FOTD: UD Naked Palette and MAC

Ha! My first FOTD, whaddya know?! I still have to figure out a better lighting situation that really allows my camera to pick up on my shadows. Funny, it zeros in on my breakouts, but not on my shadows. Go flippin' figure.

Anyway, this was from yesterday but I never got a chance to post it. This is has actually been an everyday look for me since I really love a subtle smoky eye for the daytime in fall, paired with a nice nude lip. It's quick and easy, which is convenient.... being a mom and all. I've been showing my Naked palette A LOT of love since, if your a neutrals gal (like myself), this is all you really need to pull off any look -- whether it's subtle or dramatic.

Please excuse my messy, pinned up hair, haha

- MAC Paint Pot in Painterly (though, Bare Study helps the colors pop better)
- Colors used from the UD Naked palette: Sin (all over the lid), Half Baked (on the inner corners of the eyes and in the center of the lid), Dark Horse (just a little bit on the outer crease but it's hard to see because this is what I meant by my camera not picking up all the color, also applied on the outer third of the lower lash line with a pencil brush (like the 219)). 
- UD liner in Zero, applied to the upper and (outer third of the) lower lash line. I typically don't apply liner to my waterline, unless I'm going for something really dramatic, since it makes my eyes look smaller
- Loreal Telescopic mascara in Black / Brown
- NYX eyebrow cake powder in Taupe / Ash

- NARS primer
- MAC Studio Sculpt NW20 (mixed with moisturizer)
- TheBalm, TimeBalm concealer (Lighter than Light)
- Rimmel pressed powder in 01 Translucent
- Light contouring with NARS Laguna
- MAC MSF in Petticoat, just a little bit!

- MAC Hue (Glaze), the lightest nude I can pull off without looking washed out. I just dab this to my lips instead of applying it the normal way because then it looks too unnatural.
