What is the difference between eyeshadow and an eyeshadow palette?

Eyeshadow is typically a single shade, while an eyeshadow palette contains multiple shades of eyeshadows in one compact. Eyeshadow palettes are more convenient for creating different looks, while single eyeshadows allow you to customize your own palette. In addition, a makeup palette may include multi-use shades for eyes and face, such as the shades featured in our limited-edition Richelieu Wing Face & Eyeshadow Palette.

Our Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette is a great option for those who want a variety of eyeshadow shades to choose from. It comes in several different color families, so you can find the perfect shades for your makeup look and shades that match your skin tone and eye color.

For those who prefer to create their own custom eye shadow palette, our Color Design Single Eyeshadows are a great option. They come in a variety of long-lasting, vibrant shades so you can mix and match to create your own unique look.

How do you apply eyeshadow?

Eyeshadow can be applied using various tools such as brushes, sponges, or even fingers. Brushes offer more precision and control, allowing for different blending techniques. Sponges can provide a more natural, diffused look. Your fingers offer the most direct application and can be useful for smudging or blending out harsh lines. Ultimately, the choice of applicator depends on the eye shadow or makeup eyeshadow palettes being used, desired effect, and individual comfort level.

Which type of eyeshadow is best for mature eyes?

When it comes to eyeshadow for mature eyes, opting for a creamy eye shadow or eyeshadow with a shimmery finish are excellent choices. The shimmer finish helps to enhance and brighten the eyes, while a creamy, long-lasting formula ensures that your look stays in place all day. Set creamy eyeshadow with a powder to avoid transfer. We recommend Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in a shade like 207 Kitten Heel (Shimmer). Color Design Eyeshadow is crease-resistant eye shadow, densely packed with rich pigments for intense color payoff and is available in a wide range of shades and finishes.

Which eyeshadow colors look good on everyone?

There are eyeshadow colors that look universally flattering on everyone, and these are typically neutral colors like warm neutral shades, as featured in our Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in “Taupe Craze” and cool neutrals, like shades in “Nuances de Brun.” Cool neutral shades are perfect for those who want a more understated look. Neutrals tend to look great on all skin tones and can easily create an everyday makeup look, a special occasion look, or even a nighttime glam look.

For example, you can use neutral eyeshadow shades to create a classic smoky eye look. Apply shades from our Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in “Nude Sculptural” or “Bronze Absolu” and follow our step-by-step brown smokey eye tutorial to create your perfect neutral smoky eye.

What type of eyeshadows do makeup artists use?

Makeup artists use eyeshadow and makeup palettes that are highly pigmented, are long-lasting, and can travel well. They also prefer eye shadows that are easy to blend and apply. The most popular eyeshadow textures used are powder, cream, and liquid. Powder eyeshadows are the most commonly used and typically provide sheer to medium color intensity. Cream eyeshadows can provide a more intense color payoff and can also be used to create a base for powder eyeshadows. Liquid eyeshadows are typically multi-use for eye and face and provide more coverage, allowing for bold and creative makeup looks.

Which eyeshadow shades compliment my eyes?

To enhance the natural beauty of your eyes, consider your eye color when choosing eye shadow shades and makeup eyeshadow palettes. For example, Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in “Taupe Craze” brings out the vibrancy in brown eyes, Ombre Hypnôse Stylo Eyeshadow Stick in “Brun Captivant” makes green eyes pop and Color Design Eyeshadow in Kitten Heel intensifies blue eyes – just to name a few.

Our eye shadows are ophthalmologist tested to ensure they meet the highest safety standards and come in a variety of textures, shades, and finishes – from matte to shimmery – so you can find the perfect eyeshadows to easily create looks that complement your skin tone and eye color.
