In LOVE: Urban Decay's Naked Flushed Palette
Urban Decay's new Naked Flushed Palette in Streak has quickly become my go-to product for perking up my face in the mornings.
The chunky palette has three super-soft and highly-pigmented powders, a bronzer, highlighter and blusher, which can be used alone or combined to achieve a variety of finishes.
My favourite way to use the palette is to first add some definition with the bronzer with a large blending brush. It's a nice, pale and natural looking shade, with not a hint of orange in sight. I use it to contour under my cheekbones and then apply a light sweep across my nose, chin and forehead to give a sun-kissed glow.
I then apply the gorgeous, peachy-pink blusher to the apples of my cheeks, before using a smaller blending brush to highlight the tops of my cheekbones.
I can't get over how easy the palette is to use and how natural the finish is - all the shades blend together effortlessly and give a polished but natural look.
You can also get the Naked Flushed Palette in Native, which has a very pretty light-pink blusher, and Strip, which is the darkest of the trio with mauve leanings.
