What is the best color of eyeshadow for blue eyes?

First, never use a blue shadow. Stick with coffee colors and browns, but don't go chocolate.


Your hair color also makes a difference. See below for best.

Brown hair- Use a gentle pink, but do NOT go red or heavy, you will seem tired. Do a silver for night

Blond hair- Light cocoa for daytime, go gold for a night on the town

Red hair- Gentle golden for day. Mix a silver/pink for evening


Eyeshadow: Be dramatic with black or dark charcoal, pewter, too, has has a dramatic affect when contrasting blue eyes. Add to the appeal of lighter shades of blue by outlining them with a dark navy. Gain a more playful appeal with shades of peach, plum or bright berries. Even silver can work well darker hues of blue.

Where can one purchase red India Ink?

KIDS DONT TRY THIS AT HOME!!Well now, first off if you find a product labeled 'RED India ink", you are being hoaxed, there is no such thing as RED India ink, by definition India ink is only black.....You may see it in packages labeled as that but in actuality it probably is just a permanent pigment in color....And if yer tempted to buy this stuff to do tattoos with ........BE WARNED, they often contain chemicals that keep them in suspension or even helps them to dry quicker.....AND most of the chemicals they use for this are either poisonous or have and acid base, not good for skin..............


seek out a professional and you may become a collecter of fine tattoo art, do it yerself at home and you may get a hangover that NEVER goes away..............

Yes I think blues and the greens are going to suit your look very much.

I would use gold to make your eyes stand out and to complment your hair.


Light blues or greens might wash out the colors in your eyes. Definitely use golds in coppery tones and browns. This will make your eyes stand out much more.

There are two reasons why you shouldn't.

First is safety. Eye shadow is made specially so if you get it in your eye it won't injure you. Blush PROBABLY won't injure you, but eye shadow definitely won't. They also put antimicrobial agents in eye shadow to keep harmful eye bacteria from growing in it that blush doesn't need, or have.

The other is staying power. The places you put blush don't move very much. The places you put eye shadow are in constant motion. They have to put chemicals in eye shadow to make them stick to your skin that they don't put in blush. (This is also why eye makeup is harder to get off than blush.)

You can get pink eye shadow at any store, and if you want to wear pink on your eyes that's what to use.

Do the light purple on your lids to complamint your eyes, the light blue on your eye crease to complamint your dress and the color close to your skin tone by you brow to make your eyes pop.

Eye Shadow

How do you put on eyeliner?

Solid eyeliner: Hold the eyeliner and close a single eye. Put the tip of the liner between both eyelids (don't worry, it doesn't hurt-just don't poke yourself in the eye) and make a mark at the very beginnings of your eyelashes.

Liquid eyeliner: In a single stroke, paint on the rim of your eyelashes. Beware, the mark of the eyeliner spreads out farther than it looks like it will, so actually draw ON the eyelashes. Liquid eyeliner smears, so let it settle for a bit before opening your eye. Also, be aware that liquid eyeliner is much more noticeable than solid, so if you make a mistake, wash it off and try again.

AnswerI use solid eyeliner, therefore I don't know if this will help you, but the kind I use is Perfect Point Plus by Covergirl in 200 Onyx, so I recommend that. So here's what you do.

1) Close one eye and hold the eyeliner in a hand on the opposite side.

2) Put it as close to the beginning of your eyelashes as possible, and make a thin line across. Do the same to the other eye. If you need help making a straight line, make small dots with the eyeliner and connect the dots!

3) If you want to put it on the bottom, you can put it on more of the inside for a look that defines your eyes or on the outside for a different look.

4) So, far the bottom, gently pull down on the skin below your eyes, and take your eyeliner and slide it across. Just be sure not to put it over your tear ducts or you'll get black eye boogers which are gross :-(

If you need more help just message me (LiL_AcTrEsSx3)

Answerwhat I do is apply it to the bottom part of my eye. I pull down the skin on the botton lid and put a line on it. It makes my eyes look really thin and sophisticated. Hope it works for you!

What i do is i pretend like im putting contacts on and pul the skin below my eye down look up a little and draw iline on my water line

What are some tips to becoming a better bowler?

Practice and lots of it. I used to bowl 10 leagues a week, two leagues a night, 5 days a week and was a substitute 6 out of the 10 leagues. bowled for money (pot bowl) on the weekends and that's what paid for my regular leagues for the next week. I started out with about a 140 average and was at one time holding a 202 average. My high game was a 290, 11 strikes in a row which was really good back in the late 80's early 90's. So, Practice often and concentration is definitely a must. Good Luck & Good Bowling!!!

What are good eye shadow blush and lip colors to use on medium brown skin?

I really can't give specific recommendations without knowing your natural eye color, natural hair color, and undertone of your skin, since there are many kinds of brown-skinned people that look good in different colors.

If you have black hair and dark brown, green, or blue eyes, are are of European, African, middle-eastern, or east Indian decent, you would probably look best with gray, blue, or purple eyeshadow, rosy blush, and dark cool reds for the lip.

If you have black or brown hair and brown eyes, and are of native American or east Asian descent, you may look better with brown or gray eye shadow, coral or salmon blush, and brownish-reds for the lip.

If you have light hair and are deeply tanned, with blue or green eyes, you should try blue or lavender eye shadow, rose blush, and rose lips. If you have hazel or brown eyes, you should try tan or rose eyeshadow, coral blush, and coral lips.

Basically, if your hair and eyes are cool and your skintone is ashy or rosy, use cool colors. If your hair and eyes are warm and your skintone is coppery or golden, use warm colors. With brown skin, you'll probably look best in medium to dark colors, unless your skin is brown because of tanning.

AnswerHi there! I hope I can help you, since I seem to have the same tone with you. For darker skinned people, like us, you want to use more natural colors. Bright pinks, purples, and corals may look good on others, but don't really compliment our skin. I like using a light dusty brown for my eyes. WARNING: If you put too much on, it will look like you put brown eye liner all over your eyes. Just softly tap the brush into the eye shadow and brush it across your eye lid. I don't like to really put very much eye shadow above my eye lid. Second, for lip colors I hardly use anything. Something with a little touch of a fruity red will look good on our lips. But not like a coral red, or red red. Lots of lip colors don't seem to stand out and looks as good on darker skinner people than lighter skinned. Some of my make-up suggestions are: Bronze Goddess eyeshadow by Estee Lauder. Backstage Beauty Browns by Bonne Bell. Good luck!
