Four of the Best: Eyeshadows
Published 30/09/2010 | 14:58
Nudes, olives, purples and blues are some of the key shadow colours for this season. This week we at Independent Woman have been raiding the autumn beauty collections in search of the most sought after eyeshadow shades.
Here are four of our favorites:
Chanel's Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Vert Khaki
Autumn make-up bags seeking something decidedly 'this season' yet reassuringly timeless will love Chanel's new Vert Khaki shadow. Highly pigmented, silky soft and coloured by way of a rather flattering deep olive, Vert Khaki also comes laced with flashes of gold shimmer. Apply dry for soft, subtle shading or damp for a richer more intense colour.
Available from Chanel counters, priced at €25
Glam 'Eyes Enchantment by Rimmel
Brown eyes seeking something by way of sparkly seduction may wish to take a good look at Rimmel's Glam 'Eyes Mono Eye Shadow in Enchantment.
Somewhere between dark blue and soft purple Enchantment shades perfectly and won't crease. Worn lightly for daytime or built for a darker evening look the colour is a gem.
Available from Rimmel Counters from October 1st, priced at €5.95
The Body Shops Eye Colour in Damson
Promising all the coverage without any of the powdery residue the Autumn Eye shadow collection from The Body Shop will please those of you looking to copy this seasons catwalk brights. Peacock greens, shell pinks and midnight blues all feature but our pick of the pack is the Violet tones of Damson. The light purple shadow has a creamy texture making blending a joy so colour can be as delicate or as deep as you desire.
Available from The Body Shop, Priced at €12.95
Estee Lauders Tempting Mocha
If you're more inclined towards neutral, muted colours then the delights of Estee Lauder's Tempting Mocha could bring a rather unwanted flush to cheeks. Part of the Pure Colour Collection created by Tom Pecheux, the cool shade gives lids a light shimmer and is perfect for creating natural daytime looks as well as being a great base for more vibrant shadows.
Available from Estee Lauder Counters, priced at €21.00
