When I used to think of eyeshadow I did NOT think of everyday. Did you? Eyeshadow to me was for work meetings (if you’re lucky) and special occasions, but definitely not everyday. Eyeshadow felt fancy and like a commitment. I’m not a professional at make up, nor do I claim to be at all, and eyeshadow felt like something for professionals. You had to know how to use make up brushes, how to mix colors and smoke the colors out in the perfect way and that was not my thing. Anyone else with me on this? Well, I felt this way until recently.
What You Need To Achieve Your
Everyday Eyeshadow Look
Six months ago I discovered everyday eyeshadow, which for the most part has become my everyday and event eyeshadow. All you need is a few good colors and a finger or a brush. It really is so simple. I typically mix two or three colors together and on most days use my fingers to literally just rub the shadow on my eyelid. Somehow doing this with more than one color adds the perfect amount of dimension while keeping my shadow simple enough for everyday but looks professional. It’s the perfect eyeshadow tip for non make up pro’s like me.
Top 3 Everyday Eyeshadow Palettes
- Urban Decay Naked Basics — The Naked palettes are my absolute favorite. I love how you get so many colors in one palette, the quality is great ad the colors are always amazing. The Basics palette is a classic that everyone should have in their make up kit. You can build so many different looks with it from just using the palette on it’s own or using it as your starting point and mixing in other colors as you go along.
- Urban Decay Heat Palette – This palette is the latest to my collection and it is my absolute favorite. I am obsessed with the warm tones and how their is color but it is still very natural and perfect for an elevated everyday look.
- Flower Beauty Shimmer Palette – Flower Beauty is Drew Barrymore’s beauty line and it is amazing. I swear, she does it all. This is one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes I own and the one I wear most often. It really is my everyday palette, not to mention it is the most affordable of them all.
