Choosing the right eye shadow for your eye color can be tricky, but extremely important for your night out. Although the all natural look became very popular this summer, fall is approaching rather quickly and its time to bring out the darker shades.
If you have baby blues, brown and orange shades are definitely for you! Dark liner will really make your eyes pop. Whether you choose black or brown, be sure to apply heavily to the areas you would like your lashes to look the longest (outside corners especially!). Try a cream colored base for your lid and along the brow line. Cover the crease of your eyelid and the outside corner with a darker shade of brown. This can also be used underneath your bottom lashes to create a more dramatic effect. Finish up with lots of mascara! Maybelline Mega Plush works wonderfully for volume and lengthening.
Green eyes are most distinctive beside shades of purple. A purple smokey eye can be difficult to pull off. First, cover just the lid with a light lavender color. Fill the crease of your eyelid and the outside corner with a dark plum. Line your lashes with a dark purple or black eyeliner, and finish off with lots of mascara. Your greens will be gleaming!
Brown-eyed girls can pull off shades of brown and purple as well, but for a more dramatic effect, try blues! A navy smokey eye would be a great choice for you. Use a light silver or blue for the base and brow line, and a dark navy for the crease and outside corner. Line the lashes with a dark gray or black, and finish with lots of mascara on both the bottom and top lashes focusing on the bottom outside corner.
