My Top 8 Eye-Shadows of ALL Time!

It was hard to narrow it down, but I feel like I've picked the best of the best. I was going to add in a matte black but I decided that everyone knew what that looked like, and there are so many of them so I skipped it. Here they are:

I picked colors that I feel can be worn everyday, but can also be played up. I'm not going to waste any time so lets just get right into it.

The first color I picked is Too Faced Honeymoon. Its a green gold color that I love putting in the outer half of my lid. I love pairing it with a brown crease color. It really makes my brown eyes pop!

Next is Too Faced Satin Sheets. I use this as an all over the lid color basically everyday. I'm almost hitting pan in my Naked Eye palette. Its a stunning pinky champagne. I can't get enough of it.

Urban Decay by far has my favorite eye-shadow shades. Half-Baked is definitely one of them. Its the perfect golden bronze for a neutral eye.

Next up is Urban Decay's Twice Baked. I love using in the crease with Half Baked in the crease. They're a great duo! As you can see from above, its  shimmery brown color.

I love Rockstar by Urban Decay. Its only recently become one of my favorite. I wanted to use my UD♥NYC palette more, and this one looked so gorgeous to me. Its a gorgeous deep purple shade that can be used everyday. I know that it looks a little scary, but it really does look natural mixed in with a neutral eye. I adore the way it looks with my brown eyes.

Ah, Midnight Cowboy by Urban Decay. I have a love-hate relationship with this shadow. Its a stunning champagne color with a LOT of glitter (maybe just a bit too much, which is the hate in the relationship). It really brightens up the eyes though, and makes a dull champagne pop!

How much more breathtaking can this shadow get? Loaded by Urban Decay is a beautiful deep sea color teal. I can't get enough of this color. I feel like it enhances each and every eye color. This will always be a favorite of mine because of how bold it is, and how amazing it looks.

Last but not least is Benefit's Terracotta Satin (middle shadow). Its a cute pink that isn't too barbie like, good for everyday wear, and perfect for those of us girls who don't fancy pink too much.
