Makeup Tips For Blue Eyes

Makeup tips for blue eyes don't have to be boring. There are wealth of colors and tricks to emphasize your baby blues. After mastering the basics be daring and try something unexpected. Blue eyes are beautiful- it's up to you to show them off.

Sometimes it's easiest to learn which colors look better on blue eyes, start with those, and then branch out to the colors that you are personally drawn to. Most women have the ability to choose colors that are complimentary to them. Experimentation is key! If a color isn't mentioned here, it doesn't mean it's off limits. These are merely guidelines.

Colors For Blue Eyes

There are some colors that seem to be made for blue eyes. Icy pink, silver, gold, and violet all come to mind. Expand your selection by also choosing taupe, gray, and other purples, like lavender. You can't go wrong with these staple colors.

Want to add a little "oomph" to your makeup? Try bright blue! Hey, even if you've always heard blue eyeshadow is "out", try it. You'll be surprised just how good it can look when applied correctly. A little at the outside corner of the eyes makes an impact and will make your eyes pop.

Also try turquoise, and if your eyes have green in them, mint green is a great choice. Bright pinks and fuchsia are idea for blue eyes as well. If you really want to mix it up, add a light layer of black under another bright color. It will look striking and is usually best for nightwear.

Application Tips

Now that you've got the colors down, how about some application tips. As mentioned above, blue eyeshadow can be fabulous, or horrible, depending on the application. Here are a few easy tips to keep your eyeshadow from straying off into unknown territory.

Here's an example of a day look:

1. Apply silver shadow from your eyelashes to your eyebrow.

2. Then apply lavender from your eyelashes to just above the crease in your eyelid. Blend it well into the silver so there isn't a distinct line.

3. Now choose violet and apply it in a sideways "v"; from the middle of your eyelid to the outer corner. Blend very, very well. When it's done right it looks like a gradual change of color, not distinct lines of color.

4. Line your eyes with charcoal or dark gray eyeliner.

5. Apply mascara.

You can adjust the colors to icy pink with fuchsia, light and dark turquoise, gold and taupe, gray and bright blue, gray and light blue, silver and bright blue, taupe and green, etc. The list goes on and on.

Just play around until you start seeing combinations you like. Eye makeup is fun and the best way to have fun is to experiment, even with colors that are outside your comfort zone. A little color goes a long way so exercise restraint and you will start to see just how glamorous your blue eyes can really be.
