Color advice

email i received from a viewer after my color theory segment on Mass Appeal ‎/

I always have trouble to know what color eye shadow and liner I should wear.  I am 65 and still love to do my eyes.  I have fair skin tone, and green eyes.  What color of shadows would flatter my eyes more and what color eye liner should I be wearing.  I always wear black eye liner which is a pencil.  I would love to order your product but I am having trouble trying to figure out what colors would be best.  Should I also wear brighter cheek color since my skin is fair.
I would appreciate any help.

Thank you,

Hi Rosanne, i'm so glad you contacted me. Green eyes always look most stunning and vibrant in any purple shade. It doesn't have to be a deep or dark purple-light colors work too. My color Fig is a great example of a lighter grayish purple that i use very often of women over a certain age. Another color i love for lining the eyes is my FFM shade of Invincible which is a deep brown with purple undertones.( my powdered shadows can be used as liners as as well) Rich plums- like my Passionate is another great choice ( you can see all these at and even if you choose not to use my colors- you can see the shades to get an idea of what to look for. If you still prefer a pencil- try a brown shade rather than black- it warmer and adds a richness that black does not. As for cheek color- brighter colors- that are sheer- to allow your skin tone to shine through tend to give the most youthful look- My colors First crush (bright pink) or Poppy (bright peach) are 2 great ones. Let me know if you have any other questions!
