The Colors of Chameleons: 20 Eyeshadow Color Combos for June

June’s birthstones include pearl, moonstone, and alexandrite. For this month’s color combinations, I’ve taken inspiration from pearls with their softer, luminous sheen along with iridescent or duochromatic nature of many of their hues (since they come in a variety of colors!)–freshwater pearls are often lighter, more pastel, while Tahitian pearls tend to be darker, ranging from green to purple to black. Moonstones seem almost translucent at times with a lot of bluish, iridescent shine. Alexandrite is a true color-changing gem that appears red to purple-red in incandescent light and green to bluish-green in daylight.

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease or lid.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

I love these kinds of posts! Side note, what eyeshadow is second from the bottom in the thumbnail collage? I’ve looked through all the shades listed in the post but can’t seem to figure out which one that is!
