Lately it’s been Urban Decay’s Midnight 15…from the UD Anniversary Palette. Hint of sparkle yet still appropriate for work!

If I had blue eyes, I’d love to wear gold. But it always just looks brassy against my eyes and skin tone.
So I tend to stick to nudie matte browns. You know–Buck, etc. I do love shimmers and pearls and the rest, but I usually go for the lips instead of the eyes!

I adore red eyeshadow and anything red based, so I love oranges and corals as well. Reds and oranges right the way around the eye looks gorgeous to me. After reds, I like blues. Mostly true, bright medium blues.

I’m a sucker for smoky eyes so I tend to go towards blacks, greys, charcoals, silvers, golds. If I wear color, I usually find a way to incorporate black into it (as a base, in the crease, as a liner, etc.

Champagne-like colors are definitely my favorite to wear! Shadows like Stila Kitten, UD Sin, and UD Midnight Cowboy (the shadow pencil version) are colors I always go nuts for. They’re glamorous and pretty without ever being overdone.

When I feel a bit more daring with color once in a while, I gravitate towards greens and golds.

Golds are my favorite to wear! I have hazel eyes, so its the most flattering color for them. My favorite gold eyeshadow is Urban Decay’s Baked 🙂

I love oranges, corals and purples; they seem to enhance more my blue eyes. I also love golds but I find that color a bit difficult to apply….

I definitely love neutrals, and taupes are my favorite. They encompass such a wide range of types of colors, so it’s never boring.

The #1 favorite varies, but Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl and Midnight Cowboy Rides Again and Grifter and Cherry, MAC Creamy Bisque, Groundcover, Dazzlelight, and Blanc Type, and Stila Gold Glow and Bronze Glow trios are some of my top shadows.

i love wearing mac amber lights with a neutral everyday look, amped up weekend look, or smokey-eyed paired with black for a night out look. golds are so easy to wear alone, as a highlight, or all over — they’re extremely versatile and wearable in every season. it stands alone as the best gold mac shadow imo, but i frequently pair it with all that glitters and ricepaper.

I really like to wear a champagne shade all over the lid. It’s very simple and I think it really brightens the eyes. I also love browns and purples. Teals are lovely as well.
