Should You Apply Eye Makeup to Match Your Clothes?

Should you apply eye makeup that matches the clothes you're wearing that day?

Many women make the wrong assumptions about the colors they choose to wear.

For example, wearing a blue dress or shirt doesn’t mean you should necessarily wear blue shadow’s or liners. Some blue colors just might not suit you or your skin tone or complexion!

Everyone has a different eye color and skin tone. As you well know, not everyone has the same eye shade’s of the same colors. For example, blue eye colors can range from ice blue to deep dark blue. Someone with ice blue eyes would not necessarily use the same colors as someone with dark blue eyes.

Discerning diva's know that choosing the right eye colors can make or break your look! There are certain colors that look great on everyone so choose those colors for days you are 'iffy' about which colors you should use.

If you have fair skin and blue or green eyes, you should apply eye makeup in shades that enhances both. You may also need to take into account your hair color. Someone with olive skin, blonde hair, and hazel eyes should choose colors that blend well with all of them!

You can experiment by using free samples, getting a free makeover at your favorite retail store, or simply buying eye makeup from e.l.f. , where the makeup is always low cost. You can find gorgeous colors that work for a few different looks.

Choosing the right colors for you may seem like a big mystery. Use these general suggestions to get you started choosing the right colors!

Apply Eye Makeup to Match Eye Color

Blue Eyes - You may have light blue eyes, dark blue eyes, or any shade in between. Experiment with various shades of taupe, blue, violet, purple, pink, gray, and black. Choose more subtle shades for day wear and experiment with the trendy, darker alternatives for night wear.

Hazel and Green Eyes - Hazel eyes often reflect the colors around them. Hazel eyes are the exception to the clothes rule. It may be important to change your eye makeup colors for different outfits, unless those colors don’t look good with your skin tone! Hazel eyes most often appear green. Colors that work well with hazel and green eyes include brown, khaki, deep green, and plum. Experiment with different shades within these color families to create looks for different occasions and outfits.

Funky Favorites: gold, lime-green, really light green, bright purple (super modern)

Brown Eyes - Brown eyes look great in shades of pink, purple, plum, brown, orange, salmon, peach, and deep blues. The colors that look best will depend on the undertones of your skin. For example, if you have brown eyes and olive skin, you will look best in shades of pink, peach, or brown. If you have brown eyes, fair skin, and dark hair, you may look best in various shades of pink and plum.

Funky Favorites: tangerine, royal blue, hot pink, lime-green (The contrast adds punch to brown.)

Remember that finding eye shadow colors that are an exact match to eye color can be a bit tricky. There are really no magical combination's because we're all different! You and I have different tastes and different opinions about what we think looks good! Use the suggestions as general guidelines as there are always exceptions to the general rules.

When you experiment around a little, you will learn better how to apply eye makeup colors that are best suited for your personal experience. To better determine makeup colors, you should also know your color season.
