Central heterochromia

I just found out I have central heterochromia, I never really thought about why my eyes had two colours -orange and green- but today I came across a website which mentioned the different kinds of heterochromia and I went ‘oh look I have that too’.

I know you can’t see it clearly in the photo, but I have an orange ring around my pupil, while the rest of my iris is green.

Central heterochromia

There are different types of heterochromia (central, two different eyes,…) and the one I have isn’t that rare. I still like the way it looks though and I think on some people it looks really cool.

 

Draw attention to your eyes

If you’re looking for a way to draw the attention to your eyes, you can try using a coloured mascara. First, you apply a layer of black mascara and then cover the ends of your lashes with the colour of your choice.

For example : I have green eyes, so I tend to use a green mascara. If your eyelashes stick together, like mine sometimes do, just take an eyebrow brush and use the comb to lightly comb trough them. You’ll immediatly see the difference a little colour can make.

Brown eyes look great with earth colours, like green or brown.

Green ones look fantastic with plum or violet.

For blue eyes, you can try yellow or a darker/lighter blue than your eye colour.

People with grey eyes can work with almost any colour and focus on the undertones. ( for example : if you’ve got green undertones, you can use a green mascara.)

Finally, we have amber eyes, which look good with a light blue colour.

If you’re still not sure which colour to use, you can take a look right here

 

 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Even though we don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day here, I’ve decided to colour my blog green today. If you’re looking for nail art, accessories or make-up which will make you fit in perfectly today, you’ve come to the right place. Check out a few ideas, I’ve kept it quite subtle, but you can always take it a little further and go for a bright green hat or pants.

   

     

Coloured eyeliner

I once said a little bit of eyeliner can make a big difference and I still believe it does. That’s why I’m posting about coloured eyeliners this time. You can combine them with eyeshadow, but when doing that, it’s best to stick to a nude lipstick or gloss. Another option is to use a black eyeliner first and then applying a thin line of coloured liner above it.  

      

Beauty tip

If you have bags under your eyes because you haven’t slept enough, or you’re sick, this might be a useful trick. Put two teaspoons in the fridge, until they’ve cooled. Hold the underside of the spoons under your eyes and keep them there, until they warm up again. The cold will reduce the swelling and if necessary, you can also use a light concealer.
