I’ve always been drawn to the shimmery eyeshadows over the matte– maybe because they look so much prettier in the compact?! But to be honest, a shimmery or glittery eyeshadow that covers the entire eyelid and brow area can be overwhelming, especially if you have oily skin. Too much shine!
Save the shimmer for the inner eye area only, and use a matte eyeshadow for the rest. I’ve always felt that a nude shadow or a shadow a few shades darker than your skin tone is best. White or pearl eyeshadows look unflattering and clown-like to me.
