The Favorite Eye Shadow Shades of Makeup Artists: Emma White

favorite shadow combos of makeup artists

I love using MAC’s Vanilla as a full base color with multiple combinations like two of Urban Decay colors Snatch blended softly into MAC Vanilla, with heavy liner, paired with a dramatic lash and Carbon Black Mascara. I also enjoy the look using MAC Vanilla as the base coat then on the inner lid and lash line use the light metallic pink from Two-Faced’s Thief of Hearts duo, on the middle of the lid and outer lid use the burgundy plum color then to finish use MAC Carbon on the outer crease and blend into outer lash line with black liner on the water line.

Dior Nude Luminescence, Dior Brown Fever, Urban Decay Naked 2 (I love using the Naked 2 palette often; there are countless combinations I use from it!), and MAC Vanilla are all colors that I use frequently for highlighting or contouring.

    Thanks for sharing! I like that the eye shadow colors you've chosen are mostly neutral colors which makes them so versatile. You can do so much with them to create either a dramatic statement or a more natural look.

    I like these shades of eyeshadow and the combinations. Very nice, very chic, and can be dressed up or down.

    -I also love eye shadow, like these. I use to use instant-apply eye shadows because it makes me look like my own makeup artists. However, I imagined what it feels like to learn how to apply makeup without creasing – it must be so amazing, right?
