Matte shadows are a must-have for any and every beauty lover. Whether you’re looking to create a traditional smoky eye or you are building a glittery eye shadow look, matte shadows are the foundation to many of your favorite beauty looks. Even though matte shadows are not new, they have recently had a major resurgence within the beauty industry as many of today’s beauty gurus rave about the importance of having matte shadows in your collection. In order to capitalize on the trend, many beauty brands are putting out specialized matte palettes.
theBalm’s Meet Matte Palette is a perfect example of this trend. Filled with nine matte shadows in wearable and buildable shades, you will fall in love with this gorgeous palette. Each shade works well on its own and can be paired with the other eight shades or with your favorite shimmery/glittery shades as well. I also love how cute the concept is with all of the shadows bearing a Matt name of a different ethnicity i.e Matt Horowitz and Matt Ramirez. Super cute and a great stocking stuffer for that friend who has everything but needs to up the ante in the beauty department!
