Best Nude/Neutral Eye Shadows For Desi Skin

Nude eye shadows for desi skin

You know the rage with makeup that doesn’t look made up ?

We’ve got Nude lippies and neutral shadows to thank for that. Pop stars and celebrities are often known to sport the sultry smokey eye, the hot cousin of the simple winged eye look.

The last few years in fashion have all been about either going all out with color or keeping it strictly subtle. The thing is, good makeup requires balance. It needs the coming together of complementary hues, tones and colors to contribute to the final look. And that’s exactly where neutral eye shadows come in.
Picture this : You want to wear that perfect bright lipstick but can’t find the right shadow to balance out your eye look to complement your lip, or you’re headed to work or a day thing and simply need a softer , earthy shadow that still stays in line with the rest of your makeup – Say hello to The Nude Eyeshadow, your best friend for all the above situations.
Being South- Asian, most brands make colors that are either too bright on, or don’t show up at all on us. Take a look at our pick for the best neutral tone eyeshadow palettes, specially selected for desi skin.
Note – We won’t mention the Naked palette here because enough has been said about this amazing palette already, let’s take a look at some lesser known good nude palettes that also serve as dupes for some of the colors on the naked palette.

The Balm Nude ‘tude Eyeshadow Palette –


Packaging – Beautiful !

Product – The palette comes with a range of neutral shades from brazen bronzers to highlighters to softer browns and nudes. All the colors can be used to create some extremely pretty looks both for the day and night.

The packaging comes in two variations – Naughty and nice

Shades range from light champagne to dark black. Sassy and Standoffish can be used as highlighters and well while snobby and sultry make great bases.

NYX Nude on Nude Palette:


Packaging – Sensible (comes with lip colors included)

Another great palette for beginners, this palette has 20 shades to choose from.
The palette also has 10 lip colors that you can choose to use or ditch.

The colors come in three different kinds of finishes – matte, metallic and shimmer. The shadows have been claimed to be intensely pigmented with great color payoff.

Some colors in the palette may work better for paler complexions but the browns will show well on deeper tones as well.

The brushes that come with the box are pretty useless though.

Coastal Scents Revealed & Revealed 2 Palette –


Packaging – This palette is very functional and extremely suitable for travel as well.

The Coastal scents revealed palettes are a favorite with bloggers because of the vast variety of looks one can create with them – both smoky and neutral looks.

psst… The revealed 2 palette is also rumored to be an exact dupe of the Naked 3 palette.

The palettes contain a basic black eyeshadow (doesn’t everyone need one of these?) , a few champagne shades, plum shades, earth colors and very desi-ish tones.

The palette is extremely versatile and works well for the perfect nude/neutral look.
