It’s time to thing about Fall makeup. Yes, I know… I’m still thinking about what I’m wearing to the beach right now, too, but retailers are already gearing up for Fall. One new collection you’ll definitely want to consider, is the 2009 Nudes Makeup Collection, by makeup diva and trend-setter, Bobbi Brown.
When I heard about the new collection, my first thought was; “Oh, ok, more boring beige to make me look washed out.” But I was very happily surprised. This nude collection isn’t too light to show up, or too bland for anyone to care, by any means. “Nude makeup doesn’t mean monochromatic, barely-there makeup. It means makeup that’s right for your skin,” says Bobbi.
Bobbi proves that nude is nifty! I love this limited edition, Nude Eye Palette ($60.00). The now-iconic, shiny black mirrored compact features eye shadow duos in light, medium and deeper shades and textures of nude. You can take it as-is, or customize the 3 Pan Palette with your choice of any Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow or Blush shades. The colors are in the nude family, but they do add life and warmth to your eyes, with universally flattering shades of go-with-everything, color. Navajo Eye Shadow (creamy light pink) & Pebble Metallic Eye Shadow (shimmery champagne); Chino Eye Shadow (creamy medium brown) & Beige Linen Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow (golden shimmer) and on the deeper end there’s Maple Sugar Metallic Eye Shadow (medium gold shimmer) paired with Caviar Eye Shadow (deep matte black). This eye palette is the perfect, no-brainer way to enjoy the nude makeup trend that I saw on so many runways, and that is a must-have for the coming season.
The photo above shows you the rest of the collection, in swatches. Those who love Shimmer Bricks (and who doesn’t?) will like the new, Nude Shimmer Brick ($40.00) , with five shimmery bars of pink, gold, bronze, beige, and caramel. You can blend them together for an overall glow, or use them separately as eye shadows, highlighters, and on your cheeks.
Compliment the Nude Eye Palette and the Nude Shimmer brick with two other important accessories that will remain in the Bobbi Brown permanent collection: a Caviar Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($21.00) now available in a rich, deep brown shade, and four new shades of Bobbi’s popular Creamy Lip Color ($22.00). I tried Rose Garden. a gorgeous, medium rose that makes nude lips look moist and slightly shimmery, without adding more than a hint of nude pink. Check out the photo of the collection to see all four natural, flattering, soft shades also including: Soft Blush (pink nude); Rose Bud (warm brown); and Twilight (medium brown)
