Urban Decay Naked Palette - Natural Eye Looks

I managed to snag the Urban Decay Naked Palette a few months ago when it was first released but I never really talked about it because I felt like it was a "been there, done that" item in the beauty blogging world. However, I have received a few requests in the past couple months to post a couple looks using this palette so here it is. 

L-R: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, and Gunmetal, 24/7 Eyeliner Duo in Zerop and Whiskey

Look #1:
Virgin on lid
Buck in crease
 Darkhorse in outer V
Whiskey liner on upper lash line

Look #2:
Virgin on lid
Buck and Smog in crease
 Hustle in outer V
Zero liner on upper lash line

I don't think this palette is essential, especially if you have a lot of eyeshadow already or you have a few neutrals that work really well for you. I think it is a great starter palette, great for travel (though it is larger than I personally like for travel), and a nice-to-have for makeup addicts. 

Were you able to get your hands on this palette? What do you think of it?


  1. I'll be doing a similar post soon with tips for almond-shaped eyes! I mostly do very similar looks to yours :) I love my Naked Palette! x

  2. I think it's definitely an essential palette...for me, anyway. I'm a college student so that means I'm in school a lot. On the weekend I can go crazy if I feel like it, but when you have 30 minutes to get up, make your bed, take your medicine, get dressed (sunscreen, clothes, skincare, makeup AND hair) and be out the door for school, neutral is fast. The Naked palette goes far because I'm not hunting around for a pencil or another shadow because it's all there! I actually don't end up putting so much makeup in my bag (if I put in any at all) because I didn't finish.

    This palette is rather addicting. I got it two months ago....and I've maybe touched my other four palettes once? I'm still trying to figure out how to wear Creep comfortably. I don't wear that dark of a color normally. Gunmetal looks wicked over Strut (Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow/liner); Gunmetal is the same color, only packed with shimmer and glitter.

    My favorite combo to wear to school is Virgin on the lid and brow, Naked on the whole crease, Buck on the outer crease, Darkhorse (or Smog) on the outer v and 1/4 lower lashline and Whiskey on the top lashline.

    I've learned to do that entire eye in, I think, two minutes tops. I have to go fast! Sometimes I skip the outer v and lower lashline all together. Depends on the time crunch.

  3. @Rocaille I knew we had similar tastes!!! Can't wait to see your post!

    @nn21 Thanks dear. =)

    @Katie I hear ya on the convenience of this paletter. I will be doing some smoky eye looks so I will do one with Creep just for you!!

  4. I've been thinking about getting one of these. Thanks for the great swatches.

  5. @marissa Let me know what you think if you do pick it up!

  6. Hi....may i ask what contact lenses you are wearing?
