Turn Around Bright Eyes

Everyone has their tried and true makeup routine that allows you to be out the door in the morning without much thought. The staple act of applying your usual beiges and neutrals is a comforting habit, but why not take an extra 60 seconds to swipe some excitement into your day?

Bright and bold eye shadows have been all the rage this summer, and only takes a few more minutes to make your eyes pop. An investment in some colors that will suit your eyes are guaranteed to bring you right into the fall this year, seeing as many cosmetics companies are putting a huge emphasis on bold eye color. Don’t know what the best bet is for your eye color? Well, you are just in luck because I have done extensive and professional research in this area (aka I am a magazine addict).

Blue Eyes: Try a silver, turquoise or gray, because all three will bring out the depth of your color. Blue eyes change hues so easily that whichever shadow you use will totally alter your look for the day.

Perfect Color:
Trish McEvoy “Double Platinum Diamond” $22

Brown Eyes: You lucky brown-eyed girls can wear nearly every shade of shadow, but purple and navy contrast the dark color of your eyes the most, which make them look larger. I personally love brushing some navy liner over my black for an unexpected swipe of color.

Perfect Color:
Urban Decay “Retrograde” $20

Green and Hazel Eyes: Gold shadows will bring out the flecks in your eyes, while any shade of green will make them seem brighter. If you’re feeling particularly bold, try a pink! The green and red color families are complementary.

Perfect Color:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics “Flawed” $12

For an all-over wash of color, I use the BC400 Large Eye Shader because it distributes the color perfectly without getting the loose shadow all over my face.

When I want to get that pop in the corners of my eyes, I use the BC430 Pencil Crease and when I use the shadow as a liner the BC450 is absolutely perfect!
