What's Your Color?
By Alexandra, age 16, Michigan
Each eye color deserves to be well-matched with an eye shadow designed to brighten and bring out the color pigment of your eyes. Acknowledging what looks great on your eyes can enhance their color, making them more desirable, and in the process bring out your natural beauty. A lot of girls have the same problem - they're looking for a gorgeous eye shadow to wear, but they're indecisive as to which one will look best on them. No more worries though. Here are a few quick tips to bring out your eyes according to each eye color.
Blue eyes: I've seen many blue-eyed girls make the common mistake of pairing their eyes with a blue eye shadow. It may be pretty, but to make your eyes pop it's not the right color. Those with blue eyes should try neutral-toned colors, like brown or taupe. Orange also looks good on blue eyes, as well as purple, pink, and gray.
Brown eyes: Brown eyes are the most flexible when it comes to eye shadows, as they can get away with wearing almost any color. However, to make brown eyes pop, the best eye shadow colors are green, pink, and blue.

Green and hazel eyes: Making green eyes pop requires experimenting with various purples. If you're looking for a more natural look however, warmer colors such as browns and soft oranges play well. Earth tones, taupe, browns, and purples all match up with green eyes. Nevertheless, because green eyes sometimes possess hints of other colors, experimenting with each eye shadow color listed is a must.
Remember, the process of applying eye shadow does not have to be a difficult one. Also, keep in mind that the color of eye shadow you're wearing should not only coordinate with your eyes, but your outfit as well. Applying multiple layers of eye shadow may not be necessary. Sometimes less really is more. At times, all your eyes need is a small hint of color to make them stand out.
