Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette

Who doesn't love a smoky eye? Well this palette is perfect for creating that go to look for a night out or even just an everyday smoky eye! 

I am a big fan of the Urban Decay Naked palettes ever since I recieved the Naked 2 Palette for my 18th birthday. So when this came out I just knew I had to add it to my collection.


The packaging is made of plastic and has a magnetic opening. I personally prefer this packaging to the rest of the Naked palettes. 

Once you open the palette up there is a full sized mirror, a double ended smoky smudger/tapered crease brush and it includes a mix of 12 shades which are matte, satin and shimmer. 

"Experiment with warm bronzes, dimensional grays, rich browns and deep blacks"

The shades in this palette are: 

- High
- Dirty Sweet
- Radar 
- Armour
- Slanted
- Dagger
- Black Market
- Smoulder
- Password
- Whiskey
- Combust
- Thirteen  



I feel that all these shades are wearable even for a day to day look. The shades are highly pigmented and the blend well. The only thing I have found is sometimes I have a bit off fallout when I use the shade Armour so either tap off any excess or do your eye makeup before your foundation. 

What is different about this palette is that Smoky contains a step by step guide for various different looks. Which includes: Iconic UD Smoky Eye, Smoky Reality Star, Smoky Cat and Everyday Smoky. The guide is easy to follow as it tells you step by step what to do regarding which shade, where to apply and what brush to use. This is great for inspiration and getting to play around with the different shades. 

For me personally I do prefer the more brown/nude/pinky tones (which are found in the Naked 1,2 & 3 palettes) for my day to day makeup but I'm loving using this one for a bit more of a dramatic look on a night out. I would love them to also bring out a palette for purple/burgundy shades as I think that would be perfect for autumn/winter time.

Things To Do In Autumn

Hello Lovelies! 

Can't believe we are in September already! How fast has this year gone? Summer is over, autumn is now arriving and the leaves will be starting to fall. I love autumn, colder days and nights calls for blankets and hot chocolate!

Here are some fun ideas on what to do this season. 

Go on a walk
Visit your local park or take your dog for a walk in the woods and go searching for conkers.

Cosy night in
What’s better than a cosy night in by fire with a loved one or simply enjoying your own company. Make yourself a hot chocolate (don’t forget the marshmallows) and grab those blankets!

Get cooking
Get yourself in the kitchen and get cooking. Why not make a homemade soup, my favourite at the moment is butternut squash! Delicious.  Check out pinterest for some recipes.

Buy candles
You can buy candles all year round if you’re a candle lover like me. Although I love lighting candles especially at this time of the year, it makes the house so cosy. Why not try Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick.

Go to a bonfire
Remember, remember the fifth of November. I love a good bonfire! Who doesn’t love the smell of burning fire and the sound of fireworks whilst you’re stood out in a field all wrapped up in your wellies with a sparkler in your hand writing the letters of your name.   

Carve a pumpkin
Time to get creative. Doesn’t have to be a scary pumpkin, use your imagination.  

Toffee apples
Every bonfire when I was younger I use to always get a toffee apple. Why not make your own! Doesn’t have to be toffee, you could use chocolate and sprinkle them with hundreds and thousands.

Ghost walk
It’s the perfect time of the year if you like being scared or wanting to know about the paranormal. Check out what ghost walks/hunts are on in your area.

It’s getting closer to Halloween. Why not organise a Halloween party for family and friends and get dressed up or decorate your house up all ready for when the trick or treaters arrive. 

Scary movie night
It’s that time of the year where all the horror films are on TV. Get your girlies over, a partner or if you are feeling brave watch them by yourself. Watch them in bed or why not bring your quilt down and snuggle up on the sofa. Turn the lights off for a better atmosphere, grab the popcorn and make sure you have a pillow to hand. 

What will you be doing this Autumn? or Leave other suggestions in the comments below!
