Back to Basics with UD

Hi Everyone! Just a quick thank you for sticking with me through my absence there over the last 2 months or so, i really appreciate it. Now tutorial time! When I saw the Naked Basics palette, I knew it was meant to be, being the neutral freak that I am, and so it was a late Christmas present to myself (damn you impulse buying!). Here I just did a very simple basic look, daytime friendly, just to test the palette out more so than anything! Smokier looks coming soon!
I primed my lid with UDPP as per usual.
On a flat shader brush I took the colour Walk Of Shame and did a wash of it all over the lid up to the browbone.
On a small shader brush, I placed a little bit of Venus in the inner corner and just under the browbone for an iridescent highlight.
Next, on a large blending brush I swept some Naked2 into the crease softly and also under the lower lashes.
On a stiffer blending brush I deepened the crease and outer corner with some Faint.
I lined my lashline with Crave and an angled brush.
Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara.
I filled in my brows with Catrice Brow Kit.
Mac Well Dressed Powder Blush and YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Peach Passion.

  4. Great look, so simple. I was toying with buying the basics palette but I've decided against it as I've just too much make up.
