Eye Makeup For Blue Eyes

Eye Makeup for Blue Eyes consists of colors, shades and tones that will do the most to compliment and accentuate your beautiful blues.
The tone and intensity of the color is as important as the color itself. If you have fair coloring and light blue eyes, you need to stick with lighter colors, as darker or more intense colors will overpower your eyes and you will look overly made up. If you have darker coloring and darker blue eyes you can get away with the more intense shades of eye shadow, eye liner and mascara.

While there is no single eye makeup color that is considered best for blue eyes, there are several eye makeup colors that will show off your baby blues.

If you are so fair that you have blonde or very light eye lashes, you would most likely be better off to stick with brown mascara and eyeliner, as the blacks will be too overwhelming. If you eyelashes are naturally dark you can wear black eye liner and mascara – always follow mother nature’s lead!

Dark blue (think navy) mascara and eyeliner is a good alternative to black and not only gives a slightly softer look, it can really emphasize the color of your eyes.

Best Eyeshadow For Blue Eyes

Pink or Peach colored eye shadow will accentuate the blue in your eyes. Go with a pink or peach all over your lid and add a darker color to the crease if you want a more defined look. If you want a darker shade, bronze is considered the “universal” eye shadow color for blue eyes because it is akin to orange, which is opposite from blue on the color wheel. This is also why peach and apricot shades work so well.

Other eye shadow colors that will compliment blue eyes are purples – violets, lilac, etc and greys, even metallic grey and silver.
Neutrals like taupe and soft browns can always be used, though don’t go too dark with the browns.
The best way to find your very best individual look is to experiment until you find the look you are looking for, but for a general rule you should stay away from blue and green eye shadows.
There are really no hard and fast rules about color eye shadows to wear if you have blue eyes. You can match your eye shadow to your clothing or go with neutral colors.

Makeup Tips for Blue Eyes

 Eye makeup for blue eyes depends on a variety of factors. These factors include the shade of blue in your eyes, your skin tone, and of course your overall outfit. In addition, the other makeup you wear needs to tie into whatever colors and effects you utilize on your eyes. For example, if you’ve gone dramatic with lipstick, you’ll probably want your eye makeup to be smoky or relatively neutral.

Eye Shadow:
There was a time when blue eye shadow wasn’t recommended for blue eyes. However, picking good blue tones can actually bring out various hues that naturally occur in your eyes. Other colors that seem effective in eye makeup for blue eyes include purple, turquoise, dark blue, violet, gray and of course natural colors.
For smoky eyes turn to camel, dark brown, charcoal, or copper.

Makeup For Blue Eyes: Eye Liner & Highlights
Unlike green-eyed women, you can wear black eyeliner. You can also wear blue. For highlighter, silver metallic, violet and lavender work (particularly on light-haired women). Lavender in the crease of your eyelid give a strong dramatic appeal but that’s best utilized at night. If you have red hair, use colors that have some brown in them. Note that you can sometimes wear gold tones too.
For mascara, consider dark blue (depending on the rest of the look you’re creating). This can look almost black but help accent the blue in your eyes.

Applying Blue Eye Makeup

The process for applying eye makeup for blue eyes is fairly consistent with other eye color methods. Begin with a good foundation that closely matches your skin tone. Use an under-eye concealer to down-play dark circles and fine age lines. Medium colors go in the crease of your eyelid. Darker colors go out the outer corner of your eye. If your eyes tend to look a little dull add some shimmer near your nose. Note that generally speaking darker haired / darker skin tones will let you use more intense shades in your makeup.
Finding the best eye makeup for blue eyes is often a matter of experimentation. Don’t be afraid to try blending different colors, or trying different looks. Each occasion has a slightly different style that should be reflected in your eyes. Nights on the town can be bold, while a day at the office generally requires neutral tones.
Be patient. No one becomes an eye makeup expert overnight!
