Eye Shadows to Brighten Your Eyes For All Skin Tones

Eye-Brightening Tricks For All Skin Tones

Last night, the celebrities taught a lesson in eye-brightening makeup techniques. Michelle Trachtenberg, Selita Ebanks, and Vanessa Hudgens were all spotted with illuminating shadow shades that can work on all skin tones.

Fair Skin: If you have a fair complexion, a white eyeliner like Shu Uemura's Eye Light Pencil White ($19) is a must have for your eye makeup kit. At Madonna's Fashion Evolution Pop-Up Exhibit, Michelle wore a shimmering shade on the bottom corners of her eyes, which was blended with royal blue liner underneath. Also, try applying the liner in the lower waterline to get a doe-eyed effect.

Medium Skin: For medium skin tones, take a note from Vanessa Hudgens's makeup look also from Madonna's Fashion Evolution Pop-Up Exhibit. She wore a pearlescent shadow like L'Oréal Infallible Eyeshadow in Endless Pearl ($7) on the inner corners of her eye and underneath. The iridescent shadow balances the inky black of her eyeliner and offers a brightening effect.

Dark Skin: At the Nylon cover celebration Selita Ebanks proved that dark lipstick can (and should) be worn in the Spring, but to counter the deep hue, she wore a shimmering taupe shadow like Trish McEvoy Eye Shadow in White Peach ($18) from her lash line to her brows. It's the ideal color to draw light to the eyes on darker complexions.
