Top 3 MATTE Eyeshadow palettes ⎟Great for Hooded Eyes

Matte Eyeshadow palette great for Hooded Eyes

Eyeshadow palettes!!! What a beautiful invention. I love having those super sultry shimmery eyeshadows and heck! I’m all about glitters 365 days per year …. Awwwwww! I wish!!!! But with my damned hooded eyes, I can’t let myself go crazy! How ironic that a girl who loves shadows so much has to miss out on a lot of looks because of the genetic shape of her eyes? 😪 Well, thankfully for you, my hooded eyes girlfriends, the matte look is super trendy right now, so let’s rock our matte eyeshadows. Here are my top 3 matte eyeshadow palettes that are perfect for beginners and  flawless for the pros out there (+2 affordable options).

1

Becca Ombre Rouge

Becca Ombre Rouge

Such a beautiful day to day palette that makes redishhhh/pinkisssh shades, so ideal for fall and why not, all year long. The five colors included go so well together & the formula is ridiculously exquisite. Becca also makes an Ombre Nudes that is more on the Nude side (*I’m so funny*) that is also to consider. Why is this palette not more hyped is beyond me. (You can read my full review HERE)

Tarte Tartelette

If you haven’t already heard the merit of this palette, heu! maybe you were hiding under a rock somewhere, or unfortunately fell into a profound coma for awhile :). Seriously, this “Tartelette” deserves all the praise and more. It’s such a well formulated and well color coordinated ensemble. This beauty will never be obsolete! Years from now, this one will still be as trendy. Daytime to nighttime, no problem, this little number has it all. (You can read my full review HERE)

Stila In The Know

This was my first totally matte eyeshadow palette and to this day still one of my favourite. In Canada, I see it often at less than 20$ at Winners.

Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Neutral 02

At Target for less than 20$, this palette stands out and is tantamount to a lot of higher brands. If you never tried Sonia Kashuk eyeshadows, you are missing out… They are great.

Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Neutral 02

Note: It’s my personal opinion, but drugstores’ eyeshadows, with the exception of NYX singles & Sonia Kashuk, are not sure bets, especially the mattes. If you want real quality, it’s well worth spending a little more $$$.

Thanks a lot for stopping by my beauties

Truth be told, I’ve been so blessed in my life, being born with beautiful big green eyes so … winged eyeliner, sophisticated shimmery eye makeups, and smokey eyes looks dreamy on me !!! ⏰ OK! Ingrid wake up and stop dreaming !!! The fact is that I sadly have hooded eyes, that makes playing with eyeshadows more difficult … BUT not impossible!

Recently I found a YouTuber name Stephanie Lange who has hooded eyes and guys, she creates the best tutorials ever … I’ve learned so much; she has singularly made me apply my eye makeup so differently and that, with just small changes! I’ve been so hooked that I’ve watched at least 25 of her tutorials in the last 2 weeks with so much joy. (giggle)

So, if you do have hooded eyes, droopy eyes or aging eyes, her EASY tutorials using products that most of us already have dupes for, will change the way you do smokey eyes for example! I’ve recreated a few looks and WOW, the possibilities, even for my eye shape, are almost endless now …

So, thank you so much Jessica for being really genuine, down to earth, the hooded eyes queen and mostly, to have teach me that just different shades and technics does make a world of differences! 💗💖💗

I hope you find it as helpful as I did !!!

Love u guys !
