Hi, I'm Taylor, an aspiring makeup artist. I love makeup, every part of it! However I also think it is hugely important to be aware of inner beauty as well. This is why I made this blog. I want to blog about makeup and beauty products, but also about what makes each one of us special, unique, and amazing on the inside. Every one of us are beautiful in every way, we just need to start being confident about what makes us different. I hope you enjoy my blog! :]

Eye shadow: Customized For Your Very Own Eyes!
To find out your perfect eye shadow colors, all you have to do is look at a color wheel!
This is not my picture, I do not own it.
All you have to look for your eye color on the color wheel, then look at the color directly on the other side of the color wheel from your eye color, and that is the color that will create the most contrast with your eyes. This color will make your eyes pop the most. Let's say for example you have green eyes, red will create the most contrast. Not too many people wear red eye shadow (However, you could if it is your style!), but if your not into wearing red eye shadow you could also try oranges and purples, or even colors with those undertones in it. So if you had green eyes, you could try a brown with red undertones. You could also contrast even more with darker and lighter colors. Like for example the lighter your eyes, the darker you could go with eye makeup to make them pop. If your eyes are darker go with lighter colors to make them stand out.
Here are some examples for each eye color:
Blue- browns, reds, oranges, yellows, ect.
Green- purples, reds, oranges, ect.
Brown- blues, pinks, greens, purples, ect.
Amber- blues, purples, pinks, ect.
Hazel- go by whether your eyes are more green, amber, or brown, like I listed above.
Purple- greens, yellows, oranges, ect.
Grey/Black- stay away from greys and silvers, which can look like too much. Any colors really look great with grey or black, try colors like blues, purples, greens, pinks, ect.
There are some colors that look on pretty much everyone though like gold, chocolate brown, champagne, a nuetral-toned purple, royal blue, taupe, and cream.
Bonus!- If you have little flecks of different colors in your eye color, you could choose to either use a color similar or opposite to those little flecks to bring out those specific colors in your eyes.
Thanks so much for reading; please follow and comment, it is very much appreciated! :]
