How to Make Your Eye Color Pop

Beyond the Shadows: 3 Tips For Making Your Eye Color Pop

By now, you probably know that based on the color wheel, there are certain eye shadows that make each eye color pop. Purple, for instance, is great for green-eyed girls, while bronze looks lovely on those with blue eyes. Brown-eyed beauties, however, are the luckiest of the bunch, as most shades look great on them. But there are other makeup shades that can give you a distinctive glow, too. Let's step away from the traditional shadow route right now and look at other ways that makeup can make your eye color stand out. Check out my tips when you read more.

  • Green eyes: Try a coral or peachy-toned lipstick to bring out the green tones in your eyes, like Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen ($10). A simple, soft peach shadow and blush, along with a swipe of mascara and espresso-toned eyeliner, are all you need to complete the look.
  • Blue eyes: Blue shadow on blue eyes can wash out the complexion, but not if you go with a dark navy blue. It will help to bring out the cool tones in your eyes without a super matchy-matchy element. Plus, the darkness of the liner will bring out the white in your eyes. Try Paul & Joe Pencil Eye Liner in Charcoal Black ($18), a deep, navy-toned black or CoverGirl Queen Collection Liner For Eyes in Midnight Blue ($5).
  • Brown eyes: For a complementary option, try a plum-toned lipstick to play off your beautifully warm peepers, like Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin ($18), a deep plum-purple creme. Finish the look off with a slightly shimmery taupe or subtle gold-colored shadow along with some soft black liner.

    A burgundy shadow with red (not purple) tones really makes my light, blue-green eyes pop. I get the most compliments when I wear that shadow.
