Accentuate Your Eyes: Color Coding
Alisha Scott, Sophomore


Listen ladies, I know we all strive to achieve our personal perception of the “perfect makeup look”. However, due to everyone's extremely unique appearance and physical characteristics, that ideal look can vary greatly for each individual. If you're having some difficulties creating your flawless face, begin with the eyes. Each eye possesses a distinct color which can be enhanced by the use of eyeshadow. Certain eye colors coincide with specific eyeshadow shades that have the ability to brighten and intensify your eyes. If you are uncertain which shades are suitable for your eye color, don't you worry because the Buzz Babes are here to help!
