For some reason matching eyeshadow colors seems to be more of a hassle than fun. Yes, you are allowed to wear whatever color your want. But what compliments your eye color best? Stop stressin’ cause that’s what I’m about to share:


Baby Blues

I love any orange/coral hint with blue eyes too. Not feeling daring enough for orange? No probblem — most of us aren’t. Go for something with an orange undertone like terracota, copper, brick or a bronze. Mascara looks good on everyone, but the contrast of the black against the blue really brings out the beautiful blue hues.



Hazel Eyes That Hypnotiiiize

Hazel eyes are a combination of brown and green. They usually have lots of specks of colors in them, and if you want to bring out those specks, go with gold and champagne hues. If you want to bring out the green in your hazel eyes, red hues/undertones are where it’s at. Just blend this red in towards the outter edge of your lids for a suddle yet obvious compliment.



Gawgous Greens

Hazel and green both go well with the purple family. Plums, purples, lavenders all are beautiful colors to pair with green. A smokey eye with some plum blended out, or maybe a champagne and lavender combo? Ugh, gawgous. If you’re looking for something more daytime try sticking with the brown tones.



Brown Eyed Girls

Brown eyes are da bomb. You know why? Cause they can wear any color and it’ll compliment! So we can break these browns down a little further. For lighter browns, warm and bronzy shadows will bring out the brown. And for deeper chocolate browns shoot for a navy or violet.
