Urban Decay Naked 3 Look #2: Taupe Dreams

Here's a fun fact about me. I am obsessed with taupe, to the point of I perhaps should be locked up somewhere for it! I find it such a versatile little colour, perfect for throwing on the lid, or as this look demonstrates, using in the crease to define and create the illusion of a crease you could fall into. 
A lot of people presume the Naked 3 is all rose gold, which it is, very much so, but here I forwent the rosy gold tones for something deeper, smokier and edgy. I love how sleepy and feminine taupe can look and with"Darkside" it really is the perfect balance between grey and lavender. 
So here is today's look, something I personally would wear day to day, a little more dark and edgy but still with a feminine twist.

I do just want to point out that Dust was probably one of the worst shades I have come across. A bit like the infamous Midnight Cowboy, the texture is very gritty and didn't adhere to the lid well. It gave my lid a very natural rosy sort of look, but  was blended away very easily. The shade is finely milled and just like its name, turns to dust upon contact with a brush and this in turn did lead to fall out on my cheeks. Just something I noticed but it really is the only bad player in this palette. I actually ended up using Strange for most of the look as Dust just didn't wanna work. Stay tuned for something a bit more smokey and nighttime appropriate next!

  2. I'm with you on the love for taupe! A gorgeous, matte taupe is incredibly versatile because it's the perfect shade for brows and contouring on fair skin! Creates the perfect, natural shadows rather than shades of brown which always look a little off.
    I've never bothered with any of the Naked palettes because I rarely use shimmery eyeshadows on myself or at work.
