Go ahead! Ask your questions–now’s the time to get product recommendations, comparisons, or just find out what my favorite moisturizer is. I’ll be keeping an eye out on this post so I can answer questions quickly aka today! Feel free to chime in with your answer to someone else’s question, too!
One of my most frequently asked questions in makeup is: what color eyeshadow will suit my ______ colored eyes?
Generally speaking, both artists and makeup artists are knowledgeable about the color wheel, which displays several colors in a circle. Complimentary colors are opposite of each other; for example, red’s complimentary color is green.
Typically, the following is advised:
Green eyes: Purples, pinks, and reds
Blue eyes: Oranges, coppers, golds
Hazel eyes: Warm tones, bronzes, greens
Brown eyes: Browns, bronzes, greens
Gray eyes: Grays, cool tones, brown
Do you agree? Do you find that the colors that make your eyes “pop” are complimentary? I have hazel eyes, and in that respect, both greens and bronzy colors do work well; depending on the hue, it will either bring out the green or the brown/gold flecks in my eyes.
