I’ve had a love-hate relationship with my Naked 3 palette. Leaning more to hate. I was actually gonna sell it, but somehow as soon as I made that decision, I took the palette and I did my makeup with it.
And then I did my makeup again with it…
… and suddenly it was the only palette I used.
The problem with the palette before was that the shimmery colors lacked pigment. Solution: using them wet or on top of a glitter primer. I can’t believe I didn’t realize this before! In this makeup look I simply just wet my brush before going in with the shimmery colors. Now it works fine! The matte shades in the palette are great and pigmented, so now I don’t really have any complaints about it. I like the cool shades in the palette and it compliments my eyes beautifully.
And we’re very much in love now.
About this makeup look:
This week we had another photoshoot with Susanna and I did my makeup as I’ve done it a lot lately: using this eyeshadow trick I contoured my eyes first, and then I applied a shimmery shade on the lid with a wet brush. I wanted my base to look flawless but glowy, so I first went in with a primer, that gives a beautiful glow. Then I used my Double Wear, which is amazing for photoshoots or special occassions, because it’s full-coverage and super long lasting. I contoured my face using my favorite contour kit and on my cheekbones I used the Zuii highlighter (which is bomb!). On my lips I’m wearing one of the nude shades from IsaDora.
