Since you're a beginner with makeup, selecting eye colors can be a little intimidating and overwhelming. It might be helpful to start using eye shadows that come in quads or trios that label which color goes on which part of the eye. Maybelline and Almay have some that are not expensive at all. This will allow you to not have to necessarily think about which color to use as it already tells you. As you get more comfortable with colors and start knowing what color combinations look good on you, you can then invest in more colors and higher end brands.
