  1. Great post! But don’t you also have to consider hair color when thinking about eye shadow colors? I used to be a blonde (and I have hazel eyes) and pink shades used to look wonderful on me! Once I went brunette ( a dark brown) the pink looked awful! What do you think?

  2. Robin, you’re right, the hair color should also be considered. You can try green eyeshadow with brown hair and hazel eyes. You will definitely look great! A nice thing to try is PUPA Multi-Effect Baked Eye-Shadows Duo LUMINYS #50 – there are dark green and green-yellowish shadows which you can use separately, mix and apply differently depending on your eye shape. These eyeshadows are really shimmering, which is great for summer.
