Remember making a color wheel back in the day and learning about complementary colors? Maybe not… but it’s actually one of the best beauty hacks in the books. Apply the same theories when picking your eye makeup to get your baby blues, browns or greens to pop!
It’s super simple:
Step 1. ID the shades that make up your gaze — reds spots, gold flecks, green streaks, blue traces. Keep in mind browns are usually made up of oranges and reds, so you’ll use those hints to guide you.
Electrify your look by throwing some orange into the mix. Consider golds, peaches and coppers like Truly Gold True Velvet Eyeliner. Highlight lash lines for a subtle enhancement or fill in lids with the taupe gold for a dauntless look. This eye pencil is filled with orange gradients that harmonize with most blues on the spectrum.
Get daring with an alluring coral, like Truly Charming Crème Blush, evenly smudged all over lids then highlight the middle with Dawn Reflection Luminizing Powder.
Your look pairs best with reds, so when shopping liners and shadows, think of variations like burgundies and pinks. Truly Daring Crème Blush for green eyes is like champagne to o.j. — you don’t need it, but mimosas def make your morning brighter! Plum-berry undertones create an irresistible twinkle.
Heather Mauve Eyeshadow Trio and Truly Purple True Velvet Eyeliner feature captivating mauves, plums and shimmery shell pink shadows that can be used together or apart. We’re literally green with envy.
If this is you, consider yourself fortunate. Almost any punch of color is flattering because brown irises hold the most pigmentation. Vibrant hues draw attention to your gaze and play up your undertones. Our Ocean Blue Eyeshadow Trio contains iridescent teal, deep navy blue and silver shimmer that will dance with the orangey-specks. If there ever was a dynamic duo, you’re looking at it.
Feeling cheeky? Try psychedelic cat eyes in purples, blues, even pinks. Any of our Crème Blushes or colored True Velvet Eyeliners will do the trick.
