I’d like to share with you my favorite eye shadows, I created my own neutral palette from my Raffael cosmetics eye shadows. YES! They’re all from Raffael Cosmetics. I love them because they have a velvety texture, very pigmented and smooth consistency. I never had issue with applying layers of color to create dark effects and never had that chalky finish like some other brands do.
So here are MY favorite neutrals that I carry all the time with me.
Starting from 1st top left going down:
#475 : matte peachy perfect for base or blending for light to medium skin tones.
#80: matte light brown with a HINT of yellow undertone, good for medium base or blending.
#519: (called Perfection for a reason and my personal favorite) very shimmery medium beige with a pink undertone. Very nice as a base or for inner corner.
Top 2nd, going down again:
#255: matte brown, peach undertone. Good for a neutral smokey in the outer corner or for blending in the crease for medium to dark skin tones.
#403: satin finish, light beige with a pink undertone to it. Great color for a base or inner corner even for highlighting the brow bone.
#50: highlighter slightly satin, very neutral. Ideally for light to medium skin tones.
3rd row going down:
#419: matte brown, peach undertone. Great for light to medium skin tones for either blending the crease or as a medium base color.
#417: matte brown-pink. Medium base or a lighter smokey effect in the outer corner.
#133-A: matte charcoal-brown, pink undertone. Perfect for a neutral smokey in the outer corner.
4rth row, going down:
#466: matte medium brown with a hint of purple, goes well with hazel eyes. Great for the outer corner.
#121: matte charcoal. Perfect medium base for a dark smokey eye.
#489: shimmery cranberry, nice base for green and blue eyes even brown.
5th rown going down:
#49: matte, medium cranberry perfect to blend or as a base. Compliments green and hazel eyes and gives a different smokey eye effect that makes it much more interesting than just brown.
#494: matte golden brown. I usually fill in brows with this color for dark blond hair. Good for blending and as a medium base color.
#108: matte, dark brown with a purple hint to it. Great to fill in eye brows for red heads and makes a fun neutral smokey eye when used in the outer corner.
Last 2 on the right:
#464: perfect matte pure black, so pigmented don’t need much color build-up to get that perfect result.
#85: matte light highlighter for light to medium skin tones. Perfect for under the brow and the inner corner
This is my idea of best neutrals from all the colors I’ve worked with. I don’t only work with Raffael cosmetics but the colors are just great. I love these eye shadows.
Not only is the quality amazing, they’re from Canada and they’re very affordable.
