Profusion Cosmetics Nudes Palette Tutorial

The more popular the beauty community has gotten, the more dramatic the makeup looks have gotten. I completely understand the creative outlet it provides, but honestly y’all that’s not what I like to wear on a daily basis. When I sit down to do my makeup, my end goal is to enhance my natural features and add just a little bit of girly glam. This new Nudes palette from Profusion Cosmetics is perfect for that! It has all the basics and a super smooth formula that practically blends itself!

To start, I primed my eyes with my favorite Milani eyeshadow primer. Once that was dry, I went with the warm camel color in the palette called Tart and buffed that into my crease using a large buffing brush to start building the shape. This will also provide a beautiful gradient behind the other shades that we’ll be applying on top.

Then I went in with the medium matte brown shade called Indulge and packed that on the outer third of my eyelid. All of these shadows are incredibly pigmented, so it’s very important to tap the excess powder off of the brush before touching it to the skin. It’s much easier to work in light layers than it is to erase the mistake of applying too much product.

After that color was applied, I went in with a separate, empty, more loose-bristled blending brush to create a softer appearance. I also added a little bit more of the first Tart shade in my crease right at the edge of where the Indulge shade stops. This will create the illusion of more lid space, making the eyes appear bigger.

For the rest of the lid, I went in with the shimmery pink shade called Icon. When using a shimmer shadow, I like to pack the color on with my finger first to get the most intense pigmentation possible and then blend it out in the crease with a small shader brush. That method will also help keep the shadow in place longer without creasing, which is essential for those of us with hooded eyes.

Then I decided to go in with the brightest shimmer shadow called Exclusive to brighten the center of the eye. This could also be placed on the inner corner of the eye, depending on your eye shape and where you want to add a little extra dimension. For this purpose, I just use my finger and no brushes to not only make this step quicker, but also to provide a more noticeable result.

To brighten around the rest of the eye, I took the second matte shade in the palette called Clay and placed that both underneath my brow bone and on the very inner corner of my eye. Depending on your skin tone, you could also use the lighter Flurry shadow or combine them both for a customized shade.

For eyeliner, I first applied the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in the shade MatteMulberry halfway along both my upper and lower lash lines. Then I took the darkest brown eyeshadow in the palette called Cavalry and packed that directly on top of the pencil. This two-step method will create a softer appearance that will last longer throughout the day.

To finish up, I curled my lashes twice and added three coats of the Tarte Big Ego mascara. Fake lashes are another makeup product that has gotten really popular, but is definitely not necessary for everyday. Especially for a look as simple as this! Show your natural lashes some love and just use a good mascara instead.

Here’s a close-up of the final look:

And a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:

This eye look can pair beautifully with so many different blushes and lip options, which is one of the reasons I love it so much. Keeping the eyes neutral provides you with so many choices for everything else! In this photo, I chose to pair it with the Profusion Perfect Cosmetics Pout Soft Matte Lip Tint in the shade Confident topped with the Profusion Cosmetics Glitzy Pout Sparkling Lip Topper in the shade Divine. 

The quality of this eyeshadow palette is absolutely wonderful! The price point is perfect at only $5 and I love that it’s condensed to just eight shades to minimize repetition of colors. This is such an easy, go-to eyeshadow look that’s perfect for any occasion! Keep an eye out for a full review of this palette coming soon that will include all of the details and swatches of every shade!
