Choose a gilded metallic color, such as bronze or gold, to add instant warmth to fair skin. The shimmery eyeshadow will especially complement girls with rich brown or blonde hair featuring golden highlights. No matter what color eyes you have, layer the gold or bronze shadow with a deeper chocolate color. Sweep brown shadow below the eyelid crease, and top it with a sparkly gold color from crease to brow.
Go for a smoldering look with smoky silver eye shadow. The shiny shadow will "pop" against pale skin, making your fair complexion sparkle. For a sophisticated look, apply a dark, matte gunmetal gray eyeshadow below your eyelid creases. Sweep a silvery, almost iridescent white shadow above the gray to highlight your eyes. Finish the dramatic look with black mascara.
Play up your fair skin with pretty pastel metallic eyeshadow for a demure, dreamy look. Accent green eyes with a soft green metallic shadow, or celebrate your blue eyes with enchanting silvery blue or lavender shadows. Brown eyes will come alive with soft yellow metallic shadows that are one shade away from white. Bring out a rosy skin tone with pastel pink metallic shadow for a romantic look.
Layer metallic eye shadow with a darker, matte color to avoid too much of a good thing.
Gently pat a cream concealer onto your eyelids before applying the metallic shadow to keep the color in place.
