Makeup tips for blue eyes

Blue eyes can be intensified with copper, peach, rust, and gold shadows.

At one point everyone had brown eyes but a genetic mutation caused the melanin produced in the iris to reduce, and caused the brown shade to lighten into blue. (http://www.livescience.com/health/080131-blue-eyes.html)  Blue is a beautiful color with calming effects, maybe because it reminds us of the ocean. There are many colors that can be used to accentuate and play up such a great feature!

Accentuate blue eyes with these makeup tips 🙂

  • Try white eyeliner or a shimmering silver one on your lower lash line to open eyes rather than black liner which makes eyes appear smaller.

  • Use brown mascara for a softer look and black mascara for a more dramatic effect.
  • Dark green, navy blue, deep purple, or grey eyeliner also looks great around blue eyes.
  • Keep the rest of your makeup minimal to draw attention to those blue peepers.
  • Soft pink and peachy eye shadows blend well with blue eyes.
