A couple of months ago, I shared my thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. In my previous post, I mentioned that I wanted to share some looks I create using that palette, and this post is exactly that! Urban Decay Naked 3 3

I used four shades from the palette, Strange, Limit, Nooner, and Darkside. They are all matte, except for Darkside, which is a satin finish. These are the descriptions for each shadow according to Urban Decay: “Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte), Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte), Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin).”

Urban Decay has a great eyeshadow primer, Primer Potion, that I used under these shadows. It really helps the colors pop and keeps your shadow crease-free and in place all day.

I used Limit all over my lid and as a transition shade. It’s a fabulous neutral that goes well with so many different color combinations. I blended Nooner in strategically to darken it slightly before adding Darkside in my crease. Strange is my current favorite shadow for highlighting my brow-bone. It’s perfectly bright and crisp without being shimmery or over the top.

I also used a combination of Nooner and Darkside to line my lower lash line. It’s great to line your lower lash line with corresponding shadows for a softer look than eyeliner. Urban Decay Naked 3 7

I still love the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, and I know I’ll be able to use it for so many looks in the future! The matte shades I used for this look were just as smooth and blendable as the shimmer shadows, which I really appreciated. Urban Decay Naked 3 9
