Naked 3: Eyeshadow for work to drinks

I love makeup. I love the process of doing my makeup, and I love how seeing the final result too. But, even I’ll admit, I hardly ever wear eyeshadow to work. I barely have time in the mornings to put on my foundation and concealer, let alone eyeshadow and liner.

There is an exception though— when I know I have plans after work, I try to up my face game a little. Whether it be dinner with my mom or drinks with my girlfriends, I like to be ready to go straight from work, because if I go home to redo my face, there’s a solid chance I won’t be leaving again!

Here’s where Naked 3 comes in. The warm, pink tones are so flattering and can create so many soft looks that are perfect for transitioning from the office to the dinner table.

This is one of my favorite looks to create from the palette! I hope you enjoy the look and make it your own. All products are linked!

Naked 3

Yes, I put on eyeliner BEFORE  shadow. I put it on before to give the effect of smoky, soft liner, because I’m not really good with pencil liner (I know that sounds ridiculous). You can also line your lids with the darkest color in the palette, Blackheart, after you finish your eyeshadow for the same effect. I do that often too, but I find that Blackheart has REALLY bad fallout for me and I’m not about that life. Maybe I just got a dud though, so feel free to try that!

Use Strange as base. I use a big, fluffy brush to spread it across my lid and brow bone to cover the whole area. I also like to go in with Reserve Your Cabana  (a “bronzer” form Wet & Wild) over Strange to give it a little more shimmer.

Then, use Burnout with a little Limit mixed in as your transition color. This just means you sweep it into your crease, and a tiny bit above, to define your eye shape and to make the darker colors blend in easier. I use a 99 cent Wet & Wild crease brush that I personally think is the best on the market!

Go in with Nooner on the outer crease if you want to darken the look a little. I have pretty big eyelids, so I like to make my crease really defined with this color! I also just love Nooner in general.

Finally, use Factory as your outer V color— this is just another fancy makeup term that means to sweep the color in a sideways “V” shape, from the outer corner of your lash line and in the very outer part of your crease. You can even stretch it out a bit and make it just past your crease, towards your temple, to widen your eyes!

And you’re done! The look is a great way to up your makeup game for work, and take it into the night without feeling like you just came from, you know…. work.

P.S.- If you don’t have Naked 3 and are looking for a drugstore option, I think NYC’s Demi Lovato palette is definitely comparable! I love that palette, and you can’t beat the price tag. 

I hope you enjoy this look and let me know what you want to see next!
