Find the Most Flattering Eyeshadow For Your Hair Color

It's no secret that the right eyeshadow, lipstick or liner color can really enhance your best assets.

It's customary to use your eye color as a guide to choose an eyeshadow color, but your hair also plays a big role in your overall color palette and tone. Below, see which shadow color enhances your luscious locks best.

Blonde

Complement the warm tones of your buttery blonde with equally warm eyeshadow tones. For you, it's all about the G L O W, so stick to honey hues along with  peach, pink, gold and champagne, which will make your hair and skin pop. Shimmer is your BFF too, so lay on the sparkle!

Light to Medium Brown

There's always one shade that can rock anything, and when it comes to hair color and eyeshadows, it's the babes with light to medium brown locks that can sport just about any eyeshadow shade. For something really natural and pretty, you can't go wrong with earthy nude tones—the Urban Decay Naked palette was basically created for you. If you want something with more edge, try a gunmetal gray or a deep blue hue for some tonal play.

Dark Brown

There's something so exotic and sassy about dark brown hair. If you have espresso or rich chocolate-colored hair, reach for shadows in plum, burgundy or moody metallic hues. These colors all play off your deep brown hair and make your skin and eyes pop.

Red Hair

Ginger gals naturally have a warmer tinge thanks to the vibrant shade of their dashing crimson mane. A super classic clean eye is always a safe bet to let your hair take center stage, but if you're itching to rock something fun, reach for shadow shades in the green and pink color families. This will create a natural, fairy-like flush.

Black Hair

Don't let your hair steal the show! Black hair is so dark and sumptuous that it tends to take the attention away from your face and features. To balance this out, go for a dark smokey eye with charcoal and gray metallics, and don't forget to load up on liner, as this will make the whites of your eyes pop.
