Couple Up With The Eyeshadow Shades Perfect For Your Eye Color

In an effort to prove that opposites (or complementary colors in this case) do indeed attract, we’re digging out our color wheel and applying some rules to matching eyes with eyeshadow. Your eyes should always be a standout feature and to really make them pop requires the right shade of shadow. Our list includes palettes that easily move from daytime fresh to nighttime glam with a few different color combos in build-able formulas. Ranging from shimmer to matte finishes, these ten palettes have been deemed beauty game changers by user reviews. So, blue, grey, green, hazel, brown, we’ve got you covered. All that’s left to do is cover those lids and master a sultry gaze. Opening image: @dior
