Gorgeous blue eyes are an amazing asset to have, and anyone that does should feel incredibly lucky! Men love those baby blues. All you have to do is complement them with a great shade of eye shadow and you’re set.
The one rule of wearing makeup of any color is to choose the opposite of your starting color on a color wheel. When it comes to eye shadow for blue eyes, the most brilliant color choices will be rust, chocolate, autumn, or other shades of brown and orange. These colors will make your blue eyes pop!
There is a great trend right now for bold makeup, so don’t go light on the color. Make your eyes stand out by applying a deep chocolate brown on the lid and a lighter shimmer on the lid. Brown is a fantastic eye shadow for blue eyes.
Plum and other shades of purple will also do wonders for getting your baby blues noticed. I have found that a light lavender combined with a neutral gray or tan on your eyelids has an understated classic appearance. It is more than appropriate for everyday wear at work and can easily be converted into something dramatic and fun for going out in the evening.
The only colors that should be avoided at all cost for eye shadow for blue eyes are anything that matches them. A shade of blue that exactly matches your eyes should never be worn! For some reason, many people think putting on an eye shadow that matches your eye color is a good idea. But think of it this way: if you’re in a white shirt standing next to a white wall, how much do you pop out in a photo? It’s the same principle with eye shadow. Don’t wear blue eye shadow if you have blue eyes or they’ll blend together and make your eyes look dull.
A proper color combo works by making the contrast from the white part of your eyes extreme. If you’re worried about overdoing it with the dramatic eye shadow, don’t be too concerned. The key is to make your eyes stand out by keeping everything else neutral. Don’t wear a crazy bronzer on your skin; keep it natural-looking. In addition, don’t choose this time to apply a brightly colored lipstick. Keep the focus to your gorgeous blue eyes and you’ll look amazing no matter what your outfit.
