Two women wear purple, internet breaks. Every guy wears exact same thing, no one cares.
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.
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.
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.

Does Reese Witherspoon ever have a celebrity style misstep? Luckily we’ve got the exact beauty products and makeup tips used to create Reese’s glowing Golden Globes makeup, direct from her celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh.
Mai started by hydrating the skin with La Praire Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, then creating a flawless base with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.
She then applied the soon-to-be-released Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation with a sponge, concealing any blemishes and under eye circles with Laura Mercier Secret Concealer and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.
To get Reese’s natural glow, Mai layered two blushes on the apples of the cheeks: one cream, one powder. This creates a gorgeous glow-from-within and your blush lasts much longer. She started with Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline and then topped it with Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Peach Whisper.
When you’re doing makeup for weddings or events and using a lot of beauty products, you want to finish with a setting powder and a light dusting of bronzer to make it look natural and not too makeup-y. Mai set the look using Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent, and swept Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Powder Bronze over the forehead, cheeks and chin (this bronzer smells divine!).
Mai created a soft smokey eye by mixing Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours in Sand Glow and Cocoa and applying the colour from the inside of the eyelid, blending it towards the outer lid.
Next, she applied Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow on the entire lid and blended. On the outer crease, she used Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Earth Glow.
After that she lined Reese’s eyes with Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Brown Copper – this colour really makes the eyes pop.
Finally, she coated the lashes in Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara in Black.
We love Reese’s your-lips-but-better lip colour. Mai used Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Play, topping it with Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bellini. This is a great all-day lip gloss that suits most skin tones.
