Hi everyone so I am not sure if this is how the conversation thing works so I have a question?
I am very pale and am not sure what eyeshadow color suits pale people does anyone have a suggestion I am not Vampire pale haha but close to it would lime green be okay? I know I shouldn't use black becuase it would make me look whiter!
So any thing would help! Thanks!!!!!!!!
I'm super pale as well, but I don't worry too much about the colors I use. My personal philosophy is to just wear what you like and feel good in. Lime green would definitely be fun! Others tend to focus their colors on what makes their eye color (brown, blue, etc) stand out, or what goes with the outfit.
I say wear whatever you like and rock it XD
I'm about 2 shades too pale for most foundations, and I wear whatever color eyeshadow I want (including black, love it for evening and smokey looks). It's all down to personal preference, really. I think that age and setting have more to do with what colors you wear (teenager vs. professional, date night vs. brunch) than your personal pigmentation or lack thereof.
If you're pale, your skin goes with about anything you can think of, if you pull it off the right way. Don't pack it on, otherwise it will look pastey and fake because of a high contrast with your pale skin, but really- anything goes with white.

As long as you think it looks good and it makes you feel pretty, there's no right or wrong colors :)
i am also pale.. use more nuetral colors because if you use a darker color it will reflect off ur skin and make you look more pale. go with lighter - neutral colors !
i find smokey eyes, browns, deep purples, even mauves, shades of green and blue look great with pale skin...i have a client who is very VERY pale and she loves deep purples, greens and browns, makes her eyes pop but dont contrast with her skin tone :]
I go with whatever feels like fun, color isn't something I worry about, I think any color can look nice if you have good application and blending skills. If it helps I'm an NC15 in MAC foundation.
As far as black goes, just don't go for a super intense black if it makes you feel like it doesn't look good, they have softer blacks, that are in between a really dark grey and black. graphite grays and things are also a good substitute for blacks.
Personally I think grays can look really soft for being a darker color.I have a soft black from a limited edition smashbox duo, and typically I just don't like wearing black on myself I feel like it just looks to harsh, but this black its not intense, it's easy to build up without going overboard, and it's still soft looking. Maybe you just need to shop around for the right black in you're interested playing with that color.
If you want lime green, go for it!
well that would depend on wht type of look you are going for? are you trying to achive a natural look? a girls night out look? a smokey eye look?
even with your fair skin tone you CAN achive a bunch of difrent looks with eye shadow useing the right colors, it just depends on what you wanna do
