Choosing the perfect eyeshadow for your eye colour

To really enhance your eyes making them more alluring, bigger, brighter and the whites appear whiter, then choose eyeshadow colours that fall opposite to your eye colour on the colour wheel, as opposed to colours that match your clothes or are the same colour as your eyes.

Complementary colours:

The opposite of green is lilac/burgundy/pinks, the opposite of blue is orange/golds/browns and the opposite of brown is aqua/blues/greens. Using complementary colours provides the most contrast between your iris colour and your shadow colour, therefore it’s this distinction that enhances your eyes.

Aside from complementary colours, every skin tone and every eye colour should have a brown/taupe/neutral shade palette available too. Of course brown eyes can use browns too, just stay away from muddy browns. Dr. Hauschka 4 Colour Eyeshadow Palette containing matte colours is perfect for eyes and brows.

Application Tip

Always apply from outer to inner, not the other way around for a professional look to your eye shadow application. We do have a tendency to apply from inner to outer and this means you end up with colour dragging your eye downwards.

Always apply from outer to inner for outer eye colour and crease colour.
