a pretty *almost* all-in-one palette

Homemade Apple Pie


I’m very picky when it comes to makeup palettes. When scanning them over, I want to be able to use every single one of the colors available to make it worth my money. And oftentimes, in eyeshadow palettes especially, there are a few totally random colors that I know I won’t ever touch.

This bare minerals palette caught my eye at Sephora last week. Aren’t the colors so pretty?


Be Beautiful palette, cat dish

I want to try a few different looks from this palette, but I started out with a soft, everyday look.

I swept Graceful all across the lid and added Exhale to the crease. I used a small angled brush to apply Exhale to my lower lash line. With a smaller powder brush, I swept Faux Tan Matte across the outer parts of my face. With a blush brush I applied Golden Gate Matte to my cheeks, then added Inner Beauty to the very center of my cheeks. I used Promise right under my brow bone, and added Presence to the inner corner of my eye and swept it onto my nose a bit.

For lips, I added a light layer of Smashbox Rookie for the softest touch of pink.



I loved the result. The colors were pigmented and blended really well. I could not be more pleased with this palette! It’s great for travel but also great to keep right on your counter and use daily!

I’ll follow up with another post using the two other eyeshadow shades, Beautiful and Confident, to show an alternative look!

Some more of my recent makeup favorites here and here!

I absolutely love the colors in this eye shadow palette – I recently just tried the Bare Minerals loose powder foundation and LOVE it! I might just have to try this as well!

This palette is gorgeous! I love pink-tones so much as they suit my skin tone better. I’m definitely going to look into purchasing this one x

I have recently acquired the Lorac Mega Pro 3 palette and I am obsessed with every single color… it’s awesome when you find a palette that you get your money’s worth!

I’ve been searching for a purplish matte palette! Your photo looks like the perfect hit. The photo on the website looks more pink, which would you say it is??

Elizabeth says · 11.08.16

Also very picky on palettes! As they can be a waste of money if you only use a few of the colors! Recently got the Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue and love it! Great for traveling!!

Great palette for fall – love that plum shade! Loving palettes in general right now – I find I’m able to get so much more product while taking up less storage space in my vanity!

This palette looks so lovely! I love palettes like this that make my traveling life much easier.

Heather says · 11.08.16

This palette looks so pretty and you are beautiful as always. I’d love to see more short videos of you applying make up. I’m a newbie when it comes to applying more than just blush and mascara so I need all the help I can get!

Summer says · 11.08.16

I’m a sucker for palettes! This one suits you perfectly!

Jen says · 11.08.16

Yes Ma’am! I am so over palettes that have 4-5 beautiful neutrals, and then a hot pink, brick orange, chartreuse…you get the picture. Give me all the neautrals! I know it may be boring; but it’s what works for every day life. And can we do a little happy dance for the mattes?! no glitter party here!

Katie says · 11.08.16

Beautiful! I’ve never tried a Bare Minerals palette!

Emma Bought What says · 11.08.16

I would love to see some more dramatic make-up looks!

Amanda says · 11.09.16

That palette looks beautiful on you!! What foundation are you using? Your skin looks flawless 🙂

Josie says · 11.09.16

Would you please post pics of you using the “Confident” color (#8)? I have very similar skin tone, hair, and eye color as you and am unsure what it would like ON me…but I LOVE it in the palette 🙂 Thanks!

That sure is a pretty palette! I find it funny how it also matches your sweater perfectly!

Often palettes have only a few colors that are good. It’s wonderful when you find one that’s a total winner.

Aimee says · 11.11.16

This palette looks really pretty. I have blue eyes and have heard that lavender and plums are good colors for me. Do you think this palette would be good for my blue eyes?

Kate says · 11.11.16

for sure!
