Urban Decay came out with their new Naked Smoky palette this month and as a total beauty junkie and fan of the Naked palettes collection I couldn't wait to put my hands on it. I already have Naked 2 and Naked 3, which are my go-to palettes everyday, but since I never got Naked 1, which seemed to have more of a darker shades in it, Naked Smoky was definitely the one I couldn't wait to have in my collection. 
Naked Smoky contains twelve eyeshadows, nine of which are completely new shades and three are an exclusive ones. You have a beautiful shimmery, champagne shade called High which I use on my eyes inner corners, as a highlight and as well as all over the lid color for daytime makeup.  My absolute favorite is shade called Armor, which is a gorgeous grey shade with silver shimmer in it.  I really like the fact that this palette offers shimmery, satin as well as matte shades, both with warm and cool undertones which gives a great variety of colors to play around creating your perfect smoky eye look.

Sultry Smoky Eyes Tutorial using Urban Decay Naked Smoky
1. I started with applying an eyeshadow primer all over my lid up to my crease. Then using a blending brush I applied Whiskey (a matte, warm brown shade) to my crease.
2. Next I gently patted Smolder all over my lid and then using blending brush I slowly blended it with Whiskey until there was no harsh edges or color differences in between both. Then I reapplied Smolder to increase the color intensity. 
3. I applied Smolder to my lower lash line and blended it gently with High which I also applied to my inner corners. I didn't want the smoky eyes to look too shimmery, so for my brow bone highlight i opted for a matte Combust shade. 
And that is the finished look! 

Summary:
If you love wearing smoky eyes, Naked Smoky is a fantastic eyeshadow palette for it. You can create a very subtle to a very dark and intense smoky eyes look and still enjoy a great quality and rich pigmentation of each eyeshadow. I am sold! <3

    Gosh I feel like the worst blogger ever having never owned a Naked Eye Palette!

    I struggle so much with wearing eyeshadows though, I have one green eye and one blue, so i always feel as though eyeshadows make that look worse. Always been a cat flick eyeliner kinda girl!!
