Summer Palettes

Today I want to talk about my two favorite new products this summer- the Bare Minerals California Bronze Palette and the Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette.

The Naked3 may not be a new release, but after lusting after it for ages, my friend Alicia just gave me one a month ago (#greatestfriendaward) and I truly believe my makeup routine will never be the same.  I have cool undertones and I tend to go subtle with my eye makeup, so these rose-hued neutrals were absolutely perfect for me, though they are probably be a bit harder to make them work if your skin has pink undertones.  I really love that most of the shades are light and rosy for every day use, but there are still four darker shades that I can use for nighttime looks.  I also love the variation of matte and metallic finishes so that you can make layered and textured looks or simply spice it up from day to day.

California Bronze is taking my bronzer game to a whole new level.  As I’ve mentioned I’m an avid Bare Minerals fan, and I’ve used their bronzer in the past; but nothing to the extent of which I’ve used this palette.  The two bronzers and highlighter combine to make a really great, dimensional look.  It’s definitely worked great with what little of a tan I’ve developed this summer, so I’m really interested to see how it looks when the tan starts to fade and my skin stars looking ghostly again. *tear*

I guess the moral of this story is that palettes, and their plethora of different combinations, have been working out really well for me this summer.  I consider myself to be a makeup newbie, so having so many options in just one product is giving me a lot of opportunity to learn and experiment!

What are your must-have palettes?

xo, Caitlin
