Essential Neutral Eye Shadow Palettes


Quite a few brands are providing neutral eye shadow palettes for their customers. Today, it's all about convenience, yet value. If a few extras are thrown it, then that's a plus.

I'm all about bold colors, but every once in a while, I find that I just want something classic and simple. Classic in a sense that I want my makeup to look natural, yet simple enough to where I'll only need a few minutes to spare.

In makeup, I've realized that if you have a good neutral or natural palette, then you have your essentials. You can always build upon color -from green to purple and blue, or any color in the rainbow.

So I've put together a few palettes that I think are noteworthy.

Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known as Iggy Azalea, is one of the latest female emcees (rappers) to showcase her fierce talent.

Iggy Azalea was born in Sydney, Australia on June 7, 1990 and raised in Mullumbimby, (New South Wales) Australia. She began rapping at age 14.

Azalea released her first mixtape, entitled Ignorant Art in 2011, after uploading her freestyle videos on YouTube. She is better known for her songs "My World," "Treasure Island," and "PU$$Y" - which was her first official video.

On March 1, 2012, Iggy Azalea was signed by T.I to Grand Hustle Records. As of June 2012, the 5'10'' rapper was signed to Wilhelmina Models International, Inc.

I definitely admire her classic look, yet edgy style. Porsche Cooper, a New York-based Makeup Artist is responsible for her flawless looks. Her stylists include Andrew Mukamal and Alejandra Hernandez.
