How to Choose the Best Eyeliner for Your Eye Color -

There is no denying what eyeliner can do for your eyes. Not only does it make your lashes look full and lavish; but eyeliner defines your eyes and enhances their shape!

A lot of us opt for black or brown eyeliner out of habit, but did you know the best eyeliner shade for you is actually based on your eye colour?

The right eyeliner shade will help intensify your natural eye colour and help your eyes pop even more; so we’ve rounded up the best eyeliners for you based on your eye colour!

The Best Eyeliner for Blues Eyes

Gold and copper hues will make your blue eyes look even bluer than they already are! You could also choose terracotta or champagne hues, which are both in the same colour family.

Looking for something a bit bolder? Try a navy liner! It will give you a more dramatic look that still makes your eyes stand out. You could also apply a gold shadow to your inner corners to really make your eyes pop even more!

The Best Eyeliner for Green Eyes

Green sits opposite red on the colour wheel, so try to choose shades with slightly red undertones to make your eyes pop!

Think garnet, amethyst, or mahogany to really help your eyes stand out.

Looking for something bolder? Try lining your lash line in black first and then layering an eyeliner with a red undertone on top.

This will really bring out the brightness of your eyes!

The Best Eyeliner for Brown Eyes

Try amber or midnight blue tones to really emphasize the light flecks in your brown eyes! You could also opt for purple or a deep grey. A brown eyeliner could be used as well.

Looking for something bolder? Try a cobalt blue!
