Guess what I finally got my hands on? The Nudes palette by Maybelline! I’m so excited that I finally have this palette, I’ve been searching everywhere for it. To tell you a bit about it it is the first large drugstore palette. This palette has 12 shades of neutral colors. I would say you have 6 satin finish shades and 6 metallic shades. The price point is 10 dollars which is a great price for 12 shades.
I wanted to do a first impression review/ tutorial on this palette. The packaging is super cute, slim, perfect for traveling. You get 12 pigmented shades in neutral colors. Actually the colors are similar to the Naked palette by Urban Decay. These shades are somewhat hard to blend. It just takes an extra minute to blend. Overall I would recommend this palette if you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to the Naked palette.
Now to the tutorial part! Using the Milani easy brow automatic pencil in the shade taupe, I start with small strokes at the tail of my eyebrow. I work my way forward as I fill in my brows. Lining my upper waterline with Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl pencil in black, this helps make my lashes look fuller.
I prep my eyes using ELF eyelid primer. I just dab a dot on each eyelid and blend it in with my ring finger. Taking my ELF blending brush I’m picking up the dark brown shade and blending it into my crease and outer “v” of my eye.
The next color I use is the gold metallic color which I place in the middle of my lid. To open my eyes up more I take the satin finish white and place it under my eyebrows as a highlight and in the inner corner of my eyes.
After blending all of the shades seamlessly I take my ELF smudge brush and take the copper metallic shade and smudge it into my lower lash line. I curl my lashes using a drugstore lash curler. Last, but not least, I coat my lashes in Voluminous Miss Manga mascara in black.
