Makeup Tips for Blue Eyes

February 3, 2014

Whether your eyes are pale blue, bright blue or blue-grey, your beautiful blue eyes are one of your most striking features. Make them pop with the right makeup tips and beauty products to make your blue eyes look their best.

Gorgeous greys
Reese Witherspoon’s subtle grey smokey eye is one of our favourite celebrity makeup looks. The shimmery grey brings out the sparkle in blue eyes. For night, add a little more liner and shadow to make the look more dramatic.

Our favourite products: Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow in Grege, a makeup artist must-have that is the number one product during awards season, is the perfect palette for blue eyes, with luxurious shades of grey and bronze.

Use copper tones
Eyeshadows in rust or copper tones are ideal for blue eyes, especially for a pretty, polished daytime look. The warm hue of the eyeshadow will make your eyes look even bluer, without being too overwhelming for the office. Finish the look with a few coats of black mascara to add more definition to your eyes.

Bronze liner
For blue eyes, there’s no better way to accent your eyes than with a bronze liner. Bronze makes your eyes look bigger and brighter. Apply a deep bronze liner along your top and bottom lash lines for a dramatic look that pairs well with rosy cheeks and a nude lip.

Our favourite products: Lancome Crayon Kohl in Bronze is the ultimate olive bronze that doubles as a soft eyeshadow by smudging across the lid.

Don’t forget beige liner
An eyeliner in a beige shade is always a great choice for blue eyes. The liner helps to wake up the eyes and makes the entire eye area appear more youthful. Always choose beige eyeliner instead of white if your eyes are blue, as white eyeliner tends to look “dirty” against blue eyes. Apply on the waterline, just under the lower lash line and on the inside of the eyes.

Our favourite products: Chanel Le Crayon Khol in Clair is a gorgeous shade of beige that brightens the eyes.
