5 Best Single Eyeshadows for Everyday

First world problem #1: There are times I bring a bag that is too small to fit a full makeup bag. I also don’t like carrying bulky eyeshadow palettes on days I just want to pull off that no-makeup makeup look.

To fix this first world problem, I decided to buy single eyeshadows instead and bring maybe one or two with me for those days. I found that they’re super handy and one pot can last you months. They’re also good choices for beginners! Here are 5 eyeshadows you can definitely use everyday:

Suesh – CP Eyeshadow E13 – P95.00

Red eyeshadow can be intimidating at first, but it’s a great shade for those days you want to add warmth and a pop of color on your eyes. You can use a light hand to feather it out from the outer corners for that red to pink gradient, or you can use the shadow to line your cat eye.

Etude House – Look at My Eyes BR422 – P228.00

This subtle tan color with a warm undertone is perfect for defining your crease and outer corners, but not as overwhelmingly as using a deep brown.

The Face Shop – Single Eyeshadow BR02

Deep browns are great for everyday because you can use them for almost everything – all over the lid, defining the crease, deepening the outer corners, lining the eyes. A deep brown eyeshadow is a staple for every makeup lover.

I personally prefer this color over a matte black because less harsh, and leaves a more natural no-makeup look.

Maybelline – Color Tattoo Barely Branded – P299.00

This cream eyeshadow pot is super pigmented and lasts a long time on your lids even without primer. Barely Branded is a nice metallic beige that is perfect for highlighting the center of your lid and the inner corners.

TonyMoly – EyeTone Single Shadow S17 – P248.00

At first I thought maybe pink would be a great single shadow, but sometimes pink eyeshadow can be too harsh and over the top. I would rather go with a wine/marsala color that is perfect for the lower half of your eyelid, feathered upwards.


Loves the sunrise but wakes up late. Also uses too many adjectives.
