How to Rock Jewel-Toned Eyeliner

Take this quiz to find your best eye makeup colors and the right way to wear them

Too scared to wear turquoise on your lids? Never fear. Celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern says, "Eyeliner is a great product for breaking 'complexion' rules, particularly if you're dealing with jewel tones." Take the quiz to find out your best colors and get pro tips on enhancing your eyes with them.

Your Results

Your best jewel tones: amethyst, emerald and topaz.

These colors are ideal for your complexion and complement several eye colors, including yours:


For blue eyes: MAC West Coast Director of Makeup Artistry Gregory Arlt recommends enhancing eye color with browns and golds. (Try Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Bronze, $23.)


For greenish/hazel eyes: Stern, whose clients include green-eyed Mandy Moore, advises bringing out eyes with emerald or metallic olive liner. (Try CoverGirl Outlast Smoothwear All-Day Eyeliner in Olive, $6.90.)


For brown eyes: Arlt advises accenting eyes with violet. (Try Nars Eyeliner Pencil in Manon, $19.)


Pro secret: "Less is more," Arlt says. "Smudge a little color around the upper lash line, not all over the lid. You can wear lots of mascara but keep the rest of your makeup natural and dewy with a very nude lip."
