How to Find the Perfect Eyeshadow to Enhance Your Eye Color



Back by popular demand here is how to find the perfect eyeshadow to enhance your eye color! Finding the perfect eyeshadow to enhance your eye color is not easy, which is why your Heroes at UnitWise put together this guide for pairing the right makeup to your client's eye color. Think back to art class, more specifically the color wheel. Use contrasting shades to draw attention to the eyes and intensify the color.


Eyeshadows to Enhance Your Eye Color


Eyeshadows for Brown Eyes

One of the many fantastic qualities about brown eyes is their versatility. To make brown eyes pop reach for contrasting cooler shade like silver, gray, and charcoal. Clients can gain a lighter appearance by using select green tones. Lastly, try adding a touch of intensity by adding black in the crease.





Eyeliner:
  • Purple, jade, bronze, & brown
Eyeshadows:
  • Monochromatic
    • Brown, black, bronze & taupe
  • Complementary
    • Blue, green, violets, & lilac

Eyeshadows for Blue Eyes

For your clients with blue eyes, you might suggest neutral light tones because of their natural light. Soft shades like coral and champagne will catch the glint in the iris but will not distract. Any highly pigmented colors such as black or deep purple are generally too harsh and cause blue eyes to appear smaller. Instead consider shadows with orange undertones such as terra-cotta, gold and a light burnt sienna.


Eyeliner:
  • Brown, navy, & grey 
Eyeshadows:
  • Monochromatic
    • Navy, grey & silver 
  • Complementary 
    • Coral, champagne, copper

Eyeshadows for Green Eyes

If your clients have green eyes, select violet liner, and shadows to add contrasting color. The shades of plum, amethyst, and violet help to bring out the natural brightness for a piercing look. Green is also complemented by reddish undertones because of its position on the color wheel.
