Favorite eye shadow color combos

What are your faves, especially if they're unexpected or untraditional combinations...? Also please describe your coloring (light, dark, olive, golden, warm, etc.)

You can also describe your entire makeup "look." if you like (including cheek and lip colors, application techniques, and specialized tools or products).

    almost all my makeup is from MAC so just about every colour i mention in relation to myself is from there.

    my best "non-tradtional" combination for eyes (mine are DARK brown) is Orange Tangent with Sumptuous Olive and Shale (dark purple gray).

    of course, cherie! my absolute favourite eye shadow brush in the whole world is Maxine's Mop from Loew-Cornell (you can get them at Michael's Craft Stores) in the 1/4 inch size. (i have 8 of those brushes and use them constantly.)

    i use the orange at the inner corner and as the highlight - it's actually quite pale and slightly shimmery. then put the green over 2/3s of the lid and finish with the purple at the outer third of my lid and brushed into the crease.

    If I'm actually wearing it for something where I can get away with a more dramatic eye, I like the gray family. Sort of like in the pic below.

    I usually don't wear it at other times. But, sometimes I like the brown families. My regular makeup look is some loose powder and mascara.

    MAC fan here too. I usually stick to greys, browns and purples.

    I happened to get a freebie quad from Clinique that I really like that I when I want something different. There is peach and turquoise in it. I cover my lid with Bejing shadestick, then peach across the lid, turquoise in my crease and outer corner. Then I line the inside bottom of me eye in the peach and outside in the turquoise. Highlight: daytime - Shroom, nighttime - the goldie from the Clinique quad.

    It's kind of hard to see in this pic but this is the combo.

    ETA: After looking again, it seems I decided not to do the turquoise on top this particular day and can't find a picture where I did. :(

    Phoenix, thank you for noticing! I like to call them grey, but many call them blue or green. It's nice to see when someone else thinks they're grey too. :)
