I'm no expert, but I do my best friend's make up a lot and I actually bought her this palette for her birthday! She has medium brown hair, green eyes and a light-medium complexion. I often use the first color (top,far left) to highlight under her brow and her inner corners. I use the second to last on the right, top row, and sweep it all over her lid and crease (little bit on the bottom lash line). Then I take the color to the left of it and apply it on the outer 2/3 of the crease and the outer 1/2 of the lid. Then, I use the second farthest left color on the bottom row to outline her upper and lower lash line, creating a small wing. Finally, I use the middle color on the bottom row to extend the lash line and create a semi-smokey eye, by blending it into the crease. She really likes it! I think it looks good on lighter skin-tones as well, as I am super light and have tried it on my skin-tone. I hope this helps a little bit, or sparks some creativity!
Excellent question! I, too, have very fair skin and these shades work for me because you can use the colors wet or dry. You can sweep on just a little color or build more for an all-out glamorous look. Shades of purple make green eyes pop (artists work with a colorwheel, and oppposites attract)! This magnificent palette has a gentle pink and a blackened plum which will accent your natural emerald. You will also enjoy the nude/deep brown duo, the pure antique gold, and the cobalt blue. I promise, you will have others green with envy . . .
