Which Eye Make up Colors Are Right for You?
Do you know which color(s) eye make up works best for your eye color?
It seems to be a mystery for a lot of women, but there are some really easy ways to judge it.
For the most part, choose eye colors that blend well with your skin tone and your eye color.
Most makeup artists advise that you should never match your outfit to your makeup or visa versa. However, most women do just that!
There's nothing wrong with matching them if you like the way the colors look on you. After all, your opinions are the most important to you! Experts say though, that you should instead wear makeup colors that blend well and compliment you naturally, not your clothes. You can however, quickly discern which colors look best by using a color guide.
When you look at your eyes in the mirror, you will see little flecks of color in them. Take notice of which color flecks you have in your eyes. When you choose your shadows, liners, and mascara's, keep the colored flecks in mind. It'll help you decide which colors will work best for you. You might also want to know your color season, when choosing your makeup colors.
Colors that compliment you and don’t make you look washed out or totally dramatic, are the best color choices for you. If you want to add drama, use colors that are bolder than you normally wear. You’ll get attention quickly and easily that way. If you want more of a natural look, then use earth-toned colors that blend well with your own natural colors.
Eye Make Up for Your Eye Colors
Brown Eyes: Wear colors in greens, browns, and golds. These shades will pick up the colored flecks found in brown eyes.
