This is a complex subject as there is a lot to comprehend.
To get a better understanding, we need to look at the colour wheel and it all becomes simpler. Think ‘opposites attract’ as that is the key to finding your shade.
Right – so take a look at the colour wheel and find your eye colour. For example, let’s go with blue eyes. The colour opposite is orange. Now, that’s not to say you need to put on bright orange eyeshadow and limit yourself to that colour. What this means is, you should go for shades that have an undertone of orange such as coppers, bronze, browns, salmon etc. These are the colours that will make blue eyes pop!
Green eyes – the opposite colour is red so colours like purples, plums, burgundy, pinks and warm browns will really help to enhance green eyes.
Brown eyes – well, you are one of the lucky ones, as you can wear pretty much any colour you like. Brown eyes are enhanced by blue (navy blue looks beautiful on brown eyes) – you can also try purples and greens. It’s all about contrast.
Saying all that, there are no set rules, just guidelines. 😉 You can wear whatever colour you like, however there are certain colours that will make your eyes stand out.
There is another factor to consider and that’s undertones (very important) but I will touch on that in another post.
Experiment and see what you prefer.
