Apply your foundation like normal, then use one of the shimmery colors in your palette to highlight. Go for a shadow that's a few shades lighter than your skin tone. For light skin, use Virgin from Naked, and medium-skinned girls can try Sin from Naked. Half Baked from Naked works best with darker skin tones. Using a mini powder brush, dust the shade down the bridge of your nose, the center of your forehead, your cupid's bow, the center of your chin, and above your cheekbones.
Pick a color that's slightly darker than your hair color and fill in your brows using the flat side of your Naked Palette brush. Using long strokes, lightly apply the shadow to your brows, moving in same the direction as your hair. Buck from the original Naked Palette is perfect for redheads. Brunettes and darker blondes can try Tease from Naked 2, or for lighter-hair girls, go for Naked from the original Naked Palette. Play around with layering colors and application pressure.

Very lightly add some color under your entire jawline, then blend it down onto your neck to create a shadow. For the best look, try a shadow that's a couple shades darker than your skin ...
Cover your lips in your fave clear balm (we recommend Baby Lips by Maybelline). Then rub any color from your palette over the balm, using a small blending brush.

To get the same look on medium skin, use Nooner from Naked 3, and for dark skin, use Toasted from Naked.
Use a pink shadow to dust the apples of your cheek and blend backward until it looks natural. In general, Naked 3 has tons of pink shades that are perfect for blush. Light and medium-skinned girls, try Limit from Naked 3. If you have fairer skin, you might only need a light dusting, whereas medium skin tones may need a few layers of Limit. For darker skin tones, use Nooner from Naked 3.
Grab a fluffy bronzer brush and apply a brownish color that's a couple shades darker than your skin tone. Matte shades work the best for face makeup, so try Naked from the original Naked Palette if you have fair skin. Buck from the original Naked Palette works best for medium and darker skin tones. If you have a medium skin tone, apply Buck very lightly, and for darker skin, try a heavier application. You can also mix the two for the perfect sun-kissed look. Starting at your tragus (the litt...
