Sand Haze Look


I got this Huda Beauty Sand Haze Palette from Sephora PH.  I used to watch Huda Beauty on Youtube when I still have enough time but stopped for years since turning into a mom!  That does not mean I am not updated with the industry though!  I may not watch as many Youtube Videos as before but I still do duly research for updates on makeup trends and brands.

Huda Beauty, based from my research, rose to fame several years back.  Their makeup and skincare line got raves and rants but I made sure to keep in mind their bestselling products.  One of their bestsellers are their eyeshadows and I want to know why.

A basic and easy-to-use palette called Sand Haze is the way to go if you like a neutral and/or party looks in one.

There are 3 types of palette to choose from: Sand, Purple and Khaki.

According to Huda Beauty —-

This palette comes in 3 different colour stories. Each palette represents the off-duty chic street style scene, that is awash with muted tones of ecru, and cappuccino, tempered with darker, more serious colours like deep brown, khaki green, plus dashes of soft, sophisticated shimmer. Each palette contains beautifully buttery mattes, metallics, and shimmery eyeshadow toppers, in complementary shades of eyeshadow, designed to be used individually or together to create an array of arresting effects. The matte formula is pigmented, creamy to the touch, and seamlessly blends on the lid. The metallics have a creamy, richly pigmented, multi reflective, foil texture. For a subtle shimmer finish, apply with dense, flat eyeshadow brushes. For higher foil-like payoff, these work best with a damp eyeshadow brush/sponge brush or finger. The shimmer toppers, slightly sheerer than the metallics, were baked using a mix of finely milled pearls, to highlight and give an alluring pearlescent glow to the lids. For a subtle shimmer finish, apply with a dense, flat eyeshadow brush. For higher payoff, these work best with a damp eyeshadow brush/sponge brush or finger. The palettes come in a hard shell for extra durability and have a full-size mirror inside for on-the-go ease.

Here’s what I have to say after using this palette for months, without eyeshadow base, without ANYTHING BUT the Huda Beauty Palette.

First off, the color payoff is mixed.  The matte ones are smooth, silky and easy to blend.  They look dark on pan but once you use the right brush, it applies like a dream and does not leave marks

The tricky ones to apply are the shimmery ones!  There is minimal fallout so I highly recommend to follow instructions on applying then with damp shadow brush!  For the shimmer ones, best to use natural bristle brush as opposed to synthetic ones!  

If you are into strong eye makeup, this may be a bit, sort of disappointment but if you are like me, who like light to regular party makeup, this is a dream!  Scary on pan but naturally gorgeous on eyes.

I have tried applying these shadows using eyeshadow primer and damp brush and they look absolutely MORE GORGEOUS than ever!  Unfortunately, because I am staying home most of the time, I only did this type of look once for testing and went for this look as daily wear (Zoom meeting wear).

I recommend this palette to regular eyeshadow wearers, this is a great collection especially since you get colors that are unique and neutral at the same time - I’m not sure how you could understand my cotrasting statement but seeing my final photo, you’ll get what I mean! :)
