Tips on Choosing Eye Shadow Palettes
Consider What You Already Have
Think to yourself, “Do I really have these colors?” If you are looking for your first palette we recommend choosing the one that has the basics in order to create a natural look and less colors that you do not use.
Do you like the whole range of colors, or just one or two tones? When you are looking for a palette, look at the color scheme. Consider whether you are actually attracted to all the shadows of the palette. It often happens that you do not get to use certain colors and when you finish your favorites, you get rid of it without using it. Look for palettes that you get to use most, if not all eye shadows.
Occasionally, both finishes come in the same palette. Choose between satin or shimmer eye shadows or matte, which is very opaque. The satin or shimmer eye shadows look best for a night makeup because they give more life to the eyes. It is ideal to give a light touch to the eyes by applying a shimmer eye shadow in the tear duct and below the eyebrow. Matte shades are perfect for a natural look and a photo shoot.
Before buying eye shadows, look for a makeup counter to test the product. Sometimes we go with the mistake of choosing shadows that do not glide on well, which makes the color less intense when placing the product on the eyelid. Our advice is to test the product with the index finger and if you are convinced the intensity of the color, is the indicated palette.
Search for Reviews
Are not you sure about buying an eye shadow palette? We recommend looking for reviews online. The reviews are quite helpful, although in some cases it is better to try the product by yourself so that you form your own opinion.
Custom Shadow Palette
Most eye shadow palettes already come with colors that can be used together. However, there are cosmetic brands that sell eye shadow palettes where you can customize them to your liking. It is a magnetic palette that you can buy empty, depart shadows or blushes of your favorite shades of other brands, and place them in the palette. This is a good idea for having the option to place the specific shades you use and enjoy most without wasting those you do not use in a palette and avoid loading individual shadows.
