All About the Eyes

As noted previously, the past several months I've become interested in colour theory as it pertains to beauty/fashion. Specifically, I've focussed on learning the colours that suit me best based on my combination of skin tone, hair colour and eye colour.

Through this latest fixation of mine, I've made some startling discoveries. A recent one was that despite having spent my life wearing various blues because my eyes are grey, blue is not my best colour. In fact, my best colour seems to be- gasp- green. Even more shocking though if my discovery, courtesy of an artist friend of mine, that my eyes change colour depending on the light I'm in and the colour of the clothing I'm wearing. Once she told me this, I started researching eye colour, and found out that yes, grey eyes are known for doing just that. Imagine my surprise when I subsequently started noticing the startlingly different shades of grey, blue and green that my eyes change between.

I've decided that while my eyes are technically grey- and yes, I will argue with the DMV forever if they try to mark blue again on my driver license- they are actually mainly a turquoise/aqua colour. As usual though, I'd love to hear people's opinion about what colour they think they are. To that end, here's a photo:

Please enter your votes- blue, green, aqua, turquoise, whatever!


  1. I don't know what aqua is, so I am voting blue!

  2. Thanks for the vote SW! I see you're siding with the DMV though. ;)

    FYI, aqua and turquoise are both blue-greens, similar to the Pacific and Caribbean oceans, respectively.

    Alright, that's one vote for plain ol' blue!
