Make those blue eyes pop! Blue-eyed beauties should focus on contrasting the cool tone of their eyes with warm eye makeup colors to make them stand out. However, not everyone wants to wear a smoky eye or dark eye makeup all the time to achieve this look. Applying simple eye makeup colors will add sparkle to your blue eyes and is perfect for daytime, the office, lunch with your girlfriend or relaxing weekends.


Apply a neutral eyeshadow color, such as taupe or camel, from the top lash line all the way up to the brow bone. This will create an even-colored base for your eye makeup.


Add an accent color in a deeper hue that you used to apply as your base color such as a light brown or khaki color. Apply this color to the crease of your eye from the outer eye crease into the middle and blend well.


Curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. Curling your lashes will create a bright-eyed appearance, which will emphasize your eyes without overdoing it.


Apply a few coats of glossy, black mascara to your lashes. Wiggle the mascara wand back and forth slightly as you extend the color from the base of your lashes to the ends. This will completely coat your lashes with mascara. Apply to both top and bottom lashes.
