Something a little less bright, but no less pretty, on the blog today. The summer palette from Becca is the Sunchaser set this year, and it’s a lovely one.
So many summer collections are either too orange or contain a bright that is less than useful, so for us who prefer to stay pale year-round (you will never see me write about a home fake-tanning product on here), a lot of summer collections are pretty much unwearable. This was a really lovely surprise when it arrived, for it’s a beautiful selection of nude shades, which has very quickly gained a place in my heart
The four shades are: (clockwise from top) Matte Buff, Softly Metallic Peach, Metallic Tweed and Metallic Sienna. I wouldn’t really describe any of these shades as a “metallic”, they’re soft shimmers, and I can’t really tell the difference between the “soft metallic” and just plain “metallic” either.
This, for me, is an almost perfect “nude” eyeshadow palette – I don’t get along with the Urban Decay Naked palette too well – I’ve been away a couple of times this month, and this palette has come away with me on each trip, as you can create a “no-makeup” look quite easily, but by changing the amount of Tweed and Buff that you use (Tweed as a liner, and Buff in the contour), you can make a softly smokey eye very easily too.
Swatches don’t show much (they’ve been done with a finger over bare skin) but that’s kind of why I like it, it’s the perfect summer collection for the pale as the dead, like what I am.
The Sunchaser Quad will be available from SpaceNK soon for £32.
