Looking for some new eyeshadows and wondering what other pale blue eyed women wear that you find suits you? I'm quite pale also have freckles so tend to wear warm/neutral/copper colours but can look a bit washed out at times! Also looking for colours/brands that are long lasting as I have oily eyelids ( tho not oily skin) and find eye makeup can slide off me...

Any ideas gratefully received! 👁😀

Urban Decay Primer Potion for Eyes will help keep most shadow on brilliantly.

In terms of colour, I've experimented and the boring neutrals, taupes, browns coppers, gold, etc really do look best but you have to find the right tone. Grey washes me out and bright colours look garish. A warm pink, peach/melon or browny pink can look good too.

I have worn quite bright orange and even red eye shadow before and they both looked quite cool but are quite a statement!

I go with coppers too so not much help. Goldy colours look nice.

Neutral taupes and browns for day time

Slate grey and silver for evening

Black brown mascara (rather than pure black) mascara

Thanks for all the ideas. I guess what I'm really looking for is which specific makes of eyeshadow you really love? There's loads is different brands out there and I'm looking for something that is quite striking and long lasting?

I love MAC for strong pigmentation and easy to blend powder

Benefit 'My Two Cents' is a rich golden copper which is great for night time and stays on greasy lids.

MAC paint pots are good. Paintetly is lovely for day with a different crease colour too.

I use a Pixi brand palette I've had for ages at the moment, don't know colour names but will try to find out.

It's quite shimmery but MAC pigment in Melon is nice and stays on forever with the UD primer.
