Most of the time, over-the-top eye makeup looks garner a lot more bad attention than they do good. Whether men are painfully aware of the amount of makeup you put on, or your girlfriends are looking at you with wide eyes and a practiced, forced smile, you don't want to be wondering if you should have gone for a nude look while you're being handed your fifth vodka cranberry. Then the next day when you have to go to work (or class), those glitter eyeshadows that actually stay put seem a little frivolous, don't they? Going with natural eyeshadow palettes is a safer bet in most instances, and less is almost definitely more when it comes to a natural look. With so many options, though, how do you choose which one will look best?
