Favourite matte shades


Hey everyone!

So the series has almost come to an end. Last week I rounded up my favourite shimmery shades, to round it all up, next week will be my favourite glittery shades, but today will be about my favourite mattes.

1 & 2   /   3 & 4   /   5   /   6   /    7 &8

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette - Foxy & Tease
These matte shades are so beautiful! Tease is a lovely smokey all over the lid shade, while Foxy is a good powder for setting my under eye concealer. The yellow tone is perfect for brightening the area.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette - Salted Caramel & Triple Fudge
The lovely terracotta orange-browny colour on the left (marked with X) is Salted Caramel. It's such a lovely transition shade and it really warms up the eyes immediately. The dark brown colour in the right upper corner (marked with X) is Triple Fudge, a gorgeous shade for smokey eye looks and lining the eyes.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather Effect - Creamy Beige
I think I have raved about this one a lot already, so not much explanation is needed. I dig this product, period.

Rimmel Kate eyeshadow stick - Pure Turquoise
This is a very bright one in between all these rather neutral colours, but nevertheless it's a gorgeous matte turquoise shade. When I'm feeling adventurous I pop it all over my lids, but sometimes I just use it on my waterline to add some colour to a neutral look (usually combined with a black eyeliner).

Mac eyeshadows - Coral & Rule
I'm so happy with these two purchases! I created a spring/summer make up look with these ones a while ago, and they look amazing! The coral pink shade combines great with the orange shade and they complement each other so well. 

What are your favourite matte eyeshadows? Let me know down in the comments, I'm always on the look out for mattes!

Lots of love,
