A Neutral Look with Wet n Wild's Nude Awakening

Wet n Wild's Nude Awakening has been getting endless attention from me since I first got my hands on it. For a while I only stared lovingly at the unopened package afraid to use it because it was way too precious. Eventually I snapped out of it and painted my face with the eyeshadows.

I took my own advice and added a base after applying elf's $1 primer and, just as with the other palette in this set, I LOVE IT! The eyeshadows are just what you'd expect from Wet n Wild's Color Icon line. I definitely suggest you snatch this one up if you love neutral colors and you're lucky enough to find it in stores.

  1. So pretty! I really love your "Get the Look" diagram!!

    1. Thanks, Emie! And thanks for the PF recommendation, I got it on sale and I am IN LOVE!

      I figured the diagrams would suffice till I figure out my YouTube set up. Glad you dig it. :)

  2. you are such a beauty and your illustrations are so awesome and helpful!! i searched high and low for this palette and never did find it. i am loving the wnw comfort zone palette i did snag, though!

    1. I'm glad it helps! I'll take any excuse to play around in Illustrator.

      The Comfort Zone palette was my first WnW 8-pan palette and it's the only one I've yet to open. I've been hoarding my makeup lately, it's awful. I just had to update the post and remove beautyjoint.com because they only have Going in the Wild left but you should check out nonpareilboutique.com if you're willing to pay a little extra for them.

  3. this is amazing! and you are so stunning. I love your posts, every last one of them!

  4. Awesome style and a beautiful face to boot! You definitely deserve more followers of your blog. I'm glad I accidentally stumbled upon you.
