corrected but I’m making my way through them.
Anyway, continuing my little foray into Urban Decay’s Naked Collection. Part 2 of the Lust or Bust is coming Friday, I wanted to do some more research first. Today, however, I have a quick and easy everyday look using the Naked 2. I was kind of inspired after I did my review of the Naked 2, I was talking about how I really didn’t like the shades Snakebite and Suspect all that much so I decided to do a look with them and see if I could change my own mind. I kind of did too. At least with the Suspect shade.
So if you want so see how to get this summer look using my least favorite shades from the Naked 2, just keep reading below.
Eyes are primed and my brows are done as per usual. I set the lid using Foxy (cream bisque matte) all over the lid as my base shade.
I brought Foxy all the way to the browbone as a soft browbone highlight. Next up, I took Tease (creamy pale brown matte) into the crease and transition area.
I really blended Tease out toward the tail of the brow in a cat-like shape to give my eyes a subtle lifted look. I built up the pigmentation on the outer portion of the crease/transition area. I blended Tease just slightly above my natural crease to make my eyes appear larger. On a flat shader brush I dampened with setting spray I patted on Suspect (pale golden beige shimmer) up to the crease and all over the lid. I don’t hate this color, it’s just underwhelming I guess.
To add a pop of shine I popped a little Half Baked (golden bronze shimmer) into the center of the lid with my finger tip.
I also blended Snakebite (dark bronze shimmer) into the outer part of the lid on a pencil brush to add some depth. On the lower lash line I took Tease on a pencil brush and blended it along the lower lash line, I did that thing where I blend the shadow down kind of low as if I were contouring the curve of my eyeball. Sounds weird but I like the way it looks. I feel like it really opens up the eye. Speaking of opening the eye, I lined the waterline with a pale flesh toned pencil and popped Bootycall (cork shimmer) on the inner corner. I finished the eye with a couple coats of Benefit Roller Lash. First time I have used it. I have had samples hanging out in my back up draw forever. I have def been sleeping on that one cause girl… it’s amazing! Anyway, here’s the finished eye.
I primed my skin with Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield and for the foundation, I used Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Monte Blanc. I concealed and highlighted using Kat Von D Lock-It in L3 Warm. I cream contoured using Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette with the color Shade I set my undereye with the Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder and Nars Light Refecting Press Powder on the rest of my face.
I contoured using Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette with the powder contour called Sculpt and for blush, I used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure, then highlighted with Stunner from the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette.
I finished the skin off with a dusting of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal as my finishing powder.
For lips I went with a neutral brown tone, I used Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993. This one is a must have.
