Enhancing Eye Color

Guest Author - Kimberly Williamson

Various eye colors.Short of buying contact lenses in the desired color, there’s not much you can do to change your natural eye color. The fact is eye color is fixed at a very early age. But that shouldn’t suggest that you can’t make your natural eye color “pop.” By choosing the right eye makeup, you can enhance your eyes no matter what eye color you were born with.

The Color Wheel

To make your unique eye color pop, you need a little basic knowledge about color. Like other visual artists, makeup artists are familiar with the color wheel. If you’re not familiar with the color wheel, a simple Internet search will produce several images for you. Some are simple and include a small number of colors, while others can be quite complex and display hundreds of colors.

But no matter how simple or complex, colors on opposite sides of the color wheel are called “complementary colors.” These hues intensify each other when placed close together.

Using Complementary Colors to Enhance Your Eyes

How does it work? Shades of green and purple are found on opposite sides of the color wheel and therefore complement each other. So women with green eyes can make them stand out by choosing shadows and liners in a range of purple hues.

You can intensify blue eyes with shades of bronze, gold, and brown. For brown eyes, try blues and purples.

Eye color is unique, and some irises consist of a combination of colors. This might confuse some who want to choose a complementary color to enhance their eyes. But those with blue-green or hazel eyes with green or blue tones actually have a few more options. They can try shades that complement either eye color.

Love Your Natural Eye Color

Some people long to have a different eye color. Whether they are blue, green, hazel, brown, black, or gray, many just aren’t satisfied with their natural eye color. But your individual beauty is unique, and there’s no need to fret if you weren’t born with the color you prefer. No matter what hue your eyes are, you can make them stand out from the crowd by using the right makeup.
