Naked Bronze

Hello pretty earthlings! I hope you're all well!

Urban Decay's Naked palettes have proven to be one of the holy grails to many people, including myself. Personally, I like their very first Naked palette the most because I love my bronzy, brown shades. A few weeks ago, I decided to bust out my Naked palettes to use for a Raya open house and was contemplating between Naked 1, 2 and 3. But I, of course, ended up using Naked 1 and that happens all the time! Can never say no to Half Baked in that palette.

To cut to the chase, here are the products I used!

  • MAC Face And Body foundation // Real Techniques Buffing brush.
  • Rimmel Stay Matte powder // Real Techniques Multi-Task brush.
  • theBalm Bahama Mama bronzer // Real Techniques Contour  brush.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz.
  • Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner.
  • Maybelline The Falsies mascara // Shu Eumura eyelash curler.

And here comes the main star of this blog post, the Naked Bronze look!

  1. Blended Buck onto the outer crease to create depth // Holika Holika fluffy blending brush.
  2. Applied Half Baked onto the first half of eyelid // Real Techniques Base Shadow brush.
  3. Applied Smog on centre of eyelid and blend it into Half Baked to ensure there are no obvious, harsh lines that separate both shadows // Real Techniques Base Shadow brush.
  4. Applied Dark Horse onto the outer-V of the lid and blend it into Smog to create a gradient effect (a gradient effect is a transition of a lighter shade to a darker shade) // Holika Holika fluffy blending brush.
  5. Using my ring finger, I dabbed it into Half Baked and applied it again on the first half of my eyelid (repeating step #2). This will intensify the look, as applying with your finger (with its  natural warmth) deposits more product than using a brush to do so.

  • NYX's soft matte lip cream in Monte Carlo

And here's the completed look! :)

I really think a bronzy with a smoked out eye-look is a timeless one. You can combine it with a bold lip color, like red, and it will give you a foolproof, classy evening look. You combine it with a more subtle, neutral lip color (and also applying less of the darker eyeshadow at the outer-V of the eyelid) and ta-da!, you get a more wearable, daily look.

I hope this post has helped you and as always, thank you so much for reading! Have a wonderful weekend ahead of you!
