I have been obsessed with this nude palette since I first bought it (only $5.49!). It’s so versatile for a range of everyday nude makeup looks. I tend to mix it up a little bit from day to day using the same palette or Essence’s other eyeshadow palettes (Vintage and Roses). You can use the same steps with a shift in the colours and amount applied. You can do a no-makeup makeup look using lighter colours and applying less product, or you can create a night time look shifting to the darker shades.


    1. Prep your face with primer.
    2. Apply foundation or CC cream.
    3. Use the lightest shade of the eyeshadow palette as a highlight by your brow bone.
    4. Apply a light brown shade all over your lid and crease.
    5. Using a blending brush apply a medium brown shade along the crease.
    6. Using a blending brush apply a dark brown shade more precisely in the crease and at the outside corners.
    7. Blend together.
    8. Apply pressed powder all over your face.
    9. Apply contour – how to apply contour.
    10. Apply blush and a highlight.
    11. Apply the dark brown shade along your lower lashline.
    12. Apply a nude eyeliner along your lower waterline.
    13. Apply black liquid eyeliner along your lids – tips for applying eyeliner.
    14. Brush your eyebrows.
    15. Fill brows in with a brow liner – NYX brow product review.
    16. Set brows with brow gel.
    17. Apply 2 coats of mascara – Essence mascara review.
    18. Apply lipstick.
