Hello ladies! As I mentioned recently, YouTube videos are something I am trying to do a better job with this year in terms of uploading more. I am super excited to be bringing you one of my favorite makeup looks ever using my Naked 3 palette. This look is perfect for Valentine’s Day so hopefully you can gain some inspiration from it.

To begin this makeup look I am starting by priming my face with the Nivea Men’s Shave Balm. This will keep my makeup lasting all day and prevent any creasing from my face makeup. I am also going in with the Urban Decay Primer Potion and prepping my lids for the shadows to come.
To start off with the face makeup I am taking the Covergirl True Match Foundation on a damp beauty blender and buffing this into my skin to even out my face and provide a light to medium coverage. I am then setting this with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder to keep from getting oily as the day goes on.
I am using the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer to cover my undereye circles and any other imperfections I might have. To set that I am using the banana powder from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.
I am then prepping my eyes with the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade ‘Barely Branded’. This will make my shadows last all day and stay as vibrant as when they were first applied. For the eyeshadow I will be using the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I am first going in with the shade ‘Limit’ and applying this to my crease as a transition shade. I am then taking the Wet N Wild Glitter Single and applying a bit of this to my lids. This will keep the shade ‘Dust’ from the palette extra glittery and opaque. I am then applying the shade ‘Factory’ to my crease. To ensure a seamless transition between the shadows I am using the matte shadow ‘Nooner’ from the palette. Lastly I am mixing ‘Mugshot’ and ‘Darkside’ and applying this to my outer V and lower lash line with a tappered crease brush.
I am then using the Anastasia Dip Brow in the shade ‘Blonde’ to fill and shape my brows. To highlight my brow bone I am using the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in the shade ‘Milk’. To finish off the eyes I am using the Smashabox Full Exposure mascara on both my upper and lower lashes.
I am then contouring using the Lumene Bronzer and then highlighting using the shade ‘Vanilla’ from the Anastasia Contour Kit on the tips of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and cupid’s bow. I’m adding a bit of the Wet N Wild Blush in the shade ‘Pearlesecent Pink’ to tie the look together.
And lastly, I am using the Buxom Full On Lipstick in the shade ‘Rouge’ for a simple completion to the look.
I love this makeup look because it is not too dramatic. It’s soft but still glamorous and that is why I reach for it so often. I really hope you all enjoyed this video/tutorial.
