For Your Eyes
Eye shadow can help enhance your natural eye colour. Certain colours bring out your eyes. But, determining the right eye shadow colour for your eye colour is more than just reading a list of possibilities. You still need to choose a shade that blends well with your skin tone.
Everyone has a different eye colour and skin tone. If you have fair skin and blue eyes, for example, you would want to choose an eye shadow that enhances both. You also need to take into account what you are wearing and your hair colour. Someone with olive skin, blonde hair, and hazel eyes will choose a colour that enhances all three.
Sound confusing? It doesn’t have to be. Consult a professional or knowledgeable friend to help you choose your colours. Experiment using free samples and get a few makeovers. Find colours that work for a few different looks. Here is some additional advice on how to match your eye shadow with your eye colour.
You could have light blue eyes, dark blue eyes, or a shade in between. Experiment with various shades of taupe, blue, purple, grey, and black. Choose more subdued shades for day wear and experiment with the trendy alternatives for an evening look.
Hazel eyes often reflect the colours around them. For that reason, it is extremely important to change your eye look for different outfits. Since hazel eyes most often appear green, they are listed together in the same category. Colours that work well with hazel and green eyes include pink, brown, khaki and plum. Experiment with different shades within these colour families to create looks for different occasions and outfits.
Brown eyes look great in shades of pink, plum, brown, and deep blues. The colours that look best will depend on the undertones of your skin. For example, if you have brown eyes and olive skin, you will look best in shades of pink or brown. If you have brown eyes, fair skin, and dark hair, you may look best in various shades of pink and plum.
