Everyday Face: Favourite Eyeshadow

I've been thinking about doing a 'favourites' post for ages but i've never got round to it purely because .. i have too many favourites!! So i've decided to do it in the form of an 'everyday make up' series of posts simply because i wear my favourite make up items most days of the week...

Favourite eyeshadow: Urban Decay "Naked Palette"

Yes. My favourite thing in my make up box. EVER. It's the best make up item i've invested in and i use it every day and for every night out just because the colours in it are so versatile. I'd do a whole post dedicated to this but SO many people have done blog posts/videos on it now that i think it would be a little bit pointless. All i can say is, if you have a spare £32 knocking about and you can't decide what to do with it.. go pick up one of won't regret it.

There's so many different looks you can create with this palette, from a 'barely there' every day eye to a full on smoky eye for nights out. The gold colour 'Half-Baked' is my favourite (i have green eyes so i think the gold tone brings out the colour in my eyes more) and i usually pop a bit of 'Smog' or 'Darkhorse' in the socket line for extra definition.
I also use the two matte colours in the palette 'Naked' and 'Buck' to fill in my eyebrows, and i use the shimmery nude colour 'Virgin' to highlight my brow bone and occasionally on my eyes for everyday looks. 
I do suggest that you put one of these on your wish-list for Mr Santa Claus, if you haven't already...

(You may notice i've changed this post slightly.. Just because i wasn't too chuffed with the photographs due to crappy UK light levels at this current time :) But fear not..i shall be re-posting the rest of the post in a little 'series' once i've managed to get some better pictures)


  1. I really want a Naked Palette!
    I did my daily face routine post last night if you fancy taking a peek :D x

  2. I have being hearing nothing but good reviews about the urban decay naked eye pallete and after wanting it for so long I have placed it on my christmas list this year. <3 :D

  3. I've pretty much demanded that my boyfriend buys me this palette for Christmas, I'm in love with half baked and mine has just ran out - might aswell replace it with this right?!


  4. Kath - I will go and have a read now! I've just sat down with my laptop and a cuppa so im off to have a peek :)

    Hannah - It will be the best christmas present you will ever me :)

    Eloise - Yess it seems like a good idea for a replacement! Make sure your boyfriend sends one off to Mr Santa Claus for you..haha


  5. For the first few months of having this I used it EVERY day but I haven't used it in weeeeks. It's feeling unloved, must use it more now X
