This was inspired by Liz's comfort colors thread ... are there any e/s colors that you never (or rarely) wear because you don't like them? I know we always talk about how we shouldn't be "color shy"; however I don't think you should wear colors you don't like just because you feel you *have* to try every color!


I personally avoid blues, greens, and grays, because those colors are too similar to my grey-blue eyes and my eyes just look hidden under the makeup. (And it doesn't help that my eyes are already pretty small!) So I stick to colors that contrast my eyes so they'll pop more, or whites to make my small eyes look bigger! (However, I do have some turquoise and gray eyeliners that I wear with other colors of e/s, just for something different, even though they're not the most flattering!)

I really do wear most all colors, so that's what I voted for!! Now granted I do stick to neutrals most of the time, but I do love a colorful, fun eye or smokey eye! Blues are really the only color I tend to wear the least of, but I have found a few I like! My only problem is that some blues accentuate my dark circles, and I'm definitely not trying to do that, LOL!!

I don't really wear orange, yellow or red. These colours don't really flatter my skintone, even though some of them are supposed to flatter my blue eyes. Red e/s just makes me look tired and yellow or orange make me look ill!

I just can't get myself to wear blue. I own a ton of blues, and I'm always wanting more but I just don't ever wear them. When I put them on I think they look too cool-toned on me, so I'm probably just going through a warm eye shadow color phase right now.

I rarely wear gold...maybe in winter as a christmas look *lol* but it doesn´t look all that great on me. yellow would be even worse I guess, I bet that would make me look sick.

I love and wear EVERYTHING!! My motto is 'any color can work - depending on what you do with it'. For instance, what doesnt look good on the lid, may look awesome in the crease, or as a highlighter, or contour, etc. For me, its all about placement - then anything can work!! (again, this is what works for ME)

That's true, I don't usually wear yellow or gold either (maybe another color with a gold shimmer but that's it) ... I added those colors to the poll after I wrote my first post

I agree with Tracey & Trisha. I have all types of colors. Really depends what mood I am in and how I decide to wear them.

It's not conceited, we've seen your FOTD's and we know you always look good!
Besides, I think with your brown eyes and darker skin you can pull off about any color -- I'm pale enough that I know that some colors make me look like a clown! lol

I usually stick to neutrals browns, gold, etc. I just bought Shimmermoss, I would I pull that bright color off? With what color clothes? Don't want to be too vibrant but I love the color.

I voted for peach/orange mostly because of orange. I look terrible in orange makeup. I can wear soft peach shades. I have to stay away from anything that's true orange or the orange-based corals. I can do pink-based corals though.

I guess the attitude i have stems from the fact, that my mother always told me i could wear anything and it would suit me cos of my skintone. xx
