Maybelline released the best drugstore eyeshadow nudes palette and I think a whole slew of drugstore brands did the same thing and we all flocked to the drugstore because we couldn’t get enough of those affordable nudes.
I don’t know about you, but back then the appetite for nude palettes was absolutely insatiable. The Annabelle eyebrow palette, JLo fresh neutrals, which is quite similar to palettes from Sonia Kashuk Cover girl.
And last but not least, the Loreal paradise enchanted eyeshadow palette, which if you take out the peachy shade is pretty much a neutral palette, so the standards now in 2020 are not the same as they were back in 2014.
There are a lot of discrepancies in pigmentation and now looking back, I could straight-up say it was quite shocking. You can definitely achieve a very nice look with this Nudes palette, but it’s not without a lot of work, because this is a powdery eyeshadow palette.

Maybeline Nudes Palette Tutorial
If I could recommend to you a shadow palette with more relevant color pairings, I would recommend MAYBELINE THE NUDES EYE SHADOW PALETTE.
It is a knockoff of the modern renaissance palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills and that palette has already reached cult favorite status. It’s kind of a holy grail for a lot of people.
To start with, alternated between two taupe shades in the palette. Although this one was actually shimmery, I’m taking a matte taupe shade for the transition and then taking the shimmery brown for the outer lid and I decided to blend a bit at this point.
Now clean the packing brush to move on to the next color, which is going to be a mixture of gold and the lighter bronzy shade, which I will pack on the inner portion of the lid.
Taking the same mixture on an angled brush, start working on the upper and lower lash lines, creating a winged effect and to darken that line.
Using the black shadow afterwards, work on the eyebrows and put on some liquid liner mascara and some false lashes. Easy as that and you are good to go.
