Every (good) eye shadow palette should have a good mix of highlight to shade tones and a play on texture being matte to metallic.
This is how we can build and give structure to the eye.
Deeper colours are shaping shades and add structure, use on your socket line, top and lower lash lines. These colours are normally on the matte end of the scale.
Medium shades are good base shades, all over wash of mobile eyelid to socket. This is a lighter version of structure shades.
Metallic shades will be a finishing, night shade and when you want to bring light to an area. Commonly used on mobile eyelid and inner area of the eye, depending on its depth.
