There are certain colors that can make your eye color really pop. Typically you would look at the color wheel, find your eye color, and see what color is on the opposite side of the wheel. One of my all time favorite eyeshadows is Amber Lights by Mac. Its a vibrant orangey bronze color that is perfect for Summer! Here’s a shot of me wearing Amber Lights….

To find the best shadow for your eye color….
First find your eye color on the color chart. Then, look at neighboring shades within the same color family to build a monochromatic palette, or directly opposite shades to build a complementary palette. If you have blue/green eyes like me stick with forest green, sages, mosses, and green-golds for a monochromatic look. To really make eyes pop try mixing pinks, purples, roses and mauves.
The best makeup for BLUE eyes is navy, blue-based grey and silver eyeshadow. Conversely, browns, coppers and peaches, plus orange- or yellow-based shades achieve a complementary look.
For Brown eyes makeup in teals, blues, purples, and pinks in addition to neutrals like chocolates, bronzes, coppers, and taupes look best.
Some of my other favorite Mac eyeshadows are Cranberry, Mulch and Plum Dressing. What are your top three favorite eyeshadows for your eye color?!
