Happy Tuesday! For today's five series as I've been calling it features everyday eyeshadows that I reach for when do my makeup. This was inspired by me playing with different looks and what neutral eye makeup choices I have. So here are my top five choices when it comes to eyeshadow and I did try to vary it out.
The first palette and eyeshadow I grab for is my Suesh 6-Piece Custom Palette which have shades I choose that would look great for either everyday use or fancy looks since this was the palette I created when I was taking makeup techniques in fashion school. I still reach for it and mostly now just use the matte brown shade and metallic shimmery brown together but the other colors can also be used and I think that gold will be the perfect color I could add for some autumn makeup looks and the black is very pigmented and perfect for a night time going out smokey eye look. I'm so happy with the colors of these and for me they are perfect for my usage. I also have reviewed this as well if you wanted to see them up close here.
The second palette that is perfect for everyday and more versatile and has different options is the MUA Undressed Eyeshadow Palette. I featured it in my September Favorites and just as I said I have been playing with different neutral eye looks which inspired doing this blog post as well. It has a lot more colors and gives me a whole lot more options and I tend to reach for this one when I want a more polished look and have somewhere important to be. They are so pigmented and really easy to blend and a dream to use plus my kind of colors. If you'd like to see me do a full review I would be happy as I am on a swatching fest with all my eyeshadows.
Next is an eyeshadow duo which is the Pixy Sorrel Brown and this is by far my favorite and one I use pretty much every time I need eyeshadow. When I wasn't really into experimenting I would use this and it created the perfect look I was going for and never failed me. It is this gorgeous pink color and you know how much I love my pinks. I just add that to the center of my lid and it has some sparkle to it which makes it so pretty. I blend it all in with the matching brown shade and it is my go to neutral eye featuring my favorite colors. If you want I did a full review here on it.
Moving on to single eyeshadow picks which are what I use for all over lid colors and don't want to make an effort really. First is the MAC Eyeshadow in Honey Lust and it is this gorgeous sparkly bronzey brown and I can't stop staring at it. I got it as a gift when I purchased a few things from MAC and it is an amazing color just to add to your lids and blended out. It does have similarities with the one eyeshadow in the 6 custom palette so if I don't want to waste it then I have a pretty good dupe. I don't have a review or a makeup look up yet but you can see it in my MAC Haul I did a few months ago here.
The last eyeshadow I am featuring has to be another close fave and it's the Etude House Look at My Eyes in BR407. It's this lovely honey brown and it is matte but has a few shimmers in it too. It is another all over lid color and it is the softest and blends in right away. I was really impressed with this and now I love the eyeshadow and may pick up more. I know a matching one to blend with and maybe a pink as I have seen them and they are so nice. I didn't know whether to review this alone since this has been in my wunderlist app for a while but don't know if I should review a single eyeshadow. It;s great though and maybe if I pick up a few more it can be a combined post. I found the link to that exact eyeshadow here if you fancy it as well.
Those were my top five eyeshadow picks at the moment. I do have quite a selection and it was hard narrowing it down to these. Ever since I went to makeup school it seems like I've just been drowsing in the amount of eyeshadow palettes I have. The worst part is that I have so many more on my wish list that I don't know what to do with it all. I'm hoping to share some more face of the days and eye makeup looks now that I have been practicing a lot more and also show you maybe a few tutorials. Not sure about those quite yet as I still haven't even mastered it on myself but I'm planning and let me know if there is a particular one you'd like to see. Also I'd love to know what you reach for and what your top five eyeshadows you would use for everyday or if your a neutral or a bright color wearer. So until next five series I will see what will be up next.
What eyeshadow palettes do you grab for everyday?
