With new seasons come new styles – and this fall, a nice combination of darks and nudes are definitely “in.” So it’s no surprise that Bobbi Brown released a gorgeous palette, Shimmering Nudes, of soft nudes with a deep “Espresso” shade as a liner.
There are actually two different types of eyeshadows: Shimmer Wash and Metallic.
The “ Shimmer Wash ” shades (which includes, in order from left to right on the palette, Nude Mist, possibly Naked although it’s difficult to say since it’s only listed as “Eye Shadow,” and Mica) give off a softer appearance to create that natural, nude look.
The “Metallic” tints (the remaining: Nude Beach , Nude Glow, and Nude Spice) are still soft, but used to brighten the eyes. Each of these shades, ranging from the light, shimmery Nude Glow to the deep brown Espresso, work together to create the perfect nude look – it’s all simply a matter of what your skin tone is and what specific “nude” look you’re going for.
Within this palette you will find not only the gorgeous seven eye shadow shades, but also a mirror and a dual-ended Eye Shadow and Liner Brush. Of course, you can always use your own brush, since some people use a wider type to brush over the eyelid, a rounded brush for the crease, etc. – but that’s all up to you.
Personally, I chose a main eye shadow shade to brush all over the eyelid, a lighter color as the highlight, and the darker crease shade. After blending the shade into the crease, I like to use Bobbi Brown’s Eye Liner Brush to line my eyes, perfecting this already gorgeous look. And if you like, you could even go with a deep lipstick, but that all depends on your skin tone, personal preference, etc.
Because you can never have too much of a good thing,
Bobbi has added four new shades to her Creamy Lip
Color Collection. Infused with hints of pink and gold,
each of the nude-toned lip shades is designed to work
beautifully with the Shimmering Nudes Palette.
From this collection I tried the Creamy Lip Color in SUNSET NUDE. This gorgeous shimmering gold shade will flatter any complexion. I was quite impressed with the creamy texture of this lip color and how it felt on my lips. Really smooth like butter and feels almost like a gloss. This shade is the perfect complement to a soft nude eye look. It will work on all skin tones and complexions.
So ladies, if you’re infatuated with the latest fall trends, I highly recommend checking out Bobbi Brown's Shimmering Nudes Collection– I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
