5 Winter Eyeshadow Colors For 2015

5 Winter Eyeshadow Colors For 2015

You’ve been standing at the Nars eyeshadow counter for the last twenty minutes trying to decide between pale pink, beige pink, or shimmery pink salmon. Everyone’s been there! Finding the right eyeshadow can sometimes be overwhelming and most definitely a journey of trial and error. Here are some trending options to help narrow your search before you reach the counter this Winter.

    NARS

    Color: Portobello –matte neutral beige/matte warm beige

    $35.00 Duo Eyeshadow

    If you’ve been keeping up with the current beauty trends, you’ll know this fall it’s all about the bare face and bold dark lip. This gorgeous eyeshadow duo by NARS is truly your one-stop destination this winter. The neutral beige is the perfect color for the inner corners of the eyes while the warm beige blends beautifully from the middle to the outer crease. This beige duo will instantly brighten up your eyes for a fresh face look. This eyeshadow duo is the perfect color combination for your chic, black work suit and bold red lip. Regardless how wild your Thursday night was, you’ll come to work looking, refreshed and wide-eyed with these natural looking shades.

      NARS

      Color: Malacca- iridescent peacock

      $25.00 Single Eyeshadow

      This iridescent green will have heads turning as it adds just the right amount of pop to your holiday party dress. This mermaid green as I like to call it, works beautifully alongside brown pallets, and pairs especially well with brown eyes. Focus this color in the outer crease of the eyelid, blending into color into a V-shape toward the middle of your lid. If you want a little less pop, use a damp, thin, angled brush and stenciling the color into your top lash line. I see this pairing nicely with that LBD and gold pumps or dare I say a sequined black dress for New Years!

        Make Up For Ever

        Color: Pinky Beige (iridescent)

        $21.00 Artist Shadow

        If you’re looking for a more natural color, this iridescent pinky beige shadow is your go-to gal! The shimmer brightens the eyes and adds a subtle shade of pink to the lids. I would recommend using this color as an all over base for that “no makeup makeup look” or in the inner corner of the lids to highlight and open up the eyes. This color would look beautiful with black leggings and an oversized, off-the-shoulder cream sweater and brown knee-high boots.

        Urban Decay

          Color: Secret Service- soft cool brown matte

          $19.00 — Eyeshadow

          Advertising

          It’s no secret; I’m devoted to my brown eyeshadows. This almost taupe-like brown should be a staple in every girl’s eyeshadow collection. It’s so versatile! I see it as the perfect crease color for evening or daytime. If you’re going for the more natural look, this is a great because it doesn’t have any shimmer to it, which can sometimes look more done up. Although this color could easily compliment any outfit, I would pair it with cuffed denim and a chic navy blazer over a white v-neck tee.

            Buxom

            Color: Lingerie Lover- matte mauve

            $12.00 Eye Shadow Bar Single Eyeshadow

            This color is such a beautiful mauve, and truly, a girl can never go wrong with mauve. For those girls who want more pizzazz than the bare eye look, but less bold than the smokey eye, this color falls nicely in the middle. This looks lovely as a base lid color or if you want to add a little definition to a natural eye look, add this to the crease for subtle drama. I envision this with a matching mauve lip, chunky grey scarf and fitted pea coat for those cold, crisp morning walks through Central Park.

            How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

            How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

            Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

            The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

            The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

            Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

            Advertising

            Review Your Past Flow

            Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

            Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

            Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

            Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

            Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

            Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

            Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

            We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

            Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
