Need some spring makeup advice!

Hi there. I really want a new makeup look for spring. I'm very pale, blue eyes, brown hair and want to try something besides my normal brown eye shadow. I'm thinking about a light blue? I've seen very light eyeshadows (like white), but how do you wear them? Would they even look good on me since I'm fair-complected? I'm also considering grey eyeliner. I guess I really just need a lot of help with eye makeup...colors, colors, colors! Would a bronzer look good on me even though I'm super-pale?

Hi!

Where do you live? If you would like to have a makeover done so you can try out the Spring colors I may know someone in your area that you could contact and get a complimentary facial and makeover:)

I would suggest trying some of the cosmetics websites. Many of them have tools that recommend shades and have application tips. Cover Girl, Loreal, and Neutrogena all have wonderful shade recommenders. I like to go light in the spring -- pastel colors, shimmery eyeshadows and glossy lips w/matching sheer nail colors. The product websites are:

www.covergirl.com

www.neutrogena.com

www.lorealparis.com

Hi!

My best advice, I would get Almay light eyes. With blue eyes it should work great. It brings out your eye color and doesnt stand out, it looks natural and lighter than a brown, which gives a spring look I think.

I hope that helps ya out!
