When one of my Instagram friends from Germany tagged me to share my 5 favorite single eyeshadows, I was inspired to turn it into a blog post. While I consider myself to be a palette girl at heart, I have a few single shadows that I absolutely adore. Read on to find out which one of these beauties I wore on my wedding day!
BURBERRY Midnight Brown: This beautiful brown is so multi-faceted, it gives the appearance of a 3 step eye look in a single swipe. The creamy, ever-lasting formula is one of the best I've ever tried. Midnight Brown was my wedding day shadow!
CLINIQUE Black Honey: This red-toned shimmery brown looks smashing against every eye color, much like the universally flattering lipstick of the same name. You can amp up the rich burgundy tones of this one by applying it wet. | '90s Neutrals FOTD tutorial here.
L'OREAL Bronzed Taupe: Bronzed Taupe is a gorgeous, cool taupe with a hint of brown. This is another mono shadow that looks like a multi-step eye once applied to the lid.
URBAN DECAY Hijack: This blue-based teal shimmer is a stunner! One of my favorite eye looks is to apply Hijack on the lid, blend out the crease with MAC Free to Be (a matte coral) and line the upper lashes and outer portion of the lower lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Junkie. | Review of Junkie here.
WET N' WILD Nutty: Nutty is a near exact dupe for MAC Satin Taupe, but the texture is even softer. Oh, and it's only $0.99 cents USD! I use it ALL the time. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen Nutty winking back at you from my daily makeup pics! ;)
