The Inherent Nature of A Neutral Color Palette

The eyeshadow palette that enhances the beauty that already exists.

“Make-up is meant to enhance your beauty, not make you look different.” These words are from my mother, and they have stayed with me. Neutral colors are a great way to enhance our beauty. Warm neutral colors, like all colors, have a way of visually communicating with us. Mented Cosmetics “Everyday EyeShadow Palette” is a palette filled with warm neutral colors that communicate elegance, softness, and grace. This palette gives me Claire Huxtable (poise), smooth jazz (polished), majestic (sophisticated strength) vibes.

The range of lighter to deeper shades helps to create gradual shading that blends effortlessly, and emphasizes the eyes in a subtle way. The colors used in these photos are: Queen Sugar (above crease), First Date (inner and middle lid), Second Date (outer lid), and Brown Out (outer crease). 

 

The neutral colors in this palette are harmonizing. When thinking about your overall make-up look, neutral colors can

be a way to create emphasis for another color elsewhere on your face, like a bold lip. The low saturation of neutral colors makes it the perfect canvas to build on when we’re making fashion choices. These colors can also act as a unifier for bolder colors. Another way to go would be a minimal look, keeping with similar tones throughout the face. If you choose to go the minimal route, it's a good idea to use a variety of neutral shades to add depth to avoid a bland incomplete look.
