I have a wedding in August and I need some advice on what eye shadow look I should wear. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am in my early 50′s, (so I don’t want a look that is too wild and crazy…LOL!), I have blond hair and olive green eyes. The dress that I am wearing is black on the top and the bottom part is a light gold with a black sheer lace overlay. (picture down below, hope you can see it) I am wearing black high heels with it.
Plums/purples do look really good with my eye color but I was wondering should I wear maybe a gold and black look? Or even a green look to match my eyes? I don’t want to go out and buy any new makeup. I have UD Naked 1 palette, Too Faced Natural and Romantic Eye Palettes, a whole bunch of drug store stuff, Estee Lauder palettes….so I think I could get a look from that. Also, if you could tell me what color for my cheeks and lips that would be great!!
Thanks so much,

I wouldn’t go full-on black/gold with the makeup, personally, but I like the idea of something neutral.
Since you have Naked 1 (and I also own it), I’m going to work from that. Naked on the lid, Smog on the outer part of the eye and up into the crease, with a little bit of Darkhorse to intensify the outer corner. Darkhorse also on the upper and lower lashline. (Or you could skip Smog altogether and just use Darkhorse for the outer corner.) Virgin to highlight the browbone, if you have enough space for that. (If you don’t, just use a little in the inner corner.)
Cheeks, perhaps a bit of a neutral pink? Or even a peachy-pink. Lips, a soft pink (something like Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Petal).June 26, 2012 at 7:44 am #178211
great!!! Thanks so much, I am definitely going to try that and since the dress has a goldish undertone to it, that look sounds perfect.

I would go for a very classic look, use the Naked palette to do a wash of a pale color (Virgin) use Buck or Naked in the crease to give depth, and do winged black liner. If you’re used to gel liner or liquid, go for that, otherwise use the darker shadow in the palette and an angled brush to line the lashline and create a flick.
Then add a red lipstick, and you’ll be a classic beautyJuly 2, 2012 at 2:35 pm #179327
I can’t seem to do a winged eyeliner on myself, it comes out terrible I have the gel liner and liquid and no matter how many times I try, it comes out real bad. Any tips on how to get it to come out good?July 2, 2012 at 5:38 pm #179394
I think plums, purples (not bright) and eggplant colors would look stunning with this. Those colors also work wonderfully for bringing out green eyes as well. As far as wing eyeliner, practice and see if you can get it, once you do it’s easy. Check out youtube there are a lot of videos on there about how to wing your eyeliner.
