My previous posts have been focusing on the face, and not the eyes, more specifically the eyeshadow. The lighter the color the more natural it is. We have all tried the dark eyeshadows, and to be honest, we look like someone punched us in the eye. I prefer the different shades of brown or sandy I ish/goldenish colours that complete the simple look.
My all time favorites are from MAC. Mac’s shadows differ from the rest due to their long-lasting ability and great blending. I even tried Chanel’s, but to be honest, it doesn’t work well with my face. Bobbie brown also has amazing shadows in natural-ish shades. So does Inglot, but with the majority of CLOWN colours.
Those 4 eyshadows are a good buy. From the bottom to the top: Expensive Pink, Woodwinked, bronze, and Sable. By far, my favorite eyeshadow is “sable”, and many friends have asked me for its name when I’m wearing it.
SABLE (frost): It’s a lovely shimmery medium-dark brown with strong red undertones. Very rich & very pigmented. It brings out all eye colours. This specific color suits most skin tones. Apply this color on your eye lid, and for a more dramatic touch, use the MAC 217 brush à used for the crease & blending, and apply it with (BROWN DOWN EYESHADOW- MAC) on the Crease of your eye. It will look gorgeous.
WoodWinked: gorgeous warm dark golden brown shade, slightly shimmery but more metallic. It Goes well with olive skin, but not very fair skin. Suits for a bronzy tanned look.
Bronze (frost): A beautiful dark bronze. The frost effect it has gives a slight highlight in a metallic way. Enough shine to wear in the day time, but not too glittery. Deep colour and its dramatic colour is buildable. Similar to woodwinked but it is brassier.
Expensive pink: Pink with gold duo chrome. It has a mix of pink/gold/coral shades.
One tip: don’t just apply eyeshadow and stop. Complete the full eye look. Liquid eyeliner + mascara will enhance the look. Plain eyeshadow sometimes makes you look dull.
