Urban Decay Dirty Smokey Metallics Tutorials

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with a much-anticipated tutorial.  I'm finally doing a look featuring the super popular Urban Decay Naked Palette. I went for a dirty, smokey metallic eye that's super sexy for a night out.

Check out the video!

I've mentioned this on twitter before but the palette to me took some getting used to.  The colors are more on the neutral, cool side and at times can come up a bit muddy on the eyes.  Also some of the glittery shades have major sparkle fall-out.  However, it is a nice, convenient my opinion though, not a must-have if you already have a lot of neutral shades in your collection.

The final look!

Here's What I Used:

Ben Nye Neutralizer Cream Crayon
NYX HD Grinding Powder in True Beige
Jemma Kidd Bronzer
Kevyn Aucoin Blush and Celestial Powder
Skindinavia Original Makeup Setting Spray

MAC Indianwood Paint Pot
Urban Decay Naked Palette - half based, sin, hustle, creep, naked, virgin
Eve Pearl Black Pearl Liquid Liner
NYX Gold Pencil
MAC Black Funk Liner
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Bourbon
MAC Her Glitz Glitter Liner
Sonia Kashuk Glamour Lashes
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Iced Coffee
MAC Cork Lip Pencil

I totally agree that the Naked palette is not a must have and it looks on the cool side. The only shades I really use are the darker, warmer browns and the two matte shades for a crease transition. Thankfully I got mine for a birthday gift. Otherwise I was quite content without it. For the price, I'd rather make a Inglot palette!
