Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Face Of The Day

Over the weekend, I finally got to play with my new Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. Since there are more cool-toned colors in this one, I opted for a soft, smoky look with gray and brown.

    • I liked the shadow brush a lot (it’s dense so it’s great for packing the color on) but thought the crease brush was a little too big.

    • Hi Jody,

      The Moisture Foundation is great! I discovered it when I was modeling for a makeup class by a Hollywood makeup artist a while back and apparently, it is a regular on movie sets and photoshoots. I love how it gives an airbrushed look but looks really natural.

      I haven’t tried the Aqua Foundation but was told it’s sheerer.
