Blue eyes are beautiful as they are, but if you’re looking for a little enhancement or wanting to create a more adventurous look for an evening or event, then you can’t go wrong following the basic colour theory to find the best eyeshadow colour for blue eyes.
Complementary to the colour blue is orange, sitting directly opposite on the colour wheel. With orange being in total contrast to blue, the two colours together appear more vibrant when side by side. When looking for the right eyeshadow shade to suit blue eyes, we advise to opt for warm, earthy tones with an orangey undertone like gold, bronze, copper, coral or peach to make your blue eyes pop.
For a natural daytime look, blend a bronzy brown shade with creamy hue’s to create a sophisticated yet subtle effect. These understated eyeshadow tones make for a perfectly peachy everyday look. From the EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow range, we recommend those with blue eyes should try shades Natural Blond, Urban Cream and Creamy Jade.
For an evening eyeshadow look, choose deeper brownish shades combined with shimmer to create a more dramatic appearance and make your blue eyes dazzle. Copper, bronze and rust are great colour options, fading into metallic gold or champagne on the upper eyelid and brow bone. From the EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow range, we recommend shades Romantic Sunset, Romanesque, Crème Brulee, Ayers Rock or Wild Honey, finished off with the EyeMajic Moisturizing Eyeliner pencil.
For a more unusual look, those with blue eyes can also play around with cooler eyeshadow shades that mimic their own eye colour. Applying silvery blue eyeshadow colours will enhance the natural tones in blue eyes, making for a mesmerizing look. Try EyeMajic in shades Moody Blue or Optimistic to achieve your very own blue steel.
