Even if you’re a pro when it comes to choosing eyeshadow shades that complement your eye color (all you need is a color wheel!), getting it right every time isn’t guaranteed. There are so many hues, it’s sometimes hard to choose a perfect match. But if you’re looking for a go-to shadow that’ll work every time, pick up a shimmery, silvery taupe shade.
Glamour magazine’s beauty blog spotted the eyeshadow on Halle Berry at the recent Cloud Atlas premiere, and it made her dark eyes simply radiant. But the cool neutral would work well on a multitude of other skin tones and eye colors, from ivory with blue eyes to ebony with brown eyes.
Pick up a shade like Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in Moonstone, and apply it after lining your eyes with brown, black or gray eyeliner as usual. Sweep it across your lids, under your lower lash lines and in the inner corners of your eyes. You’ll find that it has a brightening effect, which helps make your peepers look huge! You could even use it as a highlighter on your brow and cheek bones for extra glow.
