Playing around with different eyeshadows and makeup looks is super fun! There are so many diverse pigments and finishes; just thinking about it makes my heart flutter and my wallet cry.

But which eyeshadows truly make your eye colour stand out?

Some might assume the answer is a smokey eye or glittered pigments to draw attention to the eye area.

But the truth is, the key is in the colours.

The central idea is that opposites attract and contrasting colours bring out specific parts of the iris. This may be confusing when looking at a standard colour wheel and trying to apply it to makeup.

So, don't worry, we’ve done the work for you, broken down the facts, busted those myths, and matched eye colours with their ideal, most complimentary eyeshadow quads. No need to thank us!

If you want to know all about the colours that will make your eyes pop, just keep on reading.

Blue Eyes

Because blue eyes are already so dazzling and bright, neutral colours will bring out their clarity. A palette like BH Cosmetics Neutral Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette would be perfect.

If you want to bring out the vibrancy and luminosity of the blue colour, go for warm golds and browns. LA Girl Eye Lux Mesmerizing Eyeshadow 462 Optimize is excellent for bringing out the glint of the eye without being too distracting. 

Grey Eyes

Misty cool-toned shades compliment grey eyes stunningly; especially silvery blue colours. LA Girl Eye Lux Mesmerizing Eyeshadow 471 Polarize is optimal for bringing out the beauty of uniquely grey eyes.

Green Eyes

Warm neutrals and autumn colours truly bring out the striking, vivid nature of green eyes.

To brighten, go for the bronzed, neutral approach, and try LA Girl Eye Lux Mesmerizing Eyeshadow 461 Harmonize.

To truly bring out the colour, go for warm, natural red tones and true, autumn cranberry shades. Check out BYS Berries Eyeshadow Palette 12 Colours and BYS Berries 2 Eyeshadow Palette 12 Colours.

Hazel Eyes

How do you highlight eyes that are already so exotic? Mauves and warm neutrals accentuate the colour and emphasize any light flecks.

For a magnificent mauve look, play around with Maybelline The City Kids Pink Edge Eye & Cheek Palette.

If a golden neutral is more your cup of tea (or pot of gold!), use Milani Spotlight Face & Eye Strobe Palette 03 Golden Light.

Brown Eyes

When it comes to brown eyes, the brighter and bolder, the better. Rich, vibrant purples and spirited blues are your best friends.

LA Girl Fanatic Eyeshadow Palette Wanderlust incorporates the most captivating blues and warm neutrals for blending.

If you like the sounds of an alluring purple look, LA Colors 18 Color Eyeshadow Glam Palette Strange Love is no less than perfect.
