1Lancôme Color Design Shadow & Liner Palette in Taupe Craze, $48.
Complementary eye makeup colors—the colors that are opposite your eye color on the color wheel—will make your blue or gray eye color look most vivid. When considering your best colors related to your skintone, stick with shadows and liners that also have cool undertones (like your skin). These colors won’t have any yellow-ish or orange-y tones, or “warmth” in them, but will lean more towards an “icy” look or have hints of gray in them.
Five shades are expertly chosen to seamlessly blend together, and create looks ranging from natural to night-ready.
