Eye Shadow Colors for your Eye Color

 We want people to notice our beautiful eyes not our beautiful eye shadow. Wearing the right color eye shadow can bring out the natural eye color. Eye shadow colors that are opposite of your eye color will bring out the intensity of your eye color. They are called complimentary colors.
For blue eyes, orange is opposite. Shades of peach, copper and warm brown will bring out the blue of your eyes. Taupe, gold, plum and charcoal are also very complimentary for blue eyes. The old rule of thumb is blue eyed people should not wear blue eye shadow. The thinking was the blue shadow will detract from the blue of the eyes. I find that some blue shadows look great on blue eyed people. Navy and deep blue gray are very flattering. Avoid light and bright blues however. People will only notice at the eye shadow not your eyes.  



Red and red violet are complimentary colors for green and yellow green so eye shadow with a bit of red or purple in them work well. Copper, rust, warm brown, burgundy and violet look fabulous on green eyes. Plums, dark purples, taupes, bronzes and charcoals are also great choices. They say green eyes should not wear green shadow as it will detract from the green of the eyes. I think the right color green will work. Blackened greens look great on green eyes.


It is hard to say what the complimentary color for brown is since brown is a mix of colors. There are so many shades of brown eyes. The shades of brown go from light golden brown to dark chocolate brown. You have to look at the colors in the brown. Eyes that are a warm brown have a bit of orange in them so blue would be complimentary. A very dark brown eye can almost have a purple tinge. Golden colors would be opposite.

You can also take a close look at the iris of the eyes. You may see flecks of colors such as green, copper or gold. This gives you a hint of what shadow colors will bring out your eye color. Try a warm golden brown to match the gold flecks. Try a deep green to match the green flecks.

Eye shadow in shades of purple, blue and brown look great on all shades of brown eyes.  Deep mahoganies, espressos, coppers and charcoals are also good choices.
