I feel like I need to preface this post with the fact that I am not an expert at makeup application. I do not wear eye shadow on a daily basis, but I follow a ton of beauty bloggers and am always in awe of how talented they are! So before I tested out my brand new Maybelline 24K Nude Palette, I scoured YouTube for a few good tutorials. I even pulled out my trusty old makeup bible…Kevin Aucoin’s “Making Faces“, which I’ve had for almost 20 years! And then wouldn’t you know it…I ended up sticking with my “go-to” look…a smokey eye and nude lip. For this look, I went with the rose gold and white shimmer and the flat black and shimmery/glittery black shadows. I found it easier to apply the shadow with my own brushes than with the little sponge applicator so I could blend better. I prefer a natural makeup look and the Maybelline 24k Nudes palette has everything I need to create the perfect eye look! I also used the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner and the Colossal Big Shot Mascara. BTW, I am a HUGE mascara snob and have used the same mascara for years. Colossal Big Shot Mascara is amazing straight out of the gate. My tried & true mascara needs to dry out a bit before I like the consistency. But this mascara was AWESOME on the first try. I feel like a lot of mascara’s are either great at lengthening or they’re great at thickening…but this mascara does both very well. The eyeliner was also very easy to use and the fine tip made it easy to create the perfect line without smudging.

A little more about the Maybelline products I used:

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara: A volumizing mascara that lifts and separates in just one coat for full and undeniably bold lashes. The fully-loaded brush contains five wells filled to the brim with wavy bristles to maximize the delivery of the formula to lashes, coating even the tiniest of lashes. The unique design of the bristles gathers more formula, boosting length and volume beyond belief. With this collagen-fueled, long-lasting formula, your lashes won’t smudge, clump or dry out!

Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner: Featuring a breakthrough hyper sharp 0.4mm tip, Master Precise gives full control to create smooth, even, perfect lines with no skipping. The ultra-thin tip supplies a continuous flow with no excess, while the exclusive ink technology keeps pigment saturated for the boldest of eye looks. It’s so thin, you can have fun and create artistry on your own eyes.

Maybelline 24k Nudes Palette: All about gold, this new palette features sultry, shimmering shadows in 12 magnificent shades of gold, bronze and copper to create your signature eye look. The silky texture blends easily for soft, high pigmented color that lasts. The long-lasting formula ranges from light to dark shades with both matte and shimmery finishes for optimal customization.
