Today I will focus on how to pick the right color for your eyeshadow. While a lot of people tend to match their eyeshadow to the clothes they are wearing, this can make you look dated and might not work for everyone. To determine the right color, you will need to look at your natural eye color and your natural skin tone.

1. Natural Eye Color
Choose a color that complements your eye color but not one that matches your eye color completely. Sometimes a color that contrasts with it can make your eyes pop. If your eyes are:

Brown – try plum, taupe, bronze, green, blue, grey, neutrals and pretty much anything.

Green – try purple, gold, brown, neutrals and apricot.

Blue – try taupe, bronze, purple, grey, pink and neutrals.

Gray – purple, silver and peach all look hot on gray eyes.
