How to Pick the Best Eyeliner Shade for Your Eye Color
The easiest way to add a wash of color to your peepers? Colorful eyeliner!
We're all for experimentation and wearing whatever makes you look and feel best, but truth be told there are tried-and-true shades that make each eye color pop and really stand out. Here's how to pick the best eyeliner hue to complement your eye color.
So you've got those baby blues, lucky you! The method for finding the perfect shade is all about contrasting colors, so for blue-eyed babes, copper and gold liner will make your eyes look even bluer. You can also reach for just about any warm metallic like champagne or amber, which will bring out the flecks of color in your iris.
This might sound surprising, but green and red make the perfect pairing. Red is opposite green on the color wheel, so for green-eyed gals, select shades with red undertones. The most flattering are purple amethyst, bronze, rust and pretty pinks.
Hazel eyes are so gorgeous, but sometimes they need that little extra radiance to make them stand out. Emerald and gold enhances the green tones in hazel eyes and adds depth and richness. With a simple stroke of green or gold, you'll have irresistible tiger eyes.
For brown eyes, it's all about playing up your undertones. To enhance the specs of light in your iris, we suggest midnight blue tones and striking ambers. Equally as complementary, although much less daring, are earthy brown tones which create the most sultry brown smoke.
