Or for those who were blessed with chocolaty browns, experiment with violet shades.

Those of you who have gorgeous icy blues experiment with cool hues like silver and pastel pink. Sweep the shadow all the way to your brow bones.
For a more dramatic look try gray tones with heavy charcoal accents. Don’t be afraid of mascara, adding it to the top and bottom lashes will make your blues really pop.

Eye-shadows in lavender tones will forever be your best friend. First apply a taupe base on your lids, the sweep a lavender shade in the outer corners and crease for a subtle, yet blended look.

For a more day-to-day look go for shadows with coral or even orange undertones that are sure to complement the natural jade in your eyes.

Keep your color pallet in the golden-brown family. First use a champagne liner on the insides of your eyes to lighten the eye, follow by sweeping a darker brown shade in the crease of your eye to help create depth.
Or for a knock out look, hit up a smoky eye. Create a mega-drama look by using a gunmetal liner and metallic grey and black shadow.
