How To Enhance Your Eye Color


“Eyes are the window to the soul.” In my opinion, everything is expressed through the eyes. Truth, sincerity and understanding are all communicated without saying a word. Our non-verbal communication is a selling point for a new account, an impression on newly found friend and makes a statement about our personalities. Are your eyes communicating the right message?

In professional practice, we make eye contact to show interest and engagement. As friends, we communicate care and concern. Clearly the eyes take center stage. So why not make your eyes memorable?

Here are a few tips to enhance your eye color by making the whites brighter and your eye color pop.

Complimentary Colors: Choosing wardrobe colors that compliment your skin tone makes your skin look clearer, eyes brighter and reduces the dark circles underneath your eyes. Do a simple test with a cream-colored shirt and a white shirt. Try them on one at a time in front of a mirror in natural or fluorescent lighting. Note which color makes your eyes look darker or your blemishes seem more apparent. White=cool base Cream=warm base. Warm base is typically a natural redhead or with red undertones. Cool is typically everyone else.

Brighter Whites: Choosing complimentary colors for your skin tone is one way to make the whites of your eyes appear brighter. The other is basic health. Drinks plenty of water daily, don’t smoke and get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Easy!

Choose the correct eye make-up: This also has to do with skin tone. Choosing the wrong color brown can make your eyes look yellow and bring out your bags. Choose colors that compliment your skin tone. Most makeup professionals can give you a quick lesson at the local makeup counter. Ask them why they chose the color that they did. Have them compare two colors side by side so you can see the difference.

Feeling wild? Try colored contacts for the ultimate enhancement. Nothing is more fun than switching up your style and exploring new looks. Whether it is just for fun at the office or a night out with your besties, you can choose a color to match your mood.
