Makeup For Mature Eyes Using Naked 2 Palette

Makeup For Mature Eyes

While I am not happy about Urban Decay selling to L'Oreal, like many of you I've had the Naked 2 palette in my stash for a while. This post is by request, and is a look I would create if working with this palette on someone with mature lids.  It's very simple to create. I've used the included brush since I know those who have the palette also have this brush. This look is also good for those with hooded lids, and will work well with any eye color. 

Here is the tutorial:

Step 1: After priming the lid, dampen the flat end of your Naked 2 brush with a rosewater & glycerin spray, or water. With a slightly damp brush pick up some of the color Bootycall onto your brush and apply it to your eyelid and slightly into your crease in a patting motion.  Side Note: If you don't want a shimmery lid, you can replace this color with Foxy, and apply from lash line to brow with a dry fluffy brush.

Step 2: Using a pencil brush apply Bootycall to the tear duct and under the inner half of the lower lash line. This will open up the eyes, and is great for mature or hooded eyes as well as close set eyes.

Step 3: With the fluffy end of your Naked 2 brush pick up some of the color Tease. Tap off the excess and sweep it just above your natural eye crease to create depth. This helps to open and shape the eye. You are basically contouring the eye, making it look more open.  Add more as needed. Next, apply Tease to your lower lash line using a pencil brush starting at the outer corner so that it meets up with the Bootycall we applied earlier.

Step 4: Flip over your Naked 2 brush to the flat side you haven't used yet. Pick up some of the color Busted.  Tap off the excess and apply to the outer third of your eyelid and just slightly into the crease. If your eyes are smaller, you may need to use a smaller brush.

 Step 5: Flip your brush over again, and blend with the fluffy side of your brush. Apply a little more color, then blend again. You want to gradually build color so it will last longer. The color should come up just pass your crease, not all the way up to your brow.

Step 6: With a push liner brush, pick up some of the color Blackout and gently push and wiggle the color into your lash line.

Step 7: Go back in with your pencil brush and apply Busted to the lower lash line starting at the outer corner and blending it in about half way.

Step 8: Using a fluffy brush, apply Foxy to your brow bone area and blend it down into the Tease color you placed in your crease.

Final Steps: Curl lashes and apply your favorite mascara. It's always a good idea to keep cotton swabs handy for clean up. For additional information on cleaning up and preventing fallout, you might find this post helpful:

  1. Lovely tutorial! I will try it :)

  2. Such a beautiful look! And I love that you stuck to, not only 1 palette, but mainly the brush included too! Great tutorial! Tutorials seem so daunting in print and you've done an excellent job of both describing and showing how to create the look! :)

    1. Thank you! I plan on doing a look for the Naked 1 palette soon too. I get a ton of requests for these, and I always like using stuff people already have. Thanks for reading!

  3. I LOVE that I came across this, just what I needed! I finally treated myself to this palette, but at 44 I was afraid it might be a bit too much shimmer for me and my style. These are great tips, a great look, very helpful. And a side note of applause for your anti-cruelty/kindness to animals stance!

  4. This is JUST what I needed. I finally treated myself to this palette, but was afraid I would not get much use out of it when I saw the amount of shimmer. At 44, shimmer products aren't high on my list, but I know there are ways to still use them. Came across this post, the tips and tricks and color choices, and it's just perfect! Very helpful, love the choices and the finished look. And a side note of applause and thanks for your anti-cruelty/animal kindness stance!

  5. This is a beautiful look, but for me mature eye means hooded with crepey skin like I have in order to have this title. I would love to see this look done on someone that has the type of skin I've mentioned and see that look on them.

  6. yours eyes are beautiful, but i dont see a single wrinkle or crease. i am 56 yrs old and could never pull this off. i was hoping for something more for MY age.
