  • When you are shopping for makeup for your eyes, it is important to choose the right shades for your skin tone and style. Different shades of eye shadow let you create a variety of eye makeup looks for every occasion and accentuate your eye color beautifully. Choosing the best eye shadow color for your eyes will enhance them immensely. Eye makeup is one of the most important part in the whole look. Your eyes are the first feature that many people notice when first meeting you. The power of makeup will make them stand out and impress whomever you meet for the first time. This article explores different eye shadow color and which each one is appropriate for your eyes.



    1.For blue eyes, warm browns and peaches will make your eyes stand out. Brown is the contrast color of blue and will bring out the blue in your eyes. You should stay away from blue eye shadow. A cool rose colored eye shadow will complement your eyes nicely.

    2.For gray eyes, cool browns and cool purples tend to look the best with your eyes. Cool colors match gray eyes because gray is a cool color.

    3.For brown eyes, you can almost get away with any color.

    4.For green / hazel eyes, you should try warm orange-brown eye shadow color. It will make your eyes stand out. Green / hazel eyes are earth tone eyes, try violet or purple colors as well.

    5.Be careful with any shade of green eye shadow color. If it's not done right, you will look very unnatural. The shade of green is important as well. Bright greens tend to look unnatural while dark greens make your eyelids look dirty. Leave this color to the skilled makeup artist.

    6.Be careful with pinks, it tends to make eyes look more puffy. Pink eye shadows are for people that have deep set eyes. In fact, if you want to bring your eyes forward, pink is the best color to do the job.

    7.Wear brown eye shadows for a more natural look. It will enlarge your eyes because it's a natural color for shadows. It is also good for work because it's very subtle.

    8.Consider venue and activity. Choosing eye shadow that is best for the time of day, venue and activity is a valuable makeup tip. Bold, dramatic eye shadow is perfect for evening, while subtler shades will work best in many daytime situations. Simple brown, tan, pink and silver eye shadow shades and grey and brown eye liners, mascaras and accent shadows are great choices for work, school and lunch with friends. Bright, highly saturated colors, such as yellow and blue, make a statement and will impress and stand out at parties, nightclubs and dinners. Use your personality and eye shade to choose eye shadow colors and remember to balance venue and activity.


    9.Complement your outfit. If you have several eye shadow colors that look great on you and will work for the event and time of day, choose an eye shadow that goes with what you are wearing. Green is red's complementary color, so muted green eye shadow is a good choice when wearing red. Choose a complementary color rather than an eye shadow color that directly matches your outfit. Pink and brown complement each other in a subtle way, while grey and black together make a bolder statement.


    10.Keep neutral shades on hand. There will likely be times when you aren't sure which eye shadow to wear. A bold outfit can be tough to match, and creating a natural look is not always easy. Neutral eye shadow shades, such as beige, fawn, tan, light brown and subtle silver, are perfect when you're having a difficult time finding the right shades for you. Subtle, neutral shades look good with almost anything and still enhance your eyes' natural beauty.
