Naked 1 Tutorial: Summer Gold

We are officially in mid-summer. In Maryland, that means Target is starting to fill its shelves with back-to-school deals, the humidity is slam dunking us all, and the Bay Bridge is plagued by a never ending saga of beach traffic. However, just because summer is here doesn’t mean that I have abandoned my favorite eye shadows. The Naked 1 is my favorite palette during the summer heat because it is super sweat resistant when paired with a primer.

This gold shadow concoction is just one of the many eyeshadow pairings that I have been using so far this summer season.


1. Prep your eyes by applying eye shadow primer and under-eye concealer.

2. Apply a dark golden eye shadow (Smog) to the outer edge of your lower lash line and your entire  upper lash line, winging out the shadow slightly.


3. Apply a golden eyeshadow (Half Baked) to your entire lid.

4. Apply a matte brown eyeshadow (Buck) to your crease. Make sure to blend out the crease after you apply the shadow or it’s not going to look as seamless.


5. Use a dark brown eyeliner to tightline your upper and lower lash line.

6. Apply mascara to your lashes. I am using brown mascara instead of black here.

    Makes your eyes pop! Plus brings out the gold in your iris.

    Isn’t that what summer is all about? A bit of bright fun color? Gold counts :-) I like how easy you make this. I’ve been heading out the door with just liner & mascara lately… Come to think of it, I should find colored eye liners for a similar subtle pop.
