Eyeshadows for Blue Eyes
Blue eyes naturally have a calm intensity complimented best by warm tones in a variety of hues – not just your typical shades of brown.
As a blue-eyed gal myself, I have over time, and with a little trial and error, come to understand the best shades to enhance and brighten my baby blues. Since blue is a cool tone, choosing warm colors on the opposite side of the color wheel, in shades of orange and neutrals as example, will bring out the depth and vibrancy in your eyes.
Need a little help? I’ve compiled a little cheat sheet with my favorite recommendations for all you other blue-eyed beauties out there.
Grey tones: Flattering and versatile, grey tones allow for additional depth and dimension without being overpowering or distracting. Try Zen Pearluster Eyeshadow and By Night’s After Hours Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow for a smoky look.
Orange tones: Colors such as peach and rust contrast with your enchanting blue as they fall on opposite sides of the color spectrum. Try Silk, and Cimarron Pearluster Eyeshadows and Auburn and Mohair Satin Matte Eyeshadow to bring out the vibrancy and coolness of the eyes.
Gold tones: These reflect and highlight a subtle and playful glint in your irises. Vertigo Pearluster Eyeshadow from the By Night collection is insanely gorgeous and also Chai and Pyrite Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows as well as Camel Pearluster Eyeshadow.
Brown tones: Shades of brown are alluring on just about everyone and brilliantly emphasize your blue tones whether worn strong or subtle, smoky or soft. Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows in Tigereye and Brown Sugar as well as Cappuccino Pearluster Eyeshadow are perfect for an everyday look. If you gravitate towards mattes try out Cocoa Satin Matte Eyeshadow and I promise you won’t regret it!
Wildcard: Labyrinth Pearluster Eyeshadow is a deep teal shade that actually suits blue eyes like you wouldn’t believe. It’s bold but is a dusty green perfect for a night out that looks so naturally gorgeous.
P.S. To finish off your blue eyed look, finish it off with two coats of Brown Natural Definition Mascara.
