Eyes are very important when it comes to makeup and it’s easy to go wrong in the ocean of eyeshadow and eyeliner colours when you have to decide what is the perfect match for you. In this post I’ll show you which shades are matching best with your eye colour. Are you ready?
But first, the most important rule of coloured eyeliners; the purpose of these products is to make your eyes pop, not to overshadow them. With a wisely picked eyeliner shade, your eyes can look brighter and their colour more lively, however a bad one can make them blend. Keep one thing in mind: never use an eyeliner that has the same exact colour as your eyes. Big NO for matchy-matchy in this case!
My new favourites are the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils so I selected some beautiful shades for each group. Take it as a direction, and go find your own way!
Best for blue eyes:
Cool, blue eyes working well with nice, warm tones; try chocolate browns and bronzy colours. If you looking for more drama, go for a very deep, dark blue shade.

Best for green eyes:
Green eyes are tricky because most of the time it’s not only green, but a mixture of other colours as well. Sometimes a bit brownish, sometimes bluish, mine for example a mix of green, brown and yellow….crazy isn’t it? So for green eyes with brownish/yellowish hues I suggest purple shades, really “green” green eyes can go well with warmer/goldish brown tones, and bluish-green eyes can be easily highlighted with graphite and grey colours.

Best for brown eyes:
The ones with brown eyes are very lucky, because brown suits the best with stronger, brighter colours. (However you have to keep your skin tone, and other features in mind when picking the right one). Generally speaking: brown eyes can fit well with olive greens, dark blues and deeper mallow shades too.
