3 Ways to Work Your Naked3 Palette from Day to Night (and win one too!)

Over the past year and a half, I've stuck pretty much to lifestyle blogging, and for a very good reason: I suck at a lot of things. Fashion blogging aka OOTD blogging, while I admire and adore the blogs and their outfits, I just don't have what it takes to do it everyday (um, did you not see my awkwardness yesterday?)

Another thing you probably won't find on my blog, at least until I improve my skills (or lack thereof), is makeup tutorials. I'm not gonna lie.. I suck at doing my makeup. And it's not that I'm not committed.. I honestly do want my makeup to look airbrushed and perfect 24/7, but I'm just not good at it. That doesn't stop me from sharing from time to time though.. remember the 6 makeup hacks I posted last year? still getting hits on that one! 

No matter how bad I am at these things, I'm committed to trying them a little bit more, shaking up what's on this blog every day and keeping you guys excited and entertained! It's even on my bucket list for the summer: step outside of my comfort zone. But not just yet..

But to help me out, I asked my friend and sorority sistaaa to help me out. Madison is a super talented makeup artist, who started her own YouTube channel this year, and it is fab! She's also kind of hilarious (just read her tweets, you'll pee your pants!), and totally gorgeous (she gets tons of likes on Insta.. #jealous.. jk but she really is flawless!)

Since Urban Decay's Naked3 Palette came out, I've been wanting it, but knew I should save my $54 because I barely use the first Naked Palette that I insisted on buying. I was pretty convinced I didn't need the Naked3 until Maddie showed me these looks, and now I'm one step away from stopping by Sephora on my way home tomorrow..

Whether you are headed to work or a night on the town, the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette is so versatile, it may be the only one you ever need! These three looks build off of each other, starting from very simple and natural all the way to smoked out and sassy. Take a look..

Daytime


Used for the inner lid: 'Strange'
Used for the center lid: 'Buzz' and 'Burnout'
Used for the crease: 'Limit'
Used for the waterline: Use a white liner on the bottom and a black liner on the top. The white will make your eye larger by extending the whites of your eyes, while the black will make your lash line look fuller without the appearance of wearing liner at all!

After-Work
This look is a little more dramatic using a black liner on your upper lid and a brown on your lower waterline.  This look builds right on top of the first one, just incase you want to dress up your after work look without taking all of your makeup off!


Used for the inner lid: 'Strange'
Used for the center lid: 'Buzz' and 'Burnout'
Used for the crease: 'Limit' and 'Nooner'
Used for the outer corner: 'Factory' and 'Mugshot'
Used for the waterline: Use your favorite black liner for your upper lid, and a soft brown for your lower waterline.

Night on the Town
This look is by far my favorite! It’s so glittery and brightens up the face. It is dramatic enough for a night-time smokey eye without being too dark!


Used for the inner lid: 'Strange'
Used for the center lid: 'Buzz' and 'Trick' (Makeup by Madison Tip: Dip your brush into some eyedrops or MAC Fix+ before pressing 'Trick' to the center and inner corner of your eye. This will allow the shadow to be more pigmented and last longer so you don't get any fallout!) 
Used for the crease: 'Limit' and 'Nooner'
Used for the outer corner: 'Factory' or 'Mugshot' and 'BlackHeart'
Used for the waterline: Use your favorite black liner for your upper lid and lower waterline, and smoke out the bottom lashes with 'BlackHeart'.

  1. These make up looks are to die for, and I know what you mean about sucking at doing make up...even when I do muster up the time/energy/caffeine to try something bold with eyeliner or something I always forget that it's there and rub it off...oops!
