Crisp fall weather ignites cozy knit sweaters, over the knee boots and my personal favorite, smokey eyes. It was love at first sight when I spotted Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes Palette at a beauty event at Neiman Marcus. Featuring eight mix-and-match shades in soft matte, sparkle and metallic finishes, this is the best palette for smokey eyes. This is a limited edition palette but it’s by far the most timeless beauty product I’ve purchased in a while. I used to heavily rely on tutorials but there comes a time when you get tired of following directions and just want to dive in. And that’s exactly what I did. If you’re overwhelmed by this palette, here’s a good rule of thumb: start with a light all-over shadow and then layer with a medium lid shadow, dark liner and a sparkle eye shadow on top. Finish your look by adding some all-over color with this Shimmer Brick in Sandstone (this also doubles as an eye palette if you desire but I prefer to swipe this on my cheeks).
