Eyes Authentic

In general neutral eye shadows work for all eye colours.

Blue eyes can wear shades of blue (if desired) and golden browns make blue eyes pop nicely. Charcoal greys look great for a smokey eye look – better than black, which can be too harsh. Green eyes again can wear shades of green but russet/purple tinged tones make the eyes stand out. Brown eyes can wear most brown shades of eye shadow – muted tones of blue and navy intensify the colour. Hazel eyes look great in similar toned shades of khaki and golden hazels but can also wear purple/reddish tinged browns to intensify. Darker eyes look wonderful in browns, some jewel- like colours and black is gorgeous for a dramatic smokey eye.

Eye colours that are neutral, soft and not too shimmery are best to keep eyes looking fresh and younger. Avoid too much mascara or eyeliner.

For a playful eye look, why not try the following BECCA tutorial?

Apply Eye Tint in Baroque onto the lids as a base using Eye Creme Brush #31. With Eye Colour Wash Brush #36, apply Eye Colour Powder in Faille from the Halcyon Days Palette all over the eye, extending colour to just below the brow bone.Using Eye Colour Blender Brush #35, blend Eye Colour Powder in Chamois into the socket line, fading in toward the inner eye. Darken the outer edges with the same shade using Eye Contour Brush #38. Apply Eye Colour Powder in Muslin to the center of the lid to highlight. With soft feathery strokes, line the upper and lower lash-line with Automatic Eye Pencil in Goa.

Intensify the outer edges by adding Automatic Eye Pencil in Majorca and smudge using the opposite end of the pencil. For additional smolder, blend Eye Colour Powder in Chamois into the lower lash line. Coat top and bottom lashes with TheUltimate Mascara in Black.
