There are sooooo many gorgeous eye shadows to choose from and I know….it can be hard to narrow down all of the choices!   Is there a certain color that will make blue/brown/green eyes pop?   Which colors go best together?  Can I score a deal if I want 3 colors instead of just one?

As always, I’ve got you covered! 

Keep reading for all the answers to the above questions and more so that you can find the perfect shadows for you or a friend and take advantage of an exclusive Lips by Nic special 🙂

Best Eyeshadows for your Eye Color

So how do we know which colors will look best?  It is simple – we use color theory!  Color theory suggests that when you look at the color wheel (remember that thing you learned in elementary school?!), the colors across from each other are complementary.  That means if we look up our eye color on the color wheel, and then look across, we get an idea of whateyeshadow colors will complement our eye color the best.  Neat, huh?!

Of course, these aren’t the ONLY shades that you can wear – feel free to mix and match with the colors you love.

Let’s take a look at the ShadowSense shades that compliment various eye colors the best because if you are going to wear eyeshadow, you need one that doesn’t smudge, is water resistant, lasts all day, AND is infused with anti-aging ingredients!  {All swatches photographed by the beautiful Siara Martin of Love Your Lips with Siara}

Now that we know which colors to look for, let’s make it easy and browse through some gorgeous Eye Trios.  When you purchase 3 ShadowSense Colors from Lips by Nic, you actually unlock an EXCLUSIVE deal!  More details at the bottom of the page 🙂

These are 3 colors paired together perfectly in each trio – a highlight color, a transition color, and a contour color.

Wait….what the heck does that mean?!

  • Highlight: this is the lightest color of the trio and can be placed under brow bone, on inner corner of eye, or in middle of lid
  • Transition: this shade is meant to help you transition from the lightest to darkest color; you can blend all over lid or in crease, and can also be used under lower lash line
  • Contour: this color is the darkest of the trio and can be used on the lid, on the outer corner of the eye to add dimension, or as eye liner

Feel free to play around with these combos – maybe one day you want to only use 2 of the colors.  Totally fine!  Lots of different options for you here 🙂
