Then choose the right lipstick shade for you: Here are some expert opinions on different eye colors to guide you.
- Brown: This is one of the more common eye colors. The major advantage of this color is it goes with just about any shade of lipstick! But, tones such as deep pink, soft nude, red-orange, cinnamon are known to work well. Also, if you have brown eyes you should avoid muddy shades.
- Blue: Blue eyes glow and shine beautifully. Shades like lilac, coral, or light dusty pink are known to compliment blue eyes. As a general rule of thumb shades of pink enhance blue eyes.
- Green: About 2% of the world’s population has green eyes, so if you’re one of them make sure you highlight them. Shades like classic red, copper, cinnamon, taupe or a bright orange are known to complement green eyes.
- Hazel: Hazel eyes look best when you use nude shades of lipstick. In addition, hazel eyes are known to pop out when paired with peachy shades.
