They say your eyes are the window to your soul. They are certainly part of you that is on display at all times. It doesn’t matter what culture or religion you belong to, the eyes are visible and reflect your innermost emotions.
That’s why it’s essential that you accentuate your eyes; you want the window to your soul to be as impressive as possible!
Of course, the right eyeshadow doesn’t just bring out your eye colour, it will also improve the look of your entire face. In contrast, using the wrong eyeshadow is likely to make your eyes look dull or even washed out.
Here’s how to make sure that you choose the best possible eyeshadow:
There are many different products available to choose from. Your preferred choice will be a personal decision. However, it is important to look at natural products, such as the MCoBeauty range. These products are certified cruelty free and are virtually guaranteed to help you create the perfect look.
The basis of choosing the right colour eyeshadow revolves around knowing which colours go with which eye colours:
• Blue Eyes
Blue is a cool colour, that means you need warm-coloured eyeshadows to accentuate the colour of your eyes. Look to grays, taupe, and other earth-based colours. Pink or rose can also work if you want a brighter look.
You should avoid blue eyeshadow as this will dull your eyes.
• Green Eyes
Green is generally a much warmer colour and works well with purple colours. Plum, violet, mauve, and even lilac will all help to accentuate your eyes. Alternatively, you can try some bronzing or golden eyeshadows.
You may want to add a brow eyeliner to finish the look properly.
• Brown Eyes
If you have brown eyes, you’re extremely lucky - they are a base colour and almost any colour eyeshadow will go with them.
The darker the eyeshadow the more dramatic, and potentially sexy, you’ll look. In contrast choose warm colours, such as reds and browns to add depth to your eyes.
Pink and green are also very good at bringing the natural brown out in your eyes. The one colour you should stay away from is brown!
• Hazel Eyes
Hazel eyes are part brown and part green. This gives you the ability to choose colours from the brown range or the green one. In short, there are few colours that won't work with hazel eyes.
But, to really make your eyes sparkle you should try yellow or golden eyeshadows.
As with anything, the final look must display your personality. Test a few different eyeshadows out at home to see what works best for you. You’re certain to find the style and colour that suits you best.
Just remember, always apply your eyeshadow first, before your other makeup. This ensures the rest of your makeup stays clean, even if you drop a little doing your eyes.
It’s also a good idea to use an eye primer before your eyeshadow. This increases the depth and prevents creasing around the eye.
