Full Answer

Use the right color schemes for your eye color. Those with blue eyes should use gold or copper shadows and brown liner and mascara, while people with brown eyes should use purple eye shadow and black mascara, and black or royal blue eyeliner. Hazel eyes look best in yellow or tangerine shadow and brown liner and mascara, while green eyes sparkle under orange eye shadow, brown liner and mascara.

Apply the lightest shade of color all over your lids and up to your brow. Then, place the darkest color in the crease of your eye, and the brightest, most saturated color on your lid. Then, finish with two coats of mascara, bright highlighter inside of your lower lash line and eyeliner around your eye, up to the inner corner.
