Mineral Eyeshadow + Eyeliner Colors

What shades are best for my eye color? To make eyes pop, choose shades that either complement or contrast your eye color. For example, if you have brown eyes, you should choose eggplant, greenish gold or vibrant blue. Orglamix will help you determine your best eye makeup look and define your eyes with rich color eyeshadow and eyeliner to make your eye color pop.  Many of us make the mistake of trying to match our eyeshadow to the color of our eyes. The most important thing to know about choosing eye colors is that there are no rules. Seriously. Believe it or not, regardless of your skin tone, we think you can wear just about any color and look fabulous. Being playful is a big part of the fun of mineral makeup. 

Still, there are some tried and true colors that do really bring out the beauty of certain eye colors. Remember the color wheel? Complementary colors (the ones across from each other on the color wheel) look gorgeous together, while similar colors are safe, but can be a bit dull. So if you'd like to know: what eyeshadow colors best bring out my eye color, here's what to look for for the most flattering makeup colors for eyes:
