I do wear blue shadows to go with my eyes but I don’t wear it very often alone; usually in a combination with another colour. But still don’t do it that often, experimentation has lead to finding colours that make my eyes pop!

My eyes are brown, so yes I do! I wear all shades because I work in makeup, and I don’t think there are any rules forbidding people to wear different colours if the application technique is right!

No I don’t really wear any browns on my eyes. I’m far too fair for it and it washes me out. When I do I try to keep them much softer than my eye color.

I have green eyes and wearing green is just a no-no, mostly because I hate the colour green lol. I usually wear purple and blue eyeshadow cause it really makes my eyes pop! Neutrals are boring.

Yes, I do. It’s kind of hard to avoid, since my eyes are the oddest mixture of green, blue and even grey, depending on the lighting. It’s quite annoying, actually, but I do love my grey eye shadows and will keep using them.

My eyes are multicolored, and I don’t think I’ve ever worn blue and green eyeshadows together that actually match my eyes. Otherwise, I love greens, but don’t usually like blues.

Not the exact same shade, but I do wear colours in the same family since my eyes are dark brown and it’s kinda hard to avoid brown shades. The colour I’m least likely to wear is blue, as I don’t think it does anything for me.

I have light blue eyes and I wear blues although not a lot- turquoise, cobalt, navy, etc. but nothing that matches exactly though, I tend to avoid greys too for the most part since they tend to make my eyes look very grey.

I have dark brown eyes and most of my shadows are neutrals so, yes indeed, I wear shadows the same colour as my eyes. I’ve read that brown is the one eye colour to which that rule about not matching your eye and shadow colours does not apply. I don’t wear a wall of dark brown…I’ve usually got something lighter on my lids or at least on the inner 1/3 if I’m wearing dark brown shadow in the crease and outer lid and I’ll sometimes use a bright teal blue (like MAC’s Birds n Berries) under my lower lashes for a little hit of colour and contrast.

My eyes are dark brown and I love wearing browns and neutrals. I usually mix it with a little bit of purple or taupe eyeshadow, for some contrast. 🙂

Yes because I love blues and golds (blue with a gold inner ring lol). Honestly what shade your wear is a personal preference.

I personally love peach/apricot tones but I’m also aware that my eye can look green with it on. ^_^

My eyes are blue-green, and I don’t really like those colors for shadows. I will wear teal, navy, or deep emerald eyeliners. These make my eyes look greener.
