Blue Eyes

Oranges or pink shades work wonders on blue eyes! This is because these shades contrast with your beautiful blue eyes and really enhance the blue! However, we are aware that not everyone is super comfortable wearing bright colours on their eyes. If this is the case, we recommend you start of lightly and built up the colour until you’re happy with it. This will still enhance the blue in your eyes but will give you a more natural look!

Shimmery shades also work very well with blue eyes. Shimmery shades such as gold or champagne eyeshadow colours work best. These eyeshadows complement blue eyes. Why not try adding a shimmer to your inner corners you could even just use a highlighter to do this. To enhance the shimmer, apply some setting spray to your brush and then apply it to your inner corners.

Neutral colours if you’re looking for more natural colours rather than oranges or pinks, try neutral tones. These colours will still enhance those blue eyes without bringing too much attention to them.
