I'm a total dunce when it comes to eye shadow but I bought a Benefit tin at Christmas with 4 shades and an idiot proof guide as to where to slap them on and I've gotta say when I manage it it makes me look fairly swish.
I've just had an unexpected bit of cash given to me and been told to treat myself so I've been debating the Naked palettes but I can't decide what would suit me.
I'm fairly pale but not pink, blonde hair, lightish blue eyes. Can anyone recommend...?
1 is warmer and 2 is cooler, from what you say it sounds like out of those to then 2 might suit you better. They are good basic neutral palettes but there are loads of similar shades in other basic palettes too. Naked 3 is absolutely gorgeous, rose-gold tones, and much more unique than 1 or 2. And the smokey one is lovely and much more versatile with a few pops of colour but can equally do neutral everyday looks from it.
If you're starting out experimenting more with eyeshadow palettes and blending etc, if you want something neutral and something more interesting, I'd say perhaps one of the basics (1 or 2 depending on warm/cool tones) and then either 3 or smoked for some more adventurous things depending on whether you like pinky colours or darker colours..... sounds like either would be great for your colouring!
Is there a counter near you that you could go and have a play at?
