Opposites Attract for Brighter Eye Color

According to StyleList, all you have to do is wear eye makeup in a complementary shade for your eye color. For color theory novices, complementary colors are pairs of colors that are direct opposites.
For example, blue-eyed celebs like Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston can bring out the aqua color in their eyes with a reddish brown tone found in an eye palette like Collection Essentielle de Chanel in Paris-New York.
