To be fair I SUCK at eye makeup, but it would be cool to figure out.
My eyes are brown with green around the edges so I know about the purple but you don't have to use that. One thing I found is that eye primer is amazingly helpful. I like Urban Decay. The other thing I did was to look at a lot of tutorial vids for everyday eye makeup. Something like this.

wearing false eyelashes with heavy eye make-up, ** and though they were always criticized by other women as looking “artificial,” they got all the attention from the men. When a man sees a make-up job that is blatantly and obviously make-up, he is automatically flattered, because he knows that the woman is trying to look sexy. Men like to see a sexy -looking woman and it pleases a man to think that a woman is knocking herself out trying to please him”
I just might that this quote would be fun to put on this thread... like make up.
Why you looking for a harmony?

OMG.... But I love looking artificial.

I just popped my false eyelash cherry and now I don't know why I haven't used them in the past!
They really fill out the entire look. I love them. Anyone have any favorite brands? Fav adhesives? I found I can only get about three uses out of a pair before they go into the trash. Is this normal?

I have green eyes (with a blue rim) - and yes, purple is a classic
In, fact I remember going to the mac shop for a workshop on make up and at the end of it, all the sales women came over to me and went like - omg, with your eyes, I NEED to try this electric purple on you <3333
But, I also find that all shades of brown from beige to deep dark brown work really well - for the natural look, as such. Aside from that, I noticed that the hair colour also plays a role. When I was a blonde, I stayed more away from warmer shades, and stuck to colder ones. Now that I'm a red head - despite being a cold red - I can pull them off and they work...gorgeously with my green eyes (think ivory, peach, saffron, bronze, mocha, etc)
On the other hand, those soft pastel lilacs and my favourite shade of lavender and indigo...yeah, so much better with the blonde (due to complimentary colours), though If I get just the right shade and blend them really well, it still works. Meanwhile, I loved plum colours when I was blonde but they made me look tired. Now, they absolutely complement both my hair and my eyes. The same is true with pink. Since red and green are colours that make each other pop ( again, complimentary colours) and pink is the soft version of red, it really brings it out. Otoh, pink - especially warm pink - can make you look really tired as it mimics the colour of tired eyes. So you need to really apply it with precision and it works way better with the red hair because it blends in more. In general, the red hair let me wear more bold colours, contrasting with my eyes and making them pop, whereas the blonde asked for softer colours to just highlight them beautifully.
I love playing with colours
Oh and my collection consists of MAC supplies (which I'm currently trying to finish up), Victoria Secret colour pallet (for travelling) and I'm currently in love and transitioning over to Jane Iredale (due to their commitment to both the environment, cruelty free and natural make-up)
Speaking of Jane Iredale and green eyes (or whatever your eye colour is) - check out their Eyesteppes! They basically have eyeshadow collections based on your eye colour and your skin tone!

You should look into gold as a color. Gold can easily be used for day looks AND night looks. Plus it would look lovely with the green and brown in your eyes!

So, wondering a few things, for those of you who use makeup brushes:
1.) How do you guys wash your brushes?
2.) What cleansers/products do you use to wash 'em?
3.) Do you wet the whole thing, or just the ends?
4.) Approx how long does it usually take to dry?
5.) What position do you dry it in?
6.) How often do you wash your brushes?
Thx in advance!
