a new series has arrived… and what a start. just a week after I filmed everything, Urban Decay announced that they’re discontinuing their iconic Naked Palette, which is precisely the first one to be featured on my little Post-Youtube Beauty Hall of Fame.
it’s a piece of makeup History, and has marked countless first steps of millions of people in makeup. it’s no small feat to be the responsible for the complete rethinking of the concept of a makeup palette that is “beginner-friendly” throughout the whole industry. plus, this palette alone launched dozens of talented at-home make up artists into stardom.
featuring a pretty nice assortment of neutral but versatile shades, I dusted it off and tried to see if it still lived up to its cult status — by doing 4 different looks.
today I come to you with 4 variations on red, all with no faff, not frills, no complicated techniques. all you’ll need is your fingers and maybe a couple of brushes, at most.
I think red is a colour that suits all skin tones, it’s quite edgy and out of the box, but can be worn in a very sleek, chic, and grungy way. going from very bold, to more subtle, to glittery, I hope I have combined enough ideas for you to overcome any fear of red eyeshadow and it making your eyes look weird or swollen.
I was going out with some friends that evening, after filming my mini-haul video, so I decided to record myself getting ready, and use some (plenty) of my current favourite products. Some you’re sick and tired of hearing me talk about, some I’ve done reviews on, some may be a new discovery for you.
I hope you enjoy this video. All the links to the products are down below.
