So back in the day I would often make animated gifs/videos of myself showing off my outfits..very vain, yes. But later I stopped because they would slow down my site alot and I was just lazy.. So I found all that footage and made a vain behind the scenes video from it. Those are mostly my older looks, many of which are horrible, but anyways..
That moment when you arrive on location, pick a spot with good light, put a camera on a tripod, fire a testshot and then realise the intrvalometer is not connecting to the receiver, which means I can’t take any pictures without touching the camera. I then realized I did have a backup remote in my bag saved up just for the snafu moments like this one, but it was hardly functional. Working once per every 3 releases maybe.. so it’s quite astonishing that I don’t look like i’m about to murder someone on all of these pictures. Didn’t end up with too many shots to choose from though, so it is what it is…

So I ended up getting Naked Smoky palette. At first I wasn’t sure if I really needed it, but I tried it out in store and decided that I probably do..
I won’t do swatches or anything, there must be a ton of them on all over the web already, so just a quick personal opinion here
Yep, I didnt get too adventurous with the makeup, it’s just a classic smoky eye.. I mostly used Slanted and Dagger . Whiskey on the lower lid, High on the brow bone
I have Naked 2 palette and to be honest I’m not using it as much as I thought I would. Long story short, most colors are too warm and metallic/shimmery for me, so the smoky one is much more up my alley.
As for the case, I do prefer the Naked 2 tin..I’m not sure if acrylic will look as fancy overtime, as it’s very prone to scratching, but it does still have an expensive feel about it with the magnetic closure and actual hinges
As for the eyeshadows, I’m not sure if the palette could stand completely on its own. It doesn’t have a pure matte black shadow which is kinda essential for the smoky eye look. Black Market is quite dark, but not the blackest black and it’s shimmery too, so not that great for eyeliner purposes.
Naked 2 and Naked Basics have just the most perfect matte blacks anyways, so personally I don’t mind that it’s not there.
And I also thought it could use some more dove grey / light brown shades, for the less dramatic look. So guess, Naked 2 Basics actually completes it rather perfectly.
I didn’t like Armor one at all, as it’s very glittery and the specks don’t stick too well, so it ends up being scattered all over my face..so probably won’t use that one at all.
The warmer shades Dirtysweet and Radar also feel like something from Naked 2, so obviously wasn’t too thrilled with those two either, but aside from all that I’m loving it:)
