BB Shimmering Nudes revisited

The last time (which was last year) that I used the Bobbi Brown Shimmering Nudes, it ended up in failure because of how it looked after a few hours of wear... but now I had to give it another chance, I didn't want it to sit around doing nothing. This time I used a cream base before applying the shadows in hopes that it wouldn't turn muddy and gross.

Using:
Shimmering Nudes 1. Nude Spice, 2. Nude Beach, 3. Espresso
Paul & Joe liner black
Jill Stuart cream shadow 10
Fiberwig
Lavshuca blush (forgot the #)

I first apply the cream shadow on my lid just under the crease.

Using Nude Spice #1, apply it on top and up to the crease.

Using Nude Beach #2, blend it into the crease.

Blend Espresso #3 on the liner, then using Nude Beach, blend on top to soften the liner.

And done! Are my tutorials easy or what? =D
The end result is a nice pearly eye. I've been doing this look for the past 3 days and it hasn't turned muddy or gross at all thanks to the cream shadow base. Now I can love the Shimmering Nudes palette again.
Since the eyes are so pearly, I stuck with a matte blush.. well the only matte-ish blush I have. The blush has very few shimmery glitters in it that it's barely noticable, oh.. but the blush itself is not noticable to begin with, it's very sheer.

I finally got a new brush for the LM mineral powder, the Eco Tools bronzer brush. I know it's not a kabuki brush, but it's cheap! I was gonna get their mineral brush set but I didn't need too many brushes and they were too small anyway.

A nice size for applying the powder. Since the bristles are so dense, I had to bend and mush the bristles around to make the brush more fluffy so the powder application easier. I can't believe how soft this brush is either.
I couldn't find a picture online to show how big the brush is, so incase anyone is wondering, here it is.


Wow I have 600 followers =D Thank you! And I'd like to say hi to all my new readers =) =) =)

I really think you should do your eyebrows. I highly rec threading, it's more natural than wax. When you shape your eyebrows, the whole face will change and open up the eyes more=more beautiful. TRUST ME!!! If you like full thick eyebrows like I do, you can easily draw them, get a powder eyeshadow and eyebrow pencil (Shu makes a good one so is KATE powder eyebrows). Just follow your natural arch or the eyebrows professional can teach you how to draw them. It took me years to get a perfect technique, lol. Just experiment with it.
