Blue Eyes = Coral or Champagne

When you've got piercing blue eyes, you really don't need  much to make them stand out. Your best bet is to stay with light neutral tones in coral and champagne shades that will catch the glint in the iris. Stay away from overly dark smokey looks that will take away from your natural beauty.

Grey Eyes = Monochrome

If you have grey eyes, go for sooty, smoky shades that match and enhance your eyes. The trick here is to apply misty greys or even silvery blues to the crease, leaving your lid neutral to add depth and contrast.

Green Eyes = Purples and Shimmery Browns

Like blue eyes, green eyes don't need much to make 'em stand out. But if you're looking to play them up, go for purples! If you want something more natural, shimmery browns will have a similar effect.

Hazel Eyes = Metallics and Pastels

Hazel eyes are so interesting and unique—every person has a subtly different shade of hazel! Typically hazel eyes have green or yellow flecks, so stick to metallics in order to make those flecks pop. Dusty pastels also tend to make hazel eyes sparkle, and they're also right on trend.

Brown Eyes = Anything Goes

Just about everything works on brown eyes, lucky you! But if you really want to give them some extra loving, try a salmon or a bronzy gold.

Dark Eyes = Rich Pigments

If you've got dark brown eyes, a surefire way to make them look bigger is to splash them with vibrant pigments in violet, blue or silver. Also, don't skip out on the eyeliner. Add some extra black to your waterline to make them pop.
