The Redhead Eyeshadow Palette

For this weeks blog post I am focusing on a redhead’s eyeshadow palette. Now if you are anything like me, then you’ve grown up hearing how good blues and greens look with your hair- how they just make it pop! And I’m not here to argue with that- when you see a redhead wearing a turquoise dress she looks stunning. However, eyeshadows are a whole different ball game.

The goal behind eyeshadows, and this goes for eyeliners as well, is to bring the eye color into focus. This is done by choosing a complementary opposite for your eye color. For example, if you have blue eyes you actually want to avoid blue eyeshadows.  If this isn’t revolutionary to you then kudos, you are in much better shape than I was ten years ago. Now, using the chart below, find you eye color (blue, green, hazel, brown etc.) and then look at the colors directly opposite- those are your complimentary opposites!

Now I’ll break it down:

Blue: golds, coppers, apricots, and burgundy. If you are indeed a redhead, avoid oranges like the plague!

Green: burgundy, purples, rose golds, and warm browns.

Hazel (green/blue): decide which color you want to bring out, green or blue? Then follow the list above.

Hazel (green/brown): coppers, burgundy, rose golds and purples.

Brown: blues, greens and golds.

Brown/black: you can wear pretty much anything and those eyes will pop, so go nuts!

So, what should you be wearing? Check out our eyeshadow collection here.

    I am so glad to finally find this post. Hardly anybody covers the topic of eyeshadow for a redhead’s eye colors. I’m also relieved to see that you’ve included my kind of “unusual” hazel (blue-green) eyes as well. So many fashion experts and other people tend to ignore that there are different eye colors than the typical blue, green, or brown.

    So, thank you once again! :)
