I have really pale skin so I was wondering what makeup would look good on me. I really try to play up my blue eyes, but to much makeup on my skin makes me look really over done, and when I try smokey eyes I end up looking very racoon-ish. What are some colors or style ls that might look good on me? Pictures welcome!
Light brown, peach, bronze, light blue (trust me, it works - linklink pale pink, orange, yellow ( link ... link - this is an excellent example of how you can accentuate your eye color (with a pencil eyeliner on the bottom lash line, and a contrast color shadow on your upper lid)...
I like colors! x)
---it would really help to know which shade of blue are your eyes.
(btw, I also have really pale skin and dark blue eyes)
You probably don't want to go with dark colors - in general. I don't wear make-up myself, but based on what I found on You-Tube, you probably want to go with using a foundation to make your skin look like it's colored evenly.
Unfortunately, I can't post the links for you, but you can search for some make-up tips on youtube.
I have blue eyes and fair skin as well. I use a ton of different looks that turn out pretty well. I always use a pink blush and a dusty pink lip gloss. Now for the eyes I have two different looks.
I use a neutral whitish color all over my lids, then use an angled brush for my crease/lash line with either a dark purple color or a deep brown. If you want it to be more fun, try blue, green, or any other bright color. Always finish with mascara.
I use the same base color. Then I take a medium brown or purple and apply it to the lid. After that, I take a much darker color (could be any dark color, really) and use that on the crease and wing it out, from the lash line. I then use a black or blue eyeliner as close to my lashes as possible and finish with mascara. It always looks good and is quite easy to do.
Hope this helps!
P.S. Physicians formula is the best brand I've seen that matches up colors for blue eyes. Their eyeliner and shadow is excellent.
I have a very pale skin with dark blue eyes too, like you. Peach tones don't really work for most really pale/fair girls, but light pinks (as a blush or on your lips) are very pretty. I always use black mascara and a little winged black eyeliner too accentuate my eyes, and when I go out I sometimes line my waterline with a white eyepencil and put a little bit of high lighter on the corners of my eyes. I don't really like eyeshadow, but I think colors like MAC's blue orbit look good on blue eyes! blue orbitt -> link
Light green eye liner and a light eye shadow might look nice. Try lighter colors overall.
earth tones would be nice. browns, greens, hazels
Don't wear foundation that's any shade darker than your normal skin color. It'll look really bad. Try some peachy or rosey blush, but not one that's too dark for your skin.
To avoid that raccoon look don't line the bottom of your eyes with dark eyeliner an don't put dark eye shadow down there either. Also, try some eye shadows that would make your eyes pop, such as light pink, brown, gold, purple, and maybe even green. You'll have to find out which colors look best on you. If you want your eyes to be the focus point of your face then remember not to make your lips too standout-ish.
If you'd like your lips to be the main focus of your face then make your eyes very subtle by just wearing mascara and eyeliner and for your lips whatever color you'd like. But, if you have yellow-ish teeth when you wear really red lip stick then try something with a blue undertone or a purple one because that'll make your teeth seem whiter.
