Blue Eyes

If you are a blue-eyed girl, you should go for the palettes that are orange, brown, gold, peach and pink. These color palettes complement the blue of your eye, allowing it to stand out. If you want to bring out the pupils, try the colors that focus on the outer corner of your eyes. Always finish your eye makeup with the coat of mascara. It is an essential step if you want to add intensity to your eyes. Try to avoid wearing the eyeshadows that are blue. It is a general rule for everyone. The blues and greens reduce the intensity of your eyes, making them appear dull.

Pink And Gold For Blue Eyes

The warm and shimmery pink eye color will give you a natural and the complete look. You could use shimmer a lot of time as it will help you create a more wide-eyed look. It is perfect for office wear. The warm golden-tone color creates a warm frame for blue eyes creating a contrast with the icy coolness of blue eyes. Not only this, but it also gives you a sun-kissed skin tone without the need of exposing too much under the sun.

Go Smokey With Blue Eyes

Since you guys don't require a lot of introduction just a little smokey eye makeup with bronze is good enough for accentuating the blue eyes well. Define the outer corners slightly and add the halo for making it just the right everyday wear. If you want to keep it a little low key, you can choose the smokey matt brown eye makeup. It will still create a mesmerizing look for your eye color. Don't make shimmer the part of your picture.
