Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

Hi Lovelies,

It is that time again, another product review.

Today I will be reviewing the widely loved – Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. I have heard so much about this palette and there was a lot of buzz surrounding it’s release.

Well, my verdict… I love it. The are a few main points as to why this palette is worthy of all it’s hype.

The colour range that you get in Naked 2 palette is amazing. Of course it goes to say as with any Urban Decay eyeshadows, they are very pigmented. The eyeshadows go on well, they have a great texture and can be easily applied. They blend very easily and because of this you can really achieve a flawless look. The colour range is very complementary, there are many shades that can be used as a highlight under your brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes. There are also plenty of shades that can be used on the entire lid and a lot of them can be mixed to create a more subtle or dramatic look. And lastly the all important shades that create the smokey eye, from browns to a matte black, they are all there.

When I use this palette, I am able to create many different looks. You can easily go from day to night and create a look for any special occasions.

The packaging is also very good with this palette, it is sturdy and the colours stay put. It also comes with a dual brush in case you are low on brushes in your collection.

My overall rating is 8.5/10 – I really enjoy using this palette, the colours, texture and pigments are amazing. The eyeshadows also have great longevity and last all day and night.

I love using Tease on the crease of my eyelid to blend out a smokey eye, Foxy as a highlight colour under my brow bone and YDK for smoking out your bottom lash line.

Have a look at my Bold lip using the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette on my makeup channel on youtube, makeupbydulcelissa.

I hope this inspires you to create more bold and stunning looks. It is always fun to try new and exciting products, there is no right and wrong way of doing things, just what ever works for you.

Have a great day and remember stay sweet xoxo

Fast Foundation Advice – Tip #1

Hi Lovelies,

Foundation is probably one of the most important steps in creating a flawless look, so applying an undetectable base is the first step!

Here are some simple tips to ensure you make the right choices.

Tips:

If you’re shopping at a department store

#1 – Swipe three possible matches on your lower cheek or jawline (the shade should closely match your neck as well as your face)

#2 – Take a mirror and head towards a window or outside so you can see what it looks like in the natural light (very important)

#3 – The colour that fades into your skin without .much blending is the winner

If your shopping at a drug store/chemist 

#1 – Determine whether your skin tone is pale/medium or dark

#2 – Using your skin tone, use the bottle shade name as a guide

#3 – Pale skin tends to have redness, so it’s best that you stay away from pink-tonned foundation, look for colours like beige or buff to neutralise redness

#4 – If you are in the middle/medium look for tones that have warm undertones. Choose colours like warm , medium or golden.

#5 – Dark skin hues should look for colours like tan, sable or chestnut

Remember these handy hints next time you are looking for the right foundation. Be sure to keep in mind that the right foundation does not mask your face but simply blends out any of your imperfections and still shows the true beauty of your skin.

Enjoy your day loves and stay sweet xo
