Fair Skin

For those with fair skin and rosier undertones, try a silver metallic eye shadow to illuminate your face. Not sure what your skin type and/or undertone is? Find out here!

Warm Skin

If you have medium skin with yellow or olive undertones — veins in this skin tone look green in the light — gold metallic eye shadow will look stunning on you. Try L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Eternal Sunshine.

Dark Skin

For darker skin tones, metallics will pick up nicely, as skin with more pigment tends to show off color well. Layer up on the color to get more impact, but try an array of colors -- blue, green, even red.
