Urban Decay Basics Palette







My mum and her friends recently went to New York and whilst she was there I asked her to look out for an Urban Decay Naked Palette (better late than never as it seems everyone has had one of these for years!). Because I didn't specify which one,  she kindly bought me the "Basics" palette, however I was quite pleased with this as I have so many glittery shades that it will be great for everyday use. I couldn't wait to try it and watched some Youtube videos beforehand, however they were mostly showing off palettes "2" or "3" so I decided to go ahead and create my own look.




I decided to create a graduated effect with the different tones. The palette is really about buildable colour and I felt as though I had to put a few coats of each shade on to achieve the look I wanted. I wore this look for a night out and was happy with how well it stayed on, even though I didn't use any eyeshadow primer.

I'm looking forward to creating more looks with this, so let me know if you have one and how you use yours!
