Eye shadow has been around for thousands of years. The Ancient Egyptians were really onto something when they realized that a face can look more feminine when the area around the eye is darkened. And now you’ve learned some science and history while reading an article about makeup!

As makeup trends have evolved over the millennia (the thousands of years mentioned above), trends have come and gone, and some patterns have developed. Read on to find out how your eyes can look their best – and most feminine – with the right pop of color on your eyelids.

Blue

Blue is a naturally cool color, so warmer shadows can really set off blue eyes.

  • Best Colors: gray-brown, slate, silvery blue, gold, bronze, copper, champagne, yellow-beige, peach.

Psst!: When you have light eyes, too much color can be distracting, so less is more!

Brown

If you have brown eyes, you’re in luck. Since brown is a neutral color, it won’t compete or contrast with most shades.

  • Best Colors: Royal colors like purple and blue, metallic bronze, smoky gray-brown, navy, green.

Green

The best complement to green eyes is purple. But if you’re not a fan of any of the purple hues (violet, royal purple or deep plum), try a touch of rusty brown or dark brick, which is basically brown with red undertones.

  • Best Colors: Sepia, rust, purple, pink, violet, plum.

Hazel

Hazel eyes are made up of a combination of colors. Your eye shadow color can bring out the flecks you want to emphasize. Purple picks up green. Browns and grays pick up gold.
