If you’re looking at trying out a different makeup look this season then ditch the browns and blacks and opt for a sultry rose gold smokey eye. Not only does it suit every skin tone but it also adds the perfect amount of shimmer on a summer night. Since I’ve been obsessing over this look lately I decided to try it out with my new Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette. Here is a step by step process on how I did it:
Step 1– Prep the lid with a primer/moisturiser. Then use the lightest shade in the palette to create the perfect base.
Step 2– Apply a generous amount of brown eyeshadow on the crease and blend it.
Step 3– Using a flat brush apply the rose gold shade in the centre. While blending it just ensure that you don’t apply it on the inner corner of the eye.
Step 4– Apply a little bit of black eyeshadow on the outer edges for that smokey effect.
Step 5– Take the rose gold eyeshadow and apply it on that lower lid as well to create a depth.
Step 6– Highlight the inner corners of the eye using a white shadow from the palette
Step 7– Once it’s all blended well apply a mascara and add some drama to the eyes
Step 8– Complete the base makeup, contour and wear a pale pink lipstick.

Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette Review
The Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette features 15 eyeshadows mainly in earthy and bronzy shades (perfect for Fall). The matte browns are ideal for subtle day time makeup and the shimmering ones are perfect for a fascinating evening look. The soft velvety matte black packaging is super fancy and luxurious but is the palette really worth it? Let’s find out..
– The shades are perfect mix of warm, cool and shimmer (More Bronzy).
– The palette is lightweight and not bulky, easy to carry
– The texture of the eyeshadow is great, not powdery at all.
– If you love bronze shades then this would be a good pick
– The colours blend really well together.
– The pigments are not at all strong, atleast on my skin. The shades have to be reapplied twice or thrice for the colour to show up which is a little disappointing for me.
– I wish the shades had names instead of digits.
– The palette doesn’t have a mirror unlike other eyeshadow palettes.
– The black eyeshadow is not pigmented enough, it’s very light even after two applications.
Verdict: The pigments appear to be very light on an Indian skin tone. If you’re looking for subtle bronze shades then only it’s a good buy.
