I gave some much needed love to my Naked 2 palette. I have been experimenting with various looks and I already posted a warm golden copper look here which I made with this palette, and so it was only fair to Naked 2 for me to do a cool silvery grey look as well.

I read a lot on Internet that the Naked 2 palette is not as good as the original, as it has more cool toned colors and the palette is not as versatile.

And then, I saw Evidence in the Urban Decay Smoked palette and I can’t believe that I had been missing out on such a regal shade. It really does look like the blue of Royals, and it was a real delight using it ( there I go Johnny English again! LOL ). Continue reading
This post is solely a tutorial featuring the Urban Decay Smoked palette (review here) and using TWO of my favorite shades from it, a beautiful shimmery taupe, Mushroom and a shimmery brown Barlust. I have mentioned before in my review how versatile this palette is due to the selection of color shades. And to prove that, I will be doing a series of tutorials demonstrating various smokey looks that have been created from this palette alone. Continue reading
