Out of all the makeup products I own, I would say that my favourite items are probably my eyeshadow palettes. I love how versatile eyeshadow palettes are, as well as how you can create completely different looks using the same palette. For this reason I decided to start a mini series on my blog where I will be using one eyeshadow palette each time to create four different looks.
I thought I’d start things off using one of my all-time favourite eyeshadow palettes, the Urban Decay Naked palette – enjoy!
Look One: The Everyday Pretty Pink
This is a look that I go for during the day, when I’m in a rush and I want something that is quick to apply, yet still looks good. For this look I use just two eyeshadows. I start by applying Sin, a really pretty shimmery light pink shade, all over the lid, then blend Buck, a matte medium brown shade, into the crease. I then apply some liquid liner and mascara and I’m good to go!
Look Two: The Everyday Golden Shimmer
I absolutely love a gold eye and tend to go for this look when I want to go for a makeup look that’s a little bit more special – yet still quick to apply. I start by applying Half Baked, a medium gold shade, all over the eyelid. I then follow this by applying Smog, a dark gold shade on the outer half of my eyelid and along my lower lashes, then blend Buck, a matte medium brown shade, in my crease. Again, I applied some liquid liner and mascara and the look is complete!
Look Three: The Everyday Smokey
Although I wear liquid liner on most days, I sometimes like to go for a softer, smokier look. In order to achieve this look I start by applying Toasted, a reddish-bronze shade, all over the lid and underneath my lower lashes, and blend Darkhorse, a shimmery dark brown, in the crease. I then use an angled brush to apply Creep, a shimmery black shade, along my upper lashes for some definition. Add some mascara and this look is complete.
Look Four: The Smokey Shimmer
This look is slightly more intense than the previous looks (although the camera annoyingly failed to pick this up!), and is one that I opt for in the evenings. I start by appling Sidecar, a shimmery taupe shade all over the lid, followed by a mixture of Smog and Darkhorse on the outer corner of my lid and blend this well into the crease. I then apply a thin line of liquid liner along my upper lashes, and use an angled brush to apply the shimmery black shade, Creep over this and slightly smoke it out, followed by lots and lots of mascara!
