Step-by-step look using UD naked palette

An everyday look using the Urban Decay Naked palette.

1. Prime eye with urban decay eyeshadow primer potion.

2. Put toasted up to the crease using any eyeshadow brush.

3. Using a pencil brush (e.g. mac 219) put darkhorse on the outer 2/3s of the lid.

4. Using a clean blending brush (e.g. mac 217), blend out the edges.

5. Using a more dense blending brush (e.g. mac 217) dab a tiny bit of sin on the tip and blend around the edges.

6. Apply virgin as a brow bone highlight.

7. Line the upper lash line using a liquid liner (e.g. Maybelline line definer).

8. You can just use mascara, but I usually use false lashes -so apply the lashes then reapply liquid liner on top. Curl lashes, and apply mascara (e.g. model's own volumising big brush mascara). Tightline waterline using zero.

9. Apply whiskey on the lower lash line.

10. Blend whiskey with a small shader brush (e.g. mac 231) then apply darkhorse on top.

11. Apply mascara to bottom lashes, and voila completed.

Hope you enjoyed. :)

OOTD and UD naked

A quickie trip to town and my super cheap outfit lol.

Cardi - Tescos
Knitted top - Hong Kong
Boots - Asda
Handbag - Louis V
White top - Topshop

And.. This is my new addiction lately, it arrived about a week ago and I haven't used any other eyeshadows since! It has all the colours a daily look needs and darker colours for a nice evening look.

The colours are really pigmented and come out so nicely -a little definitely goes a long way. I especially love the 24/7 eyeliners because they are the colours I use the most. The packaging is sleek and simple. It is good for travelling too, though I'm scared I'll mark the velvet on the outside. It is definitely worth the £27! It's pretty hard to get your hands on, but I got mine on the House of Fraser website.

(Favourite shadows: Darkhorse, Sin, Toasted, Half Baked, Sidecar, Hustle)
