Help Creating Looks using the Naked 2 Palette?
I have dark brown hair and dark brown eyes, fair skin and wear glasses. I own the Naked2 Palette and am having trouble coming up with eye makeup looks using this palette. I have no clue what my eye shape is...I think its like a standard almond shaped eye I guess I don't know lol. I need looks that are dark enough that they will show up behind my glasses without being too harsh. The only looks I've come up with are Suspect on the Lid and Snake Bite on the Outer Third, Half-Baked on the Lid (when I wear a bright blue or teal top).
I also have fair skin, but I have red hair and blue eyes instead of brown, but I think these will still look good on anyone, these are my favorite creations so far.
1.Booty Call in the inner corner towards mid lid, then Tease in the outer v and a bit under the lower lash line. Sometimes I put a small amount of Busted over Tease just to darken it up.
2. Booty Call in the inner corner, YDK on the lid, with Busted or Snake Bite in the outer v and crease then use Blackout as liner.
3. Booty Call in the inner corner, Half Baked across the lid, and a tiny bit if snake bite in the crease.
4. Booty Call all over the lid, Tease in the crease, Pistol blended near the lash line, then Blackout as a soft liner, and Pistol on the lower lash line. (I also do the same thing with Foxy across the lid, Suspect in place of Pistol and then Blackout as soft liner)
5. YDK all over the lid and on lower lash line. Then I line with a dark brown liner.
6. Verve in the inner corner and mid lid and Busted in the crease with Blackout softly over busted to darken it up a bit, then Foxy to blend it out. Sometimes I do this as a slight cut crease too. I usually use a black liquid or a gel eyeliner when I do this.
Hope this helps!
The great thing about Urban Decay Naked palettes are they are mostly goof-proof! Almost all of the colors in the Naked 2 palette go well together, no matter what combinations you decide. A trick I love to do to intensify any combination of shadow colors is to mix your shadow color of choice with a dab of Blackout (black, matte eye shadow) This adds just enough intesity to your eyes so they shine through past your glasses without feeling too smokey. You can also incorporate Blackout as a smudged liner around your eyes. Good Luck!
I would recommend searching Youtube too - there are a lot of great tutorials out there for the Naked palettes. I have the Naked 1 and found that while other peoples suggestions and tutorials provided great starting points - experimenting with the palette on my own provided some great looks too. Good luck and have fun
