Sooooooooo I've been stuck in a rut with my eye makeup colors here lately, and I was wondering if any of you gurus might have some suggestions for bringing out my eye color. I'm super super pale, red hair and light brown/hazel eyes (depending on the lighting). In all actuality, my eyes are pretty dang close to my hair color.

Any and all suggestions and tips/advice/help is welcomed. I adore makeup, but there's so much out there I feel like I barely know ANYthing! Pinks/deep reddish purples seem to work pretty well on me, lighter blues/purples/cool tones not so much. But I'll try anything :P

    Some color/combo recs:

    -Royal Blue (Nars China Blue) smudged into your lashes, mascara
    -Fuschia (Urban Decay Purple Haze) on your lids, yellow (NYX Banana) in the crease, purple (MUFE) lining your top lid, green (Laura Geller Forest Mist) lining your bottom lid
    -Soft brown lining top lid, shimmery green (Nars Icelandia duo) on lining bottom, lots of mascara

    i like it - whenever i'm standing there staring at my palettes trying to figure out what to do today, i'll pick out a colour and punch it in at the site.
