Rich Chocolate | EOTD ft. The Naked Palette


Hello everyone!

Today we’re taking it old school by looking at the eye makeup I’ve been enjoying to sport recently – and yes, it’s using my beloved Naked palette.

When I first purchased and got excited about this very sshhbeauty-appropriate palette in this post a couple of you requested some makeup looks using it, and I’m finally getting round to granting your wishes.

Of course summer makeup tends to be fresh, airy, dewy, light, but I also think a rich smoky eye can really transform your whole look. That’s what I’ve been craving and creating on my eyes over the past week or so.

Anyway, enough of the rambles – you all just want to see it, so let’s get going!

I’ll get onto the products I used to create this rich chocolate smoky eye!

  • Firstly I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze – a new purchase for me so it may be making an appearance in a haul very soon *cough maybe this weekend cough* but I am obsessed with it. Beautiful alone, but also beautiful as a base. I just smoothed this onto the lid with my finger.

 

  • Then onto the Naked palette – I only used a few shades. They’re marked with a ‘*’ on the picture above (scroll up to see).
  • I started off by packing Sidecar, aka my favourite shade in the palette, all over the lid with my finger. This is basically On and On Bronze in powder form so they pair perfectly.
  • I then took Smog into the crease with a fluffy blending brush (the Angled Shadow Brush from Real Techniques, to be precise).
  • Into my very outer corner I used Darkhorse on a Base Shadow Brush and also took this under the lower lashline.
  • I then pressed a little Virgin into my inner corner (not shown on the photos but it’s a matte pale pink).

 

And that, ladies and gents, is the way I created the rich chocolate eye that I’ve been absolutely loving recently. It’s not as difficult as it first looks, right?

Do you have a staple eye product?

Hope your week’s got off to a beautiful start!

    1. Haha I’m the same when I look at some makeup artists’ work – I just can’t work out how they do it! So jealous.
      And with the winged liner my only tip is practice – sit down with a makeup wipe and your eyeliner and keep going till you get it right! That’s the best advice I was given and it really does work x

    1. When I first tried it I wasn’t a fan, but I left it to dry out for a week or so and came back to it – now I’m really impressed! Let me know what you think if you try it!
      I also think it pairs really well layered with other mascaras like it did in this look! xx

    1. Thank you lovely! Glad you like it… And it took me years to pluck up the courage (and save the money haha) to splurge on my Naked palette but I don’t regret it in the slightest. Urban Decay never fail to impress me! xx
