Choosing the right color eye shadow for you shouldn’t necessarily be based upon the outfit you’re planning on wearing today, or even on your favorite color. Did you know that there are specific shades that complement every eye color, and help to really bring your eyes out? Today, Lionesse shows you some of the best colors and hues you can wear for your eye color, to help those sparkling, beautiful eyes shine through in all of their glory.
Women who are lucky enough to have brown eyes can truly consider themselves, well, lucky – because they can pull just about any eyeshadow shade off, and they look great in nearly all colors. There are some colors that will truly make your eyes pop and look absolutely stunning, which are:
- Light or dark pink
- Chocolate brown
Green eyes are one of the most highly coveted eye colors in the world – everyone who has this eye color should feel blessed, as nearly all colored contact lenses ordered throughout the world are ordered in various shades of green. Green eyes look best in peachy or pink tones, and also in the following colors:
- Lime Green
Did you know that those with blue eyes can all be traced back to a single, solitary ancestral root? Blue eyes are considered a chromosomal abnormality that took place in the form of a single genetic mutation about 6,000 years ago. Who knew? We think they are beautiful regardless, and we know that the best colors there are to accent your gorgeous, sparkling blue eyes are:
Hazel eyes are an interesting cross between the lovely shade of green mentioned above, and brown. They can vary in intensity and color, and can sometimes even appear to have hints of gold or orange in them. Hazel eyes look beautiful with any of the following shades implemented to tie the eye look together:
- Dandelion Yellow
- Deep Purple
If you’ve got another shade of eyes, such as an unnatural tone by means of colored contacts, finding the right shade can be done by picking out the flecks of color within the iris of the contact or eye, and then matching it with colors listed above for the color flecked areas. Say there are flecks of brown inside a violet contact – you will find the brown eye color up above and match the shades there to that color, and end up with a fantastic result.
Matching your eyes with the perfect eyeshadow hues can really help to make your face and eyes look well put together, and these colors can really bring out your eyes to the best of their ability. You will also look younger, brighter eyed, and glowing – all in one.
Be sure to choose a mascara shade that complements your eye color as well. Many mascara hues have flecks of color within them to accent individual eye colors – these should be stated on the front of the packaging.
