I try to experiment with colors once in a while or when I go out at night, but the truth is I’m loyal to neutrals. I will wear the same look over and over and all I do is alternate between shades of brown, gold, and lilac. Recently, I’ve bought some more colorful eye shadows in order to add some color to my makeup. Here are a few ways I like to wear color on my eyes:
1. Eye shadow and Matching Eyeliner: I wore blue and black eye shadows with a coordinating eyeliner on my waterline. Matching my liner to my eye shadow really made my eyes pop and tied the look together. For me, this is a night look (dinners, birthdays, parties, etc.)
2. Color on the Lower Lash Line: I think this is my favorite way to add color to my makeup. It looks very pretty and wearable. The purple shadow is MUFE #92.
3. Pop of Color on the Inner Corner: I’ve worn this a lot during the daytime. It’s the subtlest way to add any color to your look. The orange eye shadow is MAC’s Rule.
4. Colored Smoky Eye: Instead of using mostly neutrals or black shades, a colored smoky eye is an easy way to incorporate color. It keeps the look dramatic but not overly dark. This was a nighttime look as well.
I also like to do a neutral eye and use a colorful eye shadow just on the center of my lid. When I was younger I used to experiment with bright colors more often. For some reason as I’ve gotten older I seldom leave my neutrals comfort zone. Using colors is so fun so I’ve been trying to incorporate them more lately. 🙂
What’s your favorite way to wear colorful eye shadow?
