Three Looks, One Palette

As promised I have a different face to use in today’s blog! When I went home to the UK a few weeks ago I managed to persuade my little sister to be my model for the day. She’s only 15 and is just starting to get into makeup, so I decided I would show her how to use the eyeshadow palette she has to create three different looks. I thought this would be a good blog idea because at this time of year a lot of us were gifted eyeshadow palettes for Christmas so it might give some inspiration on how to get the most out of our new palettes.

The palette we used was the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.

I used the same base for every look, only changing the eyes and the lips. The products used for the base were as follows:

Armani luminous silk foundation, Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow pomade in taupe, Mac matchmaster concealer, Collection lasting perfection concealer, Barry M contour kit, Benefit sugarbomb blush

For the first look we went for a soft eye and a bold lip. The lip is probably not something she would ever wear but I wanted to show how she could use this eye look to go with any lip, bold or nude.

For this soft eye look I used the shade booty call all over the lid up to the eyebrow, tease in the crease and a little bit of blackout in the outer v and pushed into the lash line. Then I went in with lots of mascara focusing at the root to give extra thickness.

The lip colour used was Mac ruby woo, but as I said before this would look great with a nude lip for an everyday, polished look.

For the next look we went for something a little more glam. I created a halo effect using the shade snakebite in the inner and outer corners and the colour chopper in the center.

I teamed this with falsies and a nude lip gloss. I think this would be a great look for a school social or prom.

The final look was the most dramatic of the three. I went for a dark smokey eye and a winged liner. I used the shade tease as a transition colour through the crease with busted all over the lid and ydk in the inner corner.


I used a soft pink gloss on the lips to balance out the eyes and stop it from looking too heavy.

I hope this helps give you some ideas for creating different looks from just one palette. It can be helpful when traveling because it means you can just take the one eyeshadow palette and pack an extra handbag instead! Thanks for reading!
