The Best Eyeshadow Colors to Try If You Have Blue Eyes
The best eyeshadow for your eye color is whatever shade you feel like wearing on that given day, but it's proven that some shadows will enhance certain eye colors more than others.
It all comes down to color theory: colors on opposite sides of the color wheel will complement one another. As for what eyeshadow colors will make blue eyes pop, think warm shades like orange, brown, peach, and terracotta, along with shimmery champagne and rich berry.
"Depending on how dramatic or how natural you're looking to go, I like to use colors that are almost opposites of the eye to create contrast and really bring out the overall eye color," says Neil Scibelli, a New York City-based celebrity makeup artist.
Deciding on an eyeshadow color is only one half of the equation. Eddie Duyos, Make Up For Ever Pro Makeup Artist & Senior Manager of Pro Education & Artistry, suggests considering what vibe you want to give off with your makeup.
"I like to approach it [eye makep] like a game. It's more of, 'who do I want to be today? Do I want to feel powerful, or am I feeling more subtle and romantic? What is it that I want the world see today?'" Duyos shares. "Aside from the normal makeup concerns like skin type, breakouts, discoloration, etc., have fun with makeup no matter what anyone says, and allow it to help you be and feel the best version of yourself every day."
With that in mind, both makeup artists break down the eyeshadow colors that really make blue eyes standout. See how celebrities are wearing the shades on the red carpet to get inspiration for your own eye makeup looks.
