Natural smokey eye makeup

It's actually easy to create

The word 'smokey' may not be in your comfort zone when it comes to eyeshadows, but fear not— It's actually really easy to create. The most important tip is always, always blend. 

Here’s 4 new eyeshadow palettes you can try out this October 2019.

1. Natasha Denona Metropolis Eyeshadow Palette

Celebrate Natasha Denona 5th year anniversary with 28 new eyeshadow shades and a brand new formula— A hybrid cream pressed powder. The palette includes matte and glitter shades of various colours from bold green to chrome blue. As usual, Natasha Denona eyeshadow palettes are highly pigmented, even her Mini Bronze & Glow Face Palette provides a creamy soft HD finish.

2. Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VI Eyeshadow Palette Midnight Sun

Blitz Violet Orchid is a beautiful sparkling periwinkle violet shade.

Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette contains 10 richly pigmented shades, each shade providing smooth and blendable pigments on the eye.

Editor's Tip: Pat McGrath suggests to smudge shade 'Xtreme Dusk' along the upper and lower lash line.

3. Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette

Oh honey!

Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette is the newest addition to the Naked family, giving us 12 exclusive matte and metallic shades. Besides its cute packaging, this palette is so attractive for those who want a subtle look by using 'HBIC' on the eyelids while smudging a little 'Queen' and 'Sting' on the outer corner of the eyes.

Editor's Tip: Pair it with Urban Decay Honey Lip Plumper for a glittery lip gloss. It's vegan too, by the way.

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Eyeshadow Palette Vol. 1

The first volume of Norvina Pro Pigment Eyeshadow Palette has 25 professional pigments in oversized pans, perfect for those who like to experiment and 'play' with makeup. With a variety of shades, you can create any type of natural smokey eye look using this palette.

Editor's Tip: If you're feeling adventurous, you can try different kind of smokey eye looks using shades 'D2' or even 'D4'.
