I mentioned these two eye shadow duos in my yearly favorites because they are the perfect shadows to use for a pretty, defined everyday eye in my favorite eyeshadow formula.
All About Eve is a really pretty duo of shimmery neutrals. One is a little more pink, but they basically swatch the same on my skin tone. I love that there aren’t hardcore shimmery or glittery so they give me no trouble with fallout and they don’t look like too much on my eyes. They are also toned down enough to use under the brow bone to highlight (I’m generally a matte under-brow-highlight kinda gal).
The Cordura duo comes with my two favorite kinds of brown, a warm midtone brown and a darker brow for definition. I love using the warm brown in the crease and the darker one in the outer v of the eye for some something-something. I also love using this duo alone for a smokey eye look. These two browns blend so beautifully. They look stunning together. Also, these darker colors have no fallout on me, which is just great (I really hate fallout).
I usually use all of these colors to do a daytime eye with some definition, but as I mentioned earlier, these colors are really versatile. You can use Cordura for a super dark or, daytime smokey eye. You can also use All About Eve and just the midtone brown from Cordura for an easy eye look.
You can get these duos at NARS counters, online, or at Sephora for $34 each.
The rundown: A+, and a favorites status.
