I'm going to invest in a Naked Palette, but I'm not sure what to go for?

I've got blue/grey eyes, and dark blond hair with blond highlights. I've got fair skin that does tan and rosy cheeks.

Any ideas which one to go for?

I would say naked 3 which has nice rose gold tones.

I think the 2 suits the vast majority of skin types.

I have 1 and 2, I did try 3 but gave it away as pink round my eyes makes me look ill if it's not a cool icy pink.

1 is generally classed as for warm skin, so if you suit oranges, golds, yellows etc

2 is for cool skin, so if you wear jewel colours and pastels etc

I'm cool toned but can use both smile

My DD has all three and is interested in makeup artistry, she also has highlighted hair and blue eyes though she is rather fair in skin tone and she recommends the naked 1 - the naked 2 only has one midtoned matte shade that can be used in the crease, and though you can use the darker shimmery shades for that purpose, she finds the shades in the naked one to be much more versatile and more suitable for every day. It is also totally possible to glam up looks with the naked 1. It's also more warm in tone - which she loves using to make blue eyes pop!

She rarely wears cool tones so she may be slightly biased. She also adores the naked 3 as well, but gets much less use out of it. It also works best with very fair skin tones, whereas the naked one can suit more skin tones (and therefore can look fab with a summer tan!)

Another amazing neutral palette is the original too faced chocolate bar palette. Has a few pops of interesting colours with different undertones, whereas the naked palettes are all pretty mono-toned (although they all are still firm faves.)

Dd wrote that by the way, I have no clue about make up

I have your colouring OP.

When I was in Debenhams last week, I asked someone on the UD counter to try some on me. She picked palette 2 and I was really impressed. Im going to get it when Ive used up some of my existing make up stash.

Just to add that MUA in Superdrug do dupes of the naked palettes for about £4. You could pick them up and experiment before buying the proper ones? smile

If you were to look at makeup revolution online you might want to peruse the iconic palettes... They have a 1,2 and a 3 winkwink
And the I heart chocolate (milk) palette might be v similar to the too faced chocolate one wink

I have all 3 Naked palettes and they're definitely worth it. I have dark hair, blue eyes and light/medium skin and prefer Naked 2. Also, although Naked 1 has some great shades the packaging can look shabby quickly. 2 and 3 have nicer, more practical packaging IMO.
