Finding the right color pallet for blue eyes can be a challenge. Blue eyes are a very unique physical trait and not all products cater to them. With these helpful tips, you will be able to show off your baby-blues and enhance their beauty the way they deserve.
Use the Au Natural Look to Your Advantage
“The Natural Look” is making waves in the cosmetics scene for a good reason. It is the best way to enhance your natural features that make you unique. Using subtle colors will hide small imperfections and draw more attention to your eyes. Use colors that blend well with your skin tone. You can use a very small amount of white eye shadow on the inner corners of your eyes to highlight them. This will help your eyes catch more light and to make them look even brighter.
Eyeliner Is Your BFF
Eyeliner is arguably the most important tool in eye make-up. Just as important as the shape is the color of eyeliner you use. Eyeliner should be used as a frame for your natural eye shape, the same way you would frame a piece of artwork. The color should complement your eyes. Black eyeliner can be used as a dark contrast to your light eye color. You can also use a dark blue or purple for the same effect. A dark brown eye-liner can be used for your natural look.
Be Picky About Your Mascara
You should be picky about good make-up products in general, but choosing the mascara that works best for you can work wonders. Black mascara on already dark lashes can help better frame your eyes along with the right eye-liner. Be careful with bright colored mascara. Too much color around your eyes can be overwhelming.
Bright Colors for Special Occasions
Avoid colors that do not complement blue very well, such as red or orange. If you want to add color to your pallet without drowning out your eye color, go for colors that will act as a part of the canvas of your face. Greens, lighter blues, white, silver, and just hints of yellow can be blended together to create a surreal look around your eyes.
Be Careful with Darker Shades
You can go for darker shades of purple, blue, or brown blended with white or silver for a smoky-eye look. If you have a paler pigment, use darker shades of eye shadow sparingly. When done properly, your eyelid should look like the night sky with your blue iris as the moon. You can even use cosmetic rhinestones as stars, if you want to go all out for a special event.
