I need to find the right eye color
I have older eyes and my eyelids sag a bit. I'm trying to find the right eye color that will enhance my eyes. I don't want to have to spend a lot of time applying it.
I, too, have upper lids that sag a bit. After much trial and error, I have discovered that warm, golden colors or soft, matte colors work best for me. My go-to shadows are BareMinerals Ready eyeshadow pallettes The Cocktail Hour and The Afterparty. Once I got the hang of it, my day and night looks only take me about 10 minutes.
For a day look, I use Prime Time eyelid primer, and then buff a soft, shimmery golden color like Libation over my entire lid. Then, I apply a darker color like Rowdy just to the outer 3rd of my crease and lashline.
For an evening look, first I do the above steps. Then, I apply a darker shadow like Lights Down to my upper lash line, going only about half way across my lid. I use Rowdy, or a similar shade of a different color, to make a V shape at the outer corner of my upper lid and crease. For our type of lids, it's best if you don't take the darker shadow any further than about a third of the way into your crease.
No matter what look you want to create, you'll want to make sure you have a bright color like Cheers or Icebreaker on the center of your lid. This helps counteract the heavy look of our upper lids. The double-ended line and buff brush works best for me when I create these looks. After you get all these colors on, remember, blend, blend, blend!
