Weekly Must-Have: Kevyn Aucoin Essentially Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Another palette that no true makeup lover should be forced to live without: Kevyn Aucoin Essentially Matte Eyeshadow Palette is the best of fall’s earthy shades – from soft nude to deep granite, all with a matte finish. This is the first entirely matte palette from the brand and is inspired by “legendary, innovative techniques that transformed the faces of supermodels, celebrities and women everywhere.” The Kevyn Aucoin team released this palette – featuring all new shades – to highlight, contour, and define eyes. The five colors are classic and universal hues that can create a multitude of looks and dimensions, from a simple pale lid to a dark and moody smokey eye. The deepest shade is a brown/black that works perfectly as a liner above or below the lash line.

Here’s a great application tip: When choosing between matte or shimmer, look to your skin (are you going matte or dewy?), then use the opposite finish with eyes and lips. According to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s makeup artist Erik Soto, the twins like dewy skin, smudged, shimmer-free eyes, and matte lips.

Try it! The varying finishes lend to a beautifully multidimensional face.
