Simple Smokey Eyes With Urban Decay Naked Basics

As promised, I am finally posting the exclusive tutorial using the UD naked basics palette. I love this palette; it saves me so much time in the morning. I can create beautiful neutral looks or a base for my look with it. Keep reading to see how I accomplished this look!


Begin by priming the eyes with a yellow base. This will complement any eye color.

Cut the crease for a distinct line. Make sure to use a smaller brush for added precision.

Line the upper lash line and waterline with a matte black. I decided to use a powder instead of a pencil or liquid eyeliner for a softer, smoked out look.

The last step is the lashes. I used my triple mascara technique so I wouldn't have to use false lashes. Start by applying a clear mascara. After it has dried, apply a mascara with more of a liquid base to it. Finish it off with a thicker mascara to make the lashes extremely bold!

From these photos, you can see where I placed the shades. The middle two were used as blending colors.

That's it! See how simple it is to get bold, dramatic eyes? Tell me in the comments if you have the Naked Basics palette. If so, what is your favorite look? Thanks for reading!
