The Best Eyeshadow Colors For Brown, Blue, Hazel & Green Eyes

Here’s a roundup of the eyeshadow colors you should be wearing, according to your eye color, to make your eyes really stand out.

Brown eyes are pretty versatile when it comes to eyeshadow color. In other words, if you have brown eyes you can get away with wearing way more colors than someone with blue eyes. Through personal experience, I’ve learned that jewel tones look the best on brown eyes. Greens, purples and blues make brown eyes a little more lively. Copper and gold also suit brown eyes perfectly. If you want to wear a neutral color, try pairing it with a colored eyeliner for a subtle pop.

Blue eyes can be tricky depending on your hair color and complexion. For the most part, blue-eyed beauty’s can get away with wearing colors in the orange, pink, purple and gold family. Don’t be scared by the thought of orange! Think copper, rust, bronze, etc. If you insist on wearing blue eyeshadow, make sure it’s darker than your eye color. Opt for deep or midnight blue. Also, if you have light-colored hair, try using brown mascara instead of black.

Hazel eyes are a combination of green and brown eyes. Since they are a combination, you can get away with wearing colors that suit both those families. Hazel eyes tend to change depending on the colors that person is wearing. Neutral shades like bronze, gold and copper shades really complement hazel eyes. Greens will bring out the green in hazel eyes and purples will bring out the gray, while still accenting green.

Green is the least common eye color, and by far the prettiest, in my opinion. If you want to make your green eyes stand out even more then purple is the way to go. Other great shadows to try include neutrals like taupe, beige and gold. Try a smokey eye with charcoal colors and make your green eyes the center of attention. Much like blue eyes, if you want to wear green shadow then choose a deep green color.
