Get NAKED on Valentine's Day

When trying to think of the perfect makeup for Valentine's Day, the only thing that came to mind was UD's NAKED3 palette. Nothing is more romantic than these soft rose hues. I am confident no matter how you combine these shades you can do no wrong!!

1. Prime your eyes (as always)
2. Brush "Strange" over the brow bone & apply a nude cream shadow to the lid (Mary Kay Pale Blush)
3. Taking brush side 'a' sweep "Nooner" over the crease on the tip of the brush, blending out with the flat end
4. With brush side 'b', pick up a blend of "Dust" & "Buzz." Spray MAC Fix+ on a small dish or in the palm of your hand & dip the brush into the Fix+ getting the brush wet. Dab/press over the lid (don't wipe it)
5. Using brush side 'a', mix "Factory" & "Mugshot" to blend the lid with the crease, working upward. Apply this on the lower lash line as well, blending out to your fancy.
6. Taking a small contour or crease brush, use "Blackheart" in the outer V. Blend.
7. Optional: Add "Burnout" where "Factory" & "Mugshot" meet "Strange"... I add this in a very thin layer, just subtly to blend out
8. MAC Nylon in tearduct 
9. Add a winged liner (I used Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.... obsessed) & some mascara!
