Previously I posted about eye shadow colors to complement eye colors.  Now I'm going to try to sort out recommendations by Season, Type and Tone.  Technically, eye color has nothing to do with Type and Tone.  I have a personal correlation, that is not part of the actual systems.  I might split it apart.


1/2 Light Spring blue, green, lt. hazel
1/3 Warm Spring: blue, olive green, topaz, lt. hazel
1/4 Clear Spring: turquoise blue, green, topaz



The majority of Summers have blue eyes,
although there have been exceptions.

2/1 Light Summer: blue, green
2/3 Soft Summer: gray blue, hazel
2/4 Cool Summer: blue, grey

Can have neutral skin



Autumns have the most variety within the eye pattern,
thus landing them in the hazel category often, or warm browns.

3/1 Warm Autumn: brown, olive green, dark hazel
3/2 Soft Autumn: blue, grey green, lt. brown, lt. hazel
3/4 Deep Autumn: dark brown, dark green, dark hazel

Soft Autumn can have neutral skin


Winters will have a wagon wheel spoke shape,
and less variety in the color of the pattern.
They will be darker blue or darker brown.

4/1 Clear Winter: bright blue, violet, emerald green
4/2 Cool Winter: blue, violet, charcoal grey
4/3 Deep Winter: black, black brown, dark hazel

Cool and Clear can have neutral skin

Greens, champagnes, bronzes, golds, browns and blues are just some of the shades that play beautifully with brown eyes. You can also try shades of beige, peach, corals, copper, pinks, pale purples (pinky purples) and browns. Brown eyes also look great in grey, plums as well as burnt oranges.

Try a “ browny orange “. Also, taupe, gray, violet, purple, deep blue, silver. To emphasize blue eyes use brown and rose shadows. Warm hues will contrast the coldness of blue eyes, making them really pop.

Perhaps try a pimento brown – this contains a subtle red undertone that is cooled & tamed by the dominating brown.  All women with green eyes look great in brown colors from light beiges to deep chocolate browns. Purples and pinks also complement with green eyes.

 Gold, pink, lavender, plum, khaki and mocha are great ones too. Purple shades contrast your color, making eyes look dramatic. Warmer shades of mocha complement the green hue in hazel eyes, giving a natural effect. Soft pink is another good color.
