I'm sure it's not a surprise to you when I say that some eye shadow colours bring out the natural colour of your eyes. When it comes to bringing out the most in your eyes, you need to look at a color wheel and chose the colour opposite as the colour of your makeup. I've spent this morning doing a bit of research on which would be best for each eye colour & I thought it'd make for a pretty interesting post.

BLUE:  Because blue eyes are naturally cool-toned, warm shades tend to pull out the amazing colours in the eye. Shades like Urban Decay's Buck and MAC's Woodwinked would look stunning.

GREEN:  I have green eyes & I've found that purples and burgandies look best. Shadows like MAC's Cranberry would really pull out the green and look super flattering!

BROWN:  Brown eyes are pretty easy when it comes to shadows because the colour is neutral. Having said that, I think that metallic shades look stunning on brown eyes. 

GREY:  I've found that metallic shades like silver and gold look amazing on grey eyes. Shades like Makeup Geek's Mesmerized would look gorgeous paired with grey eyes.
