5 Essential Eyeshadow Colours

Makeup can be problematic. Sometimes you just want to look good, but don’t know what colours to buy. Maybe you don’t have the money to splurge on a wide spectrum of colours (I know I don’t! :P), or just don’t want to. Maybe you just want to shop for basic makeup and nothing else.

Starting out in makeup, I didn’t want to venture into bright colours, just colours that I could wear everyday and still look great. That’s why I want to share 5 essential eyeshadow colours that can easily be used for everyday use.

Brown

Browns are great for a natural, sophisticated, and classy look. Blending different browns together on the lid and crease and adding a highlight makes a great everyday look. They are also very compatible with other colours. I highly recommend getting a light brown and dark brown eyeshadow if you’re just starting using makeup.

Gold

Golds are also great for a natural, radiant everyday look. They make eyes look awake and luminous, and are also very compatible with other colours. Best of all, they look AMAZING on every type of skin tone.

White/Beige

Beige/White eyeshadows really brighten/open up the eyes. They are mostly used to highlight the inner corner of the eye, but beige and chanpagne eyeshadows can be placed on the lid for an extremely natural look.

Purples/Mauves

Purple is a very versatile colour. Deep, rich plum colours can look very mature, while bright purples (see Sephora palette above) can be very captivating.

Olive

Sephora Medium Shopping Bag Palette

Olive is a toned down, earthy colour that looks great blended with browns, golds, and other greens. Great to add some colour, yet still very subtile and natural.

So there you have it! Five colours that are great for everyday use, or to start off a makeup collection. Hoped this helped you, and thanks for reading.
