Color matters: Beauty tips to make your eyes pop on the big day

Make your eyes pop with our expert wedding day makeup advice!

Want to make sure he can't take his eyes off of you on your wedding day? These beauty tips to create the perfect smoky eye will keep him entranced as you say your vows, take the floor for your first dance as husband and wife, and ride off into the sunset. You'll be surprised to learn that you don't have to stick to the common black and grey palette to achieve the smoky eye look. Read on to find out which eye shadows, liners and mascara work best to complement the color of your eyes:

Green
Green​-eyed gals should stick to earthy tones such as bronze, brown, taupe and gold to play up their eyes. Use shimmery shades in the center of the lid and at the inner corners of the eyes to brighten up your gaze. Darker colors should be blended into the crease to create definition and give the smoky illusion so many women desire. If you want to play with color, purple works really well with your green eyes, and don't be afraid to try green on green. Olive and sage eye shadows can be used to further emphasize your natural hue. Finish the look with brown or black eye liner and 2-3 coats of black mascara. Keep the rest of your face fresh with a peach-tinted blush and nude lipstick or gloss.

Blue
Dark or light, blue eyes are simply stunning. To further enhance your color, use an eye shadow palette that has a brown, rose, lavender or neutral shades in it to create a soft, natural smoky eye. If you want to take your makeup to the next level, silver and gold metallic shades and grey, blue or purple tones will make your eyes the show stopper. Black eye liner can look harsh against blue eyes, so take your liner down a notch and opt for a charcoal hue instead. A navy-colored mascara sounds like something you'd only wear on Halloween, but the unexpected color choice works for special occasions as well. Pair a matte lipstick and a light pink blush to complement your eye  makeup. 

Hazel
If you have hazel eyes, you are one lucky lady. This particular eye color is the chameleon of all eye colors, as the shade can often change colors depending on the light and how you style your makeup and clothes. To change the color of your eyes to look more green, use earth tone shadows. Want to fake blue eyes? Purple will do the trick. If you simply want to brighten your eyes, line your lower lids with a white eye pencil. The only color to avoid when it comes to your stunning gaze is a color that falls in the blue-grey range. Skip the blush altogether and instead use bronzer to highlight your cheekbones and subtly pick up on the specks of brown in your eyes.

Brown
Brown eyes are anything but boring. The mix of all the primary colors makes brown eyes the most flattering tone to dress up because you have a limitless palette to play with, makeup artist Emily Kate Warren told Allure Magazine. To pick up the gold flecks in your irises and brighten the white part of your eyes, stick to a purple color palette. A plum-colored mascara is an alternative way to incorporate the purple shade into your makeup. Other shadow choices you can use to create a knock-out smoky eye include earth tones such as gold, copper and metallic green shadows. For an eclectic look, try blue shadow and eyeliner to contrast your brown eyes.
