As they say, the eyes are the window to the soul. Eyes become the focus point when we converse and can often help us understand a person’s emotions. To give this area of the face definition and depth, cosmetics with darker hues such as a black kohl eyeliner are used. Coloured versions of eye cosmetics give a sense of edginess, contrast, and brightness.
The colour wheel plays an important role when considering eyeshadows. Colours that are on opposite sides of the wheel complement each other. For example, for green eyes, eye makeup that have a warmer tone such as reds or purples would complement this eye colour best as these colours are on the opposite side of green on the colour wheel.
