The most anticipated sequel since The Empire Strikes Back, NAKED2 is a follow-up to the NAKED Palette ($50.00), which after two years on the market is still the best-selling palette and has DOMINATED YouTube makeup tutorials, reviews and tweets!
This 12 taupe-centric eyeshadow palette has amazing shades from the palest nude to the lewdest black — I have officially found my FAVORITE EYESHADOW PALETTE E-V-E-R. Perfect for creating anything from the no-makeup to the smokey, sultry look.
I played with two different looks: For the more neutral eye, I used Foxy all over the lids, Chopper in the center/lash line, Half Baked in the inner corners and Snakebite in the center crease towards the outer corner.
Please blend the dark colors, ladies! Layering eyeshadow is tricky and must look effortless. It should not look as if you’re painting by numbers! The crease end of the NAKED2 brush is perfect, exactly the kind of brush used for blending.
For the smokey eye, I used Foxy (again) all over, mixed in with Verve and then used Pistol to shade in the entire eye, adding Blackout in the crease towards the outer corner.
TIP: Dust loose powder (baby powder works well, too) under the eyes (on the cheek area) to catch any fallout, so you don’t have that smudged-punched-in-the-face look when you wipe it, or worse, ruin your foundation!
Let me start by saying, that this baby is built STRONG (Yes, I dropped it accidentally and none of the shadows shattered).
Equipped in a hinged closure tin case, NAKED2 contains a super-sized mirror armed with 5 new shades, a custom double-ended full-sized Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush (cruelty-free) and a mini Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked.

Evelyn’s Tip: If your shadows or any pressed powder ever do break, an amazing way to salvage your shadow/pressed powers is to add a few drops of rubbing alcohol, press together with a spoon and voilà: Good as new!
There is no reason why any doll would not fall in love with this palette. Best part about it is that it is meant to be used with the original NAKED Palette (getting that one too soon). NAKED2 Palette is available at Sephora, Sephora.com, ULTA, select Macy’s and UrbanDecay.com.
