3. Smoky haze: Here is a set of colors that can never go wrong for black eyes, these are the smoky shades of charcoal, dark gray and silver. Go for seductive smokey eye makeup with these colors or just swipe it along the crease of your eyes or maybe smudge it along your lash line instead of the whole lid, to give definition to your eyes. But remember to keep your lips understated if going for smoky colors for your eyes to avoid looking over the top and let your eyes take center stage.Eyeshadow Tips 03

4. Cobalt blue: Are you one of the quirkier ones? Then cobalt blue is the color for you. As a general rule, go for deep eyeshadow colors to highlight your dark eyes. And what better than an electric shade like cobalt blue to make black eyes pop. The vibrant, cool undertone adds instant drama to your eyes. If you’re not one of the adventurous ones, but still want to sport this dazzling shade on your eyes, then use it as an eyeliner along your lash line.Eyeshadow Tips 04

5. Copper: Go for a layer of shimmery copper eyeshadow in combination with earthy colors like beiges and browns. Apply it on the inner half of your lid. It not only warms up the neutral palette, but also highlights your dark eye color. And the shimmer formula takes it a notch further by adding texture to it.Eyeshadow Tips 05
