Take a look at your eyeshadow collection. Whether you’re a makeup expert or just starting out, we bet your current stack consists of pans and palettes packed with browns, charcoals, and shimmery golds. While neutral eyeshadow makes sense for everyday wear, and can subtly add depth and dimension to your lids, sometimes you want to add a prismatic pop of color to your eye look. And for that, allow us to acquaint you with the magic of duochrome eyeshadows.
Duochrome eyeshadows are an easy way to add intrigue to your eyes without using multiple shadows. These shadows shift from one color to another adding a dimensional luminosity to your eyes. Often available in metallics and brights, these shadows can shift from pink to orange, purple to green, and more—and all you have to do is apply one swipe across your lids. With a plethora of formulas on the market, we reached out to NYC-based makeup artist Cat Mignano for a few of her pro-approved formulas and hues.
