Q: Which neutral eyeshadow shades are best for my skin tone?
—@headoverwater via Twitter



A: Varying shades and textures of brown and camel complement all skin tones. Rich complexions like yours look best with warmer hues such as chocolate and bronze, as cooler colours tend to look ashy and washed out. Highlighters in a similar palette will help brighten the eye area and lift your natural skin tone overall. To complete your look, pair with a nude lip.
