Eyeshadow is used to create depth around your eyes, and can even make the eye appear larger than it normally would without eyeshadow. Additionally, you can use eyeshadow as blush, eyeliner, to contour, and to fill in your eyebrows. It’s also worth mentioning that eye shadow can give you a boost of confidence, brighten up your face, and hide veins on your eyelids – all of which combine to give you a youthful appearance.
Keeping these benefits in mind, here are a few things to look for when searching for eye shadow, and also some eyeshadow application tips.
How to Choosing Eyeshadow Palette
Consider your Lifestyle
Your lifestyle will play a major role in choosing an eyeshadow palette that suits your needs. For instance, you wouldn’t want to purchase a palette that has a rainbow variety of colors if your job requires you to look professional. Instead, you’d be better off purchasing neutral color palettes like the cost-effective Physicians Formula Shimmer Stripes Nude Eyes. The only downside to the Physicians Formula Nude eyes palette is that it doesn’t offer any matte shades.
Another option that’s easy on the wallet is NYX Butt Naked Palette because it offers a large variety of colors, and also comes with pretty blushes, bronzers and a highlight pressed powder as well. If you have the money to spend, or just prefer to have one palette that’s easy to travel with and flexible in terms of eye looks, then both the Naked Palette and Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay will give you plenty of options.
Assuming you’re a person who enjoys colorful eye looks, then something like Ben Nye eyeshadows may suit your style. You’ll get a lot of pigment in each of their eyeshadows, and you’ll be able to create unique looks out of colors straight from the rainbow. One more option to consider is Coastal Scents Go Palette Sydney. You may have to build the color a bit to have an intense color combination makeup look with this product, but the price is right.
Quality doesn’t have to cost
When it comes to makeup, there’s often a misconception that the more expensive the product is, the better. In reality though, this isn’t the case – especially with eyeshadow!
There are so many brands that offer you very good colors at reasonable prices like Eyes Lips Face (ELF) cosmetics, Wet’n Wild, CoverGirl and NYX. All of these drugstore brands give you some of the best eyeshadows without draining your savings.
