Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.
So after posting my Dream Matte Palette from yesterday I had been speaking with newlipstickclub1 on Instagram and turns out there were some rules for the challenge that I didn’t know about. So I thought it would be fun to redo this challenge the right way …. so let’s get started
Day 1: Dream matte Palette: Pick 9 of Your Favorite Matte Shades & Swatch Them to Make Your Own Palette!
- As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.
If I had to (gulp) only chose 9 mattes …. I would have to opt for a basic neutral palette because I feel that I could get the most millage out of a basic neutral matte palette more than if I had fun pops of color mixed in.
The shades in my 9 Pan Matte Palette would be:
Matt Malloy (pure white – from The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette), I chose the white shade because it can help me lighten some of the mid tone browns and also act as an inner corner and brow line highlight. I’ve even used this shade to brighten up my under eyes and also as the center spot of my mobile lid for an all matte halo eye.
Here Me Out (white peach – ColourPop single eye shadow), I chose this as my brow bone highlight because it’s just the perfect undertone for my brow line. It’s also stunning on the mobile lid with just a hint of color through the crease.
the 4th shade of the Juvia’s Place The Nudes palette (light rose), I chose this shade because I can’t not have a coral type shade in any palette I own. This is a rose that leans coral and is so pretty as an all over wash of color or even just through the crease with a bit of shimmer on the mobile lids.
Bel Air (cool taupe – ColourPop single shadow), It’s a cool taupe must I say anything else? This is the perfect contour shade for the crease when you don’t want a “makeup” makeup look. It’s also great to help deepen the light rose shade, and it’s a great under eye shade as well.
the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Nudes palette (deep yellow camel), I love me a good camel nude. This one is so simply beautiful all over for a wash of color it also loves amazing paired with the white peach shade.
Maple (yellow based tannish brown – from the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow palette ), My all time favorite shade Too Faced has ever come out with! I live for this shade. When I hit pan I will totally repurchase this palette just so I can have this shade still in my life.
Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – ColourPop single shadow), This shade again is just so beautiful as an all over wash of color with just a pop of shimmer in the middle of the mobile lid. It’s also a great blender shade for deeper colors.
Soothe Matte (camel – from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 palette), This has to be the prettiest camel shade I have ever owned. Tati knows what she is doing with her color selection because this palette in general is fire! But soothe is my all time favorite shade of the whole palette.
and the 1st shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (deep chocolate brown). I was torn been between needing a deep brown and a black … but this shade is the perfect amalgamation of the two. It’s deep enough that I just don’t miss having a black matte in a 9 pan palette with this one in it.
Well there you have it dolls. My Dream 9 Pan Matte Palette…. What are your go to shades you couldn’t live without if you only were able to choose 9 shades for an all matte palette?
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good health and spirits.
Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
