Rather than creating looks and products based around themes or fashion, Charlotte Tilbury has announced a range of new timeless eyeshadow palettes designed to suit every eye colour.
The range, called Eye Colour Magic, features four new palettes in Charlotte’s Luxury range designed to make your eyes sparkle using colour theory. As we explain in our colour theory guide, it’s a theory used by artists – both traditional and makeup – to enhance features through the use of complementary colours.
A colour’s complementary colour is found directly opposite it on the colour wheel and when these two colours are placed side-by-side, they create contrast which acts to accentuate certain features. Alternatively, when they’re mixed, they help to cancel each other out or at least they help to neutralise the strength of one of the colours.

With this in mind, the four new Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palettes are aimed at enhancing the four main eye colours – blue, brown, green and hazel.
Of course, only because these palettes have been developed with these eye colours in mind, it doesn’t mean you’re only allowed to use the one for your particular colour.
The Rebel isn’t a brand new palette, it’s been on sale for some time but it’s being almost rebranded as part of the new range. It features khaki, olive and cool gold tones targeted at hazel eyes but because green is in the centre of the colour wheel, it’s universally flattering, making it the perfect shade for all eye colours.
This new palette consists of four bronze-copper tones including a champagne gold, rose-copper, russet brown and gold shimmer pan designed to make blue eyes sparkle. These colours also suit brown eyes.
This palette can be paired with the new Eye Colour Magic Liner Duo in Copper Charge eyeliner.
This blue eyeshadow palette features hues of gold, navy and shimmering blues to make brown eyes pop. It can also brighten blue eyes.
Like the Copper Charge palette, the Super Blue palette has a matching Eye Colour Magic Liner Duo in Super Blue eyeliner.
Finally, the Luxury palette designed with green eyes in mind is called Mesmerising Maroon and shades of maroon, purple, violet and champagne pink. These complementary opposites make olive tones in green eyes look emerald and are matched by the Eye Colour Magic Liner Duo in Mesmerising Maroon.
