For Naked fans everywhere, Urban Decay has announced an all-new Naked palette that will finally help you master the smoky eye.
Aptly called Naked Smoky, the palette includes nine new, never-before-seen shades and three exclusive hues. Mattes, satins and sparkle textures cover the complete smoky color spectrum from warm bronzes and dimensional grays to rich browns and gorgeous taupes.
“In most Naked palettes, there is an undercurrent running through,” Naked founder Wende Zomnir told Refinery29. “Naked 1 was a bit more bronze-y, Naked 2 was more taupe-y, and Naked 3 was warm and rosy neutrals. [With] Naked Smoky, you have a range of neutrals — your basic matte shades, and then a mini collection of bronze, a mini collection of taupe, a mini collection of grays and blacks, and then this one eggplant. It’s a variety of color families you can dip into.”
The $54 palette will also include an exclusive double-ended brush; use the Tapered Crease Brush to expertly lay down shadow, define the crease and blend out color, while the Smoky Smudger Brush seamlessly fuses shadow and liner and can also be used to highlight the brow bone and corner of the eye as well as to smoke out the lower lash line.
If you don’t know where to begin, the beauty brand has listed step-by-step tutorials curated by top makeup artists to achieve four looks – the Iconic UD Smoky Eye, the Smoky Reality Star, the Smoky Cat or Everyday Smoky.
Mark your calendars – the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette hits retail stores on July 8. You can also sign up to be one of the first to know when the palette arrives on urbandecay.com.
