Jewel-Toned Makeup Ideas And Tips
So jewel-toned makeup has been spotted at the runway so we offer a few tips and ideas on wearing this dramatic trend.
Choose Right Jewel
Chosing the right eyeshadow for your eye color and skin tone is important. Blue eyes will look in topaz blue eyeshadow while brown and hazel eyes can be complemeted with emerald green and amethyst, green eyes will look best in jet green. Opt for sheer topaz blue for gray eyes and of course, experiment trying different colors and see how they look on you.
Make It Wearable
Since jewel-toned makeup is dramatic it’s best to wear it in the evening and make it wearable. Of course, the magazine spreads and runway looks may be a little too much for a night out even so try to tone down the look that inspired you. Smokey eyes is a classic so why not do a subtle smokey eyes in jewel tones that will complement your eyes and skin tone as well as outfit and, of course, suit the ocassion.
Jewel Toned Eyeliner
You can make your jewel-toned makeup more wearable by choosing to use only eyeliner in a tone of choice. This way it will look beautiful but not overly dramatic. Also if you are doing a jewel-toned makeup try to stick to one or two colors or balance it out with neutral tones. Multicolored makeup might look too costumey off the runway so make sure to tone it down when it comes to introducing more colors into your maquillage.
Often times even in fashion magazine spreads the jewel-toned eyes are the center of attention. It’s a good balancing tool in real life as well. Leave the eyes natural when wearing jewel-toned eye makeup or opt for clear gloss or lip balm.
Keep eyelashes very subtle by applying only a coat of mascara. Opt out of false eyelashes to achieve a more wearable jewel-toned look.
