Eyeshadows to Enhance Your Eye Color

Looking to make your eye color pop? Take these makeup tips and get ready to show off those beautiful eyes!

Blue Eyes
Light neutral tones are the most complimentary colors for blue eyes. Steer clear of harsh overly dark tones and smoky eyes. For a day look sweep a light champagne shadow over the lid and add mascara. For night, add a darker color to the crease and corners and line the bottom lash line with a gray brown or taupe-y-plum to intensify the eye.

Try: MAC eyeshadow in Sable ($16)

Brown to Dark Brown Eyes
Almost anything goes with brown eyes, however reddish browns or bronzy golden tones accentuate them the best. Adding just a touch of dark brown or black shadow to the crease will help add a touch of intensity. For dark brown eyes add black liner to the waterline of the eyes to define.

Try: NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Bengali ($25); NYX Epic Black Mousse Liner ($10)

Green Eyes
Purples, plum, or shimmery browns are great for accentuating green eyes. Purples and plum colors bring out the natural greenish yellow that makes this color eye strikingly beautiful. For an over the top night look use a dark plum almost black color to line to intensify the eyes.
