I'll openly admit that I'm on a constant quest to up my eye shadow game. Finding the right makeup for your personal needs and skin tone is an art form and one I'm hellbent on perfecting. Since I've recently found a few great lipsticks that really work for an everyday look, my sights are now set on refining my eye look and taking it to the next level. Single eye shadows really help me do that. 

Most are pretty budget-friendly and blend really well with other shadows you may have lying around so it's easy to mix and match. I have a few of my own personal favorites, but I decided to dig through the bags of a few celebrity makeup artists to check myself. The wonderful Maya René and Beck Wainner were happy to oblige. Keep scrolling for all of the best single eye shadows ever created.
