It's easy to assume that smoky eyes are limited to grays and blacks, but nay, there are endless possbilities. I turn to YouTube to demonstrate that anything is possible, including plums and navy blues. I'm not saying you should rock a smoky eye every day of the week, but I'm also not not saying that. I mean, if it matches with every outfit, what's the harm, right? Every time I get my hands on a new Urban Decay palette, I tend to use in incessantly for the weeks following. If you're anything like me, I'm about to give you a variety of options to mix and match.
The palette is sold for $54 and is available online now at UrbanDecay.com. Like I said, swoop it up fast because it'll be gone soon and who knows what madness will ensue at Sephora. When it comes in the mail, give these following tutorials a try. Once you go smoky, you'll never go back .
1. Gold Smoky Eye
2. Plum Smoky Eye
The thing about smoky eyes is that they can be done with any color, including the dark plum in the Naked Smoky. This color is particularly striking if you have brown eyes.
3. Silver and Gunmetal Smoky Eye
4. Neutral Smoky Eye
5. Dark Brown Smoky Eye
6. Blue Gray Smoky Eye
It's hard to tell whether that blue-gray color in the Smoky Naked palette is as blue as it is in the picture, but it can't hurt to try. If you need to recruit a MAC color, go for it. (Just don't use it front of your Smoky Naked palette – she'll be heartbroken).
Now, when are all these bloggers going to post videos of their own swatches and experimentations with the Smoky Naked palette? The suspense is killing me.
