Smokey Eye with the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (And The Perfect Pale Pink Lip!)

This weekend we had my work holiday party so I wanted to glam it up a bit.  I used my Urban Decay Naked2 Palette for the entire look. I love this palette.  It’s perfect for natural, daytime looks and it has everything you need for more drama.  Below is a picture of the palette.  Half Baked was a lovely gold color that fell out and broke, so you’ll see the sad empty slot.  😦

Step 1:  Prime eyes (I use MAC Paint Pot in Painterly)

Step 2: Use the two lightest colors (Foxy & Bootycall) all over lid and on brow bone.

Step 3:  Combine Suspect and Pistol on brush and apply all over lid.

Step 4:  Combine Verve and YDK on brush and apply to the inner part of lid.

Step 5:  For the smokiness combine Busted and Blackout on a crease brush (just go back and forth between both colors to get a good mix of both) and start by applying on your outer ‘v” and brushing upwards into crease.  Repeat until you get the smokey look you want.

Step 6:  Blend blend blend!  Using your crease brush blend your crease colors until it’s smooth and even looking.

Step 7:  With a liner brush, combine the darkest colors again (Busted and Blackout) and line under eyes.

To complete the look I lined my lid with Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner and then lined my waterline with Covergirl Perfect Point Plus pencil in Black Onyx.  For lashes I primed them first (of course!) with MAC Prep + Prime, then applied several coats of L’Oreal Telescopic mascara.  I just bought this after hearing Carli Bybel rave about it…not in love with it.  I still swear by Voluminous.

I always opt for a soft lip when wearing dark eye makeup.  After hearing that Kim Kardashian gets her perfect pale pink pout by combining MAC Angel lipstick with NARS Turkish Delight gloss on top I decided that would be the perfect look for this dramatic eye.

On the rest of my face I’m wearing NARS tinted moisturizer, Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, MAC blush in Dame and MAC Mineralize SkinFinish in Soft & Gentle (which gives the luminousity).

Do you have the UD Naked2 Palette?  What’s your favorite way to use it?
