How to choose an eye shadow color?





Eye shadow is a makeup essential for many women. It can be used to enhance the eyes, to add depth and dimension to the look or to create a bolder, more colorful look. But choosing the right eye shadow color can sometimes be difficult, especially if you are new to makeup.


In this article, we'll give you some tips on how to choose the right eye shadow color for your skin tone and eyes.





  • Identify your eye color!

Your eye color is a key element to consider when choosing your eye shadow. In general, we recommend choosing colors that contrast with your eye color to create a contrasting effect and make your eyes stand out.

For example, if you have blue eyes, you can choose warm colors like orange, copper or gold to create a contrast with the blue of your eyes.

If you have green eyes, you can choose pink, purple or violet colors to create a contrast effect.

If you have brown eyes, you can dare all colors, but you can also opt for warm colors like gold or copper to bring out the warmth of your eyes.



  • Consider your eye shape:

The shape of your eyes can also have an impact on your eye shadow color choice. If you have round eyes, use darker colors on the outer corner of the eye to give the illusion of a longer eye. For almond-shaped eyes, use lighter colors on the mobile lid and darker colors on the outer corner of the eye to create the illusion of depth.



  • Consider your skin tone!

The color of your skin tone is also something to consider when choosing your eyeshadow. In general, we recommend choosing colors that match your skin tone to create a harmonious and natural effect.

If you have light skin, you can opt for soft colors like pink, beige or taupe.

If you have dark skin, you can choose intense colors like purple, blue or green to create a contrasting effect.

If you have dark skin, you can opt for warm colors like orange, gold or copper to bring out the warmth of your complexion.



  • Consider the occasion!

Choosing the right eye shadow color also depends on the occasion you are wearing makeup for.

In general, it is advised to choose subdued and discreet colors for everyday life and more intense and bold colors for special occasions.

If you have a job interview or work in a professional environment, you can opt for neutral colors like beige, brown or gray.

If you are going out for a night out or attending a wedding, you can afford more intense colors like red, purple or blue.



  • Choose according to your outfit:

When choosing an eyeshadow color, it's important to consider the outfit you're going to wear.

Bright colors can be bold and eye-catching, while neutral and soft colors can be more subtle and elegant.

If you're wearing a colorful outfit, you can opt for an eye shadow color to match, but if you're wearing a neutral outfit, you can opt for a bolder color to add a pop of color.



  • Choose a finish

In addition to color, you should also consider the finish of the eyeshadow. Matte and satin finishes are perfect for a workday, while metallic and glittery finishes are more suitable for an evening out. If you are using multiple colors, you can combine different finishes to create a more interesting look.



In conclusion, choosing the right eye shadow color to match your skin tone, eye color, eye shape and outfit can seem daunting, but with these simple tips, you'll be able to choose the colors that work best for you.

Remember, eye shadow is a versatile and fun makeup product that can be used to create many different looks, so feel free to experiment and find what works best for you!
