How to Choose Eye Shadow

Using eye shadow matching to your dress code is out of fashion now. Fair skin looks more attractive with pink eye shadow. Brown is suitable for wheatish skin. Golden brown is more suitable for black skin. Blue and green eye shadows can be used for evening parties. The new trend in party make up is to draw a thin line with the eyeliner over the eyelid and then use golden or silver eye pencil over it.

How to Choose Blusher

Even though Blusher usage has decreased to some extent, skin colours have more demand .Sand colours are more in demand now a days. Light pink colours can be used for fair skin. For dark skin, it is always recommended to avoid blushers. 

How to Choose Lipstick

Orange and Red-shades of pink is more suitable for fair skin.Plum, Burgundy, Grape can be used for wheatish skin and brown, chocolate for dark skin.

Long-lasting lipstick is not good for the skin. Apply foundation as the same shade as that of the lip and then use lip liner. This can be made more attractive with the use of liquid lipstick.
