Picking Eyeshadow


The best dressed women wear eyeshadow that is natural looking. It should accent and enhance eyes so people look into them, and not just at the eyelids. The latest trend in eyemake-up is to use colors that compliment your skintones and your eye color to give you a naturally, flattering look. 

If you have not already done so, visit our
Picking Foundation section to help you determine your color category. Once you know your color category, look at your eyecolor without make-up in natural light.
