It’s not easy to make sure I walk out of the door with makeup each and everyday. Some days I don’t wear it at all – I see no point! But there are the times where I feel the need to add a little extra ‘umph’ to this face. We all have that one product we turn to in order to make that happen. Mine happens to be the Naked eye shadow by Urban Decay. Yes, yes everyone and their grandmother has probably heard of this palette before. It’s extremely popular, and it already comes in so many different shades.
Well, I just have this one. And I’ll be honest – this is the only eye shadow I literally own. This is all I need – to take my look from being completely natural to glamorous when needed. Sounds impossible coming from a tiny velvet box, right? Some would ask me how I probably even live with just this one piece of makeup product. It’s simple: Colors look awful on me, I have dark, dark almost black eyes and these colors are the only ones that seem to compliment well with my olive skin tone. Yet, I can do so much with this one palette – I can use the colors as a bronzer, a highlighter, a contouring method, and so much more!
UB Naked is quite pricey, but so worth the money. And they have various editions of the Naked palette – all the way up to three now I believe! I have the original, which you can find here. If yo u’re not already an Amazon fanatic, get with the times, folks! With prime, shipping is free for almost anything, and if you buy in bulk for things – it’s cheaper!

Urban Decay Naked Palette Eye Shadow Challenge: Look 1 (NATURAL)
The first challenge look is the all natural look. This is rather easy, but some just simply overdo it. And I hate that. They go all in with the eye liner, fake lashes, pencil eye brows – no. No, no no. That’s not ‘natural’, sorry. And I’m the first to admit I have things I wished I had – such as longer lashes, fuller lips, distinct perfect brows, blue or green beautiful popping eyes – but I don’t. I work with what i got. And all natural to me means accentuating your natural beauty, not erasing it by masking it with make up. Natural is defined to me as: if you can stand out in the pouring rain and your face doesn’t look like it’s melting away, then you’re doing it right.
Now let’s begin! I have the NATURAL look Video Tutorial below, and I’d appreciate feedback on what you think!
