Holiday Look #1!
To kick off the month of holiday looks, I couldn’t think of a better palette to start with other than Naked2! For this look, I wanted to create a very light, simple “barely there” eye look and couple it with a brighter lip. The beautiful thing about this combo is you can pair it up with ANY lip color imagineable! I chose to go with a bright, darker pink which I feel sets the eyes of beautifully. However, wine or bright red shades would also be equally stunning here.
Yo’ turn! Which palette would you like to see a holiday look with next?
Close-up of the eyes:
- NARS Eyeshadow Primer
- Half Baked (crease)
- Chopper (inner and outer third of lid)
- Bootycall (middle of the lid as a highlight)
- Foxy (blend)
- MAC Blanc Type (highlight brow bone to tone down some of the yellow in Foxy)
- False eyelashes: “Doe-Eyed” from InkyMinkyLashes.com
- CoverGirl Brow & Eye Makers in ‘Soft Blonde’
- Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner
- L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in ‘Carbon Black’
- Bare Minerals Stroke of Light in Luminous #1 Concealer
- Revlon Age Defying Liquid Foundation in Fresh Ivory #05
- Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Liquid Seas of Illumination in “Sea of Clouds”
- The Perfect Cheek blush from MAC
- MAC Flat Out Fabulous
- UD Bootycall (dotted on the center of the bottom lip to make lips appear bigger)

Love it!!! Thanks to you, Z, it takes me longer to get ready in the morning but I look a lot better than I did in high school!
LOL!! That’s awesome! (The part about you looking better than in high school) 😀 It’s funny looking back on those pictures now knowing what we know and seeing all the mistakes! Haha! Live and learn! 😀
Hi Jennifer. I know what you mra me too. But I love it Z is great! !!
LOL! Thanks, Marlene! 😀
I second the first comment, I take longer to get ready now hahaha!! But I love it 🙂 so much fun to play with eyeshadow!
I’d love a holiday look with Naked 1 and Vice 2, to answer your question, if you get a chance!! Thanks so much for all of this 🙂
Ha! That is so true. No wonder I’m always so close to being late every morning…Oh well, it’s worth it.
Gorgeous look and application as always Z 🙂
LOL! Too funny, Sue!
Thank you! 😀
Haha! It most definitely is, I agree!
Vice2 would be a GREAT one to do a look with as it has some greens in there, thanks for the request, Theresa! 😀
Ahh! Looking forward to it!!
Haha me too! Helps to pre-plan my work outfit as well as my eyeshadow combo the night before, lol!
Totally agree with the ladies. Beautiful look! I really like UD ‘s Half Baked and Chopper. Love the lipstick and hair too. 🙂 How do you like Rouge Bunny Rouge’s highlighting liquid? Did you mix it in with your foundation or just use it in certain areas? Thanks for the look Z! 🙂
Thanks, babe! 😀
It was a little hard to capture the effects of the highlighting liquid in the pictures, but in person, it’s just gorgeous. I dabbed a tiny – I mean TINY amount onto the tip of my finger and dotted it in small amounts along the tops of my cheeks and blended in with my fingers after I applied my foundation, and before powder. It was so subtle, but very beautiful looking!
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! And I gotta buy some Inky Minkies! They’ look fabulous!
Haha! Thank you for the compliments and for considering them, Peggy! 😀 They have literally become my favorites out of all the lashes I own, and I am biased for saying that but even if someone else was selling them, I’d be hooked!
My choices for a featured palette would be either Vice2 or Stila’s In the Light (or In the Garden). All 3 are palettes I only own because of YOU!
Haha!! I’m so bad! 😀
Vice2 is a popular request, next up!
Looove this look! So elegant and perfect for wearing bold lips!
I only wonder if it would also work for slightly cool complexions… Normally I wouldn’t wear Half Baked (it’s a beautiful shade but it is definitely too warm for me)… do you think I can replace it with some other shade from Naked 2 still preserving the same effect of this look?
Hi Flavia! Certainly! Try YDK instead of Half Baked; that would look SUPER lovely, too! 😉
Thank you Zabrena, I will surely try!
Lovely! Are you going to be doing a look with the new Naked3 palette? I just ordered it and I’m looking forward to seeing some looks!
Absolutely, Courtney! I just ordered it so it’s expected in on Tuesday this coming week! WHOOO HOOO! 🙂
Wearing this look to a holiday party tonight! Didn’t have Flat Out Fab lipstick but am using Viva Glam 1! Love the idea of Bootycall on the center of the lips! You rock! 😀
You go, woman! 🙂
Yes! I love using Bootycall like that on the lips, makes them look FAB! And I bet Viva Glam 1 was utterly stunning with this eyeshadow!

Z – Just wanted to say, I absolutely love this site. You have become my Holy Grail! Thank you thank you thank you for being you. Want to purchase some eyelashes as well, but I just have the hardest time getting them on, they always hurt or they are uncomfortable, but maybe buying yours would be different. Anyways, just wanted to say THANKS for doing great looks.
Aw! I’m so humbled to hear that, Mandie! Thank you for taking the time to say that! 🙂
If you do decide on any of the Inky Minky lashes, we do have a 30 day return policy, money back guarantee! Just so you’re aware! I never want anyone to be unhappy with the lashes 🙂 Thank you for considering them! If you’re looking for a comfortable line to try that’s less expensive, I still highly recommend Red Cherry. Good ones to start with are #99 and #747S or #747M if you want a longer lash. 😉 Thank YOU for your support!
I just got my naked 3 in the mail and am having so much fun playing with all the colors. But I still need some direction with it as well. I am so anxious to see what magic you can do with it! Aaaahhhh
GORGEOUS!! I would have never thought to combine these specific shades with this particular placement. I love it! And u know how Naked 2 is my most fav. palette! Of course, my Naked 3 is on it’s way, so who knows…i may have a new fav. soon! 😉
i hope you will be getting Naked 3! i’d love to see you do a review & add it to your looks! 🙂
You know I love both Vice2 and Stila’s In the Garden. I’d love to see a holiday look with either of those beauties….(if you’re still taking “requests”)
Still taking requests! 😉 May make it a double palette look!
For all the ladies that love Naked 3, you can use Trick in place of Chopper. Both are lovely shades. 🙂
