Valentines Inspired Makeup Using The Naked 3

I absolutely love my Naked 3 palette however I always find myself wishing that the pinker shades worked for me. In particular, the shade Buzz has always stuck out to me as it is such a beautiful pink. As Valentines day is fast approaching I gave it a try along with my Mac shadow in Phloof which is a gorgeous frosted white however I think it has a touch of pink to it. I actually fell in love with the result! Maybe pinks will appear on my eyes more often from now on...




1. First I applied Phloof to the inner third of my eye to brighten it up, I also added this to the inner corners at the very end. Buzz was the applied to the remaining part of my eyelid and I used a fluffy brush to blend these shadows to create a gradual colour change.

2. Nooner was then added to my crease. I love this shade and use it all of the time, it is the most gorgeous pinky/brown that really works great as a transition colour.

3. Another favourite of mine from this palette is Mugshot which I added to the outer v to create depth.

4. Finally I added mascara, winged liner and ran black eye shadow under my eye!







Paired with Macs Pink Plaid lipstick, this look is perfect for day time or even night if a little more brown is added into the crease. I might wear this look on Valentines day on a date with my boyfriend, if not I may just wear it at home on the lead up to feel extra fab!



Do you like to wear pink shadows?

  13. This is GORGEOUS Eilidh! Your blending is absolutely on point haha :D

    I love using pink and purple shadows. I think they work particularly well with green and blue eyes! and it makes a nice departure from my usual golds/browns xx
