Matte Eyeshadow & Eye Pencil to highlight inner corners of the Eye

[ Edited ]
(0) Hearts

Hello!

 

My complexion is fair to medium with neutral to yellow undertones. I use the Hourglass Immaculate Foundation (Shell).

 

Please recommend a matte eye shadow to highlight the inner corners of the eyes. My issue is that some eye shadows look too white/powdery, some look too pinky, and some look too yellow. I am finding it hard to get the perfect shade. I was also wondering if the Urban Decay Eden Primer might serve this purpose.

 

I am also looking for an eyeliner to line the inner corners and make the eyes look defined. Again, white is looking too artificial and I don't want to use yellow or silver.

 

I am an Urban Decay fan, so I would love suggestions from their line or eye shadows and pencils. I also like the Sephora Collection.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the wonderful tips!!! I am going to check out Foxy from Urban Decay and Call My Buff from Benefits.

I'm a fan of Urban Decay "Foxy" eyeshadow for the inner corner and for a brow bone highlight. It's matte and has a slight yellow undertone but not overpowering. You can find it in the Naked2 palette or you can buy it on its own. Hope that helps :smileyhappy:

Another vote for Tarte, if that's too skinny/tip too tiny for you, try Stila Kajal liner in Topaz, which is what I have and I'm loving it.

 

I'm not quite sure what kind of shadow you are looking for (almost sounds like you are looking for a concealer/foundation), but you might be interested in checking out some shades in Naked Basics, or use a concealer/highlighter like YSL touche eclat?

Good call Beautylovingirl!  I love that Tarte EmphasEYES™ Inner Rim Brightener.  It is a very natural shade that brightens without looking white.

For the eyshadow, I think something like Benefit Longwear Powder Shadow Call My Buff would work well for your coloring if you want to keep it subtle.

I don't think that the eden primer is going to do what you want.  I'm using up a tube right now and it matches my light complexion pretty well.  It wouldn't highlight my eyes at all.  And if you're wearing other shadow I think you'd have a very hard time getting it where you want. 

 

I'm not sure what shadow to recommend; I have some that I like but they're in palettes, and I can't seem to find them sold individually.

Tarte  has an inside brightening pencil that would be perfect for what you are wanting.

Rimmel makes a great dupe for it as well (I had a hard time justifying $19 for an eye pencil that is nude so I picked this up and it does the trick).  Rimmel Scandaleyes waterprood pencil in #005 Nude. You can get it for like $4 at Walmart :smileyhappy:
