How Eye Shadow Shades Look On Different Skin Tones

If you're into beauty and enjoy a shopping spree, you probably enjoy shopping for makeup. IMO, one of the most fun products to shop for is eye shadow – there are so many types to choose from – but it's sometimes hard to find makeup to suit your skin tone. It's easy to get carried away when shopping for makeup, especially when it comes to eye shadow. Being surrounded by a plethora of shadows is akin to being a sweet-toothed kid in a candy shop: You want them all and you can't possibly pick just one.

There are powdered types, shimmery shadows, creamy ones, and glitter infused eye shadows. Then there's the rainbow of colors that are available to us nowadays. We are lucky enough to be able to match or contrast our makeup to our clothes if we so desire. Although there are definitely no rules when it comes to fashion and beauty, we all have our personal preferences and some people feel that different colors suit their personality, their mood, or their coloring better than others. After being blonde for most of my life, I dyed my hair brown and I felt my makeup that suited my blonde locks, no longer suited me as a brunette. So I changed up my eye shadow to suit my new 'do.

So in case you're curious how a certain color might look on your skin, check out how these eye shadow shades look on different skin tones.
