Urban Decay's NAKED series of eyeshadow are some of the most versatile palettes I've ever come across. The first colors I reach for with a blue or green-eyed client. My one criticism of these palettes, the abundance of shimmer, has been addressed with the recent release of the third palette,
NAKED Basics (all matte, neutral shades).
These are HOT. . . not only shade-wise, but hard-to-keep-in-the-stores HOT. That's why I'm posting early so you can get your hands on them soon. If you have a makeup-lover on your list, or if you simply want to gift yourself an amazing eyeshadow wardrobe, this is a treat. NAKED & NAKED 2 retail for approximately $50 each and NAKED Basics is $27.
Bonus: NAKED comes with an eyeshadow primer and both 1&2 include phenomenal brushes.
Available at Sephora, Ulta, or online at www.UrbanDecay.com
(NAKED Basics especially recommended for my 35+ clients. . . this was made for you; the matte finish minimizes showing up any texture on your eyelid!)
