To accentuate blue eyes, you use gold/brown eyeshadows.

For smaller eyes you shouldnt use dark colours heavily, this will make them seem smaller.

The only way to get really good at doing your own make-up is to practice!

I hope this helps

I have really similar colouring to you and here's what I do - play around and you'll eventually find what suits you best

Eyes: golden browns with a warm brown eyeliner. Black eyeliner is too severe on me. I usually use a darker brown eyeshadow applied with a damp slanted brush. Coppery coloured liners on a light brown shadow seem to make my eyes really blue. Check the thread on blue eyes for pictures of shades

Cheeks: Peach doesn't suit me. I have a lot of pink in my skin so I use a light pink like Benefit Dandelion as my blush (even though it's technically not a blush). YSL's Touche Blush in the baby pink is lovely and makes my cheekbones really stand out. It's not garish, even though the colour is vivid in the jar.

(sephora.com and strawberrynet.com)

Lips: I'm not a fan of dark lips on pale skin, so I just use a gloss or lipstick that's a shade or two darker than my natural lips. Too pale and my lips just fade into my face.



Face: whatever you do, make sure that your foundation matches your skin perfectly. You're supposed to match it to your face, but my face is darker than my neck and salesgirls have made me look clownish, like my face and neck are from different people's bodies! So my advice would be to take the colouring of your neck and decolletage into account when buying foundation.

hope this helps! This is all v natural makeup but if you're only starting off you don't want to be attempting couture makeup!

do you have pale skin as well?! Is that why you are posting in this thread? Sorry...just confused...

I also have blue-grey eyes and pale skin (with pink undertones) though my hair color is a true auburn. Though this is an old thread, I agree with the above posters. I use a lot of orange/copper and browns but I do use black eyeliner (though my mascara is a dark brown). I use a bright pink eyeshadow as my blush (I put it on with my fingers) as I think it gives my cheeks the best flushed look.

If this is the color combo you have and you want to go to a darker hair color, it really depends on the shade. Once in high school I went darker and it really brought out the color in my skin and everyone commented how much more 'alive' I looked (ah the good ol' backhanded compliment). About two years ago I went darker again, but the color didn't have the same depth and while it looked alright, it didn't bright color to my face and without that element, it really wasn't worth it.

I find that a cool pink blush, dark brown eyeliner on the upper waterline and black mascara brings out the colour of my eyes...I'm not an eye shadow person, really.

I couldn't find the appropriate thread for my question, but since I have blue eyes I'll just ask here ...
I'm searching for a gold eyeshadow, could someone recommend some brands?
