Best Eyeshadows for Fair Skin

Hey Everyone! Since you all seemed to love my post on the Best Blushes for Fair Skin : http://wp.me/p2O2wx-7P , I thought I would make a little series of similar posts. This one, as you can probably tell from the title, is about eyeshadows that I think look especially great on those of us with fair skin. Like I said before, fair skinned people can get away with wearing ANY color because we are such a “blank canvas”; but these are the shades that I find are the most universally flattering regardless of skin type/undertone/etc.

Bobbi Brown Candlelight / MAC Ricepaper : These are both great brightening lid colors. Candlelight is more champagne colored, and Ricepaper is more yellow.

Bobbi Brown Bone / MAC Brule : These are both almost invisible flesh tones. Bone is slightly more pigmented.

Urban Decay Tease / MAC Haux : These are both great mauve/brown colors that look amazing in the crease. Tease is moderately more purple.

Urban Decay Naked / Bobbi Brown Wheat / MAC Wedge : These are all neutral medium/light browns that are great for crease and blending. Naked is the most neutral, Wheat is cooler, and Wedge is warmer.

MAC Folie / Urban Decay Buck / NYX Dance The Tides : These are all warm medium browns. Folie is a reddened brown, Buck is a tan brown, and Dance the Tides has a warm copper/orange tint.

MAC Cork : is a unique warm medium brown thats great for the crease and brows.

MAC Shale : is a sheer muted cool purple. I think it is one of the most underrated MAC eyeshadows, I love it!

MAC Naked Lunch : looks much better on pale skin than All That Glitters. It is basically the same peachy pink color, just taken down a few notches.

NYX Tropical : is a great coral/orange shade that doesn’t overpower your whole look.

MAC Expensive Pink : is similar to NYX Tropical, but is much more pink.

Urban Decay Sin : a great frosted silky pink, without being too pink! Looks great on the lid or as a highlight.

Urban Decay Sidecar : is a warm light taupe/brown with heavy silver sparkle.

Urban Decay Darkhorse : is a warm charcoal that isn’t too cool or dark; which makes it a GREAT option for fair skin because it isn’t overpowering.

Urban Decay Toasted / MAC Sable : These are both warm pink/browns. Toasted is slightly pinker, and Sable is slightly more red toned.

MAC Big Bounce Shadow in Count Your Assets : is a a bright cool purple. Its great as a base or on its own. Although this product is discontinued, you can look for something similar. This is just what I have.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Blue Paradise : is a great color for pale people to rock, as most people can’t! It is a medium blue base with purple duochrome.

MAC Paint Pot in Morning Frost : is a slightly cool taupe/brown. This was limited edition, but again, you can easily find something similar.

 

What are your favorites?

 

 

Summer 2013 Maybelline Color Tattoos

Hey Everyone! A few days ago I came across the Summer 2013 Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos and had to pick up a few! There are eight colors in this collection and they are inspired by the sea. They are all shimmery/frosty and have varying levels of duo-chrome. The store I went to only had four colors left in stock, so if I come across the other four, I will do an additional post featuring those. Here are the ones I was able to pick up :

Blue Paradise : a cool denim blue with purple duo-chrome

Cool Crush : an icy light blue with slight pink and silver duo-chrome

Precious Pearl : a yellow cream with pink duo-chrome (very similar to MAC’s Motif eyeshadow)

Waves of White : an icy white with blue, green, and slight pink duo-chrome

You can get these at the drugstore for about $6.00 each

*Sarah’s Tips* These particular Color Tattoos are a bit more creamy than other ones I have tried, so I recommend using a primer underneath to prevent creasing.
