Complementary COLORS for your eyes

Complementary Colors in makeup will make your eyes pop! All colors can evoke certain emotions or feelings and can be used as a form of self expression, especially with cosmetics. Although there are a dizzying array of eye shadow colors that can be customized, choose one that will complement the color of your eyes. Wearing a shadow color that is opposite (complementary) of your eye color will make your eyes pop. If you do not have a color wheel on hand, here is a quick tip list.

GREEN EYES:
Plums, violets and various shades of purple will really make
green eyes stand out. Sepia, rust, copper and deep green are also
complementary. Avoid silver, blues, whites and pastels as they can make eyes
look washed out.

BROWN EYES:

Brown eyes are the easiest to complement as they look great in
all shades of bright colors. Teal, green, purple and pink will really make them pop, as well as bronze, peach, green, and navy.

HAZEL EYES:

Gray, burgundy and deep purple best complement hazel eyes
and will bring out the gold flecks in hazel eyes. A bright green will enhance
the green flecks in hazel eyes.

BLUE EYES:

Since blue is naturally cool, warm shades of gold, bronze, copper,
terra cotta, peach or light orange are the best complimentary colors to
make blue eyes pop. Browns with purple, slate and silvery blue are cooler
colors that are complementary and will also enhance blue eyes.

Jojoba Oil

Technically it is not actually an oil, but rather what is called a wax ester. What makes jojoba so great is its similarity to the oil that our own skin produces, called sebum. This means that our skin knows exactly how to deal with it, absorbing it quickly and easily, and using it to create a powerful barrier against moisture-loss, as well as against allergens and irritants like dust and pollution.For those pesky dry patches, this is just the thing to soften and restore your skin to a healthy condition. All of this makes jojoba oil a great treatment if you suffer from skin conditions that are caused by a lack of moisture, like eczema. Not only that, but jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which will take down the redness caused by dryness, or by skin conditions like rosacea. It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can “trick” the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production. The bottom line for acne-prone people is that jojoba oil is non-comedogenic so you can use it without fear.

You can use it as a Cuticle Oil, Apply a few drops to rough, dry cuticles at least once per day.

Benefits of jojoba oil
Provides all day moisturization – jojoba oil doesn’t evaporate like water based moisturizers can.
It is theorized, but not yet proven, that because jojoba oil is so similar to human skin oil, it can “trick” the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus balance oil production.
Very stable – jojoba oil does not become rancid or lose antioxidants even after long periods of storage.
Spreads well and absorbs well.

Drawbacks of jojoba oil
At high amounts (over 6 drops) it can lend a shine to the skin. It is best to be conservative with it during the day (5-6 drops at a time). Moderate usage should actually balance oil production and reduce shine. At night before bed, feel free to use as much as you like.
