Lazy Smokey Eyes with Urban Decay Naked Palette

I have been in a makeup slump lately. Not so much with being bored with it, just not wanting to wear a whole awful lot of it. I'm still trying not to wear foundation unless we are going to a special event or I need it to last. This has trickled down to me not really wearing much eyeliner or wanting to do a lot of steps resulting in a pretty low maintenance look.

This is the look I've been sporting lately. It takes about 10 minutes and lasts really well. It's mostly flushed cheeks and a very lazy smokey eye. Fresh and easy.

To get this look I used the following products:
Revlon PhotoReady Concealer (around nose and on any spots)
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium
Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef
Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer in Light
UDNP "Naked" for eyebrows
UDNP "Halfbaked" all over eyelid
UDNP "Smog" and "Darkhorse" on outer V and lower lashline
UDNP "Virgin" on browbones and inner corners
UDNP "Naked" to blend on crease
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara in black
By using a dark brown on the outer V and lower lashline I get the effect of eyeliner with none of the hassle. It's a very wearable smoky eye that's even appropriate for daytime. I love this look with a pinky lipgloss, something sheer. No fuss.
What are your lazy day makeup tricks? 


  1. Lashes, lashes, lashes is my trick! For class I usually just do foundation, blush, and mascara. Nothing is wrong with a fresh, flawless face! :)


    1. Lacey, I couldn't agree more! Lashes are a girls best friend! A little trick I learned from Mally Beauty is to pull your lashes up and in as you apply mascara. It sounds totally wierd, but it ends up opening your eyes and making you look awake and fresh. It's a good one!
