Why, hello! This is yet another kind of 'series' I'm going to start on this blog! I've been wanting to do so for a while, but since my dear Anouchka from lifeofbun wanted to see an eyeshadow up close, I saw this as the perfect opportunity to start with my 'Eyes Of The Day'! Nope, no face (because that would make one loooong post), but Eyes! Short and sweet.
Today's star is the Nude 'Tude palette by theBalm, which was also in my last favourites. It was because of that post - and Anouchka's desire to see that good ol' plummy shade up close, that I finally bit the bullet and decided to do this post.
I only used three colours for an ultra easy smokey eye. Though smokey eyes aren't as dramatic on hooded lids, I still like to rock one from time to time. I used Sexy on the upper and lower lid as my base colour, blended both out with Sultry, my most loved and used shade from this palette, and Sassy as an inner corner highlight. And beware, this is an extremely potent white, shimmery shade, so when used in this manner, I have to use the lightest hand possible.
All of these shadows are extremely pigmented, longlasting and blendable. Just be sure to tap off the excess before you apply.
