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.

Consider 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.

Learn the basics of eye makeup application beginning with determining the shape of your eyes.

PROTRUDING or BULGING EYE - The goal here is to recess the eyelid, from seemingly to protrude. Uses a dark toned eye shadow and blend this over the eyelid, fading color away near eye socket. Apply eyeliner along top lid, and lightly smudge. On lower lid, draw eyeliner at outer corner only and smudge softly. Apply highlighter on brow line. Please don�t use light or frosted colors on eyelid, as this will make eyes pop out further. With this eye shape, finish off with some navy or deep gray pencil on inner rims to help make the eyeballs appear smaller.

CLOSE SET EYES - These need a dark shadow blended into out half of the eyes to give illusion that they are further apart. Start by drawing your pencil out a little just above natural eye crease. Now blend a strong color into the outer area. The inner top lid area can be left natural or a pale color can be used if you like. When applying mascaras, brush your top lashes outwards, concentrating on the color with an extra coat on outer lashes

WIDE SET EYES - Can appear closer set and more attractive if you emphasize the inner eye area with color to draw eyes together. Apply eyeliner pencil all way across the bottom lid with only a tiny extension on the outer corners. Apply any strong colored shadow to your outer socket line, but instead of extending it up and out, angle it towards your inner brows. Further enhance this with a lighter shade on your inner lid and complete the look with mascara concentrating on inner lashes.

SMALL EYES - to recognize this as your shape, there seems to be very little space between lashes and eyebrows, so we need to give the appearance of a much larger eye. Apply a light color on the eyelid. Use a darker shade in the socket (or crease) of eye and bring this color to the outer corner to lengthen eye area. With dark toned eyeliner, outline eye, intensifying color slightly at outer edges of eye, then slightly smudge. Use a light highlighter along the brow bone to add width to eye.

DEEP SET EYES - This type appears like a hooded eye. Place a light colored shadow over entire lid, and apply a highlighter along the brow bone line. Use a darker toned shadow, and begin at the socket line and blend color out above the crease to recess the area. Use a small amount of eyeliner, in a thin line for definition only along top lid and 2/3'rds along lower lid blending towards the outer edge.

ASIAN EYE SHAPE - usually has a minimal eyelid and eyes are wide space. Gently brush a light or neutral color over eye area and blend towards nose area. Using a darker shadow, apply to lid, starting along lash line, and fading the color upwards and out to a half-way pint between lash and eyebrow. Apply eyeliner close to lashes to give appearance of thickened lash line. Line the lower lid and smudge to soften the line.

NORMAL EYES - If you are fortunate enough to have this shape you can be as adventurous as you like. What you should be aiming for with eye makeup is to make your eyes look even more attractive by giving them strength with the help of eyeliner pencil. A pale color can be blended on lid while a darker shade is smoothed into the outer corners and socket line to give more depth and character. Finish off with a coat of mascara.

DROOPY EYES - These need to be lifted at the sides with the help of clever shading on the outer areas of the top lid. A little extra eyeliner slanted upwards on the corners and further blended and subtly extended with shadow plus extra mascara on the top lashes.

AGEING EYES - can look years younger with the help of soft contouring. Use eyeliner pencil around the outer corner of the eyes, making sure that the line is kept thin. Avoid frosted shadows completely. Apply a soft toned shadow, like a mossy green, light brown or gray with a hint of blue in it, to the outer eye area, keeping the color close to the lashes. Use a soft peach color on your inner top lid. Mascara often looks too thick and unnatural on older eyes, so try to have lashed tinted instead OR apply mascara lightly. Then apply your Mascara: Take out the mascara wand and roll it on a tissue to remove any excess product. (Don't pump the wand in the tube -- you'll introduce air and dry out the mascara.) Hold the wand at the base of the lashes, give the wand a wiggle and pull it through the lashes. Build volume with several thin layers rather than a single goopy one. Clumps? Comb them out with an eyelash comb or a disposable plastic wand.

Modern Eye Makeup Ideas

Although the world of eye makeup is tremendous, starting out with a few ideas can be helpful inspiration. Here are eight fresh ways to update your eye makeup look for any season.

Youthful Shimmer
You'll often see models and celebrities sporting a lightly shimmering bronze or gold soft smoky eye, and for good reason. This look makes the eyes appear youthful and the lashes extra-long. To get this look, you'll need three eye shadow colors in the gold or bronze family: a light, medium and darker version of this shade. Choose a palette with a slight shimmer.

1. Apply the darkest color first in the crease.
2. Then use the medium shade as a liner along the top of the eye.
3. Use the medium shade again to line under the lower eye, going about three-quarters of the way in under the lower lash line (this tip works for most eyeliner to make the eyes look larger).
4. Use the highlight shade along the lower lash line below the medium shade, in the inner corner of the eye, and at the brow bone.

For extra definition, apply a thin line of brown or bronze liquid liner along he top lash line. Curl lashes and use lengthening mascara.

Smoky Eye with Metallic Highlight
This unique eye look was first spotted on the runways in spring 2011. While the graphic look sported by some models is too much for most women, you can easily translate this into a softer but still unique look that makes the eyes appear larger. Here's how you get the effect:

* Use a pale neutral or pastel shade to create a slight triangle from the inner corner of the eye up to the front of the brow and blend slightly outward.
* Then choose a soft neutral (such as taupe) and apply it in the crease of the eye and pull the color straight across (as if it is the bottom of the triangle).
* Use a natural-looking mascara to complete the look.

For a more original take on the look, you can also try it with a coordinating shade of matte shadow.

Smoky Eye with Metallic Highlights
Wearing a smoky eye is always popular, and there are limitless ways to reinvent the look. For a unique style, use a light metallic eye shadow color to highlight a dark or jewel-toned smoky eye (use a silver highlight for cool colors like black, grey, blue or purple and use a gold highlight for a warmer smoky eye in brown, copper, or green).

Use the highlight shade both above the eye and below the liner under the eye for the most dramatic effect.

Pastel Eye Shadow
Using pastel eye shadow can look fresh, modern, and pretty. Tips for using pastels include the following:

* Choose a color the complements your skin tone, and apply on the top lid and under the lower lash line.
* Women with larger eyes can get away with completing the look with black mascara, but women with smaller eyes or whose eyes tend to look washed out should apply eyeliner in a neutral color (simple black, brown, or grey - the goal is to just define the eye, not for the eyeliner to stand out) along the top lash line only.
* Make sure to finish with mascara, or the eyes will look lost in the makeup.
* Keep the rest of the makeup palette on the light side to balance the look.

Bright Pearl Eyeliner
Bright, bold, or colored eyeliner is a fresh look that really draws attention to the eyes, but if you like to play it safe with your eye makeup, you can pull off this look too. The trick to using a bold liner if you want a more natural look is to pair it with a very neutral eye shadow (one to two shades lighter or darker than your skin tone) and apply the liner only to the top or bottom lash line.

For an original take on the bright eyeliner trend, use a pearl or shimmer eyeliner.

Classic Eyeliner in a Rich Shade
If you've never used liquid eyeliner, now is the perfect time to try it. The classic winged cat-eye look has never been more popular. Although it originated in the 50s, this eyeliner look offers a fresh, crisp appearance that is flattering to nearly any eye shape or size, making it a modern winner. You can also vary the liner to be as simple (a thinner line with a slight outward flick at the corner of the eye) or dramatic (a thicker, darker line that gets more obvious at the outer corner and has a pronounced wing) as you like to fit your style. The trick to application is to practice; apply liner in a smooth motion with a steady hand.

Black never goes out of style, but for a modern interpretation, try a rich shade like cocoa, plum, or teal.

The Nearly-Nude Eye
This look covers those who love makeup and those who prefer it on the light side. It might look bare, but a little careful prep work ensures this look is flawless.

* Prep the eye with concealer and use a cream base eye shadow in a nude color.
* Apply a light neutral like taupe or very light brown eye shadow in the crease and just barely under the lash line.
* Blend well with a dusting of translucent powder and dot kohl liner in a color close to your natural lashes along the top lash line and blend.
* Curl lashes and use clear mascara or one a shade or two darker than your natural lashes; be careful not to overload the product.

Brighten the nearly-nude eye up even more with a slight dusting of shimmer eye shadow (in a shade just lighter than your skin tone) in the inner and outer corners of the eyes. Then line the inner rim of the eye with white, cream, or peach eyeliner to make the eyes appear larger.

Bold Color Trios
Using three different and bold color shades on the eyelid is a unique, contemporary, and fun eye makeup look. It's a style that modern pigments are perfect for. This look calls for rich color, and pigments deliver it. Apply three distinct shades that have a relationship or harmony. For example, a sunset-inspired trio might include red, orange, and gold; a berry trio might include plum, purple-blue, and light violet. Use your imagination to come up with interesting combination. Use a neutral eyeliner and mascara to define the eye.

Try New Eye Makeup Styles
Eye makeup ideas are limitless. The continually growing range of eye makeup colors and products means there will always be something new to explore. Try looks and colors that call out to your personal sense of style, but don't be afraid to try those outside your comfort zone too. Sometimes the most unexpected color combination or application technique turns out to be the one you love.

Green eyes sometimes get a bad rap (they are, after all, associated with being envious), but they're uniquely beautiful and fun to make up since different eye shadow colors appear to alter their intensity. If you have green eyes, be smug in the knowledge that you are part of a small population. Green eyes are rare and therefore meant to be celebrated with a wide variety of makeup looks. If you don't have green eyes, but want to get the look, experiment with green colored contacts. New options range from deep jade to bright emerald. Try on the best makeup for green eyes now in our virtual makeup studio.

You know the adage "opposites attract"? It's certainly true for eye makeup. Bring out green eyes with makeup that is red-based. Opt for raisin-colored eyeliner and plum eye shadow. If your green eyes are close-set, separate them by using a lighter pencil (think mauve) from the inner corner to the middle of your eye. The darker plum tones should be used at the outer edges of the eye. If your green eyes are droopy, perk them up by applying the darker purple at the inner eye and use lighter colors toward the outer edges.

To make the most of your eye makeup, try plum colored mascara instead of black. Lashes should be clean and free of all traces of makeup before you apply it. Curl your lashes and apply a lash fortifier made from tiny fibers that appear to lengthen and thicken your lashes. For optimum volume, move the wand straight out from the roots, rather than moving it in a sideways-pointing direction. Forward-pointing lashes always look lusher and longer. Your plum colored lashes will bring out green eyes and encourage you to flirt up a storm.

“Vibrant shadows look great with black,” says makeup maestro Pat McGrath, who used onyx eye shadow and soft black pencil to make CoverGirl’s emerald eye shadow smolder at the Issa spring 2010 show. Inspired by tropical storms and lush-colored jungles, McGrath finished the layered look with a touch of gold along the inner corners, a dash of turquoise on the outer edges, and “lots of mascara.”

"Green eyes set you apart from the ubiquitous blue-eyed blondes and brown-eyed girls. They up the ante in any flirting situation."

If you have green eyes, makeup should not be a problem for you to select and use. There are a number of beautiful colors that will add to the depth and personality of your eyes too! In fact, if you are lucky enough to have green eyes, you are well on your way to a stunning, exciting look that everyone else can be jealous of. Many crave the color you have. Now, you just need to find out how to enhance this shade with make up products.

To make your green eyes truly gorgeous, go for the gold! Warm, shimmery shades of bronze, copper, and gold are the perfect complement. Try an eyeshadow palette with several shades to take the guesswork out of matching.

Perhaps try a pimento brown – this contains a subtle red undertone that is cooled & tamed by the dominating brown. Many women with green eyes have fair skin and freckles. If you have a light complexion, try to avoid eye shadow that is too deep or shimmery. However, some women with green eyes have olive skin. These women should avoid silver and blue shadows.

All women with green eyes look great in brown colors from light beiges to deep chocolate browns. Purples and pinks also complement with green eyes. Some people will suggest that you shouldn't wear green shadow if you have green eyes. However, light green can be very flattering when applied sparingly.
