Your eye intensifying colours
The harmonious eye intensifying colour
This is the colour that is most dominant in your eyes, this really brings your eyes forward! It’s best if you use these colours around your face, like a scarf, a top or jewellery in these colours. If you have a lighter eye colour, like blue, green or light brown, you are in luck! It is quite easy to see and copy that colour, using a colour picker or paint chips.
If you have dark brown eyes you have to look a little more abstract at them. Do your eyes look more deep and cool? Take a look at purples and royal blues. Do your eyes feel warmer and softer? Plums and muted, dark pinks would be a good match. You can also have more gold tones in your eyes and using a deep yellow could be the most harmonious. Trying out different colours with paint chips or Encycolorpedia are great tools to see what colour brings out your eyes most.
For people who have multicoloured eyes, like hazel and speckled eyes, take the colour that is most dominant or that has the most surface area.
The contrasting eye intensifying colour
If you found your harmonizing colour, it’s quite easy to reverse it! The contrasting eye intensifying colour is really great for eyeshadow, they directly contrast your eye colour, which makes them truly pop! You can also use these colours in clothing as a statement colour. It is still harmonious with your inherent colouring but with a little more zest than your nudes or harmonizing colours.
Encycolorpedia is also a very good tool for figuring out your contrasting eye intensifying colour, as they have a reverse option. It could be the case that this colour isn’t an exact reversal. Maybe you have blue-grey eyes and the exact opposite is a dark brown, but for you a warm beige or mustard yellow works much better!
For people who have multicoloured eyes, you already have your contrasting colour within your eyes. This is the colour that is secondary to your dominant eye colour.
