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.
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.
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!
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.
Color: Secret Service- soft cool brown matte
$19.00 — Eyeshadow
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.
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.
