Let’s get Naked again!Because everyone is going cray-zay about the cleverly-marketed Naked 3 palette, I decided to whip out the first ever installment of this eyesome threesome which, in all fairness, isn’t as neglected as the Naked 2 – but definitely less abused than the Lorac Pro. Also, I’ve been having this inner compulsion lately to show old makeup products as much love as possible which led me to thoughts like.. I wanna use all the shades in the Naked 1 palette!! Let me disappoint you now, I failed at the task and was not able to use all. At the 8-shadow mark, I had to erase everything and start over. Obviously, it wasn’t made to be worn all at the same time. Have you worn a dozen shades in your eye makeup ever? Anyway, that’s not saying it can’t be done, I think it can… just not by me. Maybe a makeup artist or a really skilled makeup enthusiast (with a loooot of lid space to use up, at that) can pull this off. Any challenge takers? The shades I used are all marked with the little black arrows on top. If you want to see how many I managed without my eyes looking like that cup of water where paintbrush has been dipped several times to wash off color, just keep on reading…
Naked Virgin SinUm, no I’m not talking about anything other than makeup with that subtitle. It’s not as if I don’t get enough “naked mom” searches leading to this blog, anyway – sorry to disappoint you folks (for those of you who were here for something other than a mom with a Naked palette)! Anyway, I used Sin in the inner third of my mobile lid, Virgin as a highlight on the browbones (which is way overdone but I was too lazy to fix it) and Naked to blend two shades together.
Half-Baked DarkhorseTwo main shades for this look are the above-mentioned. Half-Baked for the center 1/3 of the mobile lid, with Darkhorse in the outer 1/3. In my first attempt, I used Sidecar and Toasted with these and ended up blending everything together that it looked like I had a pair of glitters I put eyes on. So for the size of my lid and skill-set, these were really all I could manage. I used Naked to blend out the harsh edges.
CreepIf you’re here searching ‘naked mom‘, that’s for you. Kidding. For the last shade, I used Creep on the very outer part of my V to give just a hint of definition and contour. I think I also used a tiny smidge of Smog in there, because I really wanted to use as much as I could. The result?
What I Learned During This Play Session1. I need blending lessons. First, I really feel frustrated that I tend to blend everything together despite not intending to. Maybe it’s my brush, but I blame my lack of skills, too. I use a MAC 217 and a NARS 13 for the job, btw. The NARS 13 brush is much fluffier so I don’t use it as much, especially for my small lid space. The MAC 217 is really my go-to blending brush but it seems it’s still quite too big for smaller-scope blending jobs. Any blending brush suggestion, friends? 2. Eyeliner and I are not friends. How do you guys clean up any eyeliner mess on top without ruining the already-finished eye makeup!? I hate putting on eyeliner with a passion sometimes because I have shaky hands that I can’t even put it on without poking my eye or going beyond the normal width. Ugh. Also, every time I clean up with a q-tip, I end up ruining the eye makeup I’ve so carefully blended that I just want to sit in the corner and cry. 3. I’ve managed to use a total of 6 (pushing it at 7 if I count the tiny bit of Smog I used) shades, which is a feat for me, but is just daily normal wear for those who I follow on Instagram that do really beautiful eye looks. However, I believe I took almost an hour to do just the eyes for this, which made me wonder how I can ever pull this off on a normal day. I obviously couldn’t unless I develop some ninja eyeshadow skills so it’s back to using two-three shades max.
NOW SHARE!That’s all for today’s makeup play. Would love to hear your thoughts on — how many shades do you usually use for eye makeup? What’s the most number of shadows you’ve used up in one look? Excited to hear your answers!
