Because sometimes you just want a hint of ultraviolet, iridescence…
I’m going NUDE with essence cosmetics, the Canadian Beauty Bloggers‘ featured brand of the month. For fall, essence is releasing 4 new eyeshadow palettes, along with some lipsticks, blushes, shadow crayons. So this is the first of 4 looks based around these new palettes: ALL ABOUT NUDE!
According to the description on the back, essence ALL ABOUT NUDE eyeshadow palette is long-lasting, silky and smooth texture with different effects ranging from matte to shimmer to metallic.
I wouldn’t really say there are any true mattes here though, maybe slight semi-matte shimmers. It is a fairly warm “nude” palette of pinks, a taupe and a warm almost purple-brown.
For the crease and outer V and outer corner of my lid, I blended the purple-brown shade (bottom row, right).
The taupe grey shimmer (bottom row, centre) was used as a slight “eyeliner” on the top and bottom lashline.
Also on my face:
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation (NW 15)
MAC Veluxe Brow Liner in Strawberry Blonde
UD Primer Potion
Clarins Instant Light Eye Base (to neutralize lids)
essence cosmetics can be found in Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada! Look for the new Fall collection coming your way very soon.
