How to Find Accurate Makeup Products for You

By: Jake Hyet

When it comes to makeup everyone is an expert, and they're more than willing to share their advice. The problem is that while they may know what works for them, often they are wrong about what type of makeup is best for you. Below is some advice on how to find the right makeup products for you from beauty experts throughout the industry focusing on your eyes?

Eye Makeup

When you're discussing makeup it's essential to consider your eye color when selecting your eye shadow. It's also equally important to know how to do eye makeup and do it well. It isn't all about matching the color of your eye shadow to your eye color. No indeed. It's really about making your natural eye color be more noticeable and an asset to the rest of your face.

Blue Eyes

The right makeup should bring out the natural blue of your eyes, not overwhelm or take away from it.

Pick the Right Eye shadow

For work, makeup products such as eye shadow in shades of brown, terra-cotta, rose and neutral shades is best. Don't be afraid of purple eye shadow because it can really highlight the color of your eyes. In the daytime you can go with lavender, but for the evening it's deep plum all the way. And if the night out is a truly special occasion, you can try metallicís (both silver and gold work excellently), turquoise and icy pink are two other choices.

In addition to the colors mentioned above, for evening, dark blue mascara combined with smudged charcoal eyeliner is fantastic. For night time, blue together with black is a very dramatic look.

Brown Eyes

If you have brown eyes you are fortunate as most eye makeup colors will look good on women with brown eyes. Just follow these easy makeup suggestions to look your best and bring out your natural beauty.

Eye shadow

If your eyes are a deep dark brown, then medium to dark shades of eye shadow will look best on you. Try forest green, charcoal gray, or even plum. Pay close attention to the specks of lighter color in your eyes and use those colors to select your eyeliner. Two other colors that will look lovely on darker brown eyes are gold and bronze.

For medium to light brown eyes violet, bronze or green eye shadows work the best. Purple or green eye shadow can be great for daytime. For something special for the evening, pair neutral eye shadow with metallic eyeliner in copper or bronze.

If you have light brown eyes then skip the black eyeliner. Instead opt for colors such as dark brown. You can also try applying a neutral shade of eye shadow on the eyelid, and a darker hue of the same color in the crease, and then line your eyes in gold or green to reflect the flecks of color in your iris.

You might not realize this, but dark colors can minimize your eyes, so you don't want to use eye makeup that is too dark if you have brown eyes. You can also try using a combination of dark brown eyeliner with light eye shadow to put the focus on your eyes, so that they will appear big and bright.

If your want to look extra special for the evening, then try a metallic silver eye shadow on the eyelid together with a metallic plum eyeliner along the bottom lash line. This will really put your brown eyes on display.

Green Eyes

Eye shadow

Use purple shades of makeup to bring out those beautiful green eyes. Shades of deep plum eye shadow applied toward the edges of your eyes will widen the appearance of close-set eyes, add a lighter she of purple toward the inner eye. If youíre troubled by slightly droopy eyelids, do just the opposite. Don't use purples with blue undertones, as well as blue eye shadow and eyeliner. If you don't care for deep shades of purple, then ease into using purple by applying grayish-lavender eye shadow.

Green eyes benefit from colors like dark green, lavender, plum, purple or lilac. Gold and copper will highlight green eyes beautifully. Try and avoid black eyeliner and opt for browns or gray instead, because they are much softer and not so harsh.
