Nude eyeshadow palettes are something that I get a lot of use out of - whether it be on myself or in my professional kit. I think most people are the same, because nudes are just so versatile. So here are my top 3 nude palettes...

I created this quick and easy spotlight eye look using pink and a touch of sparkle. In this post is a video tutorial and a list of products. I hope you like it!

So I created and filmed this look in bit of a hurry while getting ready one morning. Once I got into work I covered the lash band with liner and cleaned up any smudginess. So please excuse this look for being less than perfect, but I did enjoy how the look itself turned out. I'll definitely be using this look again when I want something fun but easy, and look forward to trying different colours & pigments for it!

It's super simple - the main things you need are: your dark smokey shade, your pop of colour for the centre, a bit of glitter/sparkle to place over that, and liner! I also chose to use a transition colour in the beginning to aid the blending of my darker colour, and lashes at the end to add a little more interest.

The exact products I used were all from Inglot:
Eyeshadow 314 (peach) - transition colour on a round fluffy blending brush
Eyeshadow 329 (dark brown) - smokey colour on a pinched ferrule blending brush, and an angled brush
Eyeshadow 382 (hot pink) - pop of colour on a large flat brush
AMC Pigment 86 - sparkle on a precise flat brush
Gel Liner 77 - black liner on a synthetic angled brush
Lashes 14S

Here is the tutorial, I hope you enjoy!

I absolutely love my Naked palette, so when I saw this dupe at a local pharmacy for less than a quarter of the price, I snatched it right up to compare it with the original!
In this post I have side by side swatches of each colour, along with an eye look I created using the equivalent colours of both palettes. Take a look and see what you think!

Here's a few looks I created, or 'Face Of The Day's! Hope you like them :-)
 I created this eye look using Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette,
and a glitter from LA Splash called Silverwave.
I normally do a black on the waterline but I chose a nude pencil instead to open up the eye a little and create more contrast with the shadow on the lower lashline.

This look was inspired by festival season, hence the spangles!
On the eyes I used the Lorac Pro palette.
I did a sharp liner with some warm browns and golds,
and I offset that with a super bright highlight under the brow and on the inner corner.
Lashes are Inglot 30N

For this look I wanted to do a twist on the black smokey eye (matte black on the lid, faded into browns in the crease). So instead I used a dark navy across the lid (Mac Contrast), and buffed a burnt orange (Inglot 335) through the crease. I added a little inner corner highlight (UD Virgin) as I love to do, as well as some black liner and lashes (Inglot 14S). And I really like the outcome!
