Think creating an eye look has to involve endless blending, powder fall-out and a huge palette of hues? Think again…
Then you’re in the right place. Just like finding your favourite pair of jeans, discovering your go-to everyday eyeshadow can take some serious trial and error. But luckily, we’re here to cut the confusion…
Not all eyeshadows are created equal. Our moisture-enriched, cream-based Eye2Eye shades are the ultimate eye enhancers. Rich in pigment, buildable and fuss-free, our creamy hues blend in mere moments, helping to make time-consuming eye looks and chalky powdered eyeshadows a distant memory.
If you’re prone to an eyeshadow accident or two (we’ve all been there), cream-based eyeshadows are much more forgiving than their powdered counterparts. “If you feel you’ve put too much on or you’ve placed your eyeshadow in the wrong place, cream eyeshadows are much easier to clean up than powered ones,” explains Katie, Pro Makeup Artist at Trinny London.
Cream eyeshadows are suitable for everyone, especially if you have dry skin. If you have oilier skin and find eyeshadow doesn’t tend to last long on your eyelids, fear not. Blend a little primer or Face Finish mattifying balm onto your eyelids before you apply your eyeshadow to help manage oiliness and keep your shadow in place.
Definitely not! “An eyeshadow with a sheen brightens eyes and helps to make them pop,” explains Katie. If sparkling shadows are out of your comfort zone or you’re feeling a little fearful of brighter, bolder shades, opt for a subtle colour such as a shimmering champagne hue or a gently sparkling pink.
If you want to add a little va-va-voom to a matte look, blend a small amount of a brighter shimmering shade into the inner corners of your eyes to bring your look to life.
Just like that favourite pair of jeans we mentioned earlier, your staple eyeshadow should enhance your look and make you feel great every time you wear it – here’s our favourite eye combinations…
“Golden hues and colours with tints of red and yellow, like orange, copper and warm brown tones, are perfect for emphasising blue eyes,” explains Katie. Eye2Eye in rich warm tones, such as Empress and Fortune, will help your blue eyes come to life.
“Any shades with red hues, like maroon or amethyst, coral-orange or pinky red will accentuate green eyes,” says Katie. Rose gold hues are also great as the slightly red undertone helps green eyes shimmer. Try Eye2Eye in Desire and Strength to make green eyes pop.
“Gold eye shades with brown eyes are a winning combination,” says Katie. “Brown eyes tend to have a natural sparkle, so gold eye shades, such as copper, rose gold and bronze, enhance their golden tones”. To accentuate your brown eyes, opt for warm tones such as Eye2Eye in Victory, Empress and Sun to create a fresh, uplifting eye look.
Golden or purple tones help make hazel eyes pop. Try Eye2Eye in Joy and Passion to create a softly smoky eye that will bring your whole look to life.
Neutral brown shades and peachy tones are great for grey eyes. Eye2Eye in Faith and Victory will create a sophisticated look that will make your eyes pop. For a touch of glamour, try Eyetallics in Aurora.

Now you’ve got your everyday eyeshadow colours sorted, it’s time to perfect the application. Applying a wash of our cream-based Eye2Eye shades couldn’t be easier, and you can use your fingertips or a brush. “If you want to get a precise, softly blended eyeshadow look, a brush will be your easiest tool,” explains Katie. Try the eyeshadow brush from our T-Kit or our Conceal/Eye Contour T-Brush. “If you’re applying eyeshadow with your fingers, soften the edges with your ring finger to create a soft, seamless blend.”
