How to Make Your Eyes Pop

The right shadow color can enhance your eyes, making them sparkle and intensifying their color. So, we’ve used the color wheel and color relationships to find the best eyeshadows to enhance your peepers. Simply find your eye color and get ready to blend!  

Expert Tip: As a rule of thumb, if you pair two opposing shades from the color wheel, they’ll be a match made in heaven to intensify your eye color.  

How to Make Blue Eyes Pop

Blue eyes can be mesmerizing and with the right eyeshadow colors you can make them shine even more.  

Blue is a naturally cool color, so pairing this with an orange eyeshadow will create the strongest contrast. Now, we don’t necessarily mean you need to pick a bright tangerine eyeshadow. Shades with a warm, earthy undertone will help to enhance your eyes.  

Warm browns, oranges and peaches are the best eyeshadow colors for blue eyes. Layering them creates the perfect backdrop to make your eyes pop. Add a little more drama at night with golds, bronzes and coppers, which will bring attention to the baby blue flecks in your iris. If your eyes are more of a deep blue, opt for shades with a touch of yellow, like pale gold.  

Best Eyeshadow for Blue Eyes

The Makeup Revolution Color Book 03 is the best eyeshadow palette for blue eyes. It has every shade your blue eyes could need, including warm browns and orange tones.  

With the option of 24 shimmer shades and 24 matching mattes, this palette can really take your makeup look from day to night. You can experiment with more subtle shades or be a little more daring – what more could you want! 

If you’re after something a little more compact and glamorous, then the Golden Hour Eye Quad is for you. Dazzling coppers and burnt oranges make the perfect pairing for blue eyes. This palette helps you to create the ultimate glam look so your eyes can sparkle for hours!  

How to Make Green Eyes Pop  

If you have green eyes, you’re extra special as it’s the rarest eye color in the world. Only 2% of the population have green eyes, so you don’t need to do as much to make them stand out!  

Green’s complementary color is red, so any color with a red undertone can help green eyes pop.  

Corals, rose golds and maroons all pair well with green eyes. Shades with a more purple undertone, like lilac or plum, can also help to highlight the yellow flecks in green eyes to make them sparkle. They may seem daunting, but we promise that purple eyeshadows will intensify the green of your eyes.  

Best Eyeshadow for Green Eyes 

The Revolution Crystal Aura Forever Flawless Shadow Palette offers the perfect selection of eyeshadows for green eyes. It has a captivating combination of purples, burgundy hues and violet tones mixed with earthy browns. This eyeshadow palette is guaranteed to make heads turn by making your eyes shine. Dare to be bold! 

If you want a more subtle palette to pair with your green eyes, then you’ll fall in love with the Forever Flawless Allure Pallette. It has an array of neutrals, warm rust hues and deep berries that are perfect for creating a rich smoky eye. The shades are soft enough to be worn every day with just the right amount of red and purple undertones to intensify your gorgeous eyes.  

How to Make Brown Eyes Pop   

Brown-eyed babes can play with a whole range of shades across the color wheel.  

Contrasting shades, like teal, turquoise and green, will instantly illuminate your brown eyes. If green feels a bit bold, opt for grey and silver shades to compliment and contrast the warmth of your eyes.  

Alternatively, use a golden shimmer shade to help emphasize the amber tones in your eyes. 

Best Eyeshadow for Brown Eyes

If you want your eyes to leave a lasting impression, say hello to the Forever Flawless Everlasting Palette. The bold shades of green will make your brown eyes seriously pop, while the soft neutral shades can be worn daily and pair beautifully with intense green shades.  

For your nighttime glam, meet the Revolution Pro Regeneration Palette Nude Au Naturel. This combination of smoky nudes perfectly complements brown eyes, making them appear bigger and brighter. It’s the ideal addition to your makeup bag! 

How to Make Hazel Eyes Pop

Hazel eyes are an enchanting mix of brown, amber and green hues – which means you can have fun with your eyeshadow! Much like a mood ring, you can choose which tones you want to enhance in your eye. 

Hazel eyes can experiment with browns, pinks, coppers, purples and greens. If your hazel eyes lean more green, then go with pink and purple hues to make them truly pop. If your hazel eyes appear warmer, enhance them with golden browns and green shades. 

Best Eyeshadow for Hazel Eyes

The Tasty Pumpkin Spice Latte Palette has every shade you could need to make hazel eyes glow. This eyeshadow palette has a stunning mix of purple and pink shimmer shades to make the green in hazel eyes pop. It also has a great range of golden and green sparkling shadows to bring out the warmer hues in your eyes.
