Best Colours for Warm Skin Tone

If you have green or golden undertones, your skin is warm. You’re also likely to have a warm skin tone if you have darker hair. You want to focus on red and orange shades if you want a warmer smoky eye look. For a cooler smoky eye, you want to gravitate towards green and blue hues. Our smoky eyeshadow palette offers you an olive metallic, which you can use to create a smoky eye with darker shades.

Best Colours for Cool Skin Tone

If you have blue undertones to your skin, you have a cool skin tone. The best colors to focus on for creating a smoky eye are vibrant jewel tones, which you’ll find in our eyeshadow palette. You can build a smoky eye around magenta pink shades if you want a feminine look. Other shades that you should look out for include neutral colors like grey and white.

With a cool skin tone, you want to stay away from orange and yellows and instead focus on pastels. For a pop of color, our Glitter Berry palette can offer you six different shades of pinks to purples. 

 

Best Colours for Neutral Skin Tone

Sometimes, your skin tone doesn’t lean to either warm or cool undertones. If you’re struggling to work out which side you line up with, you likely have a neutral skin tone.

For a smoky eye, you want to focus on neutral colours. Our smoky eyeshadow palette has three light metallic pinks that you can choose from to create a flattering look.

If you want a pop of colour, the Glitter Berry palette offers you more pastel shades to choose from. You can wear anything from the pinks and purples through to the neutral browns. With a neutral skin tone, you want to avoid wearing yellow and red hues.

   

We hope this colour guide has helped you worked out how to create the perfect smoky eye and shown you which pop of colors will work best for you.
