I consider myself to be a pretty realistic person. I know how important it is to take care of my skin. I am all about my skincare routine and making sure that I do everything I can to age gracefully. The beauty industry is definitely making great strides by incorporating amazing ingredients in their products that help in the anti-aging process. Even makeup is getting in on the anti-aging action! 😍
Recently I received the b-glowing BEAUTY Illuminate + Shine Palette ✨ This warm palette is perfect for creating easy, daytime looks, as well as, some beautifully glam evening looks. What’s more it is formulated to flatter and nourish mature skin! Hello!!! Let me introduce you to my fine lines and wrinkles..LOL! Keep reading to learn a bit more about this eye & face palette, and how I came up with a super easy and subtle summer glow makeup look 💖
Let’s start off with the packaging 🎁 This palette comes in a cute little pink zipper pouch that is super multifunctional. Just pop out the palette to use this little bag as a clutch for your next girls’ night out or even as a little makeup bag for on-the-go 👛 I so wish my initials were “BG” How awesome would that be?!?! It would be a totally personalized little purse!
Inside the clutch is the palette which consists of 8 creamy eyeshadows, a primer, and a highlighter. The Illuminate + Shine Palette is designed to brighten, blur, illuminate, smooth fine lines, and nourish the skin with their Age Embracing technology 🌺
Meant to flatter and enhance mature skin, b-glowing BEAUTY has infused their formula with a moisture rich blend of plant-based collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other beautiful ingredients. Their MicroVector Plump GABA-HYA blend helps plump, hydrate, and smooth the skin, all while being incredibly lightweight, easily blendable, and perfect for the delicate skin around the eyes.
OK…let’s get into the nitty gritty…let’s talk about the individual colors in the b-glowing BEAUTY Illuminate + Shine Palette 🎨
The brightening primer and highlighter are both cream formulas and can perform a few different functions. Aside from its obvious use as an eyeshadow base, the primer also acts as a redness concealer for fair to medium skin tones and the highlighter is more on the subtle side and can be used all over the skin for a lit from within glow. As those of us with more mature skin know, you do NOT want a highlighter with a gritty glittery texture.
The eyeshadows a perfect blend of eight shades that work together to create a ton of different looks from daytime to night time.
Let’s talk about each shade working from left to right:
Inner Glow Cream Highlighter (It was hard to actually capture it via photo but it’s there!)
Ethereal – matte soft cream
Ella – metallic champagne
Halcyon – metallic taupe
Baroque – metallic deep chocolate plum
Silhouette – matte soft peach
Cashmere – metallic subtle gold
Vintage – metallic soft brown
Rococo – metallic bronze copper
Now let me preface this next part with “I am not a MUA!” I am a normal girl/woman/mom/wife like most of you…With that being said, I found this palette very user friendly. Perfect for everyday, and inclusive enough that it would be great for travel as well. Just add a few more products and you can easily create a complete look 😍 I took this palette for a spin and created a subtle summer glow makeup look…keep scrolling to check it out! 🠟🠟🠟
