Pale eye colors are entrancing and beautiful so, if you have them, consider yourself lucky! The only hiccup is that sometimes classic eye makeup shades like black and black-brown look too harsh against the lightness of the iris. To help you find a subtle way to naturally define your eyes without overpowering them, we've put together a handful of tips that will help you show off your green and blue eyes in all their glory!
Our tips for subtly defining your light eyes
When it comes to makeup, nothing is forbidden, however it's important to choose shades that complement your natural coloring. For example, if you have blue eyes, you'll want to avoid choosing a blue shadow that's very similar, otherwise the color of your eyes won't stand out as much. Instead, consider opting for "nude" palettes with a mix of shimmery and matte neutral shades. Using a combination of shades allows you to add depth and shadow only where you want it, keeping the rest of the lid light and bright!
Another alternative to intensify the eyes is using eyeliner. Whether by tightlining the product into the root of your lashes or creating a dramatic cat eye flick, liner is a great way to make sure all eyes are on yours! If black is too dramatic, consider opting for a brown shade to soften the look. Alternatively, new shimmery versions in gold, copper, and bronze will add a fashion-forward quality to the look!
Finally, opt for a brown or clear mascara to define your lashes without making them too dark.
And there you have it- the perfect makeup for light eyes!
