There’s nothing like a stroke of colored eyeliner for an unexpected beauty moment. But with a rainbow spectrum of shades to choose from, where to begin? While there are no hard-and-fast rules, your natural eye color can be a fruitful place to start. “Contrasting your eyeliner to enhance your eye color is an easy trick to bring attention to your eyes,” says L.A.-based makeup artist Beau Nelson. Here, three pros discuss their favorite colored eyeliner strategies for playing up eye color.
“Brown eyes are already neutral, so you can really play with color on brown eyes,” says Katie Jane Hughes, who gravitates toward jewel-toned eyeliners–think rich berry tones, deep purples, and emerald greens–and has been loving Glossier’s No. 1 Pencil in deep eggplant Rococo recently. For a more subtle approach, consider makeup artist Tasha Reiko Brown’s go-to eye-brightening strategy: A warm gold eyeliner dabbed on the inner corners. “It catches the warm light of brown eyes [for extra sparkle],” she says.
As Nelson underlines, the opposite of blue on the color wheel is yellow, hence his lean towards flaxen colors. “Golden browns, bronzes, and coppers all set blue eyes off nicely,” he says. When working with aquamarine gazes, Hughes also loves a warm hue, like a rusty orange, to really make the eyes stand out.
With tones of green, gold, and brown, hazel eyes are inherently dimensional–and there are many different approaches one can take. “Purples, pinks, burgundies, and cranberries bring out the green tones in hazel eyes,” says Nelson. For Hughes, a rich teal supplies a cool contrast, while for Brown, taking a tone-on-tone approach with an emerald green “really makes the colors jump.”
As far as Brown is concerned, for green eyes it’s all about burgundy. “Bright burgundy…moody burgundy…brown burgundies… all are color wheel opposites meaning shades of green and red always complement each other,” she explains. “A rich burgundy brings an unexpected pop of color that’s bold, but wearable.” Nelson agrees, noting that golden-toned browns will make green eyes appear more “yellowish green.”
It’s true: Less than 3% of the global population has gray eyes, which can be mistaken for blue, but most often appear dark gray, grayish blue, or grayish green. For this rare shade, Nelson recommends royal blues and blue-toned violet shades to bring out their different aspects. Alternatively, “deep, beautiful reds will bring high contrast and make the eyes pop,” says Hughes.

The Best Dressed Stars This Week Chose Unexpected Shapes
This week, the best dressed stars embraced theatricality on the red carpets. Big, bold silhouettes prevailed at movie premieres and Hollywood parties—whether it was dresses with voluminous ruffles, slouchy denim boots, or even sequined hoods. The memo among A-listers was to expect the unexpected when it came to their fashion choices.
Some of the standouts this week? Certain celebrities opted for vintage ensembles with strong shapes. Take Sydney Sweeney at the HCA TV Awards this weekend, when she revived a Mugler dress from 1981 that had exaggerated peplums. Or Kylie Jenner, who celebrated her 25th birthday this weekend in a vintage Paco Rabanne look. The silvery getup complete with a disco ball-like hood, which was ready to party the night away in.
Impactful colors also had a moment. On the Jimmy Fallon show, Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan opted for a Zimmermann floral dress with tons of ruffles, While out in New York, Lili Reinhart also slipped into Tory Burch’s sporty dress with a dash of yellow color-blocking. Speaking of New York, however, there was one city street style moment that truly stole the show: When Rihanna emerged in Y/Project’s extra-slouchy denim boots, fresh off the runway. A head-turning accessory only the Bad Gal herself could truly pull off.
Which were your favorite celebrity looks this week? Be sure to vote below, and check back on Friday to see which ensemble is the ultimate best dressed of the week.

The Kardashian-Jenners Show Three Ways to Modernize Body-Con Dresses
If you’ve been following the Kardashian-Jenners since their early days on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you’ll know that the stylish siblings have always loved a body-con dress: Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe in particular. The show skyrocketed to fame in the early 2010s, after all—there was no better time for skintight Hervé Léger bandage dresses. Over the years, the five siblings’ personal styles may have evolved, but their penchant for form-fitting frocks has never quite quit (Kim, for instance, has been favoring Balenciaga’s spandex catsuits lately). This weekend on Instagram, Kylie posted a new photo with Kendall and Kim, and their trio of summery outfits showcased a more modern update on their signature body-con dressing.
Posing aboard a yacht for Kylie’s 25th birthday celebrations, the three sisters did figure-hugging dresses in a fresh, new way. Kylie wore a sequined and sheer off-the-shoulder dress, complete with an asymmetrical high slit. It’s a more minimal (and elegant) take on the vacuum-sealed style. Kim opted for a shredded red Rick Owens gown that had one long sleeve, her design favoring the more futuristic vibe she’s been channeling as of late. Kendall, meanwhile, slipped into a two-piece, choosing a glitzy bra top and skirt that’s perfect for a night out.
Fashion in general has been moving back towards body-con silhouettes—see the clingy pieces at Mugler, Jacquemus, and Eckhaus Latta—so the Kardashian-Jenners are clearly onto something with keeping their signature sexy look alive. It would be a sight to see the Kardashian-Jenners slip back into their 2010s club wear—but their 2022 takes on the vibe is pretty close. They’re a little more (okay a lot more) current.

What? Cardi B Reveals She Uses Boiled Onions to Wash Her Hair
Homemade hack! Cardi B is proud of her long locks thanks to an unusual shampooing process.
“My last 2 washes I been boiling onions and using the water to wash my hair.” the “Bodak Yellow” songstress, 29, wrote via Instagram on Friday, August 12, alongside a photo of her long, natural hair. “I used to do this 6 years ago when I started my healthy hair growth journey.”
She added: “I stopped cause I got really lazy. It’s odorless and I notice that it’s been giving a shine to my hair.”
The New York native’s social media followers were quickly amazed that the water from the vegetables could help her hair grow without a strong aroma. “Dominican remediesssss 😂,” one Instagram user replied.
The rap star is not the only one to wash her hair with onions. In fact, Illuminate Labs’ Dr. Andrea Paul told MarthaStewart.com in March that applying onion juice on the scalp is good to treat hair loss due to the amino acids, which help restore hair follicles. She added: “For convenience, it probably makes sense to apply the treatment prior to showers, as it will be quite pungent.”
While Cardi — who shares daughter Kulture, 4, and son Wave, 11 months, with husband Offset — did not further detail her haircare routine, she’s previously been candid about her go-to beauty products.
“Would you shower at my place?” she previously captioned an August 2021 photo of her bathroom via Twitter, showing off tubs of Vaseline, Dove body wash, Degree deodorant, Dr. Teals scrubs and Lubriderm lotion.
The Hustlers actress continued at the time: “I loooveeeee to exfoliate down south with [the St. Ives Apricot scrub] after I shave. I can’t laser or wax til I give birth [with baby No. 2] so I like to exfoliate right after I shave. Body scrubs is good for the leg & body but I feel is too oily for the bikini line.”
Cardi has also frequently made headlines through the years over her changing hairstyles and wigs, but her natural look has remained one of her favorites.
“OK guys, so this is really how my hair is,” Cardi said in a June 2020 Instagram Story video. “My hair gets like this when you blow dry it and then two days later it looks puff puff like this. Even when you braid it.”
The “WAP” performer told her social media fans that she calls her hair “straight” which is different from Kulture and her “little coils” of curls.
“All the good things that you put in your body, you gotta put in your hair,” she added in the clip, noting that she swears by a DIY hair mask using avocado, raw eggs, mayonnaise and more. “You’re not gonna put soda in your hair because soda ain’t good for your body.”
She continued: “This treatment is really good for curl patterns. I don’t really have a curl pattern but my baby does.”
