This Bobbi Brown palette has been in my bag for a month now and I have decided that I can’t live without it. All I need for a complete makeup on the go is this, mascara and lipgloss. The nudes are easy to just swipe on without precision but even if you want dramatic smokey eyes, you really do have all the tools you need – use the dark brown shadow with the small tapered brush for application above the lash line and the darker taupe shadow with the floofy end of the brush to blend. You use the light shimmer to accent the brow bone, right below the eyebrows. The tapered brush is great for the brows, you use the edge for the ends of the brows and the wide part for the rest of the brows. You can also use it to lightly line your eyes for a perfectly natural look. Voila, serious make up all in one little palette! I do not leave home without it =) Bobbi Brown Basic Eye Palette at Nordstrom for $40. Receive a full-size Sparkle Eyeshadow in Mica with a $75 Bobbi Brown purchase. $24 value, online only.
