A few weeks ago I did a post on the best makeup colors for brown eyes and it was such a hit that I decided to put together a mini-series focusing on the best makeup colors for each eye color. Today we’re going to talk about the best makeup colors for blue eyes!
1) Bronze/Terra Cotta/Copper/Rust: The warmth of bronze balances out the cool tones of the blue and creates a gorgeous contrast that is quite striking. If you’re in the mood for something more subtle try lining your eyes in a metallic bronze eyeliner close to your lash line for a pop of color that will help your blue eyes to stand out. Blue and warm tones compliment each other beautifully and these warm metals are no exception!
2) Blue and orange are direct compliments to each other on the color wheel so it’s safe to say that orange eyeshadow is one of the best colors possible for blue eyes. If tangerine orange isn’t quite your cup of tea (though I still think you should try it! You might be surprised!) try reaching for a shimmering copper instead.
3)If you’re looking for jewel tones try reaching for purple over cobalt or emerald. Blue eyes tend to get lost in emerald and blue eyeshadows but purple has the right amount of balance between blue and red to help blue eyes stand out.
4) When going for a smoky eye try to stay away from black and reach for rich brown, gold, and soft pink instead. Black has a tendency to look too artificial and harsh against the light color of blue eyes. Grey even looks phenomenal!
5) Turquoise/Navy: This one might come as a shock but hear me out. I know I’ve spent almost this entire post talking about ways to compliment blue eyes with contrasting colors BUT did you know that you can also compliment your blue eyes with the right blue colors? I wouldn’t recommend using blue eyeshadow since it has a tendency to overwhelm blue eyes but turquoise liner or navy mascara is a great option for a fun pop of color to help bring out those baby blues.
What do you think? If you have blue eyes how do you like to bring them out? Did I list any of your favorite color combinations? Comment below and let me know!
Until next time 🙂
