How to Rock Jewel-Toned Eyeliner

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."
