Complementary colors

A difficult word, but it is actually very simple. Complementary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. That means: red and green, yellow and purple, blue and orange. So keep this system in mind when choosing an eyeshadow color. With cold eye color, it is best to choose a warm eyeshadow. With warm eye colors, it is just the other way around.

The color for your eyes

Brown eyes
If you have brown eyes, you are actually very lucky! There are a lot of colors that suit your eyes well. You can even have striking colors like green, purple, blue, and pink. If you prefer something more subtle, warm, earthy browns with an orange undertone are the way to go. They are guaranteed to look beautiful on you!

Blue eyes
Blue is seen as a ‘cool’ color. That is why warm shades of eyeshadow suit your eyes best. Think of colors such as brown, copper, burgundy, terracotta, and orange. These warm earth tones will make your blue viewers speak even more. Do you prefer something daring? Then lilac, purple, or coral are also a good option.

Green eyes
Do you have green eyes? Then it is best to choose an eyeshadow in the colors purple, red, and brown. They make the most of your eyes. Groundings also work well with green eyes. With red lipstick, you make your eyes stand out even more. But beware: a striking eyeshadow and a bright lip color can be a bit too much of a good thing. Focus on one of the two.
