The Best Eyeshadow Palettes for Your Eye Color

Sometimes it can be hard to find the right eyeshadow color. It is difficult to find the shades that will make your eyes pop without outshining them. Here is a guide to find the shades that will look best with your eye color, and eyeshadow palettes that will help your eyes gleam! 


Blue Eyes:

One way to make your blue eyes pop is to wear orange-toned eyeshadow. Orange and blue are on opposite sides of the color wheel, so wearing orange will make your blue eyes stand out.

Brown Eyes:

All eyeshadow colors look amazing with brown eyes! Depending on your shade of brown, some eyeshadows can bring out different undertones. Dark brown eyes really stand out against red and garnet shades, while golds and greens can pop with lighter brown eyes.

The Urban Decay Naked palette is a staple in so many makeup collections, but a palette that really compliments deep brown eyes is the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. It comes at a high price point of $54, but also offers incredibly high-quality shadows.


Hazel Eyes:

Purple and green are on opposite sides of the color wheel, so purple eyeshadow on hazel eyes can really help to pull out those green shades. Green is also a great choice to help highlight those flecks. Purple and green eyeshadow can seem intimidating, but both colors are extremely flattering for hazel eyes.

Just like hazel eyes, purple eyeshadow really makes green eyes pop. Along with purple, bronze and brown eyeshadows can subtly enhance green eyes. By wearing neutral eyeshadows, green eyes have the ability to stand out.
