Eyeshadow palettes are versatile, and can be used to create many a look for day and night! Yet with an extensive array of eye shadow colours, from soft neutrals to vibrant brights, how do you know what colours are best suited to you? Follow these simple steps and learn how to create the perfect eyeshadow for your eyes, every time.
- Firstly you need to consider your eye colour and then decipher what hues will work best for you.
Actress Margot Robbie has beautiful blue eyes.
Blue Eyes – Opt for warmer shades if you fall under the ‘blue’ category. Think soft earthy browns, warm taupes, subtle plums, terracotta, light peaches and even greys.
Abbie Cornish HAS Green EYES.
Green Eyes – Any variation of purple looks beautiful on green eyes. From violets to plums to browns with a reddish undertone.
Rose Byrne always looks sexy with her brown eyes.
Brown Eyes – Brown is a neutral colour and therefore doesn’t compete with any other colours. This means that those with brown eyes really can opt for any hues they like! Try warm earthy tones, teals, greens, purples and even metallic hues and they will offset the gold flecks in the eye.
Kirsten Stewart exudes that mysterious vibe with her hazel eyes.
Hazel Eyes – Hazel eyes contain a wide variation of both green and brown tones, this means those with hazel eyes can be more adventurous and wear shades from both the green and brown colour families.
- Decipher your eye shape.
Almond Eyes – just about every shadow look, whether it be a heavier full on evening look or a soft and subtle day look, will work for those with almond eyes.
Hooded Lids – less is more when it comes to eye shadow application for those with hooded lids. The shape creates natural shadows so just use subtle brightening shades. This will keep lids from looking too heavy.
Round Eyes – for those with the ‘wide-open’ eye shape stick to softer colours, nothing too heavy, keep it light.
- Choose darker shades for the outside of your eye and lighter colours on the inside. This will make your eyes look bigger and brighter. Add white eye shadow on the inner corners of your eyes to really make them pop.
- Blending your eyeshadows is without a doubt one of the most important factors to achieving stand out eyes. Use a blending brush (try the ELES Tapered Blending Brush) for professional application and smooth unison of colours.
