Bye-bye sunset orange.
See you later radiant reds.
Have a nice life pretty pinks.
There's a cool kid in town and they're getting ready to rule (or in some cases have been ruling on the down low for quite some time...).
Okay, that's all a bit dramatic, but it's true enough to say that in the land of beauty trends come and go, and we're seeing the trend for warmer toned eyeshadow palettes slowing down as finally, after a long time in the cold, the spotlight is being shone on cooler toned eyeshadows.
So what's out there? What's hot... er, cool... er, ykwim...
Check these pretties out!
Wanting to delve into cool tones without blowing your budget? Maybelline's The Rock Nudes is a great place to start! This palette can create simple daytime to full on smoked-out night time glam looks in a flash!
The name literally says it all. 15 cool neutral shadows that will take you from day to night with ease. Perfect for the fuss-free gal!
(Dear NZ dollar, please don't drop anymore, because I need this in my life.) Now that I've said my prayers to the money and beauty gods... Anastasia Beverly Hills continues to add cool tones into their recent palettes (that Norvina palette... stunning) with the release of Sultry. Consider us sold.
From Sultry to seductress. Rimmels Magnif'eyes Smoke Edition is a sexy wee beastie featuring a range of cool tones to create come hither eyes. (What you're come hithering at is up to you... personally I'll be come hithing at some of the latest cosmetic holiday releases...)
Ain't nothin' basic about this wee gem. Well-loved by those who've tried it, it features six simple, yet stunning, shades that will help you create gorgeous natural looks.
If you're a fan of all things luxe and are wanting to dip your toe into cool tones, then this Bobbi Brown palette may well be for you! Clearly the highlighter blinging out this palette is not of the cool tone fam, but those darker eyeshadows? Definitely. As for that packaging? Saaaawoooooooooonn.
Cool. Mattes. No shimmer. No shine. Just simple, sophisticated, blendable, beautiful shadows. Is Viseart on the pricey side? Yes. Worth the investment? Absolutely.
