Eyeshadows to make your eyes pop

It can be hard sometimes to find eyeshadows that really make your eyes pop. Below is a list of eyeshadows, and eyeshadow palettes, to help guide you in choosing which eyeshadows look best. Makeup is all about trial and error, experimenting, and finding what makes you feel the best.

Blue eyes:


The best eyeshadow colors for blue eyes are cool tones with pink/purple undertones. Shimmery shadows on the upper lid and tear duct of the eye will also make blue eyes stand out. In addition, shimmery bronze shades can look very good on blue eyes if you want a darker smokier look. The best palettes for people with blue eyes are Naked 3 palette ($54 at Sephora, Ulta and urbandecay.com), Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette ($9.99 at Ulta, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and maybelline.com),  and w7 In the Nude palette ($6.50 on Amazon).

Green eyes:


The best eyeshadow colors for green eyes are taupes, darker browns, warm shades, and your personal preference of purples. Really light eye makeup looks are easy to accomplish and work great with green eyes. To achieve this you can keep it fairly simple with an all over lid color that is close to your natural skin color, a transition color to enhance the crease and a small inner corner and brow bone highlight, and flirty lashes to tie the look together. The best palettes for green eyes are Naked 1 palette ($54, Ulta, Sephora, urbandecay.com), Pixi Mesmerizing mineral palette in Emerald Gold ($12 at target and pixi.com), and Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette ($4.99 Ulta, Target, Walmart, walgreens, CVS, wetnwild.com)

Brown eyes:


The best eyeshadow colors for brown eyes are golds, warm shimmery shadows, neutral shades and specifically, burgundy. Brown eyes work the best for experimenting with vibrant and highly pigmented shades. Brown eyes look good in just about all colors since the base eye color is neutral.  The best palettes for brown eyes are Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($49 at Sephora and Ulta), Naked 2 Palette ($54 at Sephora, Ulta, urbandecay.com) and Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Kit ($8 at Ulta, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, almay.com)

Black Friday shopping

The holiday season is fast approaching and that has many thinking about the annual black friday sales! This year may be a bit different though; some business are withdrawing their annual sales, and refusing to open. One store proposing this idea is REI, who urges customers to spend the day outside, rather than shopping. This topic has cultivated much controversy because some believe they are missing out on a great financial opportunity, and others support the idea of spending the day outside with family and friends.

Recently, some stores have opened early, on Thanksgiving night. These stores although received an increase in profit, have drawn negative attention and shame. The reasoning for this is because some believe that opening on Thanksgiving, a holiday, isn’t right. Even some employees of Macy’s have protested not to open on Thanksgiving night, for they feel they have rightfully earned the day off to spend with their loved ones. This even has some customers boycotting these companies by refusing to shop there if they decide to open on Thanksgiving day.

In the past, Best Buy, Walmart, and Toys R Us have opened earlier and earlier every year on Thanksgiving. This year, they may be opening earlier than 6 P.M., possibly before Thanksgiving dinner has been held in many American households. Regardless, the time these stores open is their own decision, even though it may negatively impact their sales, reputation, or satisfaction of their workers.
