Eye makeup Colors

Choosing Eye Makeup color is easy. Sticking to a few ground rules will make this process fast and easy. Wearing eye makeup colors that complement you allows your beauty to come through naturally.

There are two things to incorporate in choosing eye makeup color, your skin and your eye color. Sometimes women choose an accent color to match shoes or a purse. Sometimes this works, but sometimes it can look crazy-color. Your face and eye color are the first thing to consider.

First, determine whether you have warm or cool skin tone. This will focus your selection.

Then, contrary to popular belief, pick shades that don't EXACTLY MATCH your eye color if you want to focus on having more of a dramatic eye makeup look.

Usually choose colors that are not exactly the same as your eye color. This will avoid a monotone or even overal gray look.

If you are looking for more eye-catching interest, always vary the shade, even just slightly, to make things a little more exciting.

Nobody needs to have identical rules qwhen it comes to color.

If you are prefer a monochromatic look, there is nothing stopping you from using a similar makeup colors as your eyes. Define your personal rules.

Brown Eyes

Women with brown eyes are fortunate. They have the widest selection of shades available to them. Playing up brown eyes isn't difficult at all. Almost any color will suit them.

Greens, champagnes, bronzes, golds, browns and blues are just some of the shades that play beautifully with brown eyes. You can also try shades of beige, peach, corals, copper, pinks, pale purples (pinky purples) and browns. Brown eyes also look great in grey, plums as well as burnt oranges.

The intensity of color you wear depends on your skin tone. The lighter the skin tone, the less intense color you would use. The same rule applies to darker skin tones.

Eyeshadow color for Brown Eyes

Blue Eyes

Try a brown-orange. Also, taupe, gray, violet, purple, deep blue, silver. To emphasize blue eyes use brown and rose shadows. Warm hues will contrast the coldness of blue eyes, making them really pop.

Don't go for aqua or cerulean shades that will compete with your blue color. Go with a very different-colored shadow for an eye-opening contrast.

Eyeshadow color for Blue Eyes

Green Eyes

Perhaps try a pimento brown – this contains a subtle red undertone that is calmed by the dominating brown.

Many women with green eyes have fair skin and freckles. If you have a light complexion, try to avoid eye shadow that is too deep or shimmery. However, some women with green eyes have olive skin. These women should avoid silver and blue shadows.

All women with green eyes look great in brown colors from light beiges to deep chocolate browns. Purples and pinks also complement with green eyes. Some people will suggest that you shouldn't wear green shadow if you have green eyes. However, light green can be very flattering when applied sparingly.

Eyeshadow color for Green Eyes

Hazel Eyes

Women blessed with hazel eyes are envied by everyone else. They are able to enjoy the widest spectrum of shadow shades. Many opt for hazel contacts in order to vamp up their looks and shadow colors. While eye colors such as blue or brown depend upon a specific shade or two for optimal beauty, hazel eyes support a wider sampler platter of color choices. It's almost like dipping into all colors for brown and green eyes together.

If you have hazel eyes, avoid using an excessive amount of blue-hued shadow. It can dull down hazel eyes and have the opposite effect of what you hope to achieve.

Go toward more neutral colors such as brown. Gold, pink, lavender, plum, khaki and mocha are great ones too. Purple shades contrast your color, making eyes look dramatic. Warmer shades of mocha complement the green hue in hazel eyes, giving a natural effect. Soft pink is another good color. It is irresitable for a romantic look. Another great, vibrant color to use is a teal hue like the one in the palette below. It can really make your eyes pop!

Eyeshadow color for Hazel Eyes

Another general guideline for eyeshadow application is this - OPPOSITES ENHANCE.

When choosing a dark contrasting color, there are many approaches.

Here is one. To further enhance your eye color, choose an accent color that is opposite of your own eye colour.

The two colors side by side (your natural eye color and the eye shadow) intensify each other instead of competing.

This is where the color wheel comes in handy. Colors on the other side of the color wheel make the best contrast colors.

If you have green eyes, select purple, pink, lilac shades. for blue eyes, choose peach, gold and browns with a red or orange undertone to make eyes POP!

The same applies for brown and hazel eyes.
