I will be sharing some of my favorite Urban Decay Naked products and how they have forever changed my makeup game.
As a journalist, I am constantly on the go. I leave my apartment early in the morning for class, different interviews and to get the perfect shot. Sometimes my makeup would take a hit and not last as long as I would like. By the time I got to the point of being on camera, I had to reapply which was frustrating since I already had limited time. I decided to ditch a couple products I was using and invest in a few Urban Decay Naked products that solved all my problems.
I started using Naked Skin Complete Coverage Concealer. This product covers any blemishes and imperfections and creates a smooth finish. This helps finishing powder to form that airbrush-look that is so popular. My previous concealer was too oily and would smear but this one dries completely and is streak-free.
I have a couple of their palettes but the Naked Smokey Palette is my favorite! My mother-in-law gifted me this palette as a Christmas gift. I love the difference in matte and glitter shadows so I can mix it up. The purples and gray are my favorite since my eyes are green, but there are shadows that will compliment any complexion and eye color.
I don’t claim to be the best at contouring whatsoever, but Naked Illuminated Trio is another Christmas gift that has taken my makeup to the next level. I use them separately as highlighter, blush and bronzer. One issue is that they aren’t very pigmented. However, it makes it easy to not have to worry about purchasing different products. They compliment each other beautifully even though you probably have to put on couple layers.
Let me know your opinions on these products and what you like and don’t like. Also, share some other makeup brands that are your go-to for your daily makeup routine some of my other favorites are here and here.
