Anybody good with colours? I need ideas for eye make up that will go with turquoise *and* pink/purple

I have two different outfits and not enough time to re-do all my make up! I can re-do lips but won't have enough time to completely change the eyes. It's for a dance competition, so I'll be fake tanned.

I start off with ballroom in fucshia and purple then change into turquoise/aqua for Latin. I used to have a blue ballroom dress so it was easier!

Are there any colours/styles that would work do you think? I've tried smoky, but it doesn't look right - it's too 'night out' while my dresses are quite bright. Unless there's a lighter type of smoky I could try?

May I suggest gold, I know gold goes with green and it obviously looks great with purple too, Cadburys dairy milk! 🍫 😂 I would do a smoky golden eye. I'm thinking true gold with browny gold in the crease and lined with a nice bronze dark gold/brown.

Alternatively if you don't like browns how about grey? Either a silver or darker one, perhaps with some sparkly with it? A nice smokey eye?

I will have a go at both, thank you. I know I have a nice gold/brown palette somewhere that I've hardly used. Perhaps smoky will will work if it's more silvery than grey - it's looked too dark when I've done it 'normally'.

I feel like I've chosen two colours that are a bit tricky together grin I'll post a swatch later so you can see!
