August 15, 2008, Newsletter Issue #280: Eye Shadow Shades

Tip of the Week

Brown skin tones look great with light pinks, tans, or even greens. If you like the light colors such as white for your eye shadow, which gives you a noticeable contrast then I would recommend trying a light pink eye shadow with a darker color in the outer corners of your eyes. A tan or almost cream shadow would also be a good choice, it will give a little more contrast than a normal brown and will still work well with your skin tone.

If you are feeling adventurous you could try a light green shadow with dark forest green eyeliner to accent your eye shadow.

As far as foundation goes, I would wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing. You can buy a sheer coverage foundation that will somewhat hide your freckles, but not look thick or “caked on”. Foundation basically is used to even out your skin tone and cover any imperfections you may have on your face. If you feel more comfortable with just powder then you should go with that option.
