Baby blue, cobalt blue, sky blue – whatever shade of blue your eyes might be, they deserve great makeup. Knowing how to do eye makeup for blue eyes is a trick anyone with this feature should be familiar with. Do you know what color eyeshadow brings out blue eyes or what color makes blue eyes pop? The LaLa Daisy team shares some of their best tips for highlighting the natural beauty of blue eyes of every shade.
Choosing Eyeshadow Colors According to the Color Wheel
The color wheel is a tool artists and designers use to select colors that are attractive when placed together. Here are the basics:
- Choosing colors that are within one or two positions of each other is a technique for choosing complementary colors.
- Choosing colors that have opposite positions on the color wheel is a way to select attractively contrasting colors.
- Contrasting colors have the ability to emphasize each other in an appealing way.
This means that using the right contrasting eyeshadow will make the blue of your eyes look more intense and rich.
For a full range of contrasting colors perfect for blue eyes, try the PUR Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette. This collection features eight richly pigmented eyeshadow colors that can be used to create virtually any trending look.
Pale warm whites are included for highlighting; a rich espresso brown can be used to create added depth. This tutorial shows you how to use the full range of colors available in this eyeshadow palette to their fullest advantage.
To take advantage of the power of contrasting colors, choose warm tones like bronze to emphasize the color of your eyes. Just a touch of these eyeshadow colors is all that is required to bring out these special features. You can also use a complementary blue color to enhance your eyes’ natural blue color; navy blue is a traditional choice that many people with blue eyes continue to reach for. Another great eye shadow palette is The Balm Meet Mattetrimony. The Balm is one of our most popular eye shadow brands.
Crafting the Rest of Your Look
Makeup friendly to blue eyes does not stop at eyeshadow. There are several other choices you can make to emphasize the color of your eyes.
