Four Ways to Wear Carbon Eyeshadow

Lightly above the crease to add just a little drama to any look without looking over done.

All over the lid for a deliciously rich and dark smoky eye in pure black.

To add depth to color by enriching the intensity and darkness. And matte texture always adds something special, too.

On the outer V, just to add smoke where there’s already fire…

Have you ever stared at the ever-lovely Goldmine eyeshadow wondering what you might pair it with? Here are six fun ways to use one of my favorite eyeshadows:

Paired with Golds and Orangey-Coppers, Goldmine helps to brighten any look.

To Make the Natural Easy, try using Goldmine as a way to add pop and color to subtle, natural shades of beige and brown.

Kick Up Your Look by pairing Goldmine with bright chartreuses and yellows for a very bold, summery eye.

Perfect For Diffusing Color when you’ve used a bold shade like blue, green, or teal. Try blending Goldmine just above the darkest color to help fade the color to your brow bone.

Try Lightening Darker Colors with Goldmine to get a unique color combination. Layering Goldmine over browns often gives you a nice mix of natural and shimmer.

Make Green, Not War by layering Goldmine over your favorite teal or blue shade. It is an easy way to get an amazing gradient of color going.

To Impersonate a Mermaid by using Freshwater with aquas and crystalline blues to evoke images of the ocean and siren calls.

Go Bold With No Regrets in a sinfully rich and dark smoky eye that’s all blue and nothing but. Shamelessly smothered in the hues of blue and navy blue for a night out!

Lightly In the Crease to help add just a *touch* of dimension and color.

Make a Smoky Eye Pop by turning gray to a gray-toned-blue. It’s an eye look without a lot of color, but it isn’t so monochromatic either.

With Teals because it goes so perfectly with them. Yep, blue with teal–obviously not for those afraid to wear some color!

To Create Jewel Tones with its richness in that perfect medium blue that’s dark and yet not overwhelmingly so. Pair it with greens and teals and aquas.

In the Crease to really amp up any look–it’s such an intense dark green, which makes it perfect for adding drama.

Get Neutrals to Pop by just adding a hint of the forest-y green shade amongst more neutral/natural shades.

To Complete Your Greens and round off your collection thereof. I know you have your pastels and your medium-spring-happy greens, but have you your more forboding, deep green?

Deep Smoky Greens with Humid to help intensify any green-themed smoky eye. Line with black to really make the colors stand out!

As a Liner to make a subtle eye pop or finishing a muted olive-green eye.

With Reflects Glitter to give you an almost shimmering-water-effect that is both stunning and irresistibly fun to try!

Pair It With Golds and you can never go wrong. Humid is an excellent match for any golden-toned shadows, be them gorgeous golds or warmer greens or antique browns.
