Fall’s must-have eye palette takes you effortlessly from day to night with a sophisticated and universally flattering selection of nude shadows in three different textures: soft matte, lightly pearlized and metallic high-shimmer. Three eyeshadow duos come in a customizable 3-Pan Palette, which can also be filled with your choice of any Bobbi Brown eyeshadow or blush shades.

Using a tapered crease brush, lightly blend the color into the crease Define the crease with a small, tapered crease brush and tap a rich, violet-berry shade into the crease to add depth.
