5 Shimmery Eyeshadows That’ll Make Your Eyes Sparkle
Even though I typically keep my look very natural by applying the bare minimum of makeup, I go crazy over a pretty, shimmery eye shadow! I always choose neutral shades in the taupe/bronze-family because I feel like you can wear them day or night, but all of my favorites featured below have a wide color range to choose from.
$32 USD / $36 CAD
This shimmery water-infused shadow is hands-down one of my favorites! It’s enriched with vitamin E so the liquid-cream texture applies so smoothly and it truly is crease-free! “Marie Antoinette” is my favorite shade –it’s a beautiful oyster-taupe color with an underlying bronzey-gold shimmer.
$46 USD / $58 cad
I am so obsessed with all Tom Ford makeup, but this gorgeous eyeshadow in “Platinum” might be my favorite! I love the creamy and blendable texture as well as the gorgeous taupe color and golden shimmer! It has the perfect amount of pigmentation and provides long-lasting shimmer without creasing or smudging. Compared to “Marie Antoinette”, this has a little bit more of a golden sheen (vs. bronze) which I prefer.
Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter EyeShadow
$29 USD / $38 CAD
Because everyone needs some sparkle in their life! This micro-glitter eye shadow is infused with light-reflecting pearls that add incredible radiance. The lightweight and blendable formulation also makes it very versatile; you can use a small amount for just a hint of shimmer or layer it on for the perfect sparkle! My favorite shade is “ Smoke” – a beautiful taupe color with a silver shimmer. The container is small but the tiniest amount goes a very long way!
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Shadow
$29 USD / $35 CAD
If you looked at my makeup collection you would easily be able to tell that Laura Mercier is one of my absolute favorite brands, and her caviar shadow sticks are to die for! The stick design makes these creamy shadows super easy to apply and the formulation is crease-resistant. I have these shadow sticks in several shades but my favorite by far is “Moonlight”, a beautiful champagne-beige color with a metallic-silver shimmer.
Bare Minerals Loose Mineral Eyecolor
$15 USD / $28 CAD
Last but not least, my favorite powder eye shadow! This is the very first eye shadow that I ever used and I immediately fell in love with it! I have about 15 different shades, but “Celestine” is my absolute favorite. Surprise surprise, it’s a shimmery taupe with the perfect silvery-metallic finish. I love the versatility of this shadow- you can apply it as a powder for a lighter look, or dip an eye shadow brush in water to turn it into a beautiful cream. AND the price-point on this shadow is SO fabulous!
