Unless your a qualified make up artist or you just have a really good knowledge of make up products and application, then you may not know what colour in eyeshadow you should be wearing to best compliment your eye colour. Of course, there is nothing stopping you from wearing whatever shade’s you like, but as a woman I think it’s important for us to know what exact shade will suit our individual eye colour.

In today’s post I have put together a list of what colours you should be wearing to compliment your eye shade, and what colours you should probably try and avoid. The three most common eye colours are blue, brown and green so there is something to suit everyone.

Brown Eyes
Brown eyed girls have the widest range of colours to choose from when it comes to eye make-up. Depending on what exact shade of brown your eyes are, there are certain colours that will compliment your eyes more-so than others. Firstly, you need to determine what shade of brown you have; if your eyes are a light to medium brown then you should stick to deep violets, greens, greys and blue coloured eyeshadow. Avoid any yellow! Be careful not to over-power your shade of brown by limiting the use of darker colours in the crease. If you like the ‘smokey eye’ look, then stick to shimmery eyeshadows to brighten up the area and use grey shades instead of dark browns to smoke it out.

If your eyes are a darker shade like chocolate brown, then deep plums, golds and bronze toned eyeshadow will work really well. The use of dark eyeliners like navy blue, black and plum will also really bring out the brown in your eyes. You can draw attention to your eyes and open them up by using lighter shades like peaches and taupe’s and by lining the upper lash line using a black liquid eyeliner.
