#FOTD | Everyday Spring Look

I was meaning to put this up yesterday but completely forgot! This is pretty much how I've been doing my makeup everyday lately (with the exception of my eyeliner & non-makeup days) so I thought I'd do a little post on it!

Naked 3

As you can see it is a very light, natural look. I will have a full list of products down below, but I wanted to concentrate on my eyes because I learnt a very handy tip the other day and I thought I'd share it with ya'll!! So, I'd been using my Nude 'Tude palette (which I did a review on over here) pretty much everyday and neglecting the very beautiful Naked 3, which is pretty much a sin given the colours are so perfect for spring. Now as I've mentioned before, I am super pale. Good news, the wonderful minions at Urban Decay decided it was about time they put out some eyeshadow shades that were made for our paleness. Cue the Naked 3 palette. However, it is important to note (especially if you have blue eyes like me) that too many nudey/pinkish tones around your eyes can make you look too washed out and ill. Now, unless you are some sadistic odd ball, I'm going to go ahead and assume that I've-been-puking-my-guts-out-for-the-past-few-days is not a look you're going to be striving for.

Naked 3

So what do you do? Well, its uber simple. You simply take any matte brown (a darker shade is more preferable, I used a light brown and it didn't really do much) and line your eyes with it! It doesn't have to even look like eyeliner, you can apply it really close to the tight line / your eyelash line. I know this may seem super simple, and maybe everyone knows this tip. But I didn't and I think it really changed this look, and made it way prettier. I apologize for using so many products, no wonder it takes me the entire stone age to get ready. But of course you can substitute any products for similar ones you have!  Some of the products listed below are featured in my April Favourties so go check that out over here!

If you recreate this look let me know in the comments! Do you have any other eyeshadow tips, or tips for people with super pale skin? I feel like having pale skin is kind of like a uniting thing!
