Breaking Down:

First things first, let’s break it down:

1. Skin Tone & Undertone

This is your foundation (literally and figuratively!). Are you fair, light, medium, or golden? Cool, warm, or neutral undertones? Think peaches and cream for cool, golden honey for warm, and a perfectly blended smoothie for neutral. Your skin tone plays a significant role in determining the most flattering eye brightener shade for you. By considering your undertones, you can choose a shade that harmonizes beautifully with your complexion.

2. Eye Color

This is where the magic happens! Blue eyes get a boost with champagne (Stella) or rose gold (Aurora) shimmers. Green eyes pop with bronze (Anise) or copper (Emma) warmth. Brown eyes can play with champagne (Stella) for sparkle or cool gold (Pili) for depth. Hazel eyes? You lucky duck, rock them all!

3. Personal Style

Feeling fierce? Go bold with a cool gold like Pili. Want a natural glow? Stella’s your bestie. Craving a touch of vintage glam? Callie’s warm taupe whispers elegance.

While eye color and skin tone provide valuable insights, personal style and the occasion also influence your choice of Thrive Eye Brightener shade. Consider the following factors:

  • Everyday Wear

Opt for neutral and subtle shades like Soft Beige or Pearl for a natural and effortless look.

  • Evening Glam

Embrace bolder shades like Smoky Quartz or Midnight Sapphire for a captivating and glamorous effect.

  • Special Occasions

Experiment with shimmering shades like Rose Gold or Copper for a touch of elegance and sophistication.
