I’ve had a little over 2 weeks with my Urban Decay Naked 3, and although I haven’t been in the mood for wearing makeup recently, nothing puts me back into makeup-mood like a pretty palette; and if it’s rose gold, that’s even more convincing! Now, I know better than to bore you with the specifics of this palette, so if you’re looking for a good in-depth review, check out Adrienne’s review at The Sunday Girl. However, if your goal is to create makeup looks with your Naked 3, I’ve got a little bit of inspiration for you and a simple Urban Decay Naked 3 makeup tutorial. If you like this one, let me know on the comments and I’ll share other looks you can create with your Naked 3. Let’s go!
Start by spraying some Mac Fix + on a fluffy blending brush like the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush; this will give you a better colour payoff on some of the sheerer eyeshadows. Dip your damp brush into Trick and swipe it all over the eyelid up to the crease. If the colour doesn’t look strong yet, don’t worry, we’ll go over it again later.
Next, dip the tip of a flat eyeshadow brush, like the Mac 239, into Blackheart. Be careful with this shade, as it is the most pigmented eyeshadow of the palette, and you only need a very small amount. After tapping off the excess, gently place the brush at a 45 degree angle on the outer edge of your eye, like when you’re doing the wing of a winged eyeliner. Use a clean blending brush like the Mac 217 to blend that line, keeping the colour all on the outer edge of the eye, like you’re softening the line of a cat eye flick.
With another clean blending brush, create some definition into the crease with Nooner. That will serve to pull Trick and Backheart together, whilst keeping both colours separate. Nooner is the perfect transition colour and it’s super easy to blend.
Now you’re almost done; line your upper and lower lash lines with Backheart using a small angled brush, like the Mac 263, and soften the line until it’s so faded that it blends seamlessly into a smokey eye. Using you index finger, go over with Trick and intensify the rose gold colour on the centre of your eyelids. Finally, dab a little bit of Strange on your brow bone to highlight, and that’s everything for the eyes!
The rest was pretty basic, but I’ll list everything I used below, in case you fancy recreating the entire look. I tried to keep everything very pretty and feminine, which I think is a theme that suits the Naked 3 palette. One thing I did today that I don’t normally do, is contour the sides of my nose, and I liked it a lot! Let me know if you want to see how I did that, and I’ll be happy to oblige :)
