The Naked Truth - Look no 3

Today’s day was (and still is) one of the most miserable days England can deliver. Rain, wind and gray clouds made it dark and sad.

When I was about to do my makeup for 3rd Naked look I thought I will try to make it bright and awake looking to counteract the horribleness outside. This look is very simple but perfect for those days when you need some help with looking good when really you just want to stay in bed all day.

I mixed two foundations together for this effect. Revlon Photo Ready 007 Cool Beige and Revlon Color Stay 150 Buff. Photo Ready is a bit dark for me and I feel it has too much sparkle, plus it can be a bit dry looking when blended into the skin. Color stay (Normal/Dry skin) on the other hand has a very silky finish and great staying power. These two mixed together are a perfect combination for glowy and fresh looking skin.
For cheeks I used really pretty and girly pink blush from MUA. It makes the face looking awake and healthy.
I didn’t want to make it all too pink and on the lips went for dusty rose lip liner and nude gloss.

Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal.
Now onto the eyes! I applied Sin on the upper lid, it made them look bigger and brighter. In the crease and lower lash line I used Buck and Naked mixed in together. I smudged Whiskey pencil on the upper lash line but made the line really thin because I didn’t want to close up the eye. I also added white pencil on the water line, again for that fresh, awake effect.


*Mac Painterly as a base
*Sin all over the lid
*Naked and Buck in the crease and lower lid
*Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara

Rest of the face:

*Revlon Photo Ready and Color Stay foundations mixed in together
*Garnier Roll On Anti-Dark Circles in Light ( I haven’t got a big problem with dark circles so this is perfect for me to cover up a bit and highlight the under eyes. If you suffer from dark circles this probably isn’t enough to cover them up)
*Mac Studio Finish concealer NC20
*MUA blush shade 2
*Barry M Natural Dazzle bronzer
*Maybelline Longlasting lip liner in Rosewood
*Sleek Pout Polish in Bare Minimum
*Max factor eyebrow pencil
*Elf eyebrow kit in medium

I also wanted to add this link for a smoky eye option. I created this makeup a while back with Gunmetal eye shadow from Urban Decay Book Of Shadows II. Since this shadow is in Naked palette I thought I will share my previous makeup experiments with you :)
If I was going to create that look now, I would definitely add black eyeliner all over the eye and smudged it with Creep eye shadow.

I hope you enjoyed my Naked miniseries. I really enjoyed playing with the palette and coming up with new looks. Hope it gave you some makeup ideas and inspired you to give those shadows some love :)
