You know that expression where people say "I feel naked without my (fill in the blank)?" Well for me, there are many blanks. I feel naked without my watch, my iPhone, and my clothes, duh. But mostly, I feel naked without my make-up.
Since the age of 11, when my mom gave me permission to wear mascara, blush, and lip gloss, I've been obsessed with making myself be the prettiest me I can be! So, despite my love of the whore's paint and the aforementioned nakedness I feel without it, I've only now discovered the many virtues of Urban Decay's cult favorite Naked palette.
I gave it a trial run on Thanksgiving last week. Generally, I swipe something nude and shimmery all over my lid and then do a matte chestnut color in the crease, but I did something a little more special for the holiday.
I started by swiping the lightest color Virgin all over my lid. Then, I put a healthy dose of the bronzey Half Baked on just my lower lid. Finally, I contoured my crease using the rich shimmery brown Smog, creating a very subtle, daytime brown smokey kind of eye. And of course I topped this all off with a heavy stroke of black liquid liner and far too many coats of mascara (in a good way).
Who else is getting Naked?? I need color combo ideas. What works for you??
