What is the best shade of eyeshadow for someone with blue gray eyes and a warm, fair skin tone? Or do you coordinate with your clothing colors?
There are different ideas about using warm colors against warm skin versus using contrasting colors.

Wow that's an interesting combo: blue-grey eyes with fair but warm skin. How lovely. I'm thinking bronze eye shadow with a hint of orange tone to it to contrast the eyes, but really any shimmery neutral would look fabulous from champagne to smokey dark grey.

Can you share the particular brand and product you use? Sounds so pretty!

Well I have tried bunch of cranberry shadow and found the expensive lines do it better and will last for years for me - Chanel in exotique - and there is a great waterproof liner by Chanel called Grenat which is kinda a cranberry/brown which really makes blue eyes pop. Eye makeup is the only makeup I splurge on - just because I cant seem to find my colors in the cheaper brands.

Revlon also has a quad called Vin Rose for a cheaper version. With cranberry you have to use a very light hand or you will end up looking bruised.

Whats your foundation shade and hair color?


I think hair color affects what you can wear too. You could always just get a cheap palette set and see what you like:

Coastal Scents: Eye Palette - All Palettes - Makeup

They are having a sale so I thought it was worth a mention.

Usually avoid cool toned colors if you have warm skin. But some may kinda work if you are pale enough.

As for whatever you are wearing I think that is just personal preference. I don't use a lot of color if my outfit is colorful and vice versa.

Thank you for the link. Foundation is a warm or neutral light shade. I'm an "autumn". Hair is colored close to pre-grey natural shade of light brown with gold and red highlights. Used to wear putty eyeshadow or yellowy brown, but now, getting older, some say I look "tired" when I wear brown eyeshadow. Gee, maybe what's really needed is an eye-lift!

I like neutrals or a smoky eye. It really makes the blue-grey eyes pop.

Go to MAC and check out the eyeshadow called "sable". It is a medium-shiney-bronzey brown with warm undertones perfect for blue eyes and warm skin combo. I have brown eyes and warm skin and wear it because its a great color but the makeup artist I usually go to at MAC says he recommends the shade for blue eyes.
