Naked 3 Evening Makeup Tutorial

This makeup tutorial is centered around the Naked 3 palette. I’ve been using this palette so much, but I think it’s just perfect for the summer. It’s not too heavy and has the most gorgeous pinks. For this, I used Strange (highlight), Limit and Buzz (lid), and Factory (crease and bottom lash line). This look is super great for the evenings since it has a little darkness to it and also some shimmer. I’d love to wear this out at dinner for a date night. So let’s get right on into this tutorial! eyeshadow 1. Above are all the colors I used (sorry if it’s a little difficult to read). So I started with my eye primer potion from Urban Decay. I applied one drop of it for each eye. You really don’t need too much of this stuff to cover your whole lid! DSCN0727 2. Next, I took Limit and Buzz (mixed together) and brushed them over my lid. They’re some of the most beautiful pinks in the palette and I think they’re great start off an entire makeup look. I will also sometimes take MAC’s Fix+ onto a brush and then use Buzz if I want a more pigmented color. But for this, I wanted to keep it subtle. I used my Sephora blending shadow brush to apply this.

In order to get something perfectly blended, it usually takes quite a lot of back and forth motion with the brush. DSCN0746 4. I then took my Sephora precision shadow brush and loaded it with the shade Strange. I layered it on top of my lid where Limit and Buzz are. I wanted my eyes to be a little brighter so I knew this almost white color would help. DSCN0750 5. Using this same brush and a little bit of the fluffy crease brush, I took Strange and popped that under my brow for a highlight. I made sure all of this was perfectly blended together with the crease brush. I then put Strange in my inner corners also to add as a highlight. On my lower lash line I put in Factory with a smudge brush. (For this step I basically focused on highlighting and detailing with the lower lash line). DSCN0760 6. Now comes the tricky part. Winged eyeliner…always a hassle. But it always looks nice in the end so its worth it! I use the Stila waterproof eyeliner. It’s probably the best eyeliner I’ve bought. I start at the middle of my lid and bring the line out to the edge. I try to make a very thin line and build up as I like. I then face the point of the pen out and bring in my wing. I know most people flick out the wing, but I find I have a better time bringing it in rather than out. Image7. Last thing to do was to apply some mascara. Lately I’ve been using this one from Clinique. I actually don’t know where this is from or even if they still offer it, I’ve had this one for quite some time. I simply put a couple coats of this on my top lashes and one on my bottom lashes. After I curled my lashes, the look was finished! I don’t apply fake lashes, but if you’re going for a more dramatic look, those would work just fine! DSCN0795So this is the finished look, I hope you guys enjoy! The lighting isn’t amazing in these photos, but I hope you all can still see the different shades. Let me know if you have any advice about taking these kinds of makeup shots or ways to enhance the way your photos look. I’d love to learn more and get some feedback!DSCN0809DSCN0810
