Hi, I'm Alice von Simson, licensed cosmetologist and owner of Secret Salon in Carlsbad, California. Today, I'm going to be showing you, in a video, what matte eye shadows are used for. Whether it's a historical look you're after, or you just wanna do a bit of contouring, I'll show you exactly how to use them. So, there are three reasons you might use a matte eye shadow, such as these two in this NAKED palette. The first would be if you wanted to contour something, or push it back, make it smaller, so you might use it for, you know, doing your crease, or you might even want to use a matte eye shadow for your brows. The other reason that you might want to use one would be to do a historical look. For example, if you're doing makeup from the 1940's, well, they didn't have shimmer eye shadows back then, so if you want it to look realistic, then you're going to use a matte shadow.
