When it comes to eye shadow makeup, there are so many colors and combinations that it can seem overwhelming deciding which shades would look best with your eye color. However, there are only a few basic rules for eye color, and these rules can in many instances be broken. Today’s fashion and makeup styles are bold, so most people can get away with being bold with their eye color – as long as they remember to blend in the colors the right way, and use the right contrasting and complimenting colors – not clashing. A variety of eye shadows will look great on any eye color, so if you have a shade you’re dying to try but haven’t had the courage before, now is the time.
Brown-eyed girls are in luck! They can get away with just about any type of eye shadow and liner color. Natural brown hues go across the board to look good with every eye color, but they’re the perfect match with brown eyes. Other colors that are beautiful with brown eyes are purples, neutral and warm coppers, dark browns, and black. Fun eyeliner colors to try with brown eyes would be vibrant purple, gold and copper, rich blue, and even white.
Like brown eyes, green and hazel eyes also look great with warm brown tones. Lighter browns make green eyes look soft and romantic. Burgundy and reddish brown make the natural eye color pop, and violet is simply striking. Black eye shadow and liner is the perfect color to frame green and hazel eyes. A good rule to remember about black is that it goes well with every eye color.
