using the new metropolitan Decay naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for deal with as well as Body on my upper cheekbones as well as down the bridge of my nose
When I photo no-makeup makeup, as in makeup that looks “au naturale,” metropolitan Decay isn’t the very first brand that springs to mind. I mean…the have an entire sparkly rainbow of shine eyeliners living in their long-term collection (and they’re great!).
Lately, though, with new additions to UD’s naked Skin product line, they seem bound as well as determined to get makeup lovahs believing about them in that way.
But based on my very first swatch of the new naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for deal with as well as Body ($29) on the back of my hand, I did not expect subtle. In the swatch I saw a silvery beige powder so frosty, so sparkly, that I pictured roller skating rinks as well as knee-high socks.
We’re speaking disco sphere territory.
For reference, I’m an NC42-44 (I’m a tad darker than usual right now)
Just then, I heard a high-pitched squeal coming from my cheeks. “GUURRRL! AUF KEINEN FALL!” It was my Grand Canyon-sized pores, however it turns out they were needlessly worrying, since the swatch didn’t accurately communicate the method this powder looked on my face.

Sure, there were a few flecks of silvery shine right here as well as there (it is UD, after all), however the general impact was extremely much like something I’d expect from Chanel — a subtle, sheer glow that brightens whatever up, ever so slightly.

It includes a half moon-shaped brush, which I’ll most likely only utilize to apply the powder on my body, since I believe it may be a bit much for my cheeks, where I believe a lighter application works much better (for me).
The technique is to discover a clean that lets you quickly manage the amount of powder you apply, as well as for this I like a fluffy tapered eye blending clean like the MAC 224.
Applying naked Illuminated with a tapered blending brush… Please reason the manicure, as my nails are a hot mess right now.
