Women have different eye colors and picking the right eye makeup can be challenging for some. Would copper shades look good on blue eyes? Can ladies with green eyes enjoy colored mascara? Would a purple shadow look gorgeous on hazel eyes?
Find the right hues for your eye color and look stunning in them, even when itâ€™s only a typical day. Weâ€™re giving you quick tips on how to make your face burst with beauty just by applying the right makeup hues for your eye color.
Blue eyes naturally have cool tones. Ladies with blue eyes have always been head-turners because itâ€™s becoming rare to find someone with such eye color. Even in the US, people with blue eyes are becoming rare. While others prefer natural browns and peaches for their everyday makeup, you can enjoy wearing shades of gray and navy for your monochromatic look. Just imagine how striking youâ€™d look in a corporate ensemble while your eyes are blazing with beauty.
To make your blue eyes stand out, complement your lids by picking warm colors like brown, rust, peach, copper, coral and bronze with orange undertones. Avoid applying blue-green shadow as this will upstage your natural eye color.
Most women in Iceland have green eyes and nobody can argue that theyâ€™re drop dead gorgeous. If youâ€™re one of the few women who have green eyes, youâ€™ll feel almost unique as you share this eye color with only 1-2% of the worldâ€™s population. The best eye shadows for green eyes come in purple hues. These effectively bring out the color of your eyes. If purple is a bit strong for your taste, you can opt for shades of pink, mauve or brown with reddish undertones.
To enhance the color of your iris, add a green eyeliner or green mascara. This will bring intensity to your already gorgeous eyes and will make other women green with envy. What you should avoid are shades of blue.
Women with hazel eyes have the benefit to play with different makeup shades as they are in the borderline of green and brown eyes. Youâ€™ll see women with hazel eyes give a natural appeal because of the gold and gray streaks in their iris. Easily pull off recommended shades for green and brown eyes and youâ€™ll be amazed with the different looks you can achieve just by playing with colors. For Hazel eyes, complement your look with gray and gold shadow. You can also use gold to highlight your eyes if you donâ€™t want it as a makeup base.
Copper, purple and dusty pinks will intensify hazel eyes. If you want to make the green flecks in your eyes stand out, choose lavender or purple as base colors for your shadow. Use a volumizing mascara to make your look more dramatic.

Brown-eyed ladies will enjoy experimenting in all eye makeup shades possible. More than 50% of the worldâ€™s population share the same eye color so you better make a bold statement everytime you walk by! Instead of wearing peach and light brown (or basically the light natural look), make your eyes pop by applying reddish-brown tones. Though your eyes arenâ€™t rare, you can make it look like youâ€™re one of a kind by playing with colors such as dark gray, deep purple, plum or navy blue. Donâ€™t be afraid to play with contrasting colors. The best part of all, you have every right to rock a smoky eye makeup with a smoldering look.
To emphasize light to your dark eyes, always remember to pick shimmery shadows than matte ones. Silver-gray, copper and gold will reflect light on your eyes nicely.
