Finding the right eyeshadow shade to make your eyes POP.
Your eyes are your best feature, the window to your soul. So mastering a great eye look that makes your eyes pop can dress up your whole day.
A question I often get asked by my clients, is; ‘what eye shadow colour is right for me?’
Its probably not what you would expect either!
I would like to refer you all to the colour wheel (see below) and match your eye colour with the colour opposite it. Why? Because opposites attract! The colour opposite your eye colour will offer the most dramatic contrast to help your eyes POP.
Blue eyes are naturally cool toned
and so warm tones will offer the best contrast.
Think browns and oranges! Avoid matching
blue with blue as it will make your eyes appear dull.
For those of you lucky enough to have green
eyes, think all things PINK… that includes plums
and purples depending on your mood!
Grey Eyes, one of the most rare eye colours out there!
Similar to brown eyes, you have a lot of room to play around.
Try earthy greens, light purples or even pale blues.

MORE TIPS when applying eyeshadow-
1) Apply primer on your eyelids to avoid creasing and help your eyeshadow stick all day long (it’ll also enhance the eyeshadow’s pigment).
2) Use the right brushes! Essential for properly blending your eye shadow out.
3) Match your eyeshadow to your natural colouring NOT your outfit that day (beauty myth busted).
So remember what eyeshadows work for your natural colouring and watch your eyes light up! Opposites attract, highlight the undertones in your eyes and use complementing hues in your makeup.
