Collection: Neutral Matte Palette



I wear mostly shimmery eyeshadows because my makeup collection is filled with them. I even wear shimmery neutrals as a day look! So, I finally decided to build up my collection with toned down neutral matte colors. I don't look like I got attacked by a glob of glitter ball on my eyes anymore. =)


First Row: Kid, Wedge, Cork, Haux, Swiss Chocolate, Folie
Second Row: Espresso, Corduroy, Brown Down, Embark, Shadowy Lady

I use Kid, Wedge, or Cork as a transition color. They blend out dark eyeshadows and harsh lines beautifully.

I use Haux, Swiss Chocolate, or Folie for my crease when I want to create a neutral look, yet still looking sultry.

I apply Corduroy, Brown Down, or Embark for my outer v. If I wanted to spice it up just a little bit, I use Shadowy Lady, which is an amazing dark plummy purple.

I thought Espresso would have been too dark for my brows; however, when I applied it, it was the perfect shade.

Mac Eyeshadows in pan form cost $11.00 for 1.5 grams (some of the eyeshadows have 1.3 grams) and cost $16 in pots.

What eyeshadows do you use to create a smooth transition to you highlight color?

  2. I agree, those with mature skin should stay away from shimmery eyeshadows because they can make your lids look "scaley" and will definitely accentuate wrinkles.

    I prefer the eye makeup to look natural on mature skin. Therefore, I recommend using a creamy beige color, such as Mac Brule, all over the lids and defining the crease with a matte brown shade, such as Mac Swiss Chocolate or Mac Espresso. These 3 Mac eyeshadows will complement blue eyes. =)
