Well, you should and here’s why! An eye shadow shade that compliments your eye colour can actually add dimension to your eyes, it can highlight your eye colour and make your makeup stand out too.

The only thing you have to do is pick eye shadow shades that complement your eye colour the best...

But how do you decide what colour to go for? Well, it’s simple. Look at the colour wheel. The shade that is directly opposite to the colour of your eyes is the best bet for you. Basically, the colours that work in contrast with your eye colour make them appear brighter and more prominent. Here, we have rounded up the best eye shadow shades for each eye colour. Find out yours...

Blue eyes
 

Blue eyes

Blue eyes are considered cool toned eyes so the contrast eye shadow colours that work best with these eyes are warm and earthy shades like gold, bronze, brown, peach and orange. This brings out the beautiful baby blue shade of your eyes. We suggest you use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – French Rose palette. 

Brown or black eyes

Dark brown and black coloured eyes can pull of any colour in terms of makeup but look stunning when dressed in cool shades like blue and sea green. Other colours you can paint your big brown eyes with are plum and beige nude. Get hold of the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Smokey Glam.

Green or grey eyes

That gorgeous green is the rarest eye colour in the world with only two percent of population being blessed with it. A vibrant purple, deep red, gold and peach are some shades that can make your eye colour pop. You can try the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – Royal Persia.

Hazel or amber eyes

The light brown eye shade sits right in the middle of the colour wheel which means you can wear colours from both families. The sun-kissed colour in your eyes can be accentuated by colouring your eyes in pretty pinks, greens or oranges or deep tones like browns and reds. The Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow – Silk Route palette we believe is the perfect match for you.
