Get Out of Your Color Rut!

13 Mar

Are you creatively blocked when it comes to eye shadow color? If you find yourself choosing a neutral palette day after day, it’s time to amp up the color love!

Why not embrace just one bold hue! Whether you paint your lids sunset orange or ocean blue, be sure to experiment with one flashy color this season.


RED: Instead of your usual dark smoky eye, use shades of crimson and maroon for a sexy night out on the town.

PINK:  A pink eye may seem tricky, but it’s worth the risk! Don’t be afraid to try a vivid shade!

ORANGE: The stunning deep tangerine hue is already a popular shade for fashion and beauty—it’s been named Pantone’s color of the year for 2012!

YELLOW: Yellow has been proven to boost your mood and make you feel happier, so why not brighten your day with a splash of the sunny shade on your lids?

GREEN:  This Kelly green shade is ideal on paler skin tones (and gals with hazel eyes!) and the perfect option for special occasions such as Christmas or St. Patricks Day!

BLUE: Blue isn’t just for the ’80s anymore. Modernize the old trend with sleek black liner and a nude lip.

PURPLE: Whether you experiment with lilac eyes or pull out your bright violets, purple eyes are a great smoky alternative to black or brown.

Keep in mind that you should have fun with your eye shadow!  A general rule of thumb with eye shadow is to first compliment your eye color and then it shouldn’t contrast your clothing.  In other words, don’t wear a purple based eye shadow on your blue eyes while you are wearing a coral toned shirt.  You should try to keep your clothing and eye shadow in the same or color family, or at least a complimentary family.  And finally, remember that sometimes less is more!.   A slight hint of color is all your eyes need to really pop and look mesmerizing.



Be Brave & Go Bold!
