Wanna try some bold color for your eye makeup?
This magical purple eye shadow definitely gonna make you the spot light!
How to complete the look:
- Apply the stay-on eye shadow base around your eyes. I personally highly recommended NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. It not only can make the color of your eye shadow stay on for longer and brighter, but also can prevent smudge from your mascara and eyeliner.
- Use M.A.C. Purple Eye Shadow to create the smoky-like eye shadow.
- Apply Black Dior Eyeliner.
- Use Lancome Volume Mascara to complete the look!

This palette comes with 12 full-sized Urban Decay eyeshadows, making this a steal and a half. Individual full-sized shadows sell for $17 dollars from Urban Decay. if you bought all of these colors individually (and you couldn’t, five are exclusive to this palette) you would spend $204. This palette saves you $156, even more if you count the cost of the packaging and the brush that is included with it. There is also a decent sized mirror that comes covered with a protective plastic film upon opening the palette (mine’s still on but it can be removed.)
The palette itself is wrapped in a gorgeous chocolate brown velveteen cover with the word ‘Naked’ printed beautifully in gold on the inside and the outside. It’s very portable – it fits in even my smallest bag – and these eyeshadows can easily be used for a day-to-day look and amped up easily with the darker shades for night time or smokey looks. Most of the colors included are pinky/mauve toned cream colors, mulchy browns, bronzes/golds/browns, and a couple of silver/black/grays. Even if you are more of a color-wearer, there will be circumstances where you’ll wish you had this palette and these colors! (Picture day, wedding, job interview, or if you just want a light, golden/bronzey or smoky look with a punch!).
The important thing to remember is to start out with brown eyeliner and then the brown eye shadow. The charcoal eyeliner in the corner of the eye gives the movement towards the charcoal eye shadow in the same area, creating a gradient. Top it off with a lighter shadow in the opposite corner next to your nose and you have a fancy yet woodsy look, perfect for the summer or fall.

You know how you get an eyeshadow with glitter inside of it and you are inevitably disappointed by the glitter not showing up whatsoever? I decided to take matters into my own hands and added a little bit of glitter to get things glowing.
