5 Shades of Winter for Eyes

It’s hard to find a really awesome aqua eyeshadow, because aqua tends to be a lighter color–almost pastel–that they can be sheer and/or chalky (or just powdery). Sometimes they lean blue, other times they lean green.

  1. MAC Weathered — darkened, mtued stormy blue
  2. Buxom Husky — icy winter blue
  3. bareMinerals On the Rocks — iridescent blue-violet
  4. Maybelline Too Cool — cool, snowy white
  5. MAC Keep Your Cool — dirty, gray taupe

What eyeshadow reminds you of winter?

  1. I love that first shade, it’s one of my favorite blues!

    The shadow that reminds me of winter is Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre in Illusoire, because I got it in my Christmas stocking last year and I wore it all Christmas day and into the new year. I have MAC Keep Your Cool but I don’t think of it as “winter” though I do think of Gazette Grey and Hocus Pocus as winter night colours, maybe because of the sparkle in them.

    M.A.C Weathered is my only pro longwear eyeshadow, it’s really a beautiful shade, deep and highly flattering in winter.

    UD Frigid & NARS Vent GlacĂ© remind me of winter, as well as NARS Bellissima. I also tend to reach for my tarte Femme Fatale palette more in the Winter, but perhaps it’s my absolute favorite palette, and I can’t replace it…

    Although I never use it, Kat von D Metal Orchestra is another one that reminds me of Winter with all the blues & silvers.

  5. love those icy blues! They look so pretty with a nice chocolate brown.
