We went over how to put on eye make up a while ago. We discussed the methods and the application of the make up itself. We even got some hints as to how to make your eyes look bigger, smokier, or more flirtatious. However, I think it is time to talk about color with your eye make up.
A lot of people are under the impression that they should wear eye shadow that matches their outfit. While this can bring some attention to your eyes, most often it is negative attention, rather than positive attention. This leaves most people looking like clowns, rather than the respectable, intelligent and beautiful women (and men) that they are.
Instead, think about wearing colors that compliment your eyes. Yeah, this will cut down on your color choices considerably, but it can provide the best look possible, and give you the results that you are looking for. Here is a basic little chart that I wrote up to help you find the right make up colors for you and your own, unique and beautiful eyes.
|Eyes||Base Color||Highlight Color|
Play around with the different hues, and find the perfect colors for your eyes. You can go darker in order to get that smoky look, or you can go lighter, more pastel to find that fun and flirtatious look. No matter what, make sure the colors work for your eyes, rather than following just your outfit.
