Earrings to Make Your Eyes Pop

Feb 16, 2015
Using Jewelry to Accentuate Your Natural Beauty

Just like you, we look to celebrities for style inspiration and for new twists on old favorites. Whenever you’re choosing a look for a big event (or even for your everyday style) it’s important to make sure that your outfit doesn’t detract from your face! This is especially important with statement earrings, which can easily overwhelm the eye if they’re not chosen correctly. These celebs (and their stylists) understand the delicate balance between bold and too bold, and use earrings that make their eyes pop!

Enchanting Emerald for Green Eyes

Emerald earring sales skyrocketed after Angelina Jolie wore a pair of stunning 115 carat drops to the 2009 Oscars. The association is so cemented in the minds of consumers that when one searches “emerald earrings” on Google, her name and photo immediately pop up. Angie’s stylist clearly knew what they were doing- the emerald green combined with a natural style of makeup made her eyes pop. In addition she wore almost no other jewelry to the event and her dress was a simple black number- nothing tried to compete with the earrings. At the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, Emma Stone took a similar approach. She also wore black (let the emeralds shine!) but paired it with fiery red lipstick.

So, Green Eyed Goddesses, throw on your best little black dress, keep your makeup natural, and add some emerald statement earrings to make your eyes pop!

Stunning Sapphire for Brown Eyes

Perhaps the most popular gemstone besides diamond, sapphires are many women’s choice for both everyday looks and special nights out. We’ve all been taught that brown makes blue pop, and vice versa, so it’s no surprise that many brown-eyed celebs turn to blue sapphire statement earrings at big events. Tina Fey wore gorgeous sapphire chandelier earrings at the 2012 Oscars, and Anne Hathaway opted for refined elegance in diamond and sapphire earrings at the 2009 Golden Globes.

So, Brown Eyed Bombshells, throw on your best navy number, keep your makeup natural, and add some sapphire stunners to really make your eyes pop!

Terrific Turquoise for Blue Eyes

Turquoise has always been a color that just jumps off the page- whether you pair it with basic black (like Reese did at the 2012 White House Correspondent’s Dinner) or sunny yellow (like Blake did at the 2012 Savages premier in New York), it’s a bold and beautiful statement piece. Women with blue eyes should utilize the power of this hue- it will bring out the lighter shades in your eyes and really make them stand out. It doesn’t matter if you have a pair of genuine turquoise earrings, or just a pair with turquoise coloring (like Reese’s emerald and opal drops), the finished product will look phenomenal.

So, Blue Eyed Beauties, keep your makeup natural and add a touch of turquoise to your ensemble for a look that’s sure to blow them away.
