Naked Arab makeup look..

.. or should I rephrase: Arabic look with the Naked palette!

I thought I'd delve into this favourite palette of everyone's, as I haven't done many neutral colour looks/FOTDs. Personally, I love my bright colours, but as this palette is undeniably a better best seller out of all UD palettes I may aswell use it to do a look that can inspire others =)

I chose to do another Arabic look as I'm getting in the mood for my holiday to Dubai on Sunday.. So I'll be away for a week but I'll be back soon, so bear with me!

Products used:
> UD tinted moisturiser in Bulletproof
> UDPP
> NYX JEP in Milk
> Naked palette: Virgin, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse and Creep
> La Femme pressed eyeshadow (refill in Z palette) White 
> MAC fluidline in Blacktrack
> UD 24/7 eye pencil in Zero
> MAC studio concealer in NC35
> Eylure Girls Aloud lashes in Nadine 
> UD brow box in Brown Sugar
> UD baked bronzer in Toasted
> Sleek blush in Pan-Tao
> UD lip pencil in Wicked
> Sleek pout polish in Sugar May

After using Bulletproof tinted moisturiser all over the face and filling in the brows with the Brown Sugar box, I used the UDPP all over the eyes followed by NYX JEP in Milk.
For the inner corner I used Virgin, followed by Half Baked and Smog on the middle of the eyelid. For the outer corner I used Darkhorse and Creep to make Darkhorse darker. I used La Femme white eyeshadow for the browbone, but you can use any white eyeshadow for this.
To line the eyes I used MAC fluidline in Blacktrack, making sure to line the waterline all the way round, including the inner corner of the eye. Using a thin liner brush, I drew another flick with MAC fluidline creating a "V" shape from the outer corner of the eyes.
I added Eylure lashes in Nadine from the Girls Aloud range, although I think Kimberley lashes would have suited this look better!
After concealing under the eyes, I used UD baked bronzer on the cheeks forehead and chin, followed by Sleek's Pan-Tao blush on the cheeks.
The lips were filled in with UD Wicked lip liner (soft pink colour) and Sleek pout polish in Sugar May.
And here's how it looked:
 
I hope you like this look, I loved doing it and am quite pleased with the results.. so here's some inspiration for the Naked Palette lovers out there!
