Beauty | Bobbi Brown nude on nude
I found out the other day quite to my surprise that there were Bobbi Brown stores in Brussels and decided to pay one of them a visit. Bobbi Brown believes ” makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself, only prettier and more confident.”
I bought the Nude on Nude eye shadow palette. If you are looking for highly pigmented colours then I would advice you to pass on this one. This palette is made of three types of finishes:
– Sparkle: these shades have no pigmentation they are made to give some sparkle to your lids. The aim is to finish your smokey eye with them. You need to “push” the eye shadow into your lid and not brush it all over or you’ll end up with sparkles everywhere but on your lids.
– Metallic: These are metallic powders with pigmentation they will allow you to give some light to your eyes.
– Matte: These are the most pigmented shadows in the palette. They allow you build up the smokey eye.
This palette is not the kind that will make you look like a disco ball, nor will it give you a dramatic smokey eye. It will however allow you to wear a nice discrete smokey eye in the day time. If you want your eye makeup to be more elaborate you just need to combine Matte + Metallic + Sparkle and add some eyeliner.
I would definitely recommend this palette to anyone as the colours work well with all complexions.
Bobbi Brown cosmetics are amazing for another reason, if you ask their makeup artists they will show you how to use the products you want to buy. I bought my palette on Saturday so the store was crowded but the makeup artist told me to call them during the week to get a 20 minutes smokey eyes tutorial. Yesterday, I went to the store and had my makeup done. here is the finished look, I hope you like it.
By the way the only danger of having your makeup done is then wanting to buy all the products they put on you. I now want the eyeliner and the brush…
