Kate Hudson is one busy lady! Not only is she returning as the face of Ann Taylor, working on her debut capsule collection for the store, & has recently appeared as a recurring character on Glee, but she’s also continuing her role as spokesmodel for cosmetics giant, Almay. Courtesy of InStyle, I was able to find behind-the-scenes images of Kate in action, showing off her beautiful features with Almay’s Intense i-Color Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00) in Bold Nudes, which is available @Ulta. This color trio is also available in blue, hazel, & green shades to match with your eye color.

The Stylish Five: Pretty Hues For Your Peepers ($10 & Under)!


I can’t even remember the last time I bought eyeshadow (perhaps b/c I have sooo much of it), but every now & again, it’s always a good idea to refresh your collection with some new hues.  Here are some of my affordable suggestions, all for under $10 @Ulta.

The Almay Intense I-Color Satin Eyeshadow in Greens ($6.99) is a palette perfect for any eye color & the chic blend of green & purple will make the lighter flecks of color really stand out.  The Prestige Cosmetics Eyeshadow Duo in Morada ($2.39) is a great way to reinvent the smoky eye, especially in such rich purple hues.  This affordable duo also comes in combinations of neutrals, pinks, & blues.  My favorite everyday eye shadow is Revlon’s 12 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Nude Elements ($3.29) b/c its neutral for daytime, but still smoldering when blended with the darker hues for a date night.  To perk up your peepers with cream instead of powder, try Revlon’s Illuminance Creme Shadow in Black Magic ($5.99) will take away any evidence of your previously night’s party.  For those Style Darlings that really like to sparkle, NYX’s Glitter Cream Palette in Ocean Breeze ($5.99) gives you five different & vibrant options in one package!  This also comes in combinations of golds, silver, purples, & bronze shades!
