From fighting against patriarchal standards of beauty to the pure ease of it, there are plenty of reasons we love the "no-makeup makeup" look so much. We're all about playing up our features instead of hiding them, and no other beauty look seems to achieve that better. We turn our attention now specifically to the eyes. The key to a natural eye shadow makeup look is sticking to a neutral palette that matches your skin tone. From slight shimmers to even a pink shadow, we rounded up looks that hit that sweet spot of looking natural while wearing a defined eye makeup look. Scroll down to see how our favorite celebrities wear this trend.
