Day & Night Basic Makeup Looks (As Requested)

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

I was approached by one of my readers to do a day and night look using the Naked Basics Palette by Urban Decay.  I unfortunately didn't own the palette due owning very similar colours from Urban Decay and other brands, therefore I collected the eye shadows I did have that matched the eye shadows (to the best of my ability) in Naked Basics Palette.

Day Look

Used a neutral brown/taupe (Naked 2) on my lid and a dark brown (mix Faint and Crave) to do a soft cut crease.  Highlight beneath the brow with a matte white colour (Venus) and blend to perfection.

Tips:  Line eyes for more definition.
Use a soft blush and soft lip colour (nude or soft pink)

Within the Naked Basics Palette the shades range from light to dark to create basic but versatile looks.  From Left to Right they are:

Venus (soft, off-white demi-matte)
Foxy (very light yellow/white matte)
Walk of Shame (very light nude matte)
Naked 2 (taupe matte),
Faint (warm, dusty brown matte)
Crave (deepest, darkest brown/black matte)

I used what I had to create the looks keeping the above noted shades in mind. I used:

Urban Decay shadow in Buck (similar to Faint in the Naked Basics)
Kat Von D shadow in Leather (Matte deep dark brown used to warm up Buck)
Kat Von D shadow in Lucifer (Matte black similiar to Crave in the Naked Basics)
Smashbox shadow in Nude (similiar to Walk of Shame  in the Naked Basics)
Smashbox shadow in Vanilla (similar to Venus in the Naked Basics)

Night Look

Used a satin off white colour on the lid (Venus) Then continue with a wash of soft brown (Faint) on the entire crease from outer V to inner tear duct.  Deepen your outer V with a black shadow (Crave).  Highlight your brow with Foxy for the perfect finish!

Tips:  Use a bold lip to make this look more sultry.
Add a strong winged liner to the look.

Thank you Penelope, for the opportunity to play with my makeup with you in mind. It allowed me to push myself a bit further because I took into account your eye shape and skin tone.  If you have any other questions and or request please let me know.



  1. Keep up the good work Rozlyn, love the day look, I love the lip color, which one are you wearing?


    1. Hey Missy,
