My goal became to wear a different shade of eyeshadow every day. Some days I would wear something tame, others it was peacock blue. I loved wearing the brighter colors because they brought back memories of going dancing with girlfriends or out to a fancy dinner with D.
Some of my favorites are:
- Neutrals: Urban Decay's Shag is a gorgeous tan-bronze. I'm South Asian and it really works well with my tan skin tone. It's not sparkly, but it is shiny. It stays all day when I use it with a primer. I also really enjoy Stila's Kitten. It's sparkly and seems to show differently on different skin tones.
- Brights: Urban Decay's Ransom is a vibrant purple. A close second for bright is Sephora Collection's My Favorite Jeans, which is a bright blue - not for the faint of heart!
- Smoky eye: I have two older Sephora brand shadows that I use. One is a dark matte gray while the other is a matte medium gray. Unfortunately I can't find links to them online, but they're pretty basic.
