What colors suit my eyes?
Being a makeup artist and addict, I have seen and toyed around with many an eye color in my days... People always ask me what colors suit their eye color and I always cringe a little. Although very true that certain shadow and liner colors look better on some eyes than other, I believe that makeup is one of those things that is preference based. If you have green eyes and you like green shadow...GO FOR IT! Brown eyes and pink shadow? GO FOR IT! But if we break out the color wheel and think about this in a scientific way what works best?
COLORS THAT MAKE BLUE EYES POP: gold, pink, peach, grey
COLORS THAT MAKE GREEN EYES POP: lavender, plumb, mauve, golds *TIP* Think opposites attract... red based colors will work best
COLORS THAT MAKE BROWN EYES POP: purples, golds, steel blues, pewter, deep greens
And as always girls... a black liner and black mascara will make any color, shape or sized eye stand out in a crowd! ~Alyx
Do you have oily eyelids or shadows that crease all the time and ruin your sexy eyeshadow look? Here's a tip that may help you.
Before applying any eyeshadow to your lid, put on a dab of Too Faced Shadow Insurance ($18 at Ulta)! This product helps the staying power of your shadow and prevents creases! Also you can use NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk or any other color you prefer as a base to hold the shadow in place and give it a more pigmented look!
