If a softer palette is your preference then look no further, just because you prefer a softer look does not mean you can't play with color or texture, a subtle shimmering eye shadow, a colorful eyeliner, a pink/peachy gloss or a nude plum gloss and voila, you've amped up your look from soft to saucy! When it comes to eye shadows, "experiment with the colors you are most comfortable with", color is big this season and you should definitely use it for inspiration. Rich hues brighten up darker skin tones, ladies who are medium to fair needn't not shy away either.
