My go-to look w/ Urban Decay's Basics Palette! W/ steps!

Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette has been my go-to palette lately, when I do not have time to do a fancy look or too lazy to think about colors. I wanted to add more warmth to the look, so I added Mac's "Soft Brown" to the crease. It is so quick and effortless! I did not make a step-by-step pictorial for this, but I did add labels. Scroll down to read the products listed and steps!

Step 1: Apply eye primer all over the lid and brow bone. Take a big fluffy blending brush and sweep Mac's "Soft Brown" on the crease. I use Sigma E40 brush. 

Step 2: With a Mac 217 brush, apply "Faint" on the outer corner and blend. Go back with "Soft Brown" and  a blending brush to re-apply more color that may have been lost.

Step 3: Pack "W.O.S" on the lid. I used Makeup Addiction's The Shader brush to apply color. 

Step 4: For more definition, I added "Crave" on the outer v with a small smudge brush. You may need to add more " W.O.S" on the lid that may have vanished. Then, with no additional color on the Sigma E40 brush, I further blended the crease, just to get rid of any harsh lines.
Step 5: Apply "Foxy" all over the brow bone. Then "Venus" on the inner tear duct and the highest part of the brow bone. The brush I used is The Detailer from Makeup Addiction. 

Step 6: Apply your eyeliner. I use Maybelline's Eyestudio Gel Liner and a Mac 210 brush. On my lower lash line, is Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade "Perversion".

Step 7: Apply mascara and favorite lashes! I used Urban Decay's Super Curling mascara and Ardell Wispies lashes.


  1. Such a gorgeous look! We love maybellines eyestudio gel! we use almost everyday :) we can never manage to get the wing right though

    1. Thank you! The wing takes a lot getting used to and I don't get it right every time. I find the best brush that works well for the wing is a thin eyeliner brush, like the Mac 210. That way, I have greater control over the line and I can always build up the thickness.
