Top 10 Favorite Nude Eye Shadows

Posted 5 years ago - by: Kate Faulhaber

Hey ladies and gents! Today I thought I would try to mix things up with something else besides a makeup tutorial or a lipstick recommendation. I know many of you (including myself) LOVE neutral eye shadows. (This list will consist of creams, browns, taupes, and one black eye shadow!) They’re a staple in your makeup collection and flatter every eye color and skin tone. I decided that today’s post should be about nude eye shadows, my top 10 favorites, and some swatches! I hope you enjoy! If you ever want to make a request to what I talk about on I Live For Lipsticks, let me know! The easiest way to do this would be to write a comment on Facebook where I post links to these. Thanks so much to all of you for reading and let’s get on with the show!

Top 10 Favorite Nude Eye Shadows1

1. Urban Decay Sin- Described as a shimmery champagne. There’s a VERY slight bit of pink to it as well. The texture is really soft and applies smoothy to your eye. I love wearing this color all over my lid or as a cheek highlight.

2. Urban Decay Naked- This is a matte medium brown color with a beige tinge. This is my all time favorite eye shadow to use as a transition color in the crease.

3. Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear- This color is a red toned medium/dark brown with a matte finish. This has an amazingly soft texture and blends beautifully. I like to wear this color in the crease or on my lower lash line to smoke out a brown eyeliner.

4. Kat Von D South- A matte beige that’s perfect for a subtle brow bone highlight. I’m not sure if this is limited edition or not, but you can find a bazillion dupes for this color. So no worries :-)

5. Makeup Geek Corrupt- The deepest black eye shadow I own. It’s mostly matte but I did see a little bit of sparkle. But the sparkle doesn’t appear to transfer when I apply it and it doesn’t fall onto my cheeks. I like using this in the outer corner of my eye to deepen an eye look or as a softer eyeliner.

6. MAC Satin Taupe- This is one of MAC’s best sellers, and there is a damn good reason why! This is a brownish taupe with a silver/purple sheen through it. It has an extremely smooth texture and looks beautiful all over the lid for a smokey eye.

7. Urban Decay Sellout- This was one of six eye shadows in the Fun palette but I think it’s also available as a single shadow. It’s a true champagne color with shimmer. Another beautiful shadow for all over the lid and I love it in the inner corner of the eye to brighten up your eyes.

8. Urban Decay Stray Dog- Another shadow from the Fun palette, this is a shimmery mushroom brown with the slightest bit of warm tones through it. It has a beautiful soft texture, but it can have a little fallout because of how soft it is. I like to pair this with Sellout with Sellout on the inner half of the lid and Stray Dog on the outer half for a really easy day time look.

9. NYX Innocent- This shadow is only $4.50 but it is AMAZING! It’s a shimmery beige with a peachy pink tone. Beautiful for all over the lid especially on women with medium to dark skin.

10. Maybelline Color Tattoo Inked In Pink- I had to include my favorite waterproof cream shadow. I basically live in this color all summer long. It’s a light neutral pink with shimmer. It applies smoothly and evenly and lasts all day through heat, water, and even some makeup remover!
