Urban Decay make some of the best eye shadow palettes and this is no exception, especially if you like your nudes like I do. For a small palette, this is pretty versatile. It has a great combination of matte shades that are either wearable alone or can be easily incorporated in any eye look you’re going for.

A classic brown smokey look is made easy with this palette; FOXY or W.O.S can be used for the lid, VENUS can be used to highlight the inner corner and under the brow bone, NAKED 2 can be used in the crease, and FAINT deepens the outer V, which can be emphasized with CRAVE, and smokes out your liner.

This is the only eye shadow palette I take along when I’m travelling – I use one of the lighter shades as an everyday wash of color on the lids, and might use NAKED 2 to define the crease or just use it all over the lid on its own if I’m feeling it.
