My Top 5...Naked Palette Shadows

Hi everyone,
Here's another My top 5... post, and this one is about the much loved Urban Decay Naked palette.
I thought I'd share with you my favourite five shades from the palette and give some reasons why. :)

This is a gorgeous shadow for highlighting and using in the inner corner. Virgin is a slightly shimmery ivory colour, it's so soft and easy to blend. I think this is the perfect everyday highlight colour.

Half Baked
This is my go to lid colour for day or night, it's a true gold colour and the shadow is buttery soft and gorgeously pigmented. I love using this colour along with Smog to create a gold smokey eye for going out for the night. As you can tell from the picture this shadow is much loved and I was so happy when Urban Decay put this in their Naked 2 palette!

Buck is a mid toned matte brown shadow which has great pigmentation. I never use this shadow on my eyes, only on my eyebrows, for me it's the perfect, fairly subtle brow filling colour.

I use this shadow as a crease/outer corner colour. I would describe this colour as a rich, deep, shimmery, bronzey brown. I do also use this shadow on my lower lash line when doing a smokey eye look.
Sin was the first UD shadow that I fell in love with, I first of all had it in the Ammo Palette and I hit pan on that pretty quickly. Sin is a really pretty, shimmery champagne colour. It's wonderful as a brow bone hightlight or even as an all over lid colour.

    1. It's definitely my favourite, no other gold shadow has ever come close to this one, in terms of how much I love it. :)
