Many people think that to enhance the color of their eyes, they should use an eye-shadow of the same color as their iris. But by doing this, the makeup will take attention away from the beauty that is your eyes. So, instead use complementary colors according to the color of your eyes. For example if you have:
- Blue eyes: choose natural colors such as brown, beige, or gray/black colors
- Green eyes: choose light pink, purple, brown and gray colors
- Brown or Dark eyes: choose tones of blue and green
When using multiple eye-shadows, use the lighter shadows, avoiding the heavy and dark colors, along the upper eyelid. Also remember to use a highlighter or a light color shadow with a shimmer under the arch of your brow or brow-bone. It is important to know that you should never apply a dark eye-shadow on the upper eyelid if you have a drooping upper eyelid.

Applying Black Eyeliner
The most common error is to only use eyeliner along the lower lash line. This will make you look tired and fatigued. To make your eye pop and create a nice shape, apply the liner along the top line. Apply it by starting from the interior part of the eye going to the outside. If you want to apply the liner under the eye as well, make sure to apply a very thin line and then blend it nicely.
Be sure to keep the liner light and thin, avoid adding thick layers. Thick eyeliner applied to the upper lash line will look heavy and be a distraction from your beautiful natural eye color.

Makeup is used to enhance and embellish your features, not to point out your imperfections. So, always choose the correct colors for your skin and eye color. Also remember to start light and build to avoid over application and achieve the perfect look.
