Neutral Brown Makeup for a Professional Evening Event

On The Coruscating Dragon

As you can tell by now, I like shimmer shades! I'm an NC 37 in MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation with warm-neutral undertones and with my rabbit brown eyes, I think it just looks good one me (of course this is MY opinion, you may think differently and I don't mind hearing back.) Now of course, with age, we're supposed to lessen the use of frost, shimmer and the like, but I believe it depends on your technique, lid type and the product. I tend not to use frost and if I want some sparkle, I prefer shimmer, satin, or fine glitter. Here are a few good references on eye shapes and eyeshadow textures, which are important (as they may help you go a long way with improving eye design techniques.)

Robert Jones Academy Eye Shapes (an interactive guide)

Beautylish article - What's Your Eye Shape (examples with celebrities)

MakeupTutorials article - Types of Eyeshadow + How to Apply Them (sorry, lots of ads)

The Fancy Face - Tips for Beginners...Eyeshadow Finishes & Textures (dated and based on MAC eyeshadows, but one of the best I've found because she shows the products on the skin.)
