This probably seems like a simple decision but I have been comparing for like three days now and I can’t make up my mind! I will be DIYing my own makeup, so I’ll use whichever I get for that, but I also just want some nice quality makeup to use on a daily basis.
-I have fair, yellow-undertoned (I think) skin and dark brown eyes and hair.
-I already own the primer that comes with Naked, but I don’t have any eyeshadow brushes yet
-An eyeshadow brush comes with each set, the one in Naked2 is double ended but has questionable reviews.
-Naked2 comes with a lipgloss as well
Anyone have experience with one or the other? Which should I get?
This is what I look like:
And this is the make-up look I am going for with my wedding:
Thanks for your input!

I think Naked.
Have you tried going someplace like Ulta or Sephora? They might be able to test both of them on you to see which one works best. Especially if you plan on making a purchase. They can also give some pointers on how to achieve the look you’re going for. If you aren’t able to go in person I would try Naked, I’ve heard a lot of great reviews for it and I think it would go well with your skin tones.
ETA: If you purchase at Sephora, they take returns on opened/used products…and they don’t hassle you about it. So if for some reason one didn’t work out, you could always return it and get the other one.

I can’t see the look for your wedding photo but I personally own both and I do make up on the side. I love both, it’s really just preference as to which you rather use.

Tought decision! I have both palettes and I love them both almost equally. Naked has a better highlight color IMO, but Naked 2 has “cooler” toned colors that look nice on my skin. I say Naked if you have warm undertones, Naked 2 if you have cool undertones.
and like a PP said, if you are able to actually find both in stock at a Sephora…they will gladly take back any used products, so you could try both. But really, I think you are going to be very happy either way. Both are full of amazing colors.

Do you like shimmer or matte? The Naked has way more matte than Naked 2 (it only has 2)

I do plan on ordering from Sephora, so if I end up not liking it I can return it. But I’d like to get it right on the first try of course. : )
I have heard Naked2 is better if you have cool undertones, but I’m having trouble deciding which I am.

If you know anyone who is a V.I.B. at Sephora, you can get 15% off of your purchases today. I think today is the last day to get that discount. I have Naked and just ordered Naked 2. I love the one I already own and am super excited for Naked 2 to come in the mail!

Personally, I have the Naked Palette and love it to death. I can do natural daytime looks and dress it up at night. Like you, I have brown hair and brown eyes.
Honestly, I don’t think you could go wrong with either purchase.
Sorry, I’ve been zero help, lol 🙂

Thanks everyone! I decided to just go for it and I ordered the Naked2 – I like the idea of more glimmering colors, the lipgloss, and a double ended brush. I’m also leaning towards my skin being a “cool” tone though I’m not sure.
I’ll post a review once I get it!

I purchased naked 2 and the colors seem to be more on the cool side. So now I am looking to purchase nake 1 for the warmer hues.

I’m so glad I’m on trend! i bought the Naked palette a few weeks ago after my friend raved about it. I have your coloring and love the first one- there’s ton’s of shimmer available! I did see that you ordered the Naked2, which was a tough call for me, as well…I’ll probably end up getting it, too….I’m sure you can’t go wrong!

I prefer the original Naked palette, the colors are more every day (for me at least).

I have the feeling I will end up owning both … : /

I have dark eyes and warmer tones are what I always gravitate towards because I like the way it looks. I say Naked 1
