1Topshop Make Up Eyes in Potion, $14.
Complementary eye makeup colors—the colors that are opposite your eye color on the color wheel—will make your hazel 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.
Color doesn’t get more intense than this – best for lining and smudging the lash line, this metallic finish eye shadow is a striking burnt burgundy plum.
