Author: Michelle Teeken   Date Posted:23 September 2022 

Eyes are one of our most favorite features to dress-up using makeup. All eye shapes and sizes are beautiful and there are various ways to accentuate them! Whether you prefer a natural or a glamourous look, we have shared four different methods anyone can use to make their eyes pop! 



An amazing way to frame your eyes is with EYELINER! Eyeliner can help bring structure and balance to the eyes. For a universally flattering look, line your eyes by following their natural shape. This will determine the best placement for enhancing their structure and size. Experiment and play with different eyeliner lengths and thicknesses to discover which style suits you best.

In case you missed our previous blog, THE BEST FACE PALLETS FOR DIFFERENT SKIN TONES, you may have skipped the section where we touch on EYESHADOW shades for specific eye colours. So let’s do a recap

Universally, various neutrals and browns will suit all eye colours and complexions. But there are other hues on the colour wheel which can make your eyes pop! Here are some simple steps using the colour wheel to find out what they are. 

Colour wheel

Step 1: Select a region on the wheel that best represents your eye colour.

Step 2: Bring your attention to the regions opposite your eye colour on the wheel.

Step 3: Experiment with the tones in this opposite region. Try lighter or darker variations, depending on your complexion and hair colour.

·      For blue eyes, try orangey earth-tones, rich browns, and shimmery greys. If you want to make your blue eyes pop and are not afraid of drama, try a dark smokey eye.

·      Brown eyes suit almost any eyeshadow colour. Stay with neutrals for a natural look or enhance the warmth of your eyes with golds and bronzes. If you are feeling bold, try using contrasting colours such as blues, purples, and greens.

·      For green and hazel eyes, try neutral pinks, taupes, earth-tones with warm undertones and golds. For a contrasting effect, try shades of purple instead.

·      For grey eyes, try neutral browns, silver, gunmetal, or icy blue shades.
