Cheap and Quick DIY • Create your own Colourful Gel Eyeliners

Yesterday i was testing and playing around with some products.I wanted to make a bold look with some colourful eyeliners, but there was something missing…I had no liners with me, exception made for a black liner.
That’s when an idea came to my mind: Why don’t I create my own colorful liners?
I had a bunch of shadows and loose pigments, a liquid concealer and a concealer wheel that I was gifted in a store and that I never used.

It’s mainly a matte palette with a minimal and compact design and with five shades out ouf six completely matte.
This came out in December 2012 and was love at first sight! As a matte finish lover and as a great Urban Decay fan, this palette had to be mine.

Now, let’s see more in depth what this palette is about.

Urban Decay is coming out with a new handy palette from the Naked series, the Naked2 Basics!

As many of you know, in December 2012 Urban Decay released one of my most loved palettes ever released, the Naked Basics Palette. For those of you who don’t really know what I’m talking about, the Naked Basics is an Urban Decay handy palette with five out six matte shades and an highlighter. The Naked Basics complements the original Naked Palette with mostly warm neutral shades.

*I uploaded a proper review of the original Naked Basics with some swatches and tips. Check it out here. In a few days on my Instagram i’ll post a look done only with the original Naked Basics. Come check me out!

Well, no one expected them to come out with a new Naked palette and not even this soon! They teased us two days ago on their Instagram page with this picture:

When is the Naked 2 Basics coming out?

It’s only a question of days, because the official launch is scheduled for August 19th , but you can already find it as a “coming soon” product on the urbandecay.com site.

What does characterize this palette?

The difference between the original Naked Basics and the Naked2 Basics stays in the undertone.
As the Naked Basics complements the original Naked Basics, the distinctive element of the Naked2 Basics stays in the fact that it complements the Naked 2 Palette, since it has mostly cold taupy shades. However, I see this performing well with the Naked 3 palette too.
