Prom Makeup | Glamorous Smokey Eye using Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Hello, hello! I'm back this week with another Prom / Evening makeup look. This time I used the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette to create a more smokey, glamorous eye! If a Prom isn't on the agenda, you can definitely rock this at any formal event, cocktail party or even a dressy night out.

Naked 2 is the palette that I take with me the most when I travel because of its very wearable browns and golds on the left side! But, to spice things up a bit, I decided to stick with the more silvery, gray colors on the right side for this look. I started out with the brighter, silvery shade in the inner corners of the eyes and faded into the darker, more rich tones.

To make it more dramatic, I decided to pair it with an orange-red lip -- I guess the phrase 'go big or go home' can be used here...

Instead of using a gel, or liquid liner, I smudged the black shadow color, Blackout, along the lash line and up towards the crease on the outer corner. I did use a black pencil liner in the upper waterline to make the lashes seem thicker and darker.

Below, I have outlined what shadows I used and where. I have also included all the product names and brushes I used on my face, eyes and lips at the end!
