Eye shadow powder eye – Mats or pearly, which to choose?

Velvet, satin, pearl, pearl finishes … makeup powder eye are varied and it is easy to get lost in the myriad of options available on the market. It is therefore essential to know the ones that suit you best to maximize your makeup.


Pearlescent finish: Contains pigments that will reflect light

Matte finish: Does not contain light-reflecting pigments

Velvet finish: Contains some pigments light diffusers

Satin Finish: It is located between the eye and the eye pearly velvet

Metal Finish: More intense than pearly makeup!


Obviously, it is possible, no matter your age or look, to bring all these finishes, but it all depends on how to use them.


In general, the higher your eyelid is mature, the less it is suggested to opt for pearl blush (or metal) since reflecting light, they also highlight the imperfections including fine lines and wrinkles. The makeup matte or velvet are preferred.


If you have some signs of wisdom but you love makeup pearl, I recommend you use the key light in the center of the eyelid (do not type outside to the inner corner too), combined with makeup matte and velvet.


Sheens are flattering on almost all types of eyes, because they give a more sophisticated look, but can give a finished look pearly light that awakens the look.


You still hesitate. The best solution, combining different finishes!

The pearly or satin blushes will brighten the eyelid, the brow or inner corner of the eye.

Velvet matte eye shadow or be used to create shadows and structure (hollow under the eyebrow, contour or outer corner of the eye).


The ultimate look almost universal:

Apply a satin beige eyeshadow under the eyebrow. Come then fill the eyelid of an eye pearly peach or pink, then highlight the hollow under the brow of a taupe blush or matte velvet. It finally ends with a dark gray matte eyeshadow that affix to the outer corner of the eye. Success guaranteed!
