Choosing mineral Eyeliner and Eyeshadow Colors

The most important thing to know about choosing eye colors is that there are no rules. Seriously. Regardless of your skin tone and eye color, we think you can wear just about any shade and look fabulous. Being playful is a big part of the fun of mineral make-up.  

Still, there are some tried and true shades that do really bring out the beauty of certain eye colors. Remember the color wheel? Complementary colors (the ones across from each other on the color wheel) accentuate each other while similar colors are low-key and subtle.

Here's what to look for:

Blue eyes are complemented by orange tones - look for warm browns, camels, apricots, and golds. Try navy and grey for a more subtle look.

Green eyes are complemented by red tones - look for pinky browns, plums, lilacs, and soft rosy colors if you look good in pinks, browns and peach tones if you look better in warm earth tones.

Brown eyes are complemented by everything - blues, plums, greens, and greys look terrific.

Violet eyes (lucky you) are complemented by green - look for smoky greens, soft sage greens, and just about anything else that appeals.
