Which eye shadow color to choose?

🌱  Depending on the color of your eyes

🤎 For brown eyes, it's super simple! Indeed, most of the colors have a very nice rendering. The most flattering colors are still plum or purple eyeshadows that will bring out your beautiful brown eyes.

💙 Which eye shadow color is ideal for blue eyes?

Brighten them up with bronze, terracotta and orange hues. To accentuate the clarity of your eyes, opt for eye shadows in nude, ash or chocolate color.

💚 In order to highlight green eyes, go for pink and purple shades, which will be ideal to make them stand out!

Finally for gray eyes, fall for charcoal and silver shades that will illuminate your eyes in the blink of an eye. 😉

🌱  Depending on your skin tone

Our second tip will be to determine your skin color. If you have sensitive skin that blushes easily in the sun, you have fair skin. On the other hand, if your skin is rarely prone to sunburn and which tans more easily, you have dark skin. Finally, if your skin is not sensitive to the sun and you tan very quickly, you have dark skin.

For fair skin, opt for warm shades that warm up the complexion with a stroke of the brush.😉

Those with darker skin have a lot more choices, indeed, all shades work relatively well for their skin tone.

Finally, for dark skin, choose more colorful shades. They will bring a touch of pep in a stroke of the brush! 🌈

🌱  Depending on your age

If you have mature skin, go for more nude shades that will look great on you. For others, it's simple: all colors will match as long as you follow our advice! 👌

🌱  Depending on your clothes

Between colorful makeup and luminous outfit ... you have to choose! If you have a very colorful outfit, opt for more sober makeup to balance and keep a touch of sophistication. Finally if you have a more sober outfit, choose a more colorful make-up which will add pep to your look!

Choosing your eyeshadow: daring to color or prefer nude?

Everything will depend on the rendering you want to have and your preferences! If you feel more comfortable with nude colors, go for these colors. 🤍

Which eye shadow texture to choose?

✨ Iridescent eyeshadow

Lighter and more discreet, the iridescent eyeshadow will bring a touch of radiance and freshness to your makeup. Also known as pearlescent eyeshadow, apply it to the inner corner of the eye for a luminous effect. Reflector of light thanks to its pigments, it will illuminate your eyes all day and until the end of the night! 🕺

✨  Glitter eyeshadow

The Charlotte Bio tip: Pay attention to the formulation of the eyeshadow! 🔍

Choosing an eyeshadow: the 6 most asked questions

✅ Why turn to organic eyeshadow?

Be careful with the products you use. Indeed, the eyes are the most sensitive area of your face, it is therefore necessary to take care of them. By focusing on organic makeup, you take care of your skin and your mucous membranes. In organic formulas, the active ingredients are assimilated by the skin without attacking or clogging it. Formulated with natural and healthy ingredients , these ingredients replace all harmful components while respecting your skin and the planet.

Subject to very strict specifications, organic and vegan products can be endowed with independent certifications, such as Ecocert and Cosmebio . They are the guarantee of a natural and quality composition . 🌱

As a reminder, our Charlotte Bio eyeshadow palettes are made from 100% natural ingredients and 20% ingredients coming from organic farming . Safe for your skin , they guarantee a pleasant application, a luminous rendering and a long-lasting hold. Don't wait any longer to fall for it! 😍

✅ What is the difference between eyeshadow palettes and stick eyeshadows?

We talk about a stick eyeshadow when we talk about creamy textures. Eyeshadow palettes are about classic powder textures. 😼

✅ What about the expiration date of an eyeshadow?

It will all depend on the brand you use. Regarding our palettes, they can be used 12 months after opening. 😉

✅ Wearing lipstick and eyeshadow at the same time; is it a good idea?

Obviously! It will all depend on how much intensity you want to give. If you want to intensify the mouth , make a discreet eye makeup. Finally, if you want to highlight your eyes with a great makeup, bet on a discreet lipstick. A lot of makeup on the mouth and eyes can give a “too-much” effect, and it will not necessarily highlight your makeup!

✅ I have an allergy to my eyeshadow; what do I have to do?

Don't panic! Just change your makeup routine. 🧖‍♀️

Opt for hypoallergenic and clean eyeshadows like ours! They will respect your eyes by preventing you from having allergic reactions.

✅ Which eyeshadow colour to choose for grey eyes?

If you have pretty grey eyes, we advise you to look for charcoal and silver shades to enhance your eyes. ✨
