The Makeup That's Most Flattering for Your Eye Color

Different eye colors are flattered by different shades of eye shadow and liner.

There's an element of magic in makeup, from artists who create monsters to wizards that make it look like the person under the brush slept a full ten hours on a bed filled with unicorn fluff (spoiler: they definitely didn't).

Capturing that power is easy if you know what to use. The right shades and tones can make your eye color pop in a way that rakes in the "your eyes are gorgeous" compliments. Watch the above video to get inspired, and see which eye makeup is the most flattering when paired with AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses in Honey, Turquoise, and Sterling Gray.

Important information for AIR OPTIX® COLORS (lotrafilcon B) contact lenses:

For daily wear only for near/far-sightedness. Contact lenses, even if worn for cosmetic reasons, are prescription medical devices that must only be worn under the prescription, direction and supervision of an eye care professional. Serious eye health problems may occur as a result of sharing contact lenses. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. Side effects like discomfort, mild burning or stinging may occur. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye doctor.
