Agony guru Aunt Flo gives one reader the answer to all their smoky-eye woes: Urban Decay’s Naked smoky palette.
Taken from the 10th Birthday Issue of Wonderland
Dear Aunt Flo,
My attempts at a smoky eye make me look more panda than Ms Kunis. I’m a bad work-woman who blames her tools – what can I use to remedy my ocular plight? Sub-orbitally Challenged, NW6
Before you do anything, you need to get naked. Then, you need to get hold of Urban Decay’s new Naked Smoky Palette, a divine collection of 12 neutral shades, ranging from warm bronzes and sparkling taupes, to shimmering charcoals and deepest black. Incorporating the same standardly excellent components of velvety texture, rich colour, stayingpower and blend-ability, the obliging folks at Urban Decay have also included a set of tutorials alongside a double-ended brush – imaginatively titled Tapered Crease (rude) and Smoky Smudger – for your convenience. The brush is perfect for highlighting and tightlining and clear instructions inform as to the best ways to get smoky. Top makeup artists contributed to the compilation
of Urban Decay’s instructions, and with an eyeshadow wand as exclusive as this one, you’ll have no excuse not to get extremely naked. Wave goodbye to panda eyes, and sweep a bit of No. 2, Dirty Sweet, over those luscious lids.
See you at the naturist end of the beach, wearing nothing but Urban Decay.
P.S. You can nab your own palette at urbandecay.co.uk.
