Choosing the perfect eyeshadow

To really enhance your eyes, to make them look more alluring, bigger, brighter and the whites appear whiter, then choose eyeshadow colours that fall opposite to your iris colour on the colour wheel, as opposed to colours that are the same or similar colour as your eyes or colours that match your clothes.

Complementary colours

Colour wheel

The opposite of blue is orange/golds/browns

The opposite of green is lilac/burgundy/pinks

The opposite of brown is turquoise/blues/greens

Using complementary colours provides the most contrast between your iris colour and your shadow colour, it’s this contrast that enhances your eye colour.

Application Tips

  1. Always apply eyeshadow from outer towards inner, not the other way around, for a professional and uplifting look to your eyeshadow application. When you apply from inner to outer you end up with colour dragging your eye downwards.

  2. When you’re applying your deepest colour to the crease, always keep your eyes open to ensure correct placement of the colour.
