Timeless Dramatic Eyes Featuring Paula's Choice The Nude Mattes Palette

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Today I have a classic dark matte look to share featuring my newest palette, the Paula's Choice The Nude Mattes Palette (see my initial review here). The key to this look is to use some sticky tape or Post-It notes to get those clean angles near the wing of the eye.

Take a look!

Review + Photos: Paula's Choice The Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette (LE)

Sunday, March 16, 2014

You know my blog name so you know of course I had to pick up the limited edition Paula's Choice The Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette ($40). Once I found out that makeup god Wayne Goss had consulted on it, I was SOLD. This weekend, I played with it for the first time and I am in love. From the shadows I've tested so far (see look below), these shadows are super blendable and pigmented.

Take a look at close-up photos and my Cara Delevingne-inspired hazy brown eye look using the palette below!

UPDATE: I have a darker classic eye look up on the blog using this same palette as well here.
