I’ve recently determined that frosty eye shadow just doesn’t compliment me as much as it used to. Dang! I do love all of those sparkly colors and it’s easier to find since everyone seems to prefer it, but I’ve gone all rogue and have switched to matte.
Now, I’m not saying that I’ll never ever have a sparkly face again. I’m just saying that matte eye shadow gives my lids a smoother, more polished finished than the sparkles do. There’s a reason for this though and I hate to admit it, but here it is…..I’ve got wrinkles. Yep, it’s true. I know…I know…..no worries. I’m okay with it.
All kidding aside, I am 45 years old now. It would be weird to not have some sort of wrinkles. I even think that I could technically call mine “smile lines” or just fine lines with nothing too deep yet. I take good care of my skin, moisturize daily, etc…., but they’re still going to happen eventually. WHAATEVAH!
I found this matte palette recently at Sephora and I just love it. The brand name is Two Faced and their palettes come in either matte or sparkly. The colors are perfect, in my opinion, and they even comes with detailed instructions for each set of colors so that one can achieve the perfect looks. Sometimes I use the browns, sometimes the purply set and other times I use the blues. I put them on lightly for the daytime and go more dramatic at night. The world is my oyster….well, at least my eyes can look their best.
Oh, here’s the best part, it’s not terribly expensive either. What do you think? Do you have a favorite palette that you swear by?
