Holiday Neutral Eyes ft. Naked 3 Palette

Hello lovely readers! I hope you're all doing well and had a great weekend. I've put up my review and swatches of the highly anticipated and coveted Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette on Sunday and since then, I've been getting a lot of requests on a makeup look using the palette. I'm very happy to oblige and here's a makeup look that is very holiday appropriate. This is a very easy makeup look and is also very wearable as an everyday makeup look since it's neutral and looks pulled together. 

Benefit Porefessional Primer - It's the holidays and whether it's just a family gathering or a Christmas party, we want to look flawless and pretty so it's a must to cover up those nasty pores. :)
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation in Natural Beige - Use a lightweight foundation that gives you medium to full coverage. I went ahead with this foundation because this is my favorite and it hasn't failed me. 
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer in Medium - Cover up those dark circles. Have a concealer that doubles up as a under eye highlighter too. 
NYC Sunny Bronzer - Contour the cheeks, the temples, and jaw area. We want a nice, natural contour going on here.
MAC MSF in Blonde - Using the darker pink shades, apply it on the cheek area. I love how this just makes the face glow. With the lighter peach/champagne shade, highlight the bridge of the nose, Cupid's bow, forehead and chin. When applying highlight, remember, less is more. 

Lioele Auto Eyebrow in Natural Brown - Fill in those eyebrows!

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin - Keep your eye makeup in place with a primer. I'm using this sample primer pod included in the Naked 3 Palette. Sin is actually a great base for these colors I'm using since it's a champagne shimmer. 
UD N3 Limit - With a blending brush, apply limit on the crease as a transition shade
UD N3 Nooner -  Apply it right on the outer V of the eyelid and on the crease 
UD N3 Factory - To have a slightly smokey eye look, Apply right on top of Nooner; the outer V and the crease area. Make sure you blend out the shadows together to create a nice blended out eye look.
UD N3 Trick - With a flat shadow brush, pack the color in the inner part of the eyelids
UD N3 Darkside - With a smudge brush or the tip of a flat shadow brush, apply to the outer corner of the lower lash line
UD N3 Strange - Apply under the brows as a brow bone highlight
UD N3 Dust - With a pencil brush, apply on the inner corner of the eyes and the inner portion of the lower lash line
Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liner in Pearl Brown - Line the upper lash line
NYX Slide On Eyeliner in Brown Perfection - Tight line the eyes
Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes Volum' Express MascaraWaterproof - Curl lashes and apply mascara 
Andrea Strip Lashes #21 - This is optional but since it's a holiday it's just nice to bust out those falsies. I'm using a natural looking false lashes for this look.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Brown Sugar - Keeping it simple, neutral and nicely moisturized!

That's it ladies! I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did. :) 'Til next time! Always stay pretty! ^^

    I've been wishing for one so bad, but they're just so expensive and I don't want to use too much on eyeshadow I probably won't even use. OTL
    Thank you so much for sharing this look though! It looks super pretty and simple on you. <3


    1. I think the Naked Palettes are a good investment though. :)
