4 Is Better Than 1 When it Comes to the Urban Decay Naked PalettesOctober 26, 2017
This year’s Naked Vault is finally here! The Urban Decay Naked 4 Some Vault is officially available and it’s going to be on a lot of people's wish lists! The Naked palettes are some of the best eyeshadow palettes on the market and each one is unique. You’ll want to act fast to score this year’s amazing vault! It retails at $185 but is a $264 value! It’s such a great deal and with limited quantities, it won’t last long!
Each palette has a unique colour theme and you can create all sorts of looks using them! The shades compliment each other perfectly while still offering a great variety of hues to play with. See how I create my favourite looks using each palette:
The original Naked Palette consists of 12 warm neutral shadows. While there are more shimmer finishes in this palette than mattes, there is still variety so you are able to create an assortment of looks with it! This is a great palette for everyday makeup looks and is a must-have for anyone's collection. This is my go-to eyeshadow palette for creating natural makeup looks and this is how I tend to wear my makeup most days! I use “Naked” as a transition shade and then apply “Buck” to both my crease and along my lower lash line. I apply “Darkhorse” to my outer corner and “Half Baked” on the remaining part of my eyelid. I then take “Sin” and pat it into my inner corner for a brightening effect! To complete the look I use the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Whiskey” on my upper lash line and coat my lashes with the Troublemaker Mascara. The best part about this look is that any lip shade will go well with it. Today I’ve opted to use the Vice Lipstick in the shade “Hex” as it is my ideal fall shade!
The Naked 2 Palette consists of 12 cool toned neutrals. Again, there are more shimmers than mattes in this palette but there is still a nice variety of finishes. I love this palette for everyday makeup but the shades can easily be built up for a more glamorous, evening look, which is what I've done for this look. I think this is my all-time favourite of the Naked palettes! This particular look is my go-to for date night. It’s slightly smoky and feminine, which I really love and it doesn’t take long to do! I start by using “Suspect” as my transition shade and then apply “Busted” to my crease, outer corner, and lower lash line. Then I apply “Chopper” to my lid using a damp brush. I spritz a little of the All Nighter Setting Spray onto my shadow brush before applying to make the glitter really pop! I then add “Bootycall” to my inner corner. To finish the look I apply the Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen and two coats of the Troublemaker Mascara. A neutral lip is the perfect way to complete this look and I’ve opted for the Vice Lipstick in the shade “Liar” to finish things off!
The Naked 3 Palette includes 12 rosy toned shades that are super feminine. The variety of finishes is evident in this palette as well. This palette is a must-have with rose gold being such a huge trend right now! I love the girly looks I can create with this palette. For this look I started by using “Limit” as my transition shade and then applied “Darkside” to my crease and lower lashline. I then applied “Buzz” to my entire lid before applying “Strange” to my inner corner. For liner I wanted to keep things simple with just a hint of shimmer so I used the Heavy Metals Eyeliner in “Grind” to my upper lash line and finished the eyes with one coat of Troublemaker Mascara. I wanted to stick with a pretty pink gloss to complete this look so I used the Revolution High-Color Lipgloss in “Kinky” to complete the look!
Lastly, the Naked Heat Palette has taken the beauty world by storm since it launched this summer. This palette is packed with 12 insanely beautiful amber-hued neutrals. While this palette is well-suited for summer and fall, I think you are still able to create holiday-appropriate looks with it too, making it very versatile! For this look I used “Chaser” as my transition shade before applying “Ashes” to my crease and lower lash line. I then applied “Lumbre” to my entire lid and popped a bit of “Ounce” in my inner corner. I used the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Perversion” to my upper lash line and applied one coat of the Troublemaker Mascara. I wanted to go with a bold lip to give this look more of a holiday vibe and opted for the Vice Lipstick in “Venom” to do so!
This vault would make the perfect gift for you or any of your loved ones who don't already own any of the Naked Palettes, but you could also split it up to gift to multiple people! As you can see, the possibilities are endless with this vault and you can create so many different looks with these eyeshadow palettes.
