Eye Makeup Colors to Bring out Your Eye Color

Eye Makeup Colors to Bring out Your Eye Color

Your eye color is just as unique as your personality. The right eye makeup can make all the difference as to whether your makeup will call attention to your eyes or draw attention away from them. There are different recommendations for what kind of makeup and application styles to use that depend on the color of your eyes, making them the central focus of your face.

For those who have blue eyes, you should choose eye shadow shades in brown, violet and rose colors. They provide the perfect contrast to your blue eyes and will really make them pop.

Try to make sure the shades you select are darker than your eye color. Never use blue eye shadow! Matching your eye shadow color to your eyes in any hue can make your eyes look dull.

If you like, you can always mix your eye shadow with a touch of black to create a smoky look.

Don’t buy black eyeliner because you think it will help your blue eyes to stand out more. Dark or medium brown eyeliners work much better at bringing out the beauty of blue eyes. If you want more contrast, select a liner that is a shade lighter than your eye shadow.

The best mascara to use would be a brown or brown/black color. If you must use black, simply touch the brush to your lashes for slight color.

Plum and violet shades do wonders to bring out green eyes. If you tire of those shades, you can try shades of brown, mauve, medium pink, lilac and dark purple colors.

Don’t use blue, silver, white or any pastel shades as they can make you look washed out. Apply the darker shades in the crease of the eye, and medium shades on the eyelid. Blend them together for a soft and smoky look.
