Gift Guide 2012: Stacey Sutton Look with Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Lip & Eye Palette!












This Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Palette is from Bobbi's Christmas 2012 Collection... A great gift if not for yourself, then to someone who loves nude shades... I really like the sleek design with the silver Bobbi Brown emblem... You get three eyeshadows in Navajo [perfect off white highlighter], New Downtown [new shade: a soft brown], and Espresso [a dark brown] - all of the eyeshadow shades are matte... You also get Uber Beige Lip Colour [a brown-beige], Blushed Heather Glitter Lip Gloss [also a new shade: glittery pink] and a mini Almost Nude Glitter Lip Gloss [a very flattering shimmery nude]...

When I saw this palette immediately I thought of Tanya Roberts who was playing Stacey Sutton in A View to a Kill - one of my all time favourite James Bond movies... When I was little I was fascinated with the stunning Stacey, the make-up she wore, the dresses and not to forget her awesome cat! Almost twenty years on and so many more James Bond ladies yet I still find her iconic beauty most memorable... 

Her eye make-up was heavy but all in nude and warm shades making her piercing blue eyes stand out even more and of course the classic over-drown nude brown lip - a very 80s make-up combo... And so that's what I went for - heavy nude! On the eyes I used all three eyeshadows, applying the new shade Downtown all over the lid to intensify the outer V I blended in the darkest shade Espresso, mixing both colours I also applied them under the lower lash line, and finally to highlight the brow-bone I swept over a touch of Navajo... And as for the lips, I applied the Uber Beige lipstick, and on top a touch of the Almost Nude glittery lip gloss...

LOVE
