It’s easy to get stuck wearing the same color palette on your eyes every day, and one the most common questions we receive at Beautylish HQ is, “How do I make my eyes pop?” If you’re tired of typical eye color pairings, we’re here to show you some alluring and unexpected shades that will give your peepers the attention they deserve.
For Green Eyes
Sunset undertones in a bold amber hue bring out the yellow and teal nuances in verdant eyes. Green and orange are split complementary on the color wheel, so they intensify one another without clashing. Blend a copper cream eye shadow all over the lid and in the corners of the eye.
Hazel eyes can pretty much rock any color with confidence. But our favorite vibrant pairing? A royal blue hue! A clean blue liner brightens up camouflage-colored peepers and brings out any exotic amber and yellow undertones when smudged on the water line.
Since sapphire eyes are such a statement on their own, many with blue eyes don’t often venture into the world of vivid eye makeup. But if you’re looking for a subtle splash of color, try a wash of magenta or fuchsia shadow. Think Elizabeth Taylor, electrified!
Brown-eyed Beauties can pull off any color from brights to pastels, but let’s take a step back and desaturate. Gray gets a bad rap, but the slate shade transforms on brown eyes. The silvery tones contrast with the warmth of chocolate eyes, intensifying their amber tones. Keep the look multi-dimensional with a shimmering pewter smoky eye.
