Suppose you want to create a custom eyeshadow palette. In that case, it’s important to consider your skin tone and the colors that will look best on you. There are many beautiful palettes to choose from, but it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. In this blog post, I will show you how to choose an eyeshadow palette based on your skin tone and eye color to look your best.
Pick the right custom eyeshadow palette.
Below are some tips so you can choose an accurate, customized eyeshadow palette for yourself.
Look at your skin tone.
The primary factor determining whether an eyeshadow will look good on you is what kind of undertones your skin has. There are three prominent undertones: cool, warm, and neutral. You can determine which category you fall into by looking at yourself in natural lighting without makeup or asking someone else who knows what they’re doing!
Your skin and hair color will affect how well specific colors look on you. For example, light-skinned people can wear blue eyeshadows and bright purples. In contrast, darker-skinned people might look better in browns and oranges.
If the light hits your face just right when you’re not wearing foundation or concealer, a subtle hue should show through. This is called an “undertone.” It’s like an underlying color. If this color looks bluish or greenish, then chances are good that your skin has cool undertones. If it looks yellowish or reddish, it is good that your skin has warm undertones. Finally, if there’s no discernible hue showing through at all, then chances are good that your skin tone falls somewhere between warm and cool, determined by how much red shows up against yellow
In addition to neutrals, you can opt for other shades that look like a natural shadow. These palettes are good for daytime wear because they don’t require much blending or effort.
For example, if your eyeshadow palette has four colors:
- A shimmery champagne-colored highlighter
- A matte beige in the crease and lower lid
- A matte taupe in the outer corner of your eye
- A metallic bronze shadow on your eyelid
You can wear bolder eye makeup with green or purple shades in formal attire. Green is the color of nature and is associated with tranquility and peace. The color purple symbolizes royalty and wealth. These colors will make your eyes look brighter as they contrast against the dark skin tone. You can wear shimmery shades of these colors for daytime and formal events. Try matte shades for evening parties.
If you want to wear brighter colors, such as bright blue or green, use them sparingly with a touch of glitter. This will add some sparkle and make the color pop even more. You can also use this color in the inner corner of your eyes or your brow bone for a little highlight. Be careful not to go overboard, or you will look like you got punched in the eye!
If you have blue eyes, brown is a good choice because blue and brown are opposite ends of the spectrum. If you have green eyes, purple and dark pink are the perfect colors. For dark eyes like black or brown, we recommend using more neutral colors like nude or grey on the outer corners of your eye.
The best thing about a custom eyeshadow palette is that you can get your desired colors. You may even find that some colors work better than others, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
