Think of eye shadows as the colors in your palette. With the help of various shadows, you can take your look from a daytime office look to a glam night-on-the-town look. Matte and frosty eye shadows can help to bring out the windows to your soul while spicing up your look.
Matte eye shadow is a staple that should be in every beauty maven's arsenal of products. From versatile neutrals to more bold hues of color, matte eye shadow can help to not only emphasize your gorgeous peepers, but can also work to contour and add depth to your eyes. With your eyes being quite possibly the first thing others notice about you, having the right products and knowing what to do with them can amp up your beauty factor.
When headed to the office, keep your makeup professional looking and polished. Matte eye shadow can help to add sophistication to your overall look because it is not overpowering. Warm browns and matte grays can emphasize eyes without making them look like disco balls. For mature skin, frosty shadow, on the contrary, can emphasize fine lines while matte shadow can be worn by women of all ages.
Frosty eye shadow can add the much needed touch of sparkle for a special event or night out. Whether choosing to wear a frosty shadow all over the lid or concentrated only on certain parts of the eye, a glamorous look is just minutes away with the help of frosty eye shadow. Adding a bit of white, light pink or off-white frosty shadow to the inner crease of the eye and underneath the brow bone can emphasize the eye and open it up. Applying the shadow underneath the brow bone will emphasize the arch of your eyebrow for an eye-popping look.
Matte and Frosty Duo
Who says you have to pick and choose? Matte and frosty shadows can work hand in hand to create a beautiful look. Take a light-neutral shadow and sweep it all over the lid. Apply a darker frosty or matte shadow to the crease of your eyelid by sweeping it back and forth like a windshield mwiper. Lastly, apply a bit of frosty white shadow to the inner crease of the eye. Sweep it lightly under the brow bone.
