All eye colors are beautiful, and with the right eyeshadow combination, they can really make a statement –– especially when you have red hair. Below is a guide to help you find out which eyeshadows will look best with your eye color and red hair.
Fact: Red hair and blue eyes is the rarest combination in the world.
Stick to shadows containing a warm undertone like brown, bronze, evergreen and deep orange (yes, deep orange can look great with red hair). These eyeshadow shades will contrast beautifully with cool-colored eyes. If applying a non-neutral color on the lid seems a bit too much, you can always apply a little bit to the lower lash line for a subtle splash of color.

Since purple resides across from green on the color wheel, it’s the best color to really make your green eyes stand out. Depending on how light or dark your eyes are, any purple shade from lavender to plum will look beautiful with green eyes. You can also opt for a purple eyeliner or mascara if the shadow color is too intense for your liking.

There are a lot of shadows that complement brow eyes but we recommend sticking to cooler tones like blue and silver. Bronze, copper, and gold will work to help warm your eyes. Regardless of what you choose, any of these shadows will look great with brown eyes!

If you’ve got hazel eyes (like me!), then both warm and cool shadows will look great on you. Purples and pinks will help bring out the green in your eyes while more neutral colors, like browns and yellows, will help make the brown feel warmer. Finding ways to work both tones in will do wonders in making your hazel eyes pop.

This eye color is super rare but definitely deserves some attention for those of you that have been blessed with it. Silver and blue shadows work best for this eye color. The silver shades work to complement the gray while the blues bring out the cool undertones and offer a slight contrast to make them stand out.
