So many people ask me, what eyeshadow work best for my eye color?  This is a question that so many people wonder and they leave it up to the cosmetic line to answer it for them.  On the market today many companies have preset eyeshadow pallets made specifically for blue, green, brown, and hazel eyes.  The problem with those compacts is that the color combination is not entirely correct.  The rules to make-up color simply come down to the timeless color wheel.  The main objective is to use the complementary color to you eye color;
green = red
blue = orange
brown = blue or green
hazel = violet
The colors don't have to be straight red or orange but you want to use shades in that particular color family.  For blue or green eyes try to use warm or neutral shades such as brown, brick/rust, copper, deep violets, or deep pinks.  For brown eyes you want to lighten them up by using shades in the blue and green family meaning light or dark colors.  Lastly is hazel eyes; hazel eyes have the advantage to make either the green stand out or the brown.  It gives you free range to choose and also you can keep the colors simple and just go for neutral tones.  A great trick to make all eyes pop is by lining either the top or bottom lid with a colored liner.  It's a nice alternative to slowly transition yourself into color on the eye.  Good luck with your make-up makeover :)

Choosing best skin-care products, which do not contain any damaging ingredients, are very necessary. Harmful products cause damage to skin, and it increases the risk of skin cancer.
