- Green shadows in makeup should be avoided. They either merge in color with a tint of eyes, or they will negate the greenish tint, making the eyes gray or blue.
- Lavender, gray-beige, gray, and cornflower-blue are well suited as medium tones in makeup.
- Shades of all shades of brown, copper and gold look winning. And such colors as opal, beige, champagne, creamy are almost indispensable when creating light day makeup. Terracotta will give your eyes an emerald hue. An interesting combination is obtained if you play with purple shadows.
