One of my favorite makeup artists in the blogging community is Monroe Misfit. She does amazing makeup that not only enhances beauty, but is also very artistic and expressive. Recently, she did two looks featuring the Naked palette and of course coming from her, they were absolutely gorgeous. I purchased the Naked palette myself a few months ago and wasn't exactly blown away by it so I put it away for some time. After reading her blog, I pulled out my dusty palette and attempted to do the second look that she featured. My technique could certainly use some refining but I loved the way it looked!
The first two pictures are from before work, and the rest are taken after work. I usually take pictures after work because I don't have time otherwise, but I snapped two before in to see if there was any difference.
-Eve Pearl Priming Moisturizer
-Smashbox Foundation in Light 3
-L'oreal TruMatch Foundation in N6
-Laura Mercier Setting Powder
-NARS bronzer in Laguna
-MAC Mineralize Blush in Feeling Flushed
-NARS Multiple in Copacabana
-NYX JEB in Iced Mocha
-Naked Palette: Sidecar, Virgin, Sin, Buck, Naked, Creep, Darkhorse
-Milani Liquifeye liner in Black
-L'oreal Extra Collagen Mascara
-Stila Lipglaze in Kitten
I pretty much followed the instructions for this look on the blog, but substituted a few things like the base and the eyeliner. I don't like to repeat looks but I can see myself wearing this one a few more times.
So silly of me to think so little of the Naked palette. I guess it has some potential after all. And then there's the Naked 2.......
