Enhancing you eye colour:
Hello everyone! Today’s post is about enhancing your eye colour using eye shadows and eye liners. This great tip will help those of you that are just starting to use makeup, or want to start experimenting with different colours! It’s very simple, so carry on reading!
Here is a colour wheel, with all the Primary and Secondary colours. Very simply, eyeshadows and eyeliners opposite your eye colour on the colour wheel are the ones to use. This doesn’t just mean the colour directly opposite to yours, but the shade either side of it too!
Therefore, if you have blue eyes, orange is the opposite colour. Orange isn’t the nicest colour to wear for everyday make up, so this translates into shades (around orange) with a warm undertone: peach, bronze, copper & golds.
Green eyes: purples, pinks, burgundy, and warm tone browns.
Brown eyes: blues, teals and purples.
If colours such as purple and blues aren’t really your thing, then you can use eyeliner instead. This means you can still use the colours you’re comfortable with wearing, and then you can add colour on your upper or lower water line to enhance your eyes.
If you have hazel eyes (green with brown specs), then khaki, plums, pinks, warm browns and vibrant purples will bring out the green rather than the brown in your eyes.
Amber: blues (light/pastel blue to navy), coppers and peaches.
Brown eye shadows are very commonly used, and are much more flattering than black and dark greys; however, these colours will still suit every eye colour. If you were to mix all primary and secondary coloured paints together, you would end up with a dark brown. Therefore meaning, that any one, with any coloured eyes can wear brown eyeshadows and eyeliners. It won’t necessarily enhance all eye colours, but it will definitely suit everyone!
I also personally believe that both gold and silver shadows suit all eye colours too, depending on the sort of look you are going for.
I hope this has helped you in some sort of way. If you’d like to see more posts like this one, be sure to let me know in the comments. Also let me know if there are any celebrity looks that you would like me to recreate too!
