Did you know blue eye makeup will flatter any eye color?  It’s true!  The trick is to find the right shade to make your eyes stand out.  Follow my guide according to your eye color or to bring out the less prominent shades in your eyes.  Read on to find out my picks for best blues for any eye color!

Hazel – Pop the orange flecks in hazel eyes when you wear shades of navy.

Bobbi Brown blue

Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow – Midnight Bobbi Brown, $21.00 This vibrant navy color with shimmer is the ultimate contrast to bring out the beauty of hazel eyes!  Swipe it on the lid as well as lower lash line for the most effect.

Guerlain blue

Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette – Les Bleus Nordstrom, $60.00 This luxury palette is specially created with coordinating shades that can intensify the hazel gal’s pretty peepers.  Loving the accent shades along with the intense blue in this one!

Brown – Since brown does not have a contrast color any shade of blue will work with brown eyes.

Ulta blue

  1. I love your site. Been seeing lots of blues in mag editorials, but always felt it was tricky to pull off in broad daylight. Amped up to try it out after reading this post. Thanks!

  2. Hi Lisa! So glad you are now psyched to try blues, thanks for reading!

  3. I just picked up a GORGEOUS blue from Trish McEvoy. I can’t wait to rock it on my mom nights out and a big conference at the end of May. I never thought much about blue (it was WAY over used in high school), but I have now seen it work it such a beautiful way I can’t wait to show it off more.

  4. Hi Keryn! I will be googling the Trish McEvoy shades, thanks for the recommendation :).
