Me too! I have hazel/ amber eyes (grats to my dad with the amber-ness) and I really like pinky purples to offset the amber in my eyes :3

Lavender for blue eyes- it looks more natural than you’d think! Stay away from pinks if you have any red undertones above your eyes. An ivory base with lavender highlights on the lid works great for my blue eyes and pale skin.

I find all shades of pink, lavenders, purples (incl mauve hues), and may try golds. I have blue eyes:)

Interesting I love pinks and gold with my blue eyes but I cannot pull off cold toned purples like lavender. They just look awful.

I have green eyes. I find bronzes, coppers, plums,and black/ grey to be very flattering.

Light eye shadow colors make me look lifeless. 🙁

waiting for Mellan’s Friday post
My question is what work on dark eyes? my eyes are almost black , my skin is fair and my hair also black

What I’ve found works best on fair skin with very dark brown eyes (like mine) is soft golds or copper colors, especially in the corners! Looks very good when it has a sparkle to it, very flattering 🙂

I have dark, almost black eyes too and find gunmetal metallic, purple/lavender and navy are very flattering, though almost any colour can be pulled off once it goes with your skin tone.

Hi! My eyes are the same. I have warm skin and I find I can wear almost any color and it makes my eyes pop!

I have dark brown eyes. I think most colours work except yellowy shades are it makes me look sick as I have yellowy Asian skin.

I have light hazel eyes, I really like muted purples and golden green colours ( like sumptuous olive , and shale)
Also find light golds and bronze colours are also flatering
For reference I have blonde hair and olive skin.

I have blue eyes (NW30) and find that warm browns/bronzy colors are very flattering for an every day look. I love MAC Woodwinked (Amazing!!!) Peachy orange/pink colors are nice too. The only colors I don’t really like are blues (although teal liners are pretty on the waterline)

I have green eyes that are bright but dark. Purples, mauves, pink, red, anything coppery or orange or rust and anything mid-tone and sort of greyed out and dirty.

Some of MAC’s mustard colors like Sun Blonde and Golden Gaze look surprisingly gorgeous too.

Blues, greens and yellow/gold/silver look terrible unless they’re just right.

I have dark brown monolid eyes….believe or not….bright, loud colors with sparkles like UD seem best…all .blues, greens, gold, silver, purple undertone….no orange or red or yellow or bright pink…look bloodshot and dark matte browns and black give me the black eye look.

Warm purples, theoretically, to complement the green in my eyes, although I don’t really wear them that often (at least in comparison to every other color combined?). Now I want to do a look with MAC’s Trax, ha.

I have green eyes and smokey colors and browns make my eyes stand out more. Purples, too. Satin Taupe is pretty much the holy grail, it’s a blend of all three of those tones!

Ugh trying not to buy more makeup but now you guys make me want satin taupe. May have to stop by mac tomorrow.

Hazel/green eyes here and I especially like how they contrast with most browns and taupes and just about any berry, pink, or purple. I find that blues and greens, especially bright ones, bring out the darker brownish tones in my eyes, which can also be great.

I have brown eyes and tan skin so I love bronzes, golds, and purples (my favorite color for eyeshadows!). I’ve been dying to try MUFE No. 92 for such a long time.
