An Urban Decay Face of the Day With Naked3: A Rosy Gold Daytime Smokey Eye

Wearing the new Urban Decay Naked3 Palette on my eyes

Whoa, boy. I am a sleep-sheepy today…but that wasn’t going to stop me from playing naked.

I mean playing with naked — Urban Decay Naked3.


Just a few shots of the look I’m wearing. I think it’s a little more wearable and daytime-friendly than the look I did on Monday.

I also incorporated some colors from the Naked and Naked2 palettes, just to see how well they’d work with Naked3’s rosy gold.

I think it went well.

Quick breakdown of what I used!

On my eyes I’m wearing…

  • The Urban Decay Naked3 Palette (shimmery rose gold Liar on my lids and glittery blackened rose Blackheart in the outer corners)
  • The Urban Decay Naked Palette (Buck, the matte brown shade, in the crease)
  • The Urban Decay Naked2 Palette(Foxy, the matte beige shade, on the brown bone)
  • UD’s new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Blackheart, glittery blackened rose from the new Blackheart and Darkside liner duo (along my lower lash lines)
  • UD’s new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion, a true black from the new Perversion and Pistol duo (water lines)
  • UD’s new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Venus a shimmery beige from the Venus and Crave duo (worn as a base all over my lids under the other products)
  • Clarins Be Long Mascara (my lashes)
  • MAC Brun Eye Shadow (brows)

On my cheeks and lips that’s…

On my face, that’s my usual combo as of late (here’s a post about it).

Sorry if I sound a little out of it today. I stayed up too late last night rereading Angelfall by Susan Ee (LOVE that book).

El Hub was sawing logs next to me, but I got so into my Kindle that I didn’t put it down until almost one.


When I’m tired like this, makeup always helps…

Maybe not as much as coffee, but it helps. 🙂

What about you? What kind of makeup are you wearing today? Anyone else out there wearing a smokey eye?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Thank you for doing more looks with the Naked3, its so useful to see it in action in more than one look! You look beautiful! I wore a smokey eye using the NARS Cordura duo. I love that thing, and smokey eyes.

    Happy Hump Day!

    I love this look! Definitely daytime appropriate, but still fun and sexy.

    I’m sick as a dog, but I had a big job interview this morning (stress=sinus infections, my body must have known I had an important job interview…). I did pretty bare-bones makeup – Sleek ReVive foundation, Becca Beach Tint in Fig, Concealer (Hard Candy Glamoflauge and Maybelline Dream Lumi), a little bronzer (Sonia Kashuk cream bronzer from spring) brows, liner (Chanel Khaki Precieux), and mascara (Chanel Le Volume in Khaki Bronze).

    I was going to do something more with my eyes, but I woke up later than I planned on, and being sick makes me not want to do a lot with my makeup! I also used the wrong face brush at one point and got a little sparkly, but hopefully no one noticed…

    You look beautiful! Gah! Posts like this make it hard to resist the allure or Naked 3.

  5. Alison M says:

    This is exactly the type of look I thought of when I saw the first promo images of Naked 3. I think people will be fairly surprised by how wearable it is after all. Lately I’ve been wearing Naked 2 daily with Naked lipstick. Just so perfect! And I’m having a major love affair with my NARS Radiant Cream foundation. My skin is loving the silky smoothness.

    AHHHHH! Karen, I love this! I can’t wait to buy this palette. Your recommendations are always perfect, and I’m looking forward to trying this on myself!

  7. Cindy says:

    I think this palette is beautiful and so so rosy and romantic which I’m really digging right now.

  8. Syrena85 says:

    Karen, you always look absolutely fab but this is like a live advert for UD Naked3. I love that look 😀

  9. Agata says:

    I love this look on you. It makes me so impatient to get Naked 3 but my hubby said I cannot get it till my birthday or Christmas.

  10. Erica says:

    Nice look with #3! I did a daytime smoky eye with Naked 1 today. It’s a great go to palette when you have an important day and little time. Your look is so pretty. Most pink eyeshadows look great on my lids, so I might be checking out Naked 3 after all.

  11. Beautiful look Karen.. The naked lipstick looks lovely on u.. I would love to see a only Naked3 look too on ur eyes.. 😉

    Love it so much – you look great. I did a smoky eye today courtesy of Naked 1 – Virgin, Toasted, and Smog. The lazy person in me appreciates how easy these palettes are.

  13. Denise S says:

    I really like this look, sexy yet not over the top. I slept lousy last night too! Gonna try sleepy time tea tonight and hope to get a good nights rest!

    Love the look, totally tired today too. Already thrown back 3 cups of coffee (8.30 AM here).

    I did a simple but kind of dramatic makeup look today: BB cream, Mac Vanilla all over my lid and then smudged some matte dark brown along my upper lashline in a bit of a cateye-liner version. Matched this with some Tarte cheekstain in Flush and Mac Viva Glam 1. Good to go and I don’t think it took more than 4 minutes ^^

  16. Bella says:

    What an absolutely stunning look. Instead of rushing out to buy the new palette I’m going to try to recreate this with the gazillion Nars shadows I have.

  17. breyerchic04 says:

    Gorgeous look as always! Need that palette and a couple of the new liners.

    All this talk about rose gold caused me to pull out MAC Nymphette lipglass again and this time I’ve actually fallen in love! For some reason when I ordered it, I thought it’d be more like Stila Kitten Lipglaze, which I love.

  18. Adrienne says:

    OMG, are you wearing the Nars luminizing concealer on your undereyes here? The texture looks amazing, I NEED to know what it’s from – maybe a layer of MUFE HD powder? Perfection!

  19. Rosie says:

    Wow! I’ve been following you for a while and I think your makeup skillz are getting better and better! Love this overall look!
    I’m particularly impressed by how impeccable the UD Glide One Eye Pencil looks on your lower waterline. How’s the lasting power? Every time I line my waterline, after a few hours it’s a disaster and I look like a drunk raccoon.

  20. Ava says:

    I love the rose gold color but didn’t think it would be possible with my skin tone. Just a pretty color to admire from afar but not with makeup but Karen – you have DONE it! I love neutrals and I love plums and anything in between. I was so bummed I missed the Laura Mercier palette but I think this one will take the cake. I am going to grab this the day this comes out 😉 Thanks Karen. You look fab with this look!

  21. Love this look Karen! Also like the sweater you’re wearing here.

    The whole effect is just so lovely, Karen… sort of a strong/soft look, like you mean business (but you’ll do it nicely, lol). One of my all-time fave looks on you!

  25. Christine says:

    Beautiful look on you Karen!

  26. Amista says:

    Gorgeous!!!! I would LOVE to see how this palette compares to Lorac Unzipped. I can’t decide which one i want to buy!
