The Way It was MEANT to Be:  So Neutral!

Okay, so I’m pretty the Urban Decay Naked Palette was designed with neutral looks in mind, not so much the ultra smoky look I did yesterday.  So this neutral look follows that smokier look up as a quick, work-safe alternative made easy by that palette.

Happy weekend everyone!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Using the 239, apply Naked eyeshadow into the crease with the 226 and feather above the natural crease until it fades.  Next, apply Virgin eyeshadow all over the lower lid with the 239.  Define the crease with Darkhorse eyeshadow using the 219, and then lightly blend Naked eyeshadow softly over it with the 226.  Blend Grain eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Whiskey liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Plum Attraction blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Emotive lipstick first, and then layer Perversion lip junkie for a complementing lip.

    Great neutral look! I love the lips, really pulls it together and makes the simple neutral look pop! Good job :)

  2. Wow! Gorgeous lips!

    On the other hand, I don’t think I’m going to buy the Naked Palette after all, I already have a lot of neutral shades from UD (and other brands), so will only get the Vegan palette instead.

    Oh Christine you are only making me want this palette more and more!! lol. Really pretty look. I’m not crazy about whiskey on the waterline tho, kinda makes it look irritated and reddish. I find that with alot of brown liners. It looks good on the lower lashline tho.

    Stunning, flawless, perfection, etc… I love it and that lip is ideal for you.

    Even though the palette seems more meant for subtle neutral looks, I’m very glad you did a smokier, more ‘night’ look first, just to show the real versatility of the palette.

    I definitely wanted it as soon as I saw the promotional pictures, but it’s good to know that when I travel, I can be set with just this.

    This is gorgeous. Can’t wait to try it out!

    hi Christine! what a nice look -this is a gorgeous fall look, I think – warm and neutral upstairs, and rich an vampy downstairs :)

  9. Love this look! I can definitely see myself with it everyday. :3

    Lovely look. The shadows look like they have a bit of shimmer to them even though you have them labeled as matte. Are they more of a satin?

  11. Diana B

    This eye/lip combo looks awesome on you

  12. Daria

    Absoltuely gorgeous! I love that lip combination, and with the color of you shirt and subtle eyes, you look like a real knockout Christine!

  21. Whirl

    Christine,again,do you think this look would work if you used Chanel Dragon on the lips instead of this combo?
    Just wondering…

  23. jessica

    This is so gorgeous! I cannot wait to get my hands on this palette and start experimenting. I need more quality neutrals, and UD really has pulled out all the stops on this one. It’s just so classy!
    Loving the lip color with the subtle eye. It pulls the entire look together!

  26. Raychel

    Love the neutral look on you, especially paired with those lips!

  27. nina

    Wow, are you wearing contacts? I love all those colored spots in your eyes. They look reptile like, very exotic! Thanks for letting us know about the Naked Palette. I love UD, and have been wanting some of those colors esp Smog. I also wanted Bourbon, but didn’t like the glitter so I am excited about whiskey. Can’t wait for my order to come in the mail!!!!!

  28. Absolutely gorgeous!
    Please do more tutorial using the Naked palette
