In the buff! As minimal makeup took center stage during Spring 2012 fashion week, beauty brands were quick to fill the demand for new neutral palettes. Beauties, we know how much you loved Urban Decay's Naked II, so we've rounded up a few of our favorite bare essentials—so your face can look just as effortless this season!
Ready to slip into something more comfortable? The warm shimmering metallics, browns, and burgundy shades in this palette easily layer together to create a variety of daytime looks. For a quick change to evening smudge the matte espresso and ebony shades into your lash line.
No makeup-makeup can take more than a couple of shadows to pull off. That's why this jumbo kit features 15 eye shadows, four blushes, one bronzer, and two face illuminators—all in a sleek travel-sized case! The $25 set even comes with a large mirror so you can enhance your natural beauty on-the-go.
Stripped-down lids don't have to lose their sultry appeal. This $28 universally flattering palette features six eye shadows and step-by-step instructions so you can experiment with an endless amount of sexy bare naked eye effects.
At just $40, this 10 eye shadow combo is a total steal. The palette includes the luxe brand's highly pigmented matte and sparkling neutral eye shadows which will last all the way into your night out.
