Safiyah's Guide to Naked Palettes
Despite the three palettes being neutral shades, each palette offers a range of neutrals to suit every skin tone.
They each have colours that would suit fair and deep tones alike, for example the golds Half Baked/Trick; or bronzes Smog/Snakebite; or plums Hustle/Busted).
However, I think some palettes look darker on fairer tones and the new Naked 3's matte shades will look too chalky on deeper tones (still yet to be 100% confirmed!)
Laid out together you can see the difference in palettes:
As a guide, I'd say the following palettes are suitable for these skintones based on the matte shades in each palette:
- Naked 1 (Bronze neutrals): Medium to Deep skintones (both yellow toned and pink/red tones) [MAC shades NC25s+ and NW18+]
- Naked 2 (Taupe neutrals): Fair to Medium skintones (both yellow tones and pink/red tones) [MAC shades NC15-40 or NW10+]
- Naked 3 (Rose neutrals): Fair to Medium skintones (mostly pink tones, some yellow tones) [MAC shades NW10+ and NC15-35]
I hope this helps in deciding which palette is best for you (if you're not a collector/UD junkie like me!)
All three Naked Palettes are now available to buy at the following retailers (if they're not already sold out for Christmas!):
Debenhams, House of Fraser, and John Lewis.
