Hi!I have 2 questions:

1.I have blue-green-greyish eyes and and brown-gold hair.Do you know what eyeshadow color suits people like me?

2.What do you think of Happy light Bourjois foundation?Is it "harmful" for a 15 year old skin?(I put it on my nose and forehead,sometimes chin,as little as possible)

Thanks for your answers!

Personally, since you are so young I would stick with a neutral taupe and brown eyeshadows.  Or pinks.  I think that looks best on skind.

Happy light bourjois foundatinon is great for skin.  It is a very light product.  If you start breaking out or your skin starts changing then maybe consider another foundation like I.D. Baremineral makeup (one of my fav and one that I would recommend)  since it is so hard to screw up or wear too much of this kind of makeup.

Good luck!

Those sound like my eyes ^_^ .  I like purpley shades best on me, 'cause it seems to bring out the green in my eyes.  But if you wanna play up the blue, wear browns or blues.  Just be careful with blues, as it's easy to overdo them and come out looking cheap -_-; .  Actually, my advice for blues is probably my advice for anything-- I prefer very sheer or light shadows, so it's less harsh or unnatural.

I haven't yet figured out how to play up the grey, unfortunately.  So if anyone knows what's best for that, do share.

More awesome than a manatee!

if you want to bring out the blue use a taupe shimmery color..i use covergirls quad pack with the color seashell and dusty pink.

I'd say maybe some yellow tones of brown, gold, taupe, pink, and lavender. This is because you said blue green greyish.

Some say eye shadows should match your outfit , not your eyes. From my experience I have found both to be true. But the things I look at, are my skin tone, eye color and hair color. Besides the color outfit I am wearing.

So really I take all four into consideration.

 Works for me!
