Bare Boned: Finding your Natural Lid
If you know me you'll know I'm not about the heavy makeup. I think dramatic eye shadow can look a little overwhelming, but I've always liked a little contrast on the lid.
In high school I used to use my sisters foundation as my shadow (she's a lot tanner than I am). I was looking for the perfect product for this look ever since. I like to use a creme shadow as a base if I am going to wear eye shadow, and if not, it is a pretty and natural look to the lid. This product list is from lighter to darker skin tones.
NYX eyeshadow in 'I Have a Headache' $5
Although this isn't a creme this is a really pretty shadow that brightens the eye.
Becca Eye Tint in Opal $24
All of BECCA's products are super pigmented and rich formulas, this is a perfect base for shadow.
Perricone MD No Eyeshadow Eyeshadow $35
Perfect bare bone color.
M.A.C. Paints in Sublime Nature $22
This is what I use for a night look, or when I'm going out. It's a perfect shade for my skin tone.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Malted $26
All of Bobbi Brown's creme shadows are so pretty
You can always go with your favorite concealer and buy it a couple shades darker than your normal shade. My favorites are the Nars Creamy Concealer and Benefit Erase Paste.
