The secret to making your eyes pop: the color wheel. Find the best shades to draw attention to brown, blue, green, and hazel eyes.
Making your eye color stand out goes back to the basics of the color wheel. Using contrasting hues draws attention to eyes and intensifies their color. "Whatever your eye color is, you want choose an eyeshadow on the opposite side of the wheel to intensify your eye color," says New York City makeup artist Michelle Coursey.
Brown eyes actually contain shades of orange and red, making blues and greenish golds the best shadow picks. Bright blues are Coursey's first choice, but if you're not up for going bold with cobalt, navy is a more subtle option. Coursey suggests putting dark blue shadow or liner next to the lash line for a hint of color. Subdued green-gold shadow keeps the look from being overly colorful.
Deep navy eyeliner is an easy way to incorporate shades of blue into a look without going too bold.
