People with blue eyes usually run up against the problem of choosing the right color that can accentuate the color of their eyes. Choose the right color and the brilliance of your blue eyes will knock people off their feet; but, choose the wrong one and your eyes could look pale and watery. So, what are the colors that can be used for eye makeup for blue eyes? There are a whole range of colors that you can safely experiment with, and a lot also depends on what kind of look you are trying to achieve – natural, dramatic, or classic.

Here are some makeup tips for blue eyes that you don’t want to miss out on. Follow them and you will soon be able to tell which colors naturally complement the color of your eyes, your skin tone and even the color of your hair.

Eye Shadow for Blue Eyes

Choosing the right shade of eye shadow is essential to all kinds of eye makeup. For blue eyes, the rule of the thumb is to use shades that contrast with the natural color of your eyes. Therefore, colors like gray, taupe, camel, browns, charcoal, blacks, pink, fuschia, copper, lilac, violet, silver, and gold would be your best bet. Unless you have really dark blue eyes, do not apply blue eye shadow. They are bound to make the colors of your eyes pale in comparison.

Choosing Eyeliner for Blue Eyes

When it comes to eye makeup for blue eyes there is one very simple and easy to remember rule – the darker the shade of the eyeliner, the more brilliant your eyes are going to look. For this reason, go in for eyeliners in shades of dark blue, shades of brown and black, and dark green. Lavenders, pale purples and pinks also work really well with blue eyes.

If you are too scared to try any color whatsoever, use some shimmer or a liquid white sparkle eye pencil. It may be more of a stark effect but the sparkle they lend to your eyes will be interesting.

Keep the Mascara Minimal

The mascara for blue eyes should be limited to the basic black. If you feel the need to be a little bolder and experiment, then go in for dark blue mascara. For blue eyes, make up is primarily dependent on the eye shadow and eyeliner. These two together create the maximum effect. The mascara complements blue eyes better when you are opting for a nude look with some shimmer or glitter on the eyes.

Towards the end, let me add that the best kind of eye makeup for blue eyes has come out of people who wished to experiment with different colors and shades. While there are some rules to applying makeup, they shouldn’t stop you from playing with colors occasionally. If you try a certain color or look and you feel that you are able to carry it off well and it looks good on you, let nobody tell you anything different. At the end of the day, it’s about you feeling good about yourself. That’s what real beauty is about.
