Best Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes For 2018 For Gorgeous Eyes
Looking for the best neutral eyeshadow palette for 2018? Neutrals are my favorites because they can be used for office looks as well as dramatic evening looks. I generally only wear neutrals since I find that they flatter my skin tone the most. I own all 3 UD Naked palettes as well as UD basics and a host of other palettes so I've quite a lot of experience when it comes to picking the best palettes for ones needs.
There no single universal best neutral eyeshadow palette for every single person because it really depends on your skin tone (warm or cool) and your preference for matte or shimmery textures. A palette that may be perfect for my very warm skin tone may look "too warm" on someone with a cooler skin tone.
Important things to keep in mind when evaluating neutral eye palettes is pigmentation and texture. I'm very spoiled as I generally wear UD shadows and as a result I'm quite picky. The individual colors in an eye palette should also work well together.
Ideally there should be a mix of matte and shimmery colors (since matte colors are ideal for crease use). There should also be a good "blending" color that can be used to blend out darker shadows. In addition there should also be shades that can be used as a highlighter on the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes as well as general lid colors. The ideal palette should have all of these and be versatile, allowing you to create an unlimited number of looks.
Urban Decay Naked is my top pick for those with warmer skin tones while I think UD Naked 2 is best for cooler toned ladies. UD Basics is our best choice for those who only want matte shades. TF Natural At Night is a good pick if you want a mix of interesting neutrals (including olive-toned shades) while TF Natural Eyes contains a good mix of both cool and warm colors. Nars God Created Woman is recommended for those who want a compact palette while Smashbox Full Exposure (Travel Palette) is the ultimate compact palette (it's the size of my debit card) although the texture and pigmentation is the most chalkiest out of all of these palettes.
Three of my picks are Urban Decay eye shadows and the reason for that is because I have used all three and find them the best when it comes to neutral shadows. Below are our picks of the best neutral eyeshadow palettes for 2018.
