Rose and taupe EOTD with Urban Decay N@ked 3

Rose and taupe EOTD with Urban Decay N@ked 3 eyeshadow palette
I am having a spate of breakouts along the jawline as a result of my skin care routine suffering from last weekend's events. This time, I have painful, deep-seated bumps rather than pus-filled ones on the surface. Those, combined with the reappearance of dark circles - the result of all the medication - are making me feel and look dull, so I have picked out a not-so-bright rather dull eye look I did some days ago to show you.
This was actually an experiment with the Urban Decay N@ked 3 eyeshadow palette, swatched and reviewed here. Compared to my preferred bright eyeshadows, I have always felt that taupe would look dull on Indian skin. The photographs are all indoors in artificial light and the results are somewhat uninspiring, just as I am feeling.

For this look, Burnout, a peachy-rose, went on the centre of the eyelids. I applied just a spot of the rosier Buzz on the side of Burnout to blend it out. The deep taupe Darkside went on the outer crease to add a smoky look, though a light-handed one. The matte ivory Strange went into the inner corners and on the brow bone.

I know I sound listless and in a hurry; I'll do better when my back is better and I can type and do bright eye looks properly.
