Makeup Looks For Blue Eyes

Want to make your eyes really pop? Using the right eyeshadow can turn your eyes from pretty to breathtaking – mixed in with the correct techniques and tools. Whether you’re looking to spend $5 or $50 on your next eyeshadow, below are just a few suggestions which are best suited to blue eyes.

Orange

Let’s start with the colour wheel – in order to find a shade which will make your eyes pop, it’s always best to choose opposing colours. In this case, orange is perfect for making blue eyes look breathtaking. Use a cool orange shade and apply it all over your eyelid with a flat eyeshadow brush.

Copper

If you like using shimmering eyeshadows, then copper is definitely another shade to add to your kit. Dip your finger into the eyeshadow, and apply it with your fingers in the inner-corner of your eyes.

This really accentuates blue eyes, and makes them even more noticeable! A cream eyeshadow is also great for girls who suffer from oily eyelids – it’ll help your colour to stay on longer and avoid dreaded creasing!

Rust

Dark brown colours are ideal for bringing out the blue in your eyes. After you’ve applied the bulk of the eyeshadow on your lids, carefully line your eyes, and blend it out. This creates the basis of a signature smokey-eye look.

Purple

Alternatively, you can use a mauve or shimmery purple shadow to further accentuate your blue eyes. These shades are amazing on blue eyes, and help to make them look larger as well!

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eyeshadow in Cool Lilac, $42

Dusty rose

Rather than choosing a baby pink shade, choose a colour which incorporates beige tones as well. Run the product all over your eyelid, and create a smokey-eye with dusty rose and brown shades instead! When you’re done, line the inner corner of your eyes with a highlighting shade to give the illusion of bigger eyes.
