According to the website, Eye Make Up Tips, eyeshadow colours should be chosen based on the colour and shape of your eyes. Additionally, there are different types of eyeshadow consistency and form to consider before purchasing anything.

Eyeshadow for blue eys and blonde hair

Eye Make Up Tips notes that if you have blue eyes, you should avoid using blue eyeshadow. On the contrary, brown and taupe shadows are recommended. The Woman Junction website agrees that shadows darker than your eye colour are best for blue eyes. Woman Junction also suggests using silver or turquoise shadows to create a brightening effect on blue eyes.

Eyeshadow Consistency

There are four types of eyeshadow when it comes to consistency, according to Make Up and Beyond. Frosted eyeshadow, an opaque finish with a white/silver sparkle, can brighten eyes, but enhance wrinkles. Matt eyeshadow have a high concentration of colour and are good for defining eyes. Satin eyeshadow has more sparkle than a matt, but less than a frosted shadow. Shimmer eyeshadow highlights the eye with a hint of sparkle.

Forms of eyeshadow

The beauty website Aloette explains that, in addition to consistency, eyeshadow comes in a variety of forms: liquid, powder, and cream. Liquid eyeshadow can serve as a base for other types of eyeshadow as it is typically more translucent. Powder eyeshadow is applied using a brush and can be found in pressed or loose powder form. Aloette notes that cream eyeshadow is easy to apply with your finger or a make up sponge.
