Makeup Monday: Naked 3

Hello friends!

If you haven’t picked up a Naked eyeshadow palette yet, I recommend trying one out. The shadows are highly pigmented, easy to blend, and you can create a ton of different looks with the various colors and textures (mattes, satins, shimmer, and glitter).  I have all three, but honestly the only one I use on a regular basis is Naked3.

The original Naked palette is great for warmer complexions (golds, browns, and taupe nudes), and Naked2 is perfect for cool toned gals (grays and beiges).  Naked3 is full of rose-hued neutrals, and if you have green eyes (or greenish blueish eyes, like me), this palette is the one you need.

The colors are just gorgeous and surprisingly wearable for day and night.  I was worried that there would be glittery fallout, but the shadows appear more shimmery than glittery, and I haven’t had any issues with staying power.  (Although I always use a primer first, usually M·A·C’s Pro Longwear Paint Pot in painterly (here) or this.) Today I used the shades Limit and Nooner on the crease and Liar on my upper and lower lids.  Here’s how it turned out:

See what I mean about wearable?  The colors are more subtle than they appear in the pan, but in a good way (not in a “why did I spend $60 for eyeshadows that don’t show up” way).  These rose hues, coupled with an orchid colored mascara, brings out the green in my eyes and really makes them pop.  And because the shadows are still neutral, they work with almost any lip color.
