If you’ve always wanted to make your eye color pop, there’s an easy way to do it.
According to color theorists, 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 like MAC Cosmetic Eye Shadow in Swiss Chocolate (muted reddish brown) or Embark (intense brown with red undertone).
I tested the color theory for hazel eyes using Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Black Jade as the contrasting eye liner and a neutral shade from one of Smashbox’s Full Exposure Palette as the eye shadow. Let’s just say that the color theory works!
