Eyeshadow ideas for the super pale?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm in a makeup rut. I'm SUPER SUPER pale, to the point where random people like to comment on my skin tone and I've got a hoard of South Korean girls who hate my guts because I'm paler than them (kidding, they're all really nice- we joke about this all the time). You all know what I look like

I mostly only wear champagne/white shades of eyeshadow (to enhance the paleness)... But that's a bit boring for me now. I normally wear metalic bronze eyeliner (from Revlon, love it!), Badgal mascara, some random shade of champagne, and whatever lipgloss. Any ideas? Paula's Choice has this one shade of super light pink that looks perfect, but I'm a still stuck

well what color are your eyes?

I tend to go neutrals as well, but I like to try smoky looks with soft lighter shades, i.e. blues, grays, greens, wine colors...

It doesn't have to be drastic, just a little different

what is your skintone, neutral, cool, or warm?

fyrinnae.com is a great mineral makeup company with about 700 shades of eyeshadow to choose from and generous samples are only $1.50 so you could try a bunch of different colors. i would definently recommend little red's pet wolf, its a really nice golden color. they also put out a new collection with several light neutral shades. the only downside to fyrinnae is the shipping time because of its popularity.

mac satin taupe is a light taupe color that seems to flatter everyone.

Umm... Depends... Like, light light light grey to green, depends on the lighting... And I'm a cool tone.

I can't find red's pet wolf... do you have a link? That's such a great website

Oh, and here's a pic of my new favorite shade of pink, it's almost exactly matches my skin tone, so it just evens everything out

pinks bronzes gold brown

i would try pinks or bronzey pinks... neutral light browns..... you can actually wear all kinds of colors, just be sure to apply with a light hand and blend well. I would recommend this stila set..

I'm super pale too (whenever i hit a walkin the doctor always asks "are you anemic? it's just that your so pale...") A MAC girl told me once that pinks and peaches would look nice, and I've been trying with those types of shades ever since. I actually have a peachy-pink shade from annabelle (totally cheap drug store stuff) and it's a 2 color compact called "flamingo." The pink is pretty bright (i do like it for going out) and then the peach is quite pretty for more causal outings.

i think its gone from the site i just ordered a full size, hope it comes! perhaps try again in a week or 2 and see if it comes back.

anyways, my other 2 fave shades from there are newcastle & snow leopard.

I would definitely recommend a med-darker brown shade since you have green eyes... just get a soft pencil so that you can smudge it a bit into your eye area so it wont look so drastic

One of my good friends has a similar skin tone to yours and she loves colored eyeshadows. She just goes with the pastel version and it works quite well for her. Here are some colors that I think would look great on you:

1) Loki: Fyrinnae
2) Apparition: Fyrinnae
3) Loch Ness: Fyrinnae
4) Vodka: Fyrinnae
5) Ashes: Fyrinnae
6) Bubble tea: Fyrinnae
7) Evening fog: Fyrinnae

im super pale too and get comments on it aloooot.
what color are your eyes? .. mine alternate between shades of green, blue and gray.. i find colors that work best on my face are typically smokey-eyed looks normally in shades of brown and gray.
for example the MAC shadow mulch, suspicion, espresso (blended with something lighter and shimmery).. and if you go w/ shades of brown, use a dark brown gel eyeliner and a bronzer on your face and it doesn't look overdone.
either way, making eyes pop over face/lips looks best IMO
