Shade it right…

Well, most of us are in a situation to afford for a best make up and cosmetics we can… but, many times we end up choosing a wrong type of shades, be it our lip color or our eye shadow, that is perfectly not matching to our skin type or dress or even the occasion. So, to get it right and to wear a perfect eye shadow, here are the few guidelines. Remember, you need to know your eye balls color in order to know your eye shadow ka shade;

brown eyes

You are lucky because brown eye colour is darker than any other natural eye colour so attention is naturally drawn to the eyes and it seems you can wear almost any color.

If you want to experiment, the best eyeshadow colors for brown eyes are golden browns, blues, greens, greys, purples and burgundy. Avoid a yellowish brown colour.

blue eyes

One of those ‘Rules’ is that people with blue eyes should never wear any type of blue eyeshadowcolour. Wearing blue eyeshadow will make blue eyes look washed out. Is this true for you?

Recommendations are rich warm browns, warm taupes, soft peach colors and greys. Green may not look flattering; it depends on how blue your eyes are, your skin tone and which green hue you use.

green/hazel eyes

Golden browns, warm taupes, deep purples, soft peaches, pink, gold and soft violets work well.

To find what brings out hazel eyes, look at the flecks of colour near the pupil. This is my eye colouring and I find that copper looks stunning as well as a navy blue or green (as long as it is not too vivid).

grey eyes

Grey eyes are unique and should definitely be shown off. Try black, charcoal, deep greys, deep browns, cool browns and purple to make your grey eyes stand out.

some more tips for you;

Want an alluring look? Use metallic colors. Unlike metallic colours of yesteryear, these ones will not accentuate any eyelid wrinkles.

For bigger eyes? Shadows make things look bigger so mimic a shadow by using black eye shadow. This takes practice and just that so you don't look like you have slept in your makeup.

This reminds me of a tip I read recently: take the time to put on your eye makeup then rub your eyes. After removing the excess smudges underneath your eyes you will have a sexy, sultry look. I confess to not having tried this one yet.

Want to portray that difference? Wear a colour that matches your eyes.

Want your eye colour to really stand out? Contrast colour helps colour to stand out. Colours on the other side of the color wheel make the best contrast color: so if you have blue eyes the opposite colour is brown - easy.
