So, I have this thing for nude eyeshadows. Maybe you can relate. Every time I see a new, gorgeous, neutral (maybe it’s brown, maybe it’s taupe, maybe it’s even a little rusty or has a hint of purple or dark red wine to it– doesn’t matter!) “nude” toned shadow, I pretty much have to have it. And if it’s amatte neutral eyeshadow? Forget about it, there’s no turning back now! (Ha!) Why do we love these pretty little neutral shadows so?
Apart from being completely gorgeous (come on, who could say no to those velvety-matte-neutral pretties?!) they always pull their own weight– and then some– when it comes to the sheer amount of times you find yourself reaching for them day in and day out. They go with just about everything. Every look, every mood, every outfit. They’re easy to wear, and easy to apply. They look amazing even all on their own– no crease color or complicated multi-part eyeshadow look necessary to compliment their easy, effortless, chic-ness. There’s a reason everyone loves a good neutral eyeshadow (or four!).
So… all that said, you can understand just howexcited I am to tell you about these new matte neutrals we are adding to the Simple Beauty Minerals lineup! They are seriously gorgeous, and truly do justice to the matte neutral eye looks of your dreams. In fact, we all loved them so much here at Simple Beauty Minerals that we all ended up wearing them in the our photo shoot last month!
As you can see, they truly do complement so many different looks and skin tones– Lisa, Taru, Kasey, and I all wore Port as one of the eyeshadow colors in our different looks and it turned out so beautifully in each different look on each of our very different colorings. I mean, it’s basically the eyeshadow version of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (but even more versatile than a pair of jeans, at that!)
Taru wears Port as her crease color in this look which adds the perfect amount of sophistication with just a dash of drama to the beautiful purple medley
Something else I know you are going to absolutely love about these new matte eyeshadows? I didn’t fully realize this until I was swatching them on my arm for the photos, but they are incredibly smooth, like velvet– except even softer. As I was using my finger to smudge them across my forearm I was really surprised by just how soft and silky they felt! It’s no wonder that they feel so soft and light during actual makeup application when they start out so soft right out of the jar! We can’t wait for you to try these new matte eyeshadows and fall in love with their gorgeous neutral shades as much as we have here at Simple Beauty Minerals!
