No peeking... I'm NAKED

Morning girls :) 

I, along with the rest of the Beauty Community, recently made a purchase which had been long awaited. The Urban Decay Naked Palette! 

Now I'm not going to go into great detail about the shadows, or do swatches as I'm sure you've all seen them around 237 times! 

I have however been playing around with the palette and I must say it has been one of my most exciting, worthwhile buys in a long time. The colours for me, a staunch neutral lover, are just perfect and can create looks for both night and day. 

Here is my FOTD from yesterday, with a 'Naked' eye...

Primer & Foundation are the usual Prep & Prime and SFF from MAC
I used Peachykeen & a touch of Dollymix blush from MAC with a hint of MSF in Soft & Gentle for a shimmery glow

For my eyes, I primed my lids with my MAC paintpot in Soft Ochre.. Haven't been converted to the UD Primer Potion (yet!) 

I used Virgin on the inner corners and then up to my brow bone for a highlight, I then placed Sin on my lid, but just up to the crease. 

Half Baked was used in a sweep through the crease as this is a gorgeous golden shade and catches the light well. To add a bit of interest and a darker outer corner, I took a little of Darkhorse and blended it well, creating a darker tone, but not being too over the top. Finally, I also used Darkhorse on a small angled brush to line bottom of my eye, again in the outer corner. 

The mascara which I used was a one which I have a love/hate relationship for. Sometimes I use it and it's amazing, other times, because of the size of the brush I end up with mascara everywhere! It is however, L'Oreal Extra-Volume Collagene..

To finish off, I used a nice subtle nude lipstick; Myself from MAC..

So there we have it, my first 'Naked' look for you all.. How rude of me!
