Admit it, beauty junkies, you've spent a lot on makeup palettes for just one or two shades. You promise yourself to use every single hue in the panfrom sultry shades to pretty shimmers. You say you'll hit the town in smokey eyes and go to brunches wearing monochrome makeup, but often you find yourself using just a couple of shades in your palette. So to get your money's worth from your favorite palettes, we've created a guide! As an example, we used the Sigma Beauty eyeshadow palette in Warm Neutrals (P2119, Sephora.ph.) Scroll down and let's get started!

WHITE

Don't be afraid to use the lightest shades. They are included in the pan for a reason. You don't have to wear them on their own. In fact, they are best used if mixed with other hues. Use them as an eyeshadow base to build a bolder eye color. They are also made to diffuse deep colors to create half a shade lighter.

NEUTRAL SHIMMER

The frosty or lustrous shades can be used to highlight the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid's bow. For fair-skinned girls, you can use the lightest shade, for morenas, champagnes and golds will work best for your skin tone.

BROWNS, GRAYS, BLACK

Depending on your hair color, you can use the darker neutral shades to fill in your sparse brows. If your hair is on the darker side, it's best to dab on neutrals with a cooler undertone like ash brown, taupe, and gray. Opt for warmer browns if you have lighter hair.

PINKS, REDS, ORANGE

Pinks, reds, and oranges can function as blushers. The deeper reds can even be used to contour or bronze your face if you want a more subtle finish.
