ColourPop Nude Mood Palette Tutorial

ColourPop releases new products all the time and although it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with all the new launches, I appreciate all the options they strive to provide. When looking for a new eyeshadow palette, it’s important to love each individual shade so none of it goes to waste. The Nude Mood palette seemed like the perfect combination for the colors I like to wear. With this selection of warm neutrals, the options for everyday looks are endless!

Primer should always be the first step in any eyeshadow routine. My favorite is from Milani! It dries completely clear and is great for oily skin. Once the primer was set, I took one of the lighter matte tan shades called Bare to Wear and buffed that in my crease to start creating definition on the eye. This is a very soft shade, so there’s no need to worry about any mistakes.

Then I took the darker shade below it called Mugged Off and started packing that on the outer corner of the eye, blending the excess up into the crease. The pigment is much stronger on this color, so make sure to work in light layers and add more as needed. Once applied, I went in with a separate, empty, loose-bristled blending brush to soften the edges.

To add a little more definition in the crease, I went in with the Au Naturale shade on a smaller blending brush and buffed that right at the edge of Mugged Off. This will create more of a gradient effect and make the eyes appear bigger. It’s also a good idea to blend with a separate brush after this step to keep the look as seamless as possible.

Then I took the matte cream shade called Bluffin’ and placed that on the inner half of my lid. To get the most pigmentation possible, I packed it on with my finger first and then used a small shader brush to blend it into the crease. I also applied this shade directly underneath my brow bone and on my inner corners to help brighten the eyes.

For eyeliner, I first applied the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in the shade Matte Mulberry halfway along both the upper and lower lashes. Then I took the darkest shade from the palette called Moody and applied that directly on top of the pencil using a small angled brush. This two-step liner method will create a softer look on the eyes that will last longer throughout the day.

Then all there is left to do is curl the lashes and add a few coats of mascara. The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara works great for providing all the length and volume needed to create dramatic lashes without having to apply any falsies!

Here’s a close-up of the final look:

And a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:

To finish the rest of the face, I chose the ColourPop Blush Stix in the shade Invite Only and their Lux Gloss in the color Staying Up. This has been one of my favorite blushes to wear lately because the formula is so smooth and I love the way the terracotta shade pairs with the warm tones on the eyes.

This eyeshadow palette has sold out many times and I definitely understand why! The colors are stunning and the formula is incredibly easy to work with. I love that it has every shade needed to create an entire eye look without having to reach for any other shadows. The provided colors can definitely go in a much more dramatic direction, but I’ve been really enjoying this softer matte look lately! Stay tuned for a full review on this palette coming next week!
