Shop Pressed Eyeshadow
Pressed eyeshadow is the most common eyeshadow type out there, as it’s known for its long-lasting and blendable formula. Available as either single pressed eyeshadows or found in duos, quads, and larger eyeshadow palettes, pressed powder eyeshadows still dominate the beauty world. Powder shadows are perfect for all ages, skin types, and skill levels.
Pressed powder eyeshadows are popular because their finely milled formulas pack a punch with pigment while remaining easy to blend and forgiving. That’s why these shadows are the perfect choice for beauty novices. Powder shadows can also be incredibly long-lasting without creasing or fading. Finally, pressed powder eyeshadow is available in a large range of colours and finishes to suit every complexion and style.
Matte eyeshadow is best for subtle everyday sculpting, whereas shimmer eyeshadow can add drama and definition to both daytime and evening looks. Glitter eyeshadow and metallic eyeshadows are perfect for the party season and for taking your makeup look from day to night. When choosing a pressed eyeshadow, you want to look for rich pigmentation. These eyeshadows can be worn alone for an instantly stunning look but will blend beautifully with other shadows without muddying or losing definition.
Whether you’re after an everyday neutral palette or a bold silver pressed glitter eyeshadow, finding an appropriate shadow won’t be difficult. That’s because nearly all your favourite beauty brands offer pressed powder eyeshadows. MAC eyeshadows come in every colour and finish you’d ever want—from red eyeshadow to green eyeshadow and everything in between—all available in gorgeous palettes. If you want a nourishing organic pressed eyeshadow, we recommend the Jane Iredale PurePressed collection, which comprises singles, duos, and triples, all in gorgeous, wearable shades.
