Eyes Eyes Eyes

They say the eyes are the window to the soul… so shouldn’t they make a statement?

After years of going totally eyeshadow-less, I’ve very recently begun to embrace the colors… and learn which ones work best with my skin tones. As I am a fair-skinned blonde with blue eyes, purples really make my eyes pop (in a good way), while any really bright colors will make me look like an 80s rave / insane asylum escapee. I know I can’t do smokey eyes like my olive-skinned friends because I look totally goth, but a lighter smokey eye (going to a dark gray or medium brown) actually surprisingly works. So which eyeshadow palettes are my favorites in my arsenal?
