The No-Fail Guide To Metallic Lids For Every Eye Color

Our relationship with metallic eyeshadow is complicated. While we may love the foiled look, we're so not in love with everyone asking us if we're making the club go up on a Tuesday. At work. But, there's a very simple trick to making a metallic finish wearable for any and every occasion — it's all about your color choice.

Rather than picking a shadow that's gold, black, or silver — which often darken the eyes — choose one that complements and brightens them. To show you exactly what we're talking about, we teamed up with the 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® Brand to create metallic eye looks that are tailored for your eyes. Above, makeup artist Sophie Haig shares what you need to know about color-wheel theory to pick the most eye-catching metallic shades, whether your irises are blue, hazel, green, or brown.

Get ready to fall in love with that shiny stuff all over again.
