Matching Your Eyeshadow to Your Eye Color

It’s tempting to accentuate your eyes with bold blues and purples, but in some cases, these colors may work against you. In order to create the most appealing and head-turning looks, you need to dress your eyes with colors that will look the best according to your skin tone and eye color.

The best way to figure out which eyeshadow colors will accentuate your eyes is to look at a color wheel. You want to find colors that are complementary to your natural eye color. When you look at a color wheel, look for the colors that are on the opposite side of the wheel and those will be the colors you want to use. That being said, you also want to keep in mind the hues of each color and how they will look on your face.

Blue Eyes

The opposite of blue on the color wheel is orange, though a bright orange color may not be the best choice for your everyday work makeup. If you want to make your eyes pop in an amazing way, you will want to choose a more natural hue of orange, such as bronze or a rich brown with orange undertones. For days where you want a more understated look, lighter tones like a soft pink or peach will also make heads turn.

Brown Eyes

Brown-eyed beauties are the lucky ones. If you take a look at the color wheel, you will notice that brown is absent. This makes it easy for ladies with brown eyes to choose an eyeshadow color because they can wear almost any color! That being said, different colors will have different effects on how your eye color will look. For example, if you wear green eyeshadow, the color of your eyes will look lighter. On the other hand, silver or dark grey colors will make the brown of your eyes really stand out. No matter what color you choose, you can never go wrong with a swoop of black eyeliner to finish the look!

Green and Hazel Eyes

The complementary color of green is red, but as we mentioned above, a dark, bold red may not be the best choice for everyday wear. Instead, you may choose to go with eyeshadows that are in the pink family. You can even get away with bronze colors with red undertones or rusty, mahogany colors.

Hopefully, after reading this blog you have a better idea of what color eyeshadows will make your eyes look their best.
