Essential Neutral Eye Shadow Palettes

Pin It


Quite a few brands are providing neutral eye shadow palettes for their customers. Today, it's all about convenience, yet value. If a few extras are thrown it, then that's a plus.

I'm all about bold colors, but every once in a while, I find that I just want something classic and simple. Classic in a sense that I want my makeup to look natural, yet simple enough to where I'll only need a few minutes to spare.

In makeup, I've realized that if you have a good neutral or natural palette, then you have your essentials. You can always build upon color -from green to purple and blue, or any color in the rainbow.

So I've put together a few palettes that I think are noteworthy.

High End Mascaras- Benefit, Lorac, Urban Decay, Buxom, Dior & More

Pin It I  have worked around several brands of makeup- most of them are fairly expensive. This includes Iman Cosmetics- which is very affordable, Urban Decay, Lorac, Paula Dorf, Bare Escentuals, Too Faced, Laura Geller, Smashbox, Sue Devitt, and more. When you incorporate tax, I can fill my car up to at least half if I were to purchase just one tube of mascara (I think the current price of unleaded gas in my area is around $3.37). With the way some people shop for makeup, you wouldn't think there was a recession.

If you are wondering why I don't write as often about makeup, then here's why:
I'm the type of person that when I'm around something all day several times a week, I don't want to be bothered by it when I go home- unless I'm in one of my sporadic moods. This is usually energized by me wanting to educate myself. If I get an "ah-ha" moment, then I will delve deep into something, but this is usually when I look up products that I don't work around. I am writing this post because I want to provide my opinion and information that will be valuable to anyone that chooses to read this.
