"[Eyes] are the window to your soul, so why not accentuate them with colours that compliment them best? It's a great way to express yourself, play with colour and bring out your personality," says Toronto makeup artist Victoria Fedosoff. "Eyeshadow can help one feel more confident about their appearance and can be used as a corrective technique to create the illusion of a more symmetrical eye shape."

Our affinity for eyeshadow goes as far back as ancient Egypt. Back then it was made out of kohl (a mixture of ochre, burnt almonds, copper, ash, malachite, chrysocolla and crushed antimony) and its purpose was both cosmetic and ritual.

Since then, eyeshadows have come a long way and are available in a myriad of colours and textures. Which shades will make your peepers pop?

For spring, Fedosoff tells us to embrace blue (you'll be seeing a lot of it gracing lids this season). But if it isn't your hue of choice, she recommends jewel tones like a rich purple or emerald green. For those who prefer a softer look, she suggests applying pink or rose tones on your lids as well as using cream shadows (both offer a more natural, subtle appearance). If none of these looks tickle your fancy, we've still got your covered. Whether your eyes are brown or blue, hazel or green, there is a perfect shade to make your peepers pop.
