It's All About Balancing Colour

Typically speaking when finding the right colour to enhance your eyes, it is as easy as thinking in the mind frame of ‘opposites attract’. I know it sounds crazy, but trust me. If you look at a colour wheel and find your eye colour, usually the colour directly opposite will be your best bet.

Blue Eyes

The best colours that work for blue eyes are those that are copper, gold, brown and coral. If you stick to this family of colour, you can’t go wrong. You should stay away from anything too dark or dramatic. Softer coral tones won’t be overpowering and will create that perfect balance to make your blue eyes pop.

Gray Eyes

Gray eyes are very close to blue eyes. For gray eyes it is best to stick to orange, purple and red tones. Deep colours and smoky shades are the best for adding depth and allowing gray eyes to stand out.

Green Eyes

For green eyes, pinks and purples help draw attention. Similar to blue eyes, copper and gold tones can also make the green really pop and stand out.

Hazel Eyes

Neutral, warm earth tones are the best when enhancing hazel eyes. Greens and purples also work well for hazel eyes.

Brown Eyes

If you have brown eyes you are lucky. Almost every colour suits brown eyes. Some of the best colours to help emphasise brown eyes include purple, blue, neutral shades, silver, orange and green.
