Neutral eyeshadow palettes hold a secure place in my heart, along with french fries and Oscar Isaac. They’re easy to use and perfect for any occasion, whether the look is more natural or impactful. Also, you can never have enough of them. I’m proof of this (my makeup drawer is full of them), so I’d like to announce that I’m proud to add the MAKE Beauty Nude Palette to the family.
This palette works for pretty much anyone and it withholds all the things you need to complete any look, especially the no makeup-makeup look, which we all venture to when the days get hotter. The new motto is the dewy-er the better and this is the product for that!
The Nude Palette comes with an illuminator called the Dew Pot and honestly, with the name itself, I’m pretty much sold. It gives the slightest bit of color but with all the light reflecting goodness you desire in a highlighter. Enriched with Vitamin C & E, you’ll be moisturized, conditioned and most importantly, radiant.
Along with the highlight, you need a bit of color, a flush that says I’ve just been sun kissed. In comes Blot Pot, a lip and cheek stain that is the perfect blend between rosy and tawny hues. Not to worry, it also comes in a cream formula, so you’ll keep the dew going. You can also use it on your lips for a hint of color and definition. I’m all for multi-functionality, so this is a huge plus for me!
I’m not one to really do much to my eyes during the summer, but these shadows are too irresistible. With a variety of matte and satin shades, you can pretty much create any look, especially since you can use them either dry or wet. The shadows are pigmented and extremely blend-able. One swipe and you’re done. Minimal effort is my thing when it comes to beauty nowadays so I’m singing praises! You get an array of neutral colors like copper, ivory, chocolate brown and bronze, which covers everything you need to finish the face.
The good thing about this palette is that, because it has everything in one product, you have a lot of room to play, meaning you can use the blush as eyeshadow, the more taupe eyeshadow shade as a contour, or even the highlighter as a subtle gloss. That’s the fun part of this palette: it has no rules. That’s why she’s a keeper for this summer.
