How to Choose the Most Flattering Eyeliner for Your Skin Tone

You’ll appreciate how working with your skin tone can bring more emphasis to your eyes.

The Fall/Winter 2016-2017 eyeliner trend will be heavy on the black, ringing eyes dramatically with unmistakable thickness to creating extra wings.  Though black is the universal shade of liner that works for all, there always comes a time when you want to change the makeup look that you’re going for with one that is softer or just as bold through riveting color.  

Therefore, a no-fail way is by selecting shades that compliment your skin tone rather than your eye color. For instance, if you have fair skin with cool undertones, I suggest experimenting with dark gray or cool brown shades over warmer versions for a wonderful change of pace.   Metallic liners, whether silver or gold, also are fantastic for bringing some striking emphasis to your eyes in a unique way.

Fair to medium skin with warm undertones like mine look great with bronze, brighter navy to royal blues, eggplant, and deep green eyeliner colors.  

Dark complexions never seem to go wrong with bright, more vivid blues and turquoise for some beautiful contrast as well as golds and bronze for playing up their skin.  

Try these suggestions yourself for a striking way to bring out those gorgeous eyes!
