  1. Perfect timing in posting this!! I just got this palate friday, we FINALLY got a Sephora here and I won a 100.00 gc at the opening! Totally tried this look today and I love it!! Please post more of the naked 1!!

    1. Oh my gosh congrats on the giftcard!! That is awesome!! I will try to do another tutorial soon, but in the meantime, try Toasted on your lid, a tiny bit of Buck in the crease and Hustle on the outer corner for a darker look. The pinky/purple tones are really pretty!

    2. It was pretty much the most exciting thing that happened to me all month! ha! no seriously! i just posted on my blog why it was a total Jesus thing!

      I will try this tomorrow! I have blue eyes and have found that purple really brings out the small flecks of green in them. Thanks!!

  2. I love! I will have to try this look for work tomorrow! I also use the same eyeliner and mascara. I would be lost without them :) Gorgeous!

    1. Ah I know right? Ironic, but my dog are that eyeliner the day after I posted this :-( Surving on my "backup" eyeliners now! Haha
