How do you do a neutral makeup look?

For your eyes to look great, red eyeshadow shades are the obvious choice, especially if you are going to some social gathering or party.

For a lighter neutral tone, Rose gold shade is pretty much in trend now but we are leaning more to blending Copper and Rose gold for that stunning look.

If you are going out for lunch invites with your friends, colleagues or family, gold eyeshadow will not only make your eyes glow but also bring fun into your day (and office too).

For daytime outings, you can lean towards brown eyeshadow shades to compliment your eye makeup looks.

The silver and brown are the best neutral eyeshadow variant that look amazing if you apply them for work.

They give a perfectly natural look and at the same time enhance any eye color. Along with this, if you want to enhance your eye color even more, try to use mascara and black eyeliner with it. These are fantastic ideas on makeup for different eye and skin color.

Above are the variation of neutral eyeshadow that look amazing. Even people who have bluish green eyes can wear these eyeshadow looks too.

No matter what season and occasion, you can stick to these bold neutral tones and not look dull.

These eyeshadow palette can even be applied to eyelids and do wonders to your eye makeup as well.

Light purple shade is probably one of the best neutral eyeshadow looks like Lily Collins’at the Met Gala.

It all depends on the color tone of your eyes that helps you decide the shades of these bold neutral eyeshadows.

If the tone of your eyes are darker, then you should choose lighter shades, while if the eye color tone is lighter, darker shadow colors would be best for your looks.

These are all the shades of eyeshadows looks for green eyes that really looks cool. If you do not like a color from this selection, you can use Reddish brown. These are two awesome shades that blend well together as well.

Smokey eyes look amazing for women with green eyes. If done in the right way, they are capable to even enhance small eyes.

If you are keen on smokey eye look, then I believe this is the best evening makeup for green eyes on special occasions such as Proms, dinner dates and homecoming.

 If you combine this with a dark black color eyeliner and good quality mascara, it adds to your makeup look even more. Rather than using pure black shadow color, just go for the grey tones.


Black eyeshadow looks a bit extravagant for your eyes, so avoid it. You can use it just for your eyeliner instead. You can either apply it plain or make winged eyes.

Moreover, try not to use charcoal shade with silver especially on your makeup looks. It looks very awkward and overshadows your eye color rather than enhancing it.

These are the main options that we’ve found to be the best bold neutral eyeshadow for any eye color.

Start experimenting your individual style and find new ways to express yourself with mixing neutral eyeshadow colors.

Try adding a personal touch for a one-of-a-kind eyeshadow combination and hopefully your most ideal neutral eyeshadow looks will be the envy with everyone.
