Eyeshadows are available in a kaleidoscopic range of colors. However, it is very easy to get stuck in a rut believing that because you have blue eyes you should only use blue eyeshadows. There are no hard and fast rules about which colors
should be used with eyes of different colors: try experimenting with new colors, but always use shadows that are within the same color group and complement one another. This will also help you blend and soften the colors easily.

Pearly Shades
These are used for highlighting the brow bone to open up the eye area or for creating a shimmering, frosted effect. If your eyelids are particularly crepcy, avoid shadows that arc too pearly, they will easily become very creased.

Matte Shades
Give a smooth, flat effect. Darker shades help “retreat” eyes, and lighter ones “advance” them. Try blending a dab of pearly eyeshadow on top of a matte shade as a way of experimenting with more adventurous colors.
