(With foundation on and a different lip color - makes so much difference! Bad eyebrows though haha)
I've been getting a lot of searches for NYX Nude on Nude palette looks so I thought I would start doing a look-a-day series using the palette which would be a good challenge for me since my initial thoughts on the palette were hardly raving. However since doing that review I have used the palette a fair bit and found that although there are still a lot of colors that I have issues with, there are some combinations that have been winners for me. How can I not share them with you too?
For today's look I chose these three colors:
For all over my lid, I chose this taupe color from the top row. Dab it all over your lid, avoiding the crease area.
Next, to be different from what I usually do, I chose this color (a color away from the taupe) for my crease. It's a brown with golden sparkles in it and although it doesn't show in my photos (which are below in case you want to skip this) the sparkles will show up and add a bit of dazzle in this every day sort of look without being very obvious. Great way to get away with glitter especially if you have people muttering "you're too old for glitter!" I scoff at those people, no one is too old for glitter :/
Finally, I took this dark brown on the bottom row to just give a bit of definition to my eyes. I put a very, very, very small amount into my eye socket and blended it out.
Oh, I guess this is actually the final step. To make this a complete look only using the Nude on Nude palette I decided to sacrifice my dignity and use these atrocious colors. Not that they're atrocious overall but just for my skintone? They're a joke. Anyway, since for neutral looks I prefer a nude or lighter color I picked this peachy-beige sort of color.
And voila, this is the finished look! I can just feel the wrongness on my lips, just didn't feel right!
And later on, with foundation on and a mismatching lip color - I was testing out a foundation tutorial so I didn't really bother to find a proper lip color, sorry! Also these photos are taken with my Lumix as are the shots of the eyeshadows/lipcolor - for some reason my Lumix is way better than my new baby Olympus at macro shots. Still trying to learn how to use the latter. Face shots above are all with the Olympus if you couldn't notice the difference.
