36 Neutral Eyeshadow Look Ideas for June 2020

For some, putting on makeup is more functional, but for me, it’s more about playing, which is probably why my love for eyeshadow has endured for over 15 years now.  I love putting together color combinations, whether they’re “new” to me or old favorites with a twist.  It’s relaxing to create these color combinations, and it allows me to revisit some previously-reviewed products, which is, hopefully, helpful to readers who purchased them in the past!

I thought I’d start by sharing 36 more neutral-leaning color combinations, and I’ll follow-up with 36 more colorful ideas for anyone looking for some inspiration this June!  As always, these are ideas to inspire future makeup looks, so you don’t need the specific product(s) or palette; you can recreate using products you already own as well.

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

Beautiful mini palettes! Sydney Grace has a knack for getting me to hanker after tones I wouldn’t otherwise be drawn to. That Apricot shade is gorgeous.

Have you made up any 6-to-9 shade palettes just for fun? I’ve seen a couple of “curated palette” videos, where someone makes a spring palette or whatnot, and goes through a couple combinations possible with that. Those are fun!

These stunning quad selections are just perfect for our winter weather here. Thank you Christine. I am going to try Heart’s Full today. The Rhaspberry shade from my Burgundy Bar, Apricot from Soft and Smokey, I wouldn’t use a duochrome here – but probably Sandstorm. No mattes. Lovely!

Nice combos! I’ve noticed recently that I’m always drawn to combinations that put a pinky-brown right next to an olive-y or gold-y one, or a very greyed-down one right beside a brighter, saturated one. It’s a contrast within a set of neutral shades that I find quite eyecatching and exciting.
