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 green to gray eyes: Stern, whose clients include green-eyed Mandy Moore, advises bringing out eyes with emerald or metallic olive liner. (Try Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Jade, $26.50.)


For dark eyes: MAC West Coast Director of Makeup Artistry Gregory Arlt advises accenting eyes with violet. (Try Nars Eyeliner Pencil in Manon, $19.)


Pro secret: "The darker the complexion, the more you start to really see the jewel tone," Arlt says. To get rich, true color that won't transfer to lids, opt for waterproof pencils with medium softness.
