Shimmer eyeshadow can transform any boring makeup look into a stunning one. But matte eye shadow palettes have a special place in our hearts, after all, they make your look pop and act as the base for that perfect smokey eye.
Whether you have forgotten that you can create several looks using matte eyeshadow alone or simply hate shimmer eyeshadow, it is time we raised a toast to matte eyeshadow, the unsung hero in our makeup kit. Still not convinced to give your shimmers a break and reach out for those mattes?
The following looks will definitely change your mind!
Pop of red
The perfection with which this eye look has been achieved makes us want to dump our shimmer eyeshadows for life! A pop of red paired with similar lips and winged eyeliner is what monochrome makeup look goals are made of. You can create the same look using other bold colours like green or pink.
Talking of bold colours, one colour we absolutely cannot live without when it comes to eye makeup is blue! Blue eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, kohl pencil, you name it we have it. If you’ve got your hands on a blue matte hue, create a winged eyeshadow look that extends up to your eyebrows.
Days when you want to sport the no-makeup makeup look, opt for this earthy brown look that has won our hearts. Simply pick two shades of brown, a light and a dark, and swipe it on your eyelids. Lighter on the inner corner and darker on the outer to create this simple yet ravishing eye look.
Just when you thought creating a smokey eye using matte shades is out of the picture we got the exact look to prove you wrong! Because this classic eye look is more about the shades used and less about the texture. Apply a grey hue on a base of white and highlight it with some brown. Voila!
If there’s one shade that exists in every woman’s vanity kit it has to be nude! Us women can never get enough of nude lipsticks but how about nude eyeshadow? For starters, you can even use a matte liquid lipstick to add colour to your lids and make it look like the best thing on earth!
