Picking the Perfect Eyeshadow Palette for Your Eye Color
When it comes to makeup, most people take “there are no rules in makeup” a little too far. Yes, it is true that you can wear whatever you want for makeup, but if you want to look your best there are some rules that you definitely should consider. One of the most important rules to consider when applying makeup is to compliment your eye colour with your eye shadow palette. Of course, you can choose any colour eye shadow that you want, but choosing colours that compliment your natural eye colour will not only make your face more appealing, but will make your eyes stand out.
If you have blue eyes, you can have a little fun with your eye shadow choice. Blue eyes can be manipulated by colour. They can appear grayish, vivid or even icy depending on the choice of eye shadow palette that you go with. For a true grayish blue tone you should go with purple or lavender shades. This will give your eyes a naturally light looks and help the colour really pop.
Want a richer blue colour? Go with a rust coloured eye shadow and pair it with a teal. The combination will not only enhance your natural eye colour, but it will give you a little edge and drama.
If you have green eyes, there is a specific eye shadow palette that you should stick with to give your eyes the best look. Green is slightly challenging and if you wear the wrong colour, you can make your eyes look washed out. Mustard, golds and chocolate are excellent eye shadow choices for your eye colour. This palette will highlight the natural flair for your eyes and give them brightness.
Peach is also a great eye shadow colour for green eyes. If you want to go with a touch of colour, avoid wearing anything in the blue family. Instead, go with purples with pink undertones.

If you have brown eyes, you have a little more flexibility when choosing your eye shadow palette. However, there are certain colours that will help your eyes stand out better. Rich, jewel toned eye shadow colours will do wonders for your eyes. Burgundy and warm brown are safe choices for brown eyes. If you want to have a sexy effect, go with navy and midnight blues.
