Eyes on the prize! Did you know that there are certain colors which make your eyes pop? We’ve incorporated this knowledge into our beauty routine, choosing eyeshadow shades that bring out our eyes. The same is true with fashion!

According to numerous experts, here are some color combos that go hand-in-hand: with blue eyes, opt for neutrals, pink, bold blue or green. For green eyes, play around with purple, dark greens, coral or subtle shades of yellow. When it comes to hazel, wear dark neutrals, purple, burgundy or orange. And for all our brown-eyed girls, try green, pink, gold and blue.

Keeping these hues in mind, we wanted to apply this same logic to swimsuit season. Just as important as picking out the right swimwear for your skin tone is finding the best beach cover-up for your eye color. So, without further ado, here are 16 cute cover-ups that will bring out your eyes.
