HOW TO MAKE YOUR EYE COLOR STAND OUT
Expert Tips and Eyeshadow Ideas
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT YOUR EYES
While looking at your eyes, you might notice that a secondary color is highlighted in your eye. We recommend using that secondary color as an eyeshadow color option because that color will always draw more attention to your eyes. This hidden shade will naturally accentuate and flatter your eye color, no matter how dark or light it might be.
Pro tip: Opt for using colors opposite or complimentary to your natural eye hue as they are best for making your secondary color pop.
Neutral shades with warm tones such as soft browns, dark browns, tans, and taupes are all great options for those of you who have green eyes. They serve as simple colors that let the green eyes speak for themselves.
Shades of purple are extra gorgeous on green eyes since they highlight the gold or yellow flecks found in some green eyes. We recommend using a lighter shade of purple, like lavender, during the day to create a simple yet chic look and opting for darker plum purples during a night out.
Mauve (pale, bluish purple) eyeshadow is a perfect choice for green eyes that have a hint of grey in them. The undertones in mauve instantly bring out the natural beauty that green eyes have.

Warm Champagne and Golds
Warm champagne and gold eyeshadows are a dream for blue eyes. These tones are extremely simple but bring out so much beauty. We promise you’ll see your blue eyes sparkle whenever you opt for these shades.
Earthy brown tones effortlessly enhance blue eyes. If you’re looking to enhance your look, we recommend pairing brown tones with rich black eyeliner, making your look more dramatic but not overpowering.
The rich undertones in berry shades perfectly contrast cool blue eye colors and make them glisten beautifully.
Since brown and green are both earthy tones, they work beautifully together, especially for makeup purposes. Forest green will brighten up any light brown eye and show off the beauty brown eyes are made of. We recommend using a shimmery green shadow if you have dark brown eyes and light green for all of you who have light or medium brown eyes.
A darker denim blue will undoubtedly deepen any brown eye and make them stand out. We love adding a vibrant blue shadow on dark brown eyes to help showcase the dramatic, show stopping brown color.
Most brown eyes have flecks of yellow or golden pigments, especially when they hit the sunlight, giving them a natural sparkle. Adding a champagne color will add to that sparkle and simply make brown eyes glisten, which we’re all here for.

Purples on hazel eyes
Purple is a great option for everyone with hazel eyes because it brings out the gold flecks in the eyes. If your hazel eye leans more toward the green side, we recommend using purple eyeshadow to make them pop more.
For those of you who have hazel eyes and are wanting a more daring look, orange is the perfect shade for you. This bolder hue will enhance your hazel beauty and provide you with the boldness you are looking for.
Warm brown eyeshadows instantly intensify any hazel eye color and create a simple, gorgeous look. They work great for both day and night wear as well!
We hope these eyeshadow colors gave you a few ideas on what eyeshadow you want to use for your next makeup look. Go have fun exploring which colors work best for your specific eye color and help give you the ultimate POP you want!
