If for some reason I was given the extreme challenge to pick only ONE eyeshadow from the hundreds that I own (no exaggeration) for my work makeup kit that had to work beautifully on every skin tone and eye color…
including blue eyes
and green eyes
and hazel eyes
and light brown eyes
and medium brown eyes
and dark brown eyes…
I would choose an amber color eye shadow! No, not brown, bronze, copper or gold but the perfect amber. It’s so beautiful and flattering on every eye color and skin tone. It creates a striking contrast against blue and green eyes (it’s all Color Theory babydollz! Remember art class? Take a look at a color wheel to find your complementary colors). On hazel and brown eyes it really draws out all the little gold & orange flecks and makes eyes appear lighter. You can’t go wrong with an amber shade whether the texture & finish is a soft matte, shimmer or a powerful pigment. Wear it alone swiped on the lid for a very simple look or quickly smoke it out by adding a dark brown eye liner smudged out on the lash line. You just can’t go wrong with this must-have, go-to, perfect eye color!
Here are some of my faves:
