Summer Makeup Edit: Estee Lauder Bronze Sands Eyeshadow Palette

As I mentioned in one of my latest posts, I've been trying to get to grips with a more sheer base. A year ago light coverage foundations and tinted moisturisers were a no-go for my oily skin, but fast forward a year and I'm in love! My skin had changed and become more combination, so as long as I still remember to powder my t-zone, they work really well.

I decided to give my new light base a trial run along with my new Estee Lauder Bronze Sands Eyeshadow Palette and this is the look I came up with.

First of all, the pictures above were taken about 5 hours after I'd applied everything, so I could truly test out the foundation, and I think it performed really well. It is a tad patchy in places but for someone who used to run in the opposite direction from sheer products, I'm impressed. I'm also a little bit of a foundation snob, so the fact that it's Revlon, says a lot.

I'm in love with this eyeshadow palette, the colours are absolutely gorgeous, if a little crumbly, but I can get over that. I'm definitely partial to a bit of turquoise shadow.

Let me know what you think, have you tried the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation yet, thoughts?
