The ideal eye makeup color for you depends on the color of your eyes. The hues you select should also be in keeping with your personal style and your outfit's level of formality.
If you have brown eyes, it is best to avoid yellowish-brown eye shadow colors. The most flattering eye makeup shades for brown eyes are blue, green, gray, burgundy and golden brown. Warm shades of brown, as well as variations of taupe, gray and peach are especially appealing if you have blue eyes. Gold, pink and soft shades of violet look great on hazel or green eyes. It is also important to remember that eye shadow should coordinate with the color of your eyes rather than the colors in your outfit.
