Personally, I think shimmery colors are easier to work with than matte ones, but there are some undeniable attractive qualities in soft matte looks. :)
Matte colors are less forgiving since they don't give "illuminating" effects so I had to work a little harder(?) on my base makeup.
(meaning that I used concealer today. ;p)
I wanted to keep everything simple and clean.
For eyes, I used L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering liner in black drawing thick lines and smudged with a short stiff brush, then just blended with L'Oreal Infallible in Sultry Smoke using my fingertip.
I also made sure to use matte colors and my cheeks and lips. :)
