When it comes to shadow, the lighter and more neutral the color on the lid, the better. You can’t go wrong with a selection from the Colour Riche Eye Shadows (we love the Army Brat palette!), which combines 4 pre-selected shadows that work together seamlessly. Blend slightly darker, warm hues into and above the crease, and dab a shimmery illuminator, like Magic Lumi Highlighter, on the brow bone and inner eye corner to open up the area.
Save the bright and cool colors for the lips or days when you can brave contact lenses—these shades will magnify dark undertones around the eyes, causing them to look tired and swollen.
