This is the article that should help you choose better between different colors of eye shadow. Why is that? Because, just like clothing or hair dye, you have to choose properly the color of your eye shadows, following the natural eye color. You can look great with a natural beige but when you’ll try to wear something more fancy, like seen on magazines covers, you’ll find out that it won’t suite you. So, take a look at these eye makeup tips according to your eye color to get perfect eye makeup, every time you apply it!
Color shades for brown eyed girls.
Brown eyed girls who want to go for a classic look should stick to metallic colors like bronze, copper or champagne and can also safely try browns, beige or khaki. Of course, fortunately (or…unfortunately for all the other girls with colored eyes) they can opt for strong colors like hot pink, violet or grass green.
Eye makeup for blue eyes.
Blue eyed beauties can get great results using colors of gray, violet, deep blue or taupe. In fact, if you choose a blue slightly darker than your eye’s color, it will make your eyes appear even brighter. Too much blue on the eyelid will only make you look like a 80’s rock princess. Be sure if you use bright colors like blue or violet that you do so sparingly.
Green or hazel eye color.
Those with mysterious green or hazel eyes can find flattering results when using shades like brown, apricot, purple, plum, khaki or pine green. These colors can brighten green or hazel eyes and are ideal for all times of the day. Those who seek a modern twist or who like to play it less than safe might want to go for colors of gold, lime or bright purple on the eyelid, however.
Makeup tips for all eye colors:
Even if you don’t have perfect technique, if you have the right brush for each area of the face, you can get great results with makeup:
- Be sure to use a larger blush brush for the cheek areas and smaller brushes for the eye area.
- An angled brush can be great when you want to apply your contouring shadow color and a squared brush might be best for the highlighting of the upper lid/brow area.
- If you don’t have an eyeliner pencil handy, you can use darker eye shadow instead of traditional liner.
