Day 5: Dream Face Palette: Pick 4 shades from any of your palettes that could be turned into your dream face palette (blush, bronzer, highlight, etc

  • 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 that I chose for this dream face palette from left to right are :

Contour : Matte Hung (a grey based deep taupe – matte) from the Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette was $42 but is no longer available on their site …. it can be found on other sites such as Bridgette’s Boutique. I have often used this shade whilst traveling, to save space in my makeup bag, as a contour. What I like most about it is that it’s not overly pigmented so you don’t really have to worry that you’ll go over board and end up with a grey muddy mess. It blends out perfectly and never goes patchy.

Bronzer: Kufuru (syrup brown – matte) from the Warrior II Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This shadow is my perfect bronzer shade! It’s got just enough red undertone in it to be a pretty bronzer. It’s super pigmented so you have to go in with a light hand and just a touch of product at a time. This shadow, as a bronzer, lasts all day… even thought the Florida humidity.

Blush: Spiced (a red based mid-toned coral – matte) from the ELF Retro Paradise Palette $14 on their website. I love me a good coral blush … and even though I’ve used eyeshadows as contour and bronzer and highlighter and even lipstick toppers from time to time, I never thought to use one as a blush! This shade when I swatched it for a blush contender was just so beautiful! It’s got the right amount of red to it to make the cheeks look sun kissed and the right saturation of coral to give you pop of color to the cheeks. I plan to use this shade for my next Face of the Day look.

and finally Highlighter: Moremi (white gold – metallic) from the Warrior Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I’ve used this shadow as highlighter a few times now. It’s a super beaming highlight so I go in with a fluffy highlighter brush and a super light hand so as to not go over board. But the undertone of this gold shadow is perfect for that everyday sort of highlight.

Well dolls, there you have it … my 4 pan dream face palette. What shades would you pick for your dream face palette?

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

Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO, Nita
