Neutral Eye Look Using Aromaleigh Ciao Italia! and Comparison With Urban Decay Naked Palette

Here is a look featuring some of my favorite eyeshadows from Aromaleigh's Ciao Italia! Collection. This look reminds me of the neutral look I used using the Urban Decay Naked Palette, so these colors might be a good alternative if you don't have the UD palette yet.


With flash


natural light


For my base, I used MAC Coral Crepe paint pot.

All products Aromaleigh unless otherwise stated.


Apply Urban Decay primer potion in Sin all over lid and lower lashline. Using a fluffy shader brush, apply MAC Coral Crepe paint pot on lid. Blend with finger. Using a stiff shader brush like the MAC 239, apply Bacio dry on lid in patting motions.


Using the same brush, apply Ciocolatto dry on outer V and crease.


Blend harsh edges using the MAC 224 brush.



Using Chanel No. 3 brush (similar to MAC 226 brush), apply Tiramisu dry on crease.


Apply some more Tiramisu to deepen the crease.


Blend harsh edges using the 224.


Apply L'oreal Lineur Intense liquid eyeliner in Black on upper lashline. Tightline using Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on pencil in Zero. Apply MAC eye shadow in Manila Paper on browbone using the Stila No. 5 brush.


Apply MAC Chromagraphic pencil in NW25/NC20 on waterline. Apply Bacio on inner lower lashline and Tiramisu on outer lower lashline using the tip of Essence of Beauty concealer brush. Apply Red Cherry lashes #15.








This looks just like my neutral look using the Urban Decay Naked Palette. See for yourself:

Bacio is my favorite from the Ciao Italia collection. It's lovely on you, too.

Love the base you used! I am missing some eyeshadow action for the past months :) You are inspiring me to use them again!

Phyrra- Bacio is also one of my top faves =) I love this collection so much!

Askmewhats- I wear shadow everyday but it sucks that I can only take pics and step-by-steps on weekends. =(
