Hey guys! I read a lot of beauty related magazines and articles but there are not that many of them that I find very accurate as I think there's always a tone of generalization in them. But I was reading an article in InStyle that talked about the universally flattering shades on eyes and lips. They mentioned that gold and purple are the most flattering shades on your eyes despite your complexion or eye colour and raspberry or warm pinks are the best for lips. I tend to personally agree with the article as I've never seen anyone who can't rock these shades.

Here's an FOTD of me wearing the universally flattering shades:
