If you’ve ever owned a Naked Palette from Urban Decay, you’ve probably held it in your hands at one point or another with little idea about what makeup look to try and create. A natural eyeshadow look? A smoky eye? A full-on cut crease? Whether you consider yourself a Naked Palette expert at this point in your life or you’re still learning how to wear different shadows together, we can all benefit from a fresh tutorial to change our everyday makeup look.
Grab the Urban Decay palette that brings out your eye color, and take a seat because we’ve picked out five different smoky tutorials to go along with the five different Naked palettes. Check ‘em out, below:
4. Take Blackheart and smoke out the outer corner of your lid. Taking very little pigment, slowly bring it into the crease and then go back to the outer V. Blend until there are no harsh lines and the smokiness is achieved.
5. Take Dust and Burnout, and apply to the inner corner of your eye as well as a bit to your eyelid.
1. Beauty vlogger Brianna Fox uses the Urban Decay Naked2 palette to create an easy, cool toned smoky eye.
2. Using the shade Tease, work the color into your crease using a fluffy shadow shadow brush. Follow by applying the same shade all over your lid using the “belly” of your shadow brush.
3. Highlight your brow bone using a small, flat makeup brush.
4. Apply Pistol on the center of your lid using a flat brush for a light shimmer. Blend out.
5. Using a flat brush, apply Blackout at the end of your lash line and stamp the color and then lightly “flick” the black shadow into the rest of the eye look. Blend out.
6. Use Tease again under your lash line and follow with Blackout right at your lower lashes. In your waterline, use your liner color of choice. Go in with Blackout one more time to help meld the gel liner into your lower shadow. Finish with L'Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara.
1. If the OG Urban Decay Naked palette is still your go-to, check out this tutorial by Stephanie Stipes of BabsBeauty on YouTube.
2. Start with the shade Naked for your transition shade. Concentrate this shade in your crease.
3. Build up your crease using the shade Buck, and blend. Apply Buck on your outer V and the inner corner of your eyelid.
4. Go into Hustle, deeping the inner portion of your eyelid and the outer V, making sure everything is blended.
5. Using Half-Baked, wet the shadow and pack it on the center of your lid, going above your natural crease for a halo-lid.
6. Apply your face makeup, followed by eyeliner in your waterline. Go back in with Buck and sweep in with a pencil brush on your lower lash line. Using Dark Horse, use a small brush to blend into your lower lash line as well.
