When it comes to skin care, finding the right skin care formula is important to make sure that your skin care routine will indeed work wonders. But when it comes to makeup, finding the perfect colors that will suit your skin tone is just as important as finding the makeup products that will sit well with your skin type.

Shopping for different eye shadow colors is no doubt fun—from basic taupe to bold purples and even sparkly glitters, you name it! But let's face it, you don't really use the tons of shades of eye shadow colors in your makeup kits, don't you? That's why to make sure that you're spending your allowance only on the beauty products you will actually use, we're listing down the only eye shadow colors you need to nab extra brownie points for a strong beauty game.


Just like black eye shadows, brown shadows are classic and bold—in a much softer way. Play up your eyes and choose a rich brown hue to make your eyes pop without breaking a sweat.



One common misconception about metallic eye shadows is that these bold pots are perfect only for a night out. We say, metallic eye shadows are just as versatile as your taupe, browns, and blacks and can be worn from day to night with a breeze, too! Choose a muted, warm gold hue for a wearable metallic shadow option.


Take your plum beauty game up a notch and add a good amount of plum color to your eye lids, too! It's trendy and it's bold. What's not to love?

If you're looking to add a dose of edge to your beauty game, skip the usual black smokey eye and opt for a cool gray version instead!


We get it, red eye shadow can be a little intimidating to rock. But we say, with the right shade of red, you can score a beauty look that's bold and wearable at the same time. Choose a light red eye shadow for a subtle take on this edgy trend.
