Finding the perfect eyeshadow is an art in and of itself. You need one that’s the right texture, richly pigmented, and, most importantly, complements your eye color. To find the best eyeshadow for your eye color, see our gorgeous recommendations below. One of these shadows is sure to catch your eye!
EYESHADOW FOR BROWN EYES
For a chic everyday effect, opt for a neutral, monochromatic eye look. Mono Pop Eyeshadow Palette in Mood Brown comes with nine different shades of brown and tan in a mix of matte and shimmer finishes, so you can build a modern, multidimensional eye. This palette will not only coordinate with your eye color, but it will also complement every item in your wardrobe.
Looking for something bolder? Try a turquoise eye palette, which will bring out amber flecks in brown eyes. Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow Quad in On the Vine features richly pigmented turquoise eyeshadow shades that are numbered for easy application. Not to mention, your eyes will pop!
For a glamorous night-out look, go with a glittery gold or bronze eyeshadow. We recommend Avon Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Fools Gold or Bronze Age. These shimmery shadows glide on for an insta-worthy look that wows. Fools Gold will bring out the lighter tones in your eyes for a glowing effect, while Bronze Age will accent your eye color with a sultry vibe. Use one swipe for a subtle sparkle, or try multiple-layers for full-on glam.
EYESHADOW FOR BLUE EYES
Bring out those baby blues with some contrasting eye makeup. Blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel, so a palette with orange undertones, like Mono Pop Eyeshadow Palette in Mood Coral is the perfect pairing. Layer the palette’s brown and coral shades as you please and your eyes will stand out in a crowd.
Play up your blues even further with a matching palette like Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow Quad in Tranquility. This matte eyeshadow palette features four richly pigmented shades that you can layer for a cascading light-to-dark blue look. Your eyes will appear bluer than ever.
For a glam effect, opt for Avon Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Peach Sapphire or Rose Gold. The pink and peach undertones once again provide the perfect contrast to your cool baby blues. This sparkling liquid eyeshadow also has major staying power, so your glam-star eyes will last all night long.
EYESHADOW FOR GREEN EYES
If you have green or hazel (greenish-brown) eyes, purple eyeshadow is your best friend. Go with Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in either Purple Pop- a vibrant purple palette- or Purple Haze- a muted purple palette. Purple hues bring out the yellow undertones in green and hazel eyes, making them appear brighter. Purple and green are also on opposite sides of the color wheel, so this combo makes a cool contrasting statement.
For show-stopping eyes, swipe on Avon Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in a shimmery purple hue like Crystal Lilac or Iron Violet. This glittery formula glides on for a gorgeous, camera-ready look that’s sure to earn you compliments. Eyeing a different look? View our full eyeshadow collection.
