I have long been enamored with nude makeup shades, especially for the eyes and the lips. The classic look of a neutral eye works for every eye color as well as hair color and is universally flattering. From deep to tawny, neutrals are trending right now – although for some of us, they always are.
So if you’re a shimmery blue or purple lover who likes to pile on jewel tones and layers of dark kohl liner, prepare to be converted. This season’s new palettes are just the ticket to make you change your evil ways.
Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude ($65) — Leave it to Bobbi Brown to redefine nude. The ultimate eye set gives you the power to create looks for every occasion. With 12 mix-and-match shades of matte, metallic and sparkle from golden to deep, it’s practically goof-proof.
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eye Shadow 226 Tisse Rivoli ($61) — Creamy soft taupe to chocolate shades in this classic palette of 4 tones will make this a perennial favorite.
Dior 5-Color Eye Shadow Incognito 030 ($60) — Dior’s beloved 5 color palette is reinvented with this pale beige, taupe, peachy combo that looks beautiful on blondes. If you want something more dramatic, go for Earth Reflection 609 with bronzy browns and golden undertones.
Becca Ombre Nudes Eye Palette ($40) — 5 wearable neutral matte tones from latte to espresso without a throwaway in the bunch – you’ll reach for this day after day.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 3 Plush Shadow in the Ingenue 102 ($39) — A neat set of 3 creamy light nudes in slightly shimmery shades. Choose The Innocent 116 for a more dramatic neutral look if you prefer. Perfectly sized shadows add depth to your makeup with no waste.
