Reds and brighter pinks. My eyes are usually red, so the last thing i want to do is draw attention to that!

Black, blue, and really dark colors in general. My eye color is really dark brown (you can’t see my pupils), and my undereye circles are pretty bad, this means dark eyeshadows make me look exhausted more than anything. Pity, because I love smokey eyes, but I’m not always willing to wear colored contacts for it. >:

Every eyeshadow color I truly love is actually extremely flattering on me. I have very neutral coloring (hair, skin, and eyes), so with the exception of pastels, which I don’t care for, I can pull anything off. I tend to forgo warmer shades, not because they don’t work for me, but because I just don’t really like them, as colors, and they don’t mesh with my overall aesthetic.

Bright blues! I usually wear a red lip, and I have found that bright blue eyeshadow with red lipstick looks clowny on me almost always (bright blue eyeshadow seems to only really be suited for nude, purple, or pink lipsticks?). I can usually comfortably pull off a teal/aqua blue, bright or dark, but because I’m almost always in a red lip.. bright blue never really looks good.

One time I wore MAC Humid all over my eyes. My bf at the time said I looked like someone had punched me in the face. I’ve avoided dark greens ever since 😛

Completely cool silver + black + icy pink combinations, completely cool midnight blue, greigey-taupey colours (always chalky on me), completely cool pine green, soft (greyed) lilac and mauve, warm, reddish browns (muddy on me), warm light gold and peach, camel and orange!

I think bright silvers can look good on, but on me it looks trashy. Actually the majority of shades on the cooler end of the spectrum (purple, blue, silver) are things that I like in the pan but can’t really figure out how to use.

Acid green. I usually like the combination with purple but on me it doesn’t look good.
I also like coppers but not on me…


I love green, but have to be very careful on shade selection. They can really make my skin look sallow. I love love grassy green..but yikes! 🙁

There are 3 eyeshadows from mac to the beach collection that I love, but don’t look good on me, shimmermoss, sweet and punchy and humid. I try so hard to make them work, but nothing. At the begining thay look fine, but later on the day, the white part of my eyes gets like pink/red color. I never can’t use green colors, I love them but they don’t agree with me.
