Who is suitable?

Any make-up needs to be selected based on its color type. Since the main emphasis in this form is placed on the eyes, it means that the entire choice of colors and shades will be exactly the eye. Otherwise, girls of all color types should follow the same recommendations:

  • It is necessary to tidy up the skin. For this you need a suitable foundation (as an option - BB or SS-cream), concealer.
  • To prevent the emergence of a completely "non-school" oily shine, need fixing powder.
  • To achieve the effect of shining and sculpting Persons will definitely need bronzers and highlighters. For dark skin and dark hair - golden shades, for fair-haired girls with fair skin - pink and peach. A hint of champagne type will be universal.
  • Lipstick is better to pick in shade, as close as possible to natural color. Gentle make does not imply too bright lips. The task is to make them plump and seductive, so usually make-up artists select the natural shade of matte lipstick and “enliven” it with a drop of transparent gloss in the center of the lips.

When choosing shades for eye makeup you should be guided, first of all, by the color of the iris. However, shades of shadows should not only highlight the eyes, but also match the color of the clothes and match the situation. If all these rules are followed - this is the perfect makeup.

  • Owners of brown eyes often have a warm appearance - dark or golden skin, dark blond hair with redhead. Accordingly, the best shades will look warm in natural natural gamma. For the gentle make-up of a brown-eyed man, you can pick up the shades of golden, red tones. From the green fit deep turquoise, coniferous. From blue shades you need to choose colors with a warm subtone - blackberry, blue-violet, plum. Of the red and pink most advantageous will look salmon, apricot. Simple black and white colors should be avoided. If you want to add such shades to your make-up, it is better to prefer deep chocolate and the color of baked milk.
  • Blue-eyed girls can be very different - blond or dark hair. Accordingly, the make will be different. For fair-haired girls shades of lavender, pink, silver colors are best suited. Owners of blue eyes and dark hair, you can use more dramatic shades: dark blue, purple, golden. Brunettes with blue eyes clearly do not go pink colors (they create the feeling of inflamed eyes) and all shades of green.
  • Grey eyes usually have blotches of blue or green. From this and it is worth repelling when choosing shadows. For a gentle make-up you need to enhance the shade that gray eyes have. Gray-blue eyes will look brighter, if you shade them bright sky-blue, silver. You can try to do makeup in dark blue or grayish color, but you need to remember that gray shadows should not be in tune with the eyes. They should be a bit darker or lighter - depending on what effect you want to achieve.
  • Gray-green eyes look more expressive with terracotta shadows, you can try the white and yellow versions. Monochrome shadows - for example, black, seroglazkam not go. That is why makeup artists consider gray eyes to be unsuitable for make-up smoky ice, for example. By themselves, such eyes are dull, so they should be highlighted with the help of color shadows with smooth color transitions.
  • Green eyes considered the rarest and very beautiful. Make-up for them needs to be selected very carefully - as a rule, the appearance of green-eyed girls is quite difficult. Green shades of shadows are usually little in demand, but in this case it is what you need. You can safely use all shades - from delicate mint to emerald.

It is very beneficial to emphasize the warmth of the green eyes with golden and copper shadows with a delicate sheen. Of the pink suit quite bright, almost a puppet. A pretty cute and light look is obtained from the green-eyed peach shades.

Taboo for green eyes - blue and silver shades.

Pay attention to the area under the eyes, the wings of the nose, the corners of the lips - there means sometimes going into folds. The boundaries of the hairline and the neckline should not be visible.
  • Tidy eyebrows - tint them with pencil or shadows, shape with wax.
  • Now you can start eye makeup. It is advisable to put a primer on the upper eyelid under the shadows - it will help the shadows look brighter, and they will last longer.
