How to Match Your Eye Shadow
With Your Eye Color



Eye shadow can help enhance your natural eye colour. Certain colors bring out your eyes. But, determining the right eye shadow color for your eye color is more than just reading a list of possibilities. You still need to choose a shade that blends well with your skin tone.



Everyone has a different eye color and skin tone. If you have fair skin and blue eyes, for example, you would want to choose an eye shadow that enhances both. You also need to take into account what you are wearing and your hair color. Someone with olive skin, blonde hair, and hazel eyes will choose a color that enhances all three.



Sound confusing? It doesn’t have to be. Consult a professional or knowledgeable friend to help you choose your colors. Experiment and get a few makeovers. Find colors that work for a few different looks. Here is some additional advice on how to match your eye shadow with your eye color.



  • For Blue Eyes - You could have light blue eyes, dark blue eyes, or a shade in between. Experiment with various shades of taupe, blue, purple, grey, and black. Choose more subdued shades for day wear and experiment with the trendy alternatives for an evening look.







  • For Hazel and Green Eyes - Hazel eyes often reflect the colors around them. For that reason, it is extremely important to change your eye look for different outfits. Since hazel eyes most often appear green, they are listed together in the same category.


  • Colors that work well: With hazel and green eyes include brown, khaki, deep green, and plum. Experiment with different shades within these color families to create looks for different occasions and outfits.


  • Brown Eyes - Brown eyes look great in shades of pink, plum, brown, and deep blues. The colors that look best will depend on the undertones of your skin. For example, if you have brown eyes and olive skin, you will look best in shades of pink or brown. If you have brown eyes, fair skin, and dark hair, you may look best in various shades of pink and plum.


Remember that finding eye shadow colors that match your eye color can be
a tricky process. The above suggestions are just guidelines and there are
always exceptions. Remember to experiment and consult with an expert if
you need guidance.
