Makeup | What Eyeshadow Colours to Use for Different Eye Colour’s

eyeshadows-colorWhen it comes to your wedding day every bride dreams of looking the best she possibly can. So one thing to always remember is that, you do want to look like yourself but a better version. On trend fashion colours will quickly go out of date. The last thing you want is to look back at your pictures and think “what was I thinking”

I personally love natural but flawless skin and neutral tones for eyes and hair colour, it’s timeless, elegant, classic and looks good with any shape or skin tone. It’s ok to introduce a hint of colour around the eyes but remember, the colour that’s in for this year will not be in years to come.

I like to keep with neutral toned eye shadows. Lots of yummy warm chocolates, peaches, browns, soft pinks. Very bridal but I know those colours work for most skin tones. I like to introduce colour in the eyeliner or a slight enhancer in a soft shadow in the outer corners of the eye for just an illusion of colour.

Here are the power shades to enhance and draw attention to your eye colour.

Brown eyes – Greens, champagnes, bronzes, golds, browns and blues. Also try peach, corals, copper, pink, pale purples and burnt oranges.
Blue eyes – brown/orange, taupe, grey, violet, purple, deep blue and silver. To emphasize blue eyes try brown and rose shadows.
Green eyes – Brown colours from light beige’s – deep chocolate browns. Light purples and pinks will compliment green eyes, but stay away from greens olives and silvers.
Hazel eyes – Browns, gold, pink and lavender. Plum, khaki and mocha. Purple makes eyes more dramatic and use soft pink for a more romantic look. Avoid – Blue, silver, grey and blue black.

Fair skin should always avoid anything orange or brassy as this will look very un-natural.

Mature eyes should always avoid anything with shimmer as this will enhance lines and age you more and we don’t want that!!!

If your skin is naturally pink or red avoid anything pink around the eyes as this will only make it worse.

To lighten up tired eyes you can apply some eye drops then apply a white eyeliner on the water rim of your eyes.

Consult a professional eyebrow shaper to have your face shape and eye shape taken into consideration.

Always use a great mascara to finish the look as this will enhance and open up the eye.
