When it comes to beauty basics, nude eyeshadows are the unsung hero of every makeup bag. No matter how much we love a colour pop, we always find ourselves reaching for the faithful neutral tones. From day to night looks, you simply can’t go wrong with creamy caramel shades, soft smoky browns, and subtle shimmers.
Makeup trends may come and go, but neutrals are here to stay. Unlike a foundation or concealer, nude shadows don’t have to match your skin tone perfectly. There is more freedom to play around with shades to suit your mood. Opt for autumnal oranges or keep it nice ‘n’ neutral with a subtle base.
