I have learned that if you have brown eyes to make your eyes pop you can wear blues and greens, if you have blue eyes stay away from blue colors wear more of the natural earth tones, green eyes are pretty easy to work with as you can wear just about any color you are comfortable with. Every once in a while I try something different something a little extreme or different and get tons of complements...You just have to learn to think outside the box and be willing to do something a little different which is very hard for most people...I'd love to help anyone learn new colors...

I stick with natural colors but I use white( matte) in the corners to brighten my eyes and give me a more awake and refreshed look and sometimes in the crease . Been doing this for years love the look. I want to master the smoke out ASAP since I am going out next weekend with hubby and would love to b able to create that look gently. Any advice ladies?
I find I have my times where I absolutely despise certain colours but will then love them in the future. Right now I am all about neutrals and I have always been a sucker for a simple cat eye with liquid liner but I would say RED will always be a no go colour for me. I don't think I have ever seen someone who has been able to legitimately pull off that colour. Red I find gives that "seasonal allergies" look when people use them on their eyes. JUST SAY NO!

I'll do anything! As long as it's appropriate to the occasion (no glitter at funerals!) and the formula works on me, anything goes! (One caveat: I look kinda weird in yellow and lime green so I generally avoid them, but sometimes I'll mix them in as an accent color!)
I love them all....neutrals,brights,metallic,glitter,m att,powder and creamy. The trick to using colour is to know which shade works for you and where to apply them.Lots of ideas on youtube.Some personal favs are pixiwoo,michellphan,mischievous. To give shadow staying power, i use an eyeshadow primer.

I think most colors are safe provided you know how to apply them properly, where to apply them, what colors work with what, and what colors work for you...Although I would never go near blues...too much 80's going on there. I also say stay away from the bright colors...no need for royal purple, or magenta. You can never go wrong with earth tones...just make sure they work with your skin color and tones. Metallic/shimmer is also good...but you should wear a matte shade and use the shimmer for highlight to give some contrast and cut the "glitter effect". I also don't recommend those gel, in-a-tube shadows, they look cakey.
I don't mind wearing some colors and do but I don't like those really bright almost metallic looking ones. Especially the gel like ones that clump up the minute you put it on and open your eyes. I've seen several people wear these and as they are blinking you just can't help but notice the clumping.
