31 Eye Makeup Ideas for Blue Eyes

When we choose our makeup, many people tend not to think about the colour of their eyes.  They go for the latest trending colour and their eye colour doesn’t even enter their heads.  This is where many girls could show off their eyes even more so, with suitable colours for their eyes.  Bear in mind that what works for someone with dark brown eyes, may not work for someone with bright blue eyes.  Everyone is different and of course, you want to know how to enhance and show off your beautiful eyes.  Neutral and earthy tones tend to work well with any colour eyes but you can always do lighter or darker for shades.  You can also add glitter and there are so many different methods and styles that you can try too.

When we go out, we want to feel perfect and when we feel like this, this can boost our confidence.  These different colours and effects will show off your gorgeous blue eyes so have fun experimenting this summer and we can guarantee you will not look back!  Take a look at our 31 makeup ideas for blue eyes.

26. Dark Gold Smokey Eye

If you’re not feeling the bright colours, go for a shade darker. This is a gorgeous dark gold smokey eyed look.  As you can see, it still looks amazing and it doesn’t have to be bright.  Choosing the right colour eyeshadow depends on what you are wearing that day, your mood and the event you are going to.  Have fun choosing your shade!

27. Champagne & Purple Eye Look

Who would have thought that champagne and purple look so good together? This photo proves that they look amazing and so elegant.  People tend to blend both colours together on the eyelid but with this look, the two colours are kept separately.  Purple is on the lower lash area only and the champagne on the eyelid.  Add a touch of white to the corner of your eye to finish the look.

28. Brown & Copper Smokey Eye

These are two neutral and natural tones together. You can use any colours with the smokey effect but these two colours are recommended.  With all the new colours trending, everyone seems to forget the base colours such as brown.  Brown and copper are two peas in a pod.  You can see from the photos that they both complement one another.  The copper is used for the eyelids, whilst the brown is used for the waterline, lower lashes.  By using the colours in this order, the copper colour will open up your eyes.  Add a hint of white to the upper eye section and the corner of your eye to emphasis the colours.

29. Silver Glitter Eye Makeup Look

Everyone loves a bit of glitter! To be honest, glitter on eyelids looks dreamy.  It can add glamour and sparkle to your outfit and it can even brighten your mood.  This is understandable, who wants to be a Debbie Downer when they have gorgeous eyes!  Silver glitter takes the dreaminess to another level.  Blue and silver glitter looks romantic and sexy.

30. Cat Eye + Bright Lower Lash Line

Don’t forget having cat eyes! I know we have mentioned a lot of gorgeous colours and looks in this article but don’t forget about experimenting with cat eyes.  Cat eyes with a bright colour lower lash look pretty and the cat eye adds the dramatic look.  Team your cat eyes with this gorgeous purple mauve colour lipstick.  If you choose to have a matte finish lipstick with cat eyes, it will still focus on your eyes and people will be drawn to your wings.

31. Brown Smokey Eye

Brown smokey eyes are sensational. We know from above that gold, copper tones are incredible but what about the brown shades.  It’s good to have a selection of colours in your makeup bag but don’t forget the basic colours.  You don’t have to think that just because it’s a basic brown colour, that the finished look will be boring and bland.  Take a look at this photo above.  This is brown and it looks amazing.  It shows off your beautiful blue eyes.  Brown eyeshadows look incredible when you use the smokey technique.  Also, if you have a brown based eyeshadow tone, you will be able to wear any colour outfit and look great.  This works for the lipstick colour too, nudes and pink shades work so well.
