One of the best ways to look younger and more vibrant as we get older, is to be sure to wear colours that flatter us. This doesn’t only apply to our clothes and accessories but to our eye make-up as well!

Where choosing the correct eye colour to enhance our eyes may once have been a bit of a gamble, now it will be easy when you follow these fantastic tips:

  • The key is to give your eyes some definition – groomed brows, luxurious lashes, and some colour on the lids. Give more definition to the upper eye line than the lower eye line.
  • Avoid anything with a red undertone as it will make your eyes look sore and tired.
  • There will probably be a shade of purple that will suit you!
  • Avoid anything with lots of shimmer.
  • No harsh lines, go softly and blend well.

Best colours

Look for soft neutral tones!

  • Champagne and soft corals are great for vivid blue eyes.
  • Steely greys and silvers are wonderful for grey/blue eyes.
  • Charcoal liners can be kinder than black.
  • Soft browns/taupes.
  • purple.

Avoid blue eye shadow as a general rule, but dark blue mascara will bring out the blue of your eyes!

  1. I have to agree with the suggestions for Hazel eyes, (which I have) browns, creams and greens…….sometimes my eyes look more green at other times more brown,

  2. It is s hard to buy matte colours. If you buy a palette there are always shiny colours so I don’t buy them. Does anyone know of any brands of eyeshadows suitable for blue eyes that aren’t shiny and don’t cost the national debt?

  3. I disagree with the green eye colour using purple eyeshadow. Most green eyed people are red heads or have a freckley complexion. Purple makes us look like we have been crying, or gives that impression. Best to use greens or neutral colours for a natural look. Nothing with a red undertone ie purple!!!!
