We've recently launched our Limited Edition Natural Illusion Eye Palette. It's a vegan friendly luxury palette containing five highly pigmented eyeshadow shades that can be worn alone or blended together to create an endless array of eye make-up looks. It comes in two shade choices, 01 Classic Nude and 02 Soft Rose each with five harmonious shades to use.
The palette is enriched with active natural ingredients including moisturising Sweet Almond Oil, Desert Lime and the antioxidant rich Quandong. Whether it's beauty on the go, or for home, this eyeshadow palette is perfect; coming in a luxury case with mirror and cruelty-free double ended brush.
We chatted to our Make-up Ambassador Max May regarding the palette and what looks he's been creating with the different shadows available. He's also shot a couple of useful make-up video tutorials creating a nude and rose smoky eye look, that we've shared below.
Read our chat, and watch the eye make-up tutorials below:
Nude by Nature (NbN): What’s not to love about an eye palette with an abundance of eyeshadow shades to select from?
Max: Absolutely nothing. Well, other than too much choice maybe?
NbN: The Limited Edition Natural Illusion Eye Palette has five eyeshadows, with multiple finishes - satin shimmer, satin and matte. What is your favourite thing about this eye palette?
Max: I love the selection of colours. They all look great mixed together, or stand individually. I know that sounds weird, but so many brands like to throw contrasting colours into a palette like this, and I think that can become confusing or intimidating.

NbN: What are a few of your favourite hacks for creating different eye looks?
Max: Keep it simple. Use one of the mid tone shades to wash over the lid for a simple look. Highlight the inner corner of the eyes and brow bone to attract and reflect light, and to brighten the eye all over. You could then smudge a darker matte shadow into the lash line when you want to emphasise the lashes or extend the eyes. And then, apply these three looks together for a trifecta!

NbN: Are you able to reveal your top three eye make-up products that you think everyone should own?
Max: As of the launch of the Natural Illusion Eye Palette's it’s definitely the 02 Soft Rose palette. I’m obsessed with these pinky-rosy tones around the eyes. Light or dark they make your eye colour pop, and skin looks so fresh.
