I am a sucker for a good palette. I can carry it in my bag, take it on a trip, and otherwise be completely portable with my makeup, without having to carry a bunch of single products around. Not that I don’t love my singles, but when you’re trying to travel light, they are a bit of an inconvenience.
Even better when the palettes have a bit of style – just a touch of rock and roll. Bobbi Brown has introduced a little face palette that is the equivalent of “dressed up denim,” and I’m really liking her breakout style on this one. Usually Bobbi Brown goes for the ultimate neutral, but Bobbi Brown ‘Denim Rose’ Face Palette jazzes it up a bit.
For the eyes, the palette includes Navajo Eye Shadow, a creamy pinkish white; Grey Denim Eye Shadow, a medium cool grey, Pink Granite Sparkle Eye Shadow, a marble grey-pink; and Dark Rinse Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow, a deep bright blue that reminds me of my favorite pair of Gap jeans.
Pink Rose Blush is for the cheeks, and it is a universally flattering medium pink rose. Lip shades include Cool Rose Creamy Lip Color, a medium bright pink shimmer; Hot Rose Lip Gloss, a bright pink; Iced Lilac Glitter Gloss, a silver pink marble; and Indie Rose Creamy Lip Color, a medium neutral rose.
To get the look, apply Navajo Eye Shadow from lashline to browbone, then apply Grey Denim Eye Shadow on the lower lid up to the crease. Layer the Pink Granite Sparkle Eye Shadow for a hint of sparkle. For nighttime, jazz it up with the Dark Rinse Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow.
Available at Nordstrom for $60.
