We all know that hair color, skin tone, and makeup techniques play a big role in the overall intensity of our eye color. But today’s post will prove that the extra glimmer in your eye has everything to do with the colors you wear. Whether you have darling baby blues, sparkly greens, bright hazel, deep brown peepers, or gorgeous greys here are the basic color guidelines to follow to get your boldest and brightest eyes:

Reese’s blonde hair and the baby pink top come together and make her eyes the focal point of the image.

A word of advice for my divas with grey eyes: Avoid warm colors like the plague, they make you look washed out. I’m feeling especially empathetic towards you guys because almost no one on the web seems to have tips regarding your eye color. I had to search high and low for it. I was reading all these articles and I paused and thought, “What about grey eyes?”. There are tons of makeup tips out there, but not too many fashion tips for you guys. On behalf of bloggers everywhere, I apologize, being left out of the mix is totally unfair. You guys are awesome.

Well I hope this helped a little. Now you have the tools to get your boldest, brightest eye. It’s time for this girl to split (studying for finals). *cue vomiting*

Stay beautiful my loves ❤
