Eyes That Pop: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing Eyeliners for Your Eye Color

Colorful eyeliners are currently stealing the spotlight in the beauty world, and it seems this trend is here to stay. Experimenting with different shades of eyeliners not only allows you to create imaginative looks but also brings out the beauty of your eyes, enhancing their natural color and shape. However, navigating through the myriad of color options can be daunting.


From browns to blues, greens to grays, finding the perfect eyeliner shade to complement your eye color is the key to making your eyes pop like never before. So, let's dive into the world of eye-enhancing eyeliners and discover the hues that will make your eyes sparkle and shine like never before!

#1 - Brown Eyes

Brown eyes are naturally neutral, so you can play around with colors if you have brown eyes. Rich plum tones, deep purples, and emerald green shades are my top picks for brown-eyed beauties.

Here's a little tip; applying gold-toned pencils to the inner corners of your eyes will accentuate the warmth of your brown eyes.

  • MAC Cosmetics - Eye Kohl - Teddy (Bronze)

  • NYX Professional Makeup - Slide On Eye Pencil - Jewel (Emerald Green)

#2 - Blue Eyes

You might think black eyeliner brings out blue eyes, but sometimes, this look can be too harsh.

In the color wheel, yellow is opposite to blue. But gold browns, bronzes, and coppers bring out blue eyes in a much more flattering way.

  • Stila - Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner - Lionfish (Bronze)

  • L'Oréal Paris - Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner - Bronze

  • Maybelline New York - TattooStudio Sharpenable Gel Pencil Longwear Eyeliner - Sparkling Silver

#3 - Hazel Eyes

With hazel eyes, which contain shades of green, blue, and brown, you have multiple choices.

Purples, pinks, reds, and cherry tones bring out the green tones in hazel eyes, while shades like emerald green bring out the more brown tones.

  • Rimmel London - Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner - Purple

  • Revlon - ColorStay Eyeliner - Amethyst

  • Milani - Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil - Safari Green

#4 - Green Eyes

A must-have shade for green eyes is burgundy. Red always compliments green. Don't be afraid to use reddish tones to bring out your eyes.

To bring out the yellow tones in green eyes, you can also try gold-toned brown pencils.

  • L'Oréal Paris - Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner - Bronze

  • Maybelline New York - Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil - Striking Copper

  • Covergirl - Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner - Deep Burgundy

#5 - Gray Eyes

Less than 3% of the world's population has gray eyes, and they are often mistaken for blue, but they tend to be more grayish-blue, dark gray, or grayish-green.

For these tones, opting for navy or deep red shades can bring out your eyes.

Don't be afraid to play with colors, be bold!

  •  Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Sabbath (Navy)

  •  L'Oréal Paris - Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner - True Teal

  • Maybelline New York - Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil - Sleek Onyx

Don't be afraid to play with colors and unleash your creativity when it comes to choosing eyeliners. Whether you have brown, blue, green, hazel, or gray eyes, there's a perfect shade out there to accentuate your natural beauty and make your eyes the focal point of your makeup look. Experiment with different hues, try out various techniques, and have fun expressing yourself through your eye makeup. With the right eyeliner, you can enhance your eye color, define your eye shape, and create stunning looks that turn heads wherever you go. So, embrace the power of colorful eyeliners and let your eyes do the talking!
