Blog sale bargain: Naked Basics Palette.





I've been lusting after this palette for so long, so many bloggers have raved about this little baby I needed it in my life. I spotted it in a blog sale just before Christmas so this cost me a tiny £8 and it's worth every penny. 

This is actually the first of the Urban Decay palettes I've tried. Up until the end of last year I really wasn't a huge eyeshadow wearer, but I've slowly but surely started wearing it in my every day routine and now I'm obsessed. This is the perfect palette for newbies like me - the neutrals are gorgeous and last on my lids all day. My favourite everyday colours are Naked 2 and Venus. Naked 2 is a really natural looking colour that just adds a little something to your eye. Venus is an amazing shade to blend with and works really well for highlighting my brown bone too. 

The only colour I'm a little unsure of is Crave aka black. It's a little scary for me and I'm not really sure what to do with it other than to use as a sort of eyeliner - so if you have any tips on wearing black eyeshadow, end them my way. Other than that, this is the ideal palette for someone starting out with make up or for people who travel a lot, I really can't fault it. It's the perfect size for throwing in your bag and you have all the colours you could need for creating a day to night look. I'm in love.

Have you tried this palette? Also if anyone has a really basic eyeshadow/smokey eye tutorial please leave the link, i'm rubbish at applying shadows!

  2. I have the Naked 2 but am thinking about buying this as well as I love matte eyeshadows. I also wasn't a big eyeshadow wearer before I got the palette and now I wear it almost every day! If you Google Naked Basics tutorials a lot come up to create both natural and smokey eye looks x

  5. The only Naked palette I would have. I love matte shadows and I could even use Naked 2 for my eyebrows, which is always a plus when you travel :)

  7. What a bargain!! Its nice to use a black eye shadow as an alternative eyeliner, if you smudge it out it really does thicken the lashline, just an idea? :) x

  8. I am thinking about picking this up! Black would be great in the triangle of the eye, with a light hand!
