Pick the Best Eyeliner for Your Eye Color

Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2016

Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2016

There are no strict rules when it comes to what colors you can and can’t wear on your eyes, but there are certain tones that accentuate your eye color more than others. Stow away the black eyeliner and frame the “windows to your soul” with our selection of eye-catching hues.

Brown Eyes: Chocolate-hued eyes are widely found in this region; you can make them pop by pairing them with earthy and contrasting tones, like navy blue, emerald green, or aubergine. For a dramatic nighttime look, try metallic shades in copper for a look-at-me effect.

01-how-to-choose-the-best-eyeliner-shade-for-your-eye-color-brownGreen Eyes: Violet hues make green eyes dance, especially if the iris is rimmed with yellow. On the color wheel, red-purple are opposite to yellow-green, so a slick of purple eyeliner is sure to make your emerald peepers pop. For a smoldering effect that is wearable during the day as well as nighttime, apply a soft lining of light-catching bronze tones.

Gold pantones pick up the golden specks in the iris, and deepen the blue color. Use a turquoise liner around your peepers for a bright, oceanic look.
