Find the best eyeshadow palette for your eye colour

Find the best eyeshadow palette for your eye colour

We all want to look naturally beautiful and find the best colours that suit our skin tone. While you probably know the best foundation colour, blush colour or lipstick for your skin tone, do you know the best eyeshadow palette for your eyes?

 

You may be forgiven for thinking that you should chose eyeshadow tones similar to your eye colour, e.g. brown eyeshadow tones for brown eyes, greens for green etc., but actually it can sometimes have the opposite effect: Just like wearing similar colours to your skin tone, which can make you look washed out; wearing similar eyeshadow tones to your eye colour can dull down eyes, sending them into the background instead of making them pop.

 

Actually the best colours for your eye colours are the ones you least expect, the opposite to your eye colour.

 

BROWN: Avoid dark browns if you want your eyes to stand out. Choose purples/lilacs, bright greens, peaches and copper or rusty browns.

BLUE: As with brown eyes, avoid the blues if you want your eyes to pop. Choose greens, khaki, browns, yellowy beiges, oranges and peach.

GREEN: Don’t go with the green if you want your cats eyes to shine. Greens can take purples, lilacs and pinks; lavender blues; reds and coral tones.

Hot tips:

1. Use Versatile Vanilla Highlighter in Falling Star as an eyeshadow primer to give colours extra brightness.
2. Use Clever Carrot Cheek & Lip balm or Rich Olive Oil Lipsticks as cream eye shadows.
3. Mix your colours to get the exact one you want: All our creative Chamomile Eye Shadow Duos are designed to be used wet or dry and to be blended. Have fun with a palette and mix them as you would watercolours to greatly increase your range of eye colours and create your perfect blend.

    Encuentra el Tono Perfecto de Sombra de Ojos y Destaca tu Mirada

    Todas queremos encontrar los tonos perfectos que combinen bien con nuestro tono de piel y nos hagan lucir naturalmente hermosas. Seguro ya sabes qué tono de maquillaje, rubor o labial te queda mejor, pero sabes también ¿qué color de sombra de ojos te va bien?

     

    Podrías pensar que las sombras deberían de combinar con tu color de ojos, pero no es así, por ejemplo, pensarías que a los ojos cafés les va bien los tonos cafés y que los ojos verdes combinan bien con tonos verdes y no es así; de hecho es todo lo contrario, combinar los mismos tonos darían un resultado poco favorecedor ya que hará que tus ojos no resalten y que se vean sin brillo pasando a un segundo plano, igual a lo que ocurre cuando combinamos tonos similares a nuestro tono de piel.

     

    Los mejores tonos para tu sombra de ojos son los que menos esperas, aquí te damos una guía de color:

     

    Ojos en tonos café: Aléjate de los tonos café, si quieres hacer que tus ojos destaquen. Elije los tonos morados, lilas, verdes intensos, duraznos, cobrizos y marrones rojizos.

    Sombras con Manzanilla Ere Perez que mejor te quedan: Green & Grin, Better Than Smokey, Without Clothes, From Beginning To End, That’s Hot.

     

    Ojos en tonos azul: Aléjate de los tonos azules si quieres resaltar tus ojos. Elige los tonos verdes, khaki, cafés, beiges con un toque de amarillo, naranjas y duraznos.

    Sombras con Manzanilla Ere Perez que mejor te quedan: Green & Grin, Very Important, It’s a Girl, From Beginning to End.

     

    Ojos en tonos verde: No elijas los tonos verdes si quieres resaltar tus ojos. Más bien elije los tonos morados, lilas y rosas, el azul lavanda, los rojos y los corales.

    Sombras con Manzanilla Ere Perez que mejor te quedan: I love Vintage, It’s a Girl, That’s Hot, Better than Smokey.

     

    Tips:

    1. Utiliza el Bálsamo Iluminador de Vainilla como “primer” antes de aplicar las sombras para que los colores se vean más vibrantes.
    2. Utiliza los Bálsamos Multiusos de Zanahoria y los Lipsticks con Aceite de Oliva como sombra.
    3. Mezcla distintos tonos para obtener el color deseado: las Sombras con Manzanilla están diseñadas para que las utilices secas o mojadas y para que las combines. Diviértete mezclándolas tal como lo harías con una paleta de acuarelas para incrementar los tonos de sombra y crear la mezcla perfecta.
