Sometimes I don’t want to fool with eyeshadow. It’s the longest part of my makeup-applying process, and sometimes I want to just sweep some color over my lids, blend it out, and be done with it! I usually go for a shimmery champagne, nude, or bronze color. Here are some of my favorite colors to use from the drugstore!
NYX Iced Mocha – this color is a dupe for MAC’s Satin Taupe, and it’s the perfect shimmery taupe color that gives the eyes some dimension.
Loreal Infallible in Amber Rush – I LOVE this eyeshadow and I’m sure I have talked about it before. It is pretty much a pressed pigment with all of the color payoff. The color is a gorgeous, rose gold shimmer. It’s just beautiful on the lids.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Nude Compliment – these cream shadows are my favorite, especially this one and Bad to the Bronze. This color is the cream version of the NYX shadow, but with more of a sheen, and it is a smidge darker. These shadows are awesome when you are in a hurry; just use your finger to blend out and you’re done! And they really do stay on forever!
Elizabeth Mott Pop Goes The Shadow in Champagne – This is a light, very shimmery gold color that looks great all over the lids. I love this when I don’t want to look like I’ve got a lot of makeup on. It gives just a little bit of something extra to the eyes and brightens them up.
Rimmel Scandaleyes pencil in Bad Girl Bronze – this is a cream pencil that is so smooth and blends out so well on the eyes. This color is a true dark shimmery bronze that looks great as an all over the lid color, and also smudged into the upper and lower lash lines.
