My Favourite Matte Shadows

One of my lovely subscribers recently asked me to recommend some good matte shadows. I decided to dedicate a post to matte shadows since they are often left out.

Matte shadows are an integral part of your makeup collection. I like to incorporate a matte shade into each look as to many shimmery, sheeny shadows can look a bit much together.

My favourites are:

  • MAC Embark; Intense reddish brown
  • MAC Wedge; Soft muted golden beige
  • MAC Swiss Chocolate; Mutted reddish brown
  • MAC Omega ; Soft Muted beige taupe
  • MAC Charcoal Brown; Mutted taupe brown

Here are some neutral palettes that I have in my collection and are well loved.

  • Face 2 Neutral Palette (www.face2.ie) Professional quality. They are amongst the most pigmented shadows I have ever tried.
  • Coastal Scents Neutral Palette is also fantastic (cheaper alternative to the Face 2 palette, not the same quality but still good)

I also really like Revlon Matte shadows, they are great quality!

    I prefer frosty shadows but if it comes to matte, my winner is Yoghurt. It’s so subtle, hardly seen, but beautiful:)

    I’m on a matte shadow kick right now as well. I picked up some mattes in the two new MAC collections – Warm & Cozy and All Races that are good so I’m pleased. I really want to get Omega as well though.
