Matching your eye makeup with your eye color can really complete your look. With such an abundance of eyeshadows and eyeliners to choose from, it can be hard to know which would suit you best.

To add another dimension of choice into the mix, the rising popularity of colored contact lenses has meant that any color combination is now in scope. It’s never been easier to switch up your eye color and experiment with makeup looks to complement your look. Whether you’re looking for a subtle switch up in eye color or a complete transformation, the color contacts market has boomed in the last few years with a wealth of choice in colors, brands, and replacement cycles on the market. Always be sure you’re buying from a reputable seller before purchasing and check brands that are FDA approved such as Solotica. Buying fake lenses can cause serious damage and no makeup look is worth that! 

So how do you match your eye makeup with your eye color?

What eyeshadow compliments light and dark brown eyes?

Light and dark brown eyes have a huge platform of choice when it comes to complementary eye makeup. Smoky eyes are an absolute favorite with the dark outside tones blending with the natural iris color. This look on natural blue eyes can be a bit harsh but if you’re looking for the drama then that will certainly bring it! If you don’t have brown eyes and want to try this look then brown colored contacts are a great way to experiment and test out this look. As a tip – a speck of ivory or light shadow in the corner of the eyes will make them sparkle and appear bigger, a perfect finish for a smoky look!

What eyeshadow compliments green and hazel eyes?

Green and hazel are some of the rarest eye colors making them also some of the most desirable. Gold eyeshadow is an absolute must if you’re lucky enough to have been blessed with one of these beautiful tones. A gold upper lid is an excellent way of highlighting the green or hazel iris and adding unrivalled sparkle into these dreamy eye colors. If you’re not one of the world’s 2% lucky enough to have green eyes then fret not, experiment with lenses such as Solotica Hidrocor Mel, Jade or Avela and bring the warmth and glow to your eyes!

What eyeshadow compliments green and blue eyes?

Green and blue eyes can be dressed up in numerous ways with eye makeup. We love a warm combination of orange, copper and brown tones that contrast against the bright tones of blue or green eyes to really make the eye color pop. Alternatively, why not test bold colors such as pinks or purples to add excitement and an element of fun to your look. Blue eyes can be a great way to experiment with your look and with the development of technology and color opacity in colored lenses, you can play around with different tones of eye color to match your eye makeup.

If you have naturally dark eyes, then brands such as Solotica offer incredible color coverage to transform even dark brown eyes into beautiful bright blue and green tones.

So, what are you waiting for? Get experimenting with different eye colors and eye make-up looks. With so much choice on the market, it can be hard to work out where to start but always extremely fun and rewarding when you find a combination that works for you. Whether you have a special event coming up, or just looking for a bit of experimentation, it’s never been easier than with colored contact lenses paired with different eye makeup color palettes.
