Blue or gray eyes
Our favorite blue and gray-eyed beauties: Cameron Diaz, Zooey Deschanel and the late Elizabeth Taylor
Here’s a reason to love those gorgeous baby blues or cool grays: Not only are they stunning, but they’re becoming increasingly less prevalent in the U.S.!
Today, only one in six Americans are born with blue or gray eyes, versus one in four at the turn of the 20th century.
Want to make them stand out even more? “Pump up blue eyes with a rust-colored eyeshadow,” says MAC Senior Artist John Stapleton. “Then line the inner rims with a rich brown pencil.” The bold complementary colors will definitely make them pop.

No wonder people write songs about you, brown-eyed girl. Your eyes are gorgeously mysterious, and there’s an evolutionary reason for it too: Irises dilate depending on how interested you are in someone, but that’s difficult to detect in brown eyes, making you more difficult to read. How sexy is that?
Try complementary makeup colors to make them stand out even more. “Brown eyes are incredible with hues of blue,” says MAC Senior Artist John Stapleton. “Help pull out some of the rich mahogany tones with a denim-inspired eye—dusty blue shadows with a bit of gray in them.”
Our favorite green-eyed beauties: Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Connelly
Did you hit the color jackpot or what? Green is the rarest eye color in the world. Only one to two percent of people have them, so it’s no wonder yours attract special attention.
Pair your gorgeous greens with complementary makeup colors to make them stand out even more. “Green eyes will pop against a shadow with a red undertone,” says MAC Senior Artist John Stapleton. Try a rich, red-brown shade or a soft, dusty-rose.
