Eyeliner Shades to Complement Your Eye Color

Image of 4 different eyeliners in different colors.

The best eyeliner pencils or products accent natural eye color and can even make eyes more vibrant. The following are some tips and ideas for expertly accenting different eye colors:

Brown Eyes

While brown eyeliner is always a match for brown eyes, deep blue tones can look especially amazing. Want to highlight the lighter accents in brown eyes? Light or reddish-brown eyeliner can bring out new dimensions in brown eyes. Try black eyeliner if you want to add more drama for an evening look. You can also change things up with gray, silver or purple eyeliner tones.

Blue Eyes

Blue eyes can benefit from darker shades to brighten and bring them out even more as well as promote contrast. From dark blue to dark gray eyeliner, blue irises will shine and look more dazzling. Metallic eyeliner tones can add mystery and intrigue to blue eyes, and warmer shades like copper or medium browns can also provide an attractive counterpoint.

Light Brown or Hazel Eyes

Lighter shades of brown eyes look beautiful when lined with green or amber toned eyeliner. Blending these colors with a bit of dark brown can create a more subdued effect, while a charcoal eyeliner color can create a more striking look. Change things up with a plum or muted gold eyeliner pencil.

Green Eyes

Red hues are wildly complementary to green eyes; choosing eyeliner colors with red notes can really make green eyes look striking. Eyeliner in rust and reddish-brown tones can set green eyes ablaze, but take care not to overdo it; too much red can make eyes look irritated or tired.

  • "Hair Explosion is a hidden gem in Fairfield. It is located in a lovely stand alone building in the down town area of Fairfield. The place is sunny and cheerful as are the personalities of its husband and wife team that run the place- Larry and Dee Leonzi. Although I live in Westport which is about 10 miles away, I find myself coming back here again and again. Larry is an excellent haircutter and is always very entertaining. He takes great pains to make sure his clients are satisfied and he never disappoints. I highly recommend Hair Explosion."
