I have been asked time and time again for my advice & recommendations on the best eye shadows to purchase. I am a huge lover of mac eye shadows and have a lot of different mac colour shadows in my kit, but these can work out expensive for the consumer who wants to build up a nice collection of colours quickly for personal use. My top recommendation to clients who wish to add to there collection or for ladies who are just starting to get into make up is always the fabulous Urban Decay Naked palette which comes in a range of different types. There is one to suit everyone in this fantastic range.
I am always asked for my opinion on these popular palettes, so Here is a blog post to tell you all more information about them.
The outer packaging of my much loved urban decay palettes
First up is the original the “naked” palette from urban decay.
I have adored this palette from the first day I got it, as you can see from the picture below I have hit pan on a number of the eye shadows which I use on a very regular basis.
I find this palette filled with very warm and neutral shades that will suit almost everyone, however I find myself reaching for this palette most often for those with darker hair tones, I find the eye shadow shades really suit brunettes very well.
I have absolutely loved the naked 2 palette since it’s launch both for me personally and also on clients, I would have said it was my favourite but that was until the naked 3 came out! Now I am torn between both!
The shades in this again suit almost everyone but I particular love the soft pastel pink shades in this on blonde or fair haired clients. As you can see again I have hit pan on some of my favourite shades in this palette.
Next up is the The naked 3 which was launched in December 2013.
I love the shades in this palette also. It is ideal for the lady who likes a pretty, feminine & girly look. This palette has stunning shades In soft nudes & rosy tones. So super pretty. The shades in this palette are tones that I love to wear personally most often.
There is a palette in the urban decay naked range to suit every taste & style.
Each palette in the range above contains eye shadows In both shimmer & matte shades. Each palette contains 12 high quality, long lasting eye shadows which is fantastic value for money! I usually purchase my palettes from Debenhams they retail at around €44 per palette which is great value.
I find these palettes fantastic for gifts as every lady will love & use these.
They are also fantastic and light for travel and one palette is enough to bring as each palette has shades that will bring you from a soft day time look to a more dramatic nighttime look. So convenient & versatile.
Each palette comes with a brush included and also a little gift such as a lip gloss, a nice little extra.
Another palette In this range that I find myself using a lot is the Naked basics palette.
This is a small & convenient palette with 6 neutral eye shadows. I love this palette to and find it fantastic for clients who like a more matte look on their eyes.
I hope this has answered some of your questions in relation to eye shadows, and also these popular palettes.
The new Naked Smoky palette has just been launched and I can’t wait to get my hands on it, I will let you all know what I think when I do.
