Make your eyes pop and your hair color shine with these makeup matches.
Taking a fabulous feature such as your eyes and highlighting them with eye shadow is what makeup products were designed to do. Taking that great result further by also using your makeup to bring out the best in your hair color at the same time is even better!
To find out how to boost your hair color with your eye shadow, take a look at these tips and ideas...
Green is a fabulous shade to match to red hair and will highlight your eyes and make your hair color pop. Choose shades of green in emerald, jade and mint. A subtle color over your entire lid works great for a day look (pair with a lashing of mascara) and work in a smokey green eye for night.
If you’re shade of brunette hair borders on deeply dark then create a striking match with blue or green eye shadows. A smokey aqua eye for night is a great choice. If your brunette shade is lighter then match your hair color with brown shades that are named like they come with a caffeine hit (think mocha, coffee and espresso).
Blonde hair creates a nice clean canvas to work with so most shades of eye shadow will look great. To really achieve an eye popping look, however, try shadows in lavender or pink. A splash of violet across your eye lid teamed with some icy platinum blonde locks is the perfect party look. Or a subtle hint of rose pink across your peepers will allow your golden locks to glow during the day.
