Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? great I hope.

I know it’s been a week since I last posted for this challenge … but better late than never.

This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 3: Dream Neutral Palette: Pick 9 neutral shades from any of your palettes to create your own mini neautrals 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.

The shades for my dream mini neutrals palette would be:

Creme (a basic vanilla – matte) from the ELF The New Classics Palette $14 on their site. This shade is perfect for a brow bone highlight and as a matte inner corner highlight.

Riff (nude brown – matte) from the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette $49 at Ulta and Sephora. This is just the perfect nude transition shade. It’s just the right under tone of warmth without being too warm.

Maple (warm caramel brown – matte) from the Too Face Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette $45 at Ulta and Sephora. This shade is similar to Riff but has a bit more yellow in the tone. It’s such a pretty shadow to just pop in the crease for some added dimension on those no makeup makeup days.

Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte) a ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Shadow $4.50 on their website. This is my go to shade when I just want an all over wash of color. I also love to use it to really smoke out the lower lash line when I do drop shadows.

Kano (true caramel – matte ) from the Warrior Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I use Kano a ton… not just for eye shadow… I also use it to warm up the highest points of my face when I want a subtle bronzed look.

Kufuru (syrup brown – matte) from the Warrior II Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I freaking love this shadow! It’s my favorite way to deepen up the outer v and to add depth to the lower lash line.

Over It (light warm coral – metallic) a ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Shadow (discontinued). This is the perfect coral shade to pair with a neutral palette. It’s just the right pigmentation and right shade of coral to pair well with a smokey neutral look and still work well with a barely their neutral look.

The 4th shade of the 1st row (champagne – metallic) of the Nubian Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This adds such a stunning pop of light to any neutral look. It’s also a great inner corner highlight shade.

and finally Kenya (chocolate brown – matte) from the Nubian 2 Palette from Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This is my go to shadow to create a smokey neutral look with and also to add depth to the very outer parts of the eye.

There you have it dolls. My perfect dream mini neutral palette. What shades would be in your 9 pan dream neutral palette?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and good health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO, Nita
