Urban Decay Naked Basics Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Here is my latest tutorial using the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.  I used to absolutely hate matte eyeshadows.  Perhaps because I ran into bad formulas and they never worked out for me.  Or maybe because I just like shimmer and glitter so much I'd rather buy those kind of eye shadows over matte ones.  Whatever the reason, mattes weren't my thing.

Then comes the Naked and Naked 2 palettes where Urban Decay put a few matte shadows in with their shimmery shadows.  I definitely started to learn how to incorporate the matte shadows into my looks and really learned to appreciate what they can do.  With Urban Decay's pigmented and smooth formulation, the mattes were so much easier to use than the ones I've tried in the past.

The Naked Basics Palette is a palette of all but one matte eye shadows.  This palette is meant to accompany the Naked and Naked 2 palettes because a lot of people thought there should've been more matte shadows in those palettes, but you can definitely use it alone, which is what I did in this tutorial.

Here is what I used:

Revlon Nearly Naked foundation - Shell + Fresh Beige mixed
Physicians Formula Super BB concealer - Light/Medium
Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer - 7
Chanel Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil - Brun Cendre
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Venus, Naked, Foxy, Faint, Crave
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - Fantastic
Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick - Lust for Blush

Hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!
