Look of the Day 12/26 - UD Naked Smokey Eye

Hey! I'm Kaley, and I'm a freshman biology major (but may be considering changing that to chemistry... I don't know yet!). I don't have nearly as much higher-end makeup as Laura because I've always been the huge proponent of drugstore makeup... I'm getting into it now though, and I'm having fun playing around with the UD Naked palette at the moment. I have terrible skin that I'm working on bettering, so please forgive me, this is why I will mainly be focusing on eyeshadow looks and lips.

This was my look of the day for the day after Christmas (my first one since getting the Naked palette!) and I really love the dramatic black effect.

Products used:
     Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Sephora, $20)
     Almay Intense I-color Satin-I Trio for Blues (Walmart, $6)
     Urban Decay Naked Palette (Sephora, $50)
     E.l.f. Essential Liquid Eyeliner in Black (Target, $1)
     Almay One Coat Nourishing Lengthening Mascara in Black (Walmart, $7)
     L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Gloss in Blush (Walmart, $9)

What I did in 10 easy steps:
     1) First, I primed my eyes with the primer potion.
     2) Then, I used a fluffy brush to apply Buck to my crease, then applied Naked just
              above and blended that out.
     3) I applied a piece of scotch tape to the outer edges of my eyes.
     4) I used a flat brush to apply Creep to the outside of my eye, blending out the harsh
     5) Using the flat brush again, I patted Gunmetal onto the center of my lid.
     6) Next, I applied Virgin using a flat brush just under my brow bone and Half-Baked
              near the tear duct.
     7) Then I used a flat brush and applied a mix of Gunmetal and Creep to my lower lash
     8) I applied a bit more Creep to darken the look and blended that out, then removed
              the tape.
     9) I lined my top eyelid thinly, with a slight wing to match the tape line, then applied
              mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
     10) I filled in my eyebrows lightly using the darkest shade of the Almay palette.

That's it! Nothing too difficult about this one, and I really like it a lot. I'll certainly be using this a bunch when I don't have time to go for a new look! That's all I've got for now, I'll be posting a slightly modified version of this look with more of a cranberry tone very soon, so be on the lookout for that! Ta ta for now :)
