Darker Skin Tones
A dramatic, smoky eye in a gorgeous collection of midnight and sky blues pops on dark skin, which is why we love the Lancôme Hypnose Doll Eyes Eyeshadow palette. It uses the unique “wet” eye shadow technology to allow for a full range of effects and textures.
Jewel tones like plum also look incredible on dark skin. Makeup artists and beauty junkies alike all rave about the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette. It boasts a design that is truly a work of art and offers a range of options from subtle to dramatic.
Olive Skin Tones
An array of timeless shades allow you to choose between matte, satiny or metallic finishes. The Chanel Quadra in Mystic Eyes palette offers endless variations and contrasts to accentuate olive skin tones.
You can easily switch it up with a beautiful mix of warm and cool tones as olive skin pairs well with so many shades from soft, shimmering peach to darker matte greige. With a sleek design that’s edgy yet still classic, try YSL's Couture Palette Rock Resille for a stunning set of elegant colors with a halo of softness.
Medium Skin Tones
There's a reason Dior’s best selling eye palette has garnered so many loyal fans. Dior 5 Couleurs in Ambre Nuit combines rich, classic nudes and one gorgeous rose tone to offer a seductive range of possibilities.
Bronzed and honey shades that illuminate and brighten look amazing on medium skin tones. The best part is these adaptable tones can easily double as a light daytime look or help you achieve a smoldering night time vibe. Try Lancôme's Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Kissed By Gold for a fun and versatile assortment of shades.
Lighter Skin Tones
With its creamy nudes, tans and beige, Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Con No. 7 in The Lolita is perfect for porcelain skin and also showcases soft gold and copper tones for a frosty rose-gold look.
Pale skin isn’t something to hide anymore, thanks to gorgeous celebrities like Emma Stone and Cate Blanchett showcasing their flawless complexions. Taupes, grays and beige tones typically look more flattering on lighter skin, which is why the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette should be your winter go-to.
