Best Eyeshadow Transition Shades for Mature Women
When you use an eyeshadow as a transition shade between your eye's crease and the browbone, it can make your eyes look larger and prettier. The key is to find several transition shades that work well for you. Many people use and recommend colors for that area of the eye that are too dark or too much shimmer for a mature woman's eyes. I can't pull off those colors any longer! I'll show you in this video which eyeshadow transition shades that are in popular palettes and are the best to use for women over 50.
Scroll down for links to each product mentioned and for what I’m wearing in the photos.
A nice palette for travel is the LORAC Pro Matte Eyeshadow palette. There are two nice lighter shades for transition colors.
The Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics has three terrific shades for the transition area. I even combine two colors on the brush to get a different look.
Too Faced Chocolate Bar has two shades that I can use as transition shades that are brown (thus, the “chocolate”!).
A palette that doesn’t get enough love is Cargo’s “The Essentials” Eye Shadow Palette. This one has really good taupe shades in it and I’ve reached pan on them. They’re easy to blend and don’t have much fallout.
LORAC’s Pro Palette 3 has a top row of all matte shades. This one has two colors that I can use as transition shades.
For a good drugstore option, Physician’s Formula Matte Collection Quad eyeshadow in “Canyon Classics” has a good beige that leans toward taupe. It doesn’t pull orange at all. This one is a great buy, is easy to blend, and the other colors in this quad are nice, too.
The shades I’m wearing in the photos are from Urban Decay’s Basics Naked 2 palette. This is also a great palette for traveling due to how slender it is. There are three shades in this one that I can use alone or mix with one another on the brush.
