Minimal Eyeshadows Ideal For Everyday Wear

Everyday eyeshadows

| Minimal Eyeshadows Ideal For Everyday Wear! | 

I love experimenting with my makeup by using glittery pigments and creating purple smokey eye looks, but for my everyday makeup, I tend to opt for a minimal look that's quick and effortless to apply. Eyeshadow has the power to perk me up and make me look more awake and fresher than I actually feel. There are a couple of minimal eyeshadows and one swipe wonders in my collection that provide beautiful results as well as being quick and easy to apply...

A delightful duo that I love sporting on a regular basis is the Nars eyeshadow duo in 'St-Paul-De-Vence'. The little compact contains a warm matte brown shade that works well in the crease as well as a pinky rose gold shade that complements the minimalistic look. The combination is perfect for everyday wear as it looks natural and subtle. It looks amazing paired with fresh glowy skin and a burgundy lip in the winter, and in the Spring/Summer months, I'll be wearing the look with bronzed skin and a peachy lip. Magnifique!

When I'm feeling super lazy then I'll reach for a one swipe wonder and one of my all time favourites is the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'on and on bronze' This is a cream eyeshadow so it's effortless to apply as all you need to do is pack it on and blend it out using your ring finger. This makes it ideal for early mornings or for those who are just starting out with makeup. 
 

Matte eyeshadows are ideal for everyday wear and recently I've been loving the all-matte palette that everyone has been raving about for the past few months: Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette. These days I love wearing the shade 'Extra bitter' in my crease with a bit of whatever highlighter I'm using that day on the lid and in the inner corner. It's a simple but effective look! I also love wearing the shade 'Instinct' as a transition shade and pairing it with the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in 'Frozen Quartz'. Similarly to the Maybelline eyeshadow, this is a cream eyeshadow except it's in stick form, so it's just as easy to blend but it's less messy than using an eyeshadow in a pot. 

Another eyeshadow stick that I'm infatuated with is the Catrice Stylo Eyeshadow Pen in 'Copper & Paste'. The formula and lasting power are good but it does drag the skin a little when applying it. But it's the unique shade of copper that has me returning to it time and time again. The copper shadow looks amazing paired with Mac's 'Antiqued' eyeshadow and the two colours blend seamlessly together creating a warm look that's perfect for daytime wear. You could also easily build up both colours for a more intense look that would be appropriate for an event or night out you have coming up. 

Speaking of Mac eyeshadows, I also use 'Cork' paired with 'Woodwinked' quite regularly. The shades work well together to form a soft shimmery look that opens up the eyes, disguising the fact that I stayed up until all hours reading *Oops*   

It's no secret that I love the Pippa palette and the six matte neutral eyeshadows in the palette are perfect to curate a wearable everyday look. It contains three brown shades from a soft brown to a richer warm brown, to a dark chocolate brown shade alongside a deep black shade, a white and a nude shade. It has the perfect selection of shades to achieve a minimal everyday look and the shades are a great foundation for any statement look also.
