First off: GET YOUR MINDS OUT OF THE GUTTER!! I’m not posting nudie pictures all week.
Now that that’s out of the way, let me explain what Naked Week is. Two things I’m not really into/comfortable wearing on myself are nude and matte eyeshadows. Other people, I think can pull off the look beautifully but on me, I’m never satisfied with the result. I think it’s because I’m drawn to bright colors and shimmer finishes so I’m not used to the look of nude mattes on myself. Enter the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. I bought this a few weeks ago in an effort to try to dip my toe into the nude/matte eyeshadow world but have used it only once. Well this was just unacceptable. So Naked Week was born. I’m going to post a new look everyday this week featuring the Naked Basics Palette on my eyes. This is going to help me become more comfortable with using these shades/finishes and hopefully give you guys some ideas for looks if you have the palette also.
Day 1 Eye Look Breakdown:
Today’s look is what I think is a pretty natural nude look. I used my Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a base. Then divided my lid pretty much into 3rds using Foxy, Naked 2 and then Faint from inner corner to out. I used W.O.S. in the crease to blend all of the shades together and finished up the eye with a little bit of Venus in the tear duct area. I lined the lower lash line with Venus in the inner half then faint on the outer half. Then I used my Mally Evercolor Automatic Waterproof Eyeliner in Onyx to tightline the upper lash line and on the waterline. A couple coats of Maybelline The Colossal Volume Mascara on the top and Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara on the bottom pulled everything together.

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in Ivory
