I have green eyes and auburn hair and a fair skin tone. I have heard that I can't use light colored eye shadows. Is that true? What colors should I use for my lips, eyes and cheeks?

Not true at all- of course you can use light eye shadow colors Smiley Happy


You are lucky because green eyes and auburn hair go so well together.  If you hair color stands out, then you will have to adjust your makeup colors to match with your hair color.


Since you said you have auburn hair, I would stick to lips and cheeks with a more peach undertone as this will complement your hair color the best.

For your eyes, stick with browns with red or orange undertones as these will complement your eye color and hair color the best.  Here are some options:


Smashbox Palette Blue Eyes (don't be fooled- it will look great on you too even with green eyes)
