TheBalm Nude ‘Tude Palette Review & Gemma Collins (The Only Way Is Essex) Tutorial

Surprise! It’s a DOUBLE Work It Wednesday! The only real reason for this is because I recently picked up both the Nude ‘Tude and Meet Matt(e) Palettes from TheBalm and wanted to do reviews of both of them, but I also knew that I had tutorials to film using each of them, as well, so I decided to do an individual video on each of these palettes that included both a review of the palette and a tutorial using the palette! Surely, I could have made these two separate weeks of posts but I thought it would be much more fun to surprise you all with two posts in one day!

For the tutorial portion of this video, I recreated a look from one of my favorite cast members of my biggest television obsession over the past few weeks, The Only Way Is Essex! The look I recreated was worn by Gemma Collins, who is one of my very favorite cast members of the show because she is adorable, really loud and lary, over the top and just a whole lot of fun to watch! I also love her sort of “Essex Barbie” style, particularly in this look, with a gorgeous warm toned smokey eye, lots of bronzer and shimmery pink cheeks and glossy pink lips! Check out the inspiration image below and then let’s get on with the tutorial!

So, there you have my second Work It Wednesday for the week! Also, if you watched the video you probably caught on to what this week’s Friday Feature will be – The Only Way Is Essex! I am completely obsessed with this show and I hope to show you all with this post the reason why and why you should be, as well! I am really excited about all of the looks I am doing for this post, as well, and I can’t wait to share them with you all! In the meantime, I wish you all a beautiful rest of the week and a beautiful life!
