I just bought the naked 3 pallette and was really excited about tge lovely peachy pinky colours but its turned out to be a big disappointment - the colours don't really show up when I apply them and the glittery shades are so loose they don't apply very well and just fall off! Am I the only one this has happened to?
Yes. I was stopped by the girl in debenhams who raved about the second one. Told her I wasn't impressed by the first and that I gave it away. She persuaded me. Got it home and tried it out to find it was rubbish so took it back to her.
I use one of the matt ones first all over - always a good idea with glittery eyeshadow as it helps them stick better. I used the palette last week to do a friends make up for a wedding, off the top of my head I think I used:
Liar - all over, just a light "wash" applied with the fatter end of the brush Buzz - use the smaller end, and pat the flat of the brush on to the powder and apply it to the eyelid like that: don't rub or sweep the brush, just gently push it on to your eyelid with the flat side of the brush. I used this all over the eyelid i.e. on the bit that's directly on top of eyeball! Mugshot - outer corner and crease of the eyelid
I then blend these quite well , I have another urban decay brush which has a longer end like this which I use for this.
I then used a little bit of darkside just on the very outside corner - literally patted a dot of it at the bottom outside corner of the eyelid, and blended.
I also used them very lightly under the eye almost as a liner which works really well.
Once this was all really well blended, I then used dust as a highlight on the inner corner of the eyelid, again patting it on.
I think the key is that these aren't shadows to sweep on.
I can try to do my eyes with it later and take a picture if you want?
TBH I think they are probably all good for pale. I'm very pale (see above!), and I have 1 and 3 but would quite like 2 as well. 1 is more browny/golden tones, 2 is more taupes, and 3 is more pinky. I think 3 is paler than 1 but they're quite flexible
If you're getting fall out from the glitter ones, try dampening your brush. Or get a neutral cream eyeshadow (maybelline do some) and put that on - if you then pat the eyeshadow on when it's still cream and not set, it grips to it
This morning I put it on using my finger after thinking "i want it to look how it does when I put in on my hand" which was better but dust still doesnt come out as nice which is a real shame as its such a pretty colour. So if you know of an eyeshadow that is that colour let me know.
